Meet The Team


David O'Connell

P: (636) 489-8306

David O’Connell is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Law. While still in law school, he worked for the Refugee Appeal Board in South Africa where he assisted the Board in making refugee policy decisions and offered suggestions for making the refugee appeals process more efficient. After that, he worked at the Supreme Court of Missouri where he learned firsthand how the highest court in Missouri works. David then worked in the Family Violence Clinic where he advocated for victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. Upon graduation, David began his career at a well respected insurance defense firm in St. Louis. There he learned how insurance companies think and how they value cases. He now uses his knowledge to advocate for injured people against insurance companies. David recognizes that the law is inherently a service industry and works hard to be a faithful servant to his clients. In his free time David enjoys boxing, camping, playing board games, and listening to the Beatles.
