After almost two years of struggling with the untimely and unnecessary death of my husband and father of my children in a scuba diving accident off the Kona, HI coast I met John O’Connell of Lee, Myers & O’Connell.
John worked tirelessly to understand our case and the many factors that would impact the outcome of our lawsuit with a clear goal to achieve the highest results possible for our family. This included seeking to understand all aspects of the events that lead to my husband’s death through comprehensive research and in depth preparation for completion of depositions, court filings and tireless work to present and make our case during trial. Work on our case required extensive travel over long distances and multiple time zones all the while remaining accessible and responsive to conferences and updates to me and our family. I came to respect and trust John both professionally and personally.
John provided individual insight and expertise on all matters, listened to the perspective of everyone involved in the case incorporating, sharing, expanding or refuting defense ideas and information expertly.
The loss of a loved one suddenly and unnecessarily is devastating, exposing that pain, treasured memories and maintaining composure during depositions and trial is difficult to say the least. John took care not only to protect and guide our family through the process but also to fiercely protect our interests and get the best trail result possible and we were successful.
John O’Connell is honest, compassionate and dedicated to his clients. He has built a strong bond of trust and friendship with our family, one that we will always value and be grateful for.
