    Chris came highly recommended for a personal injury case from a number of people. He expressed concern for how I felt and helped me weed through referrals for doctors through my recovery. He was very patient with me and helped me understand the lengthy process of litigation. He clearly knew the ins and outs of the system and was thorough in his correspondence with me so I knew what was happening. Everyone in his office was professional and kind. I would recommend him to friends and family.

    Let me start by saying that Chris and his Team are top notch professionals. While visiting the Buffalo Niagara area I was involved in a life altering accident. After hours of research I contacted and hired Chris. Chris and his Team kept me informed, were there when I needed them , and by far exceeded my expectations with a 7 figure settlement. If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing a personal injury attorney. Contact Chris. You will not regret it. One of the smartest decisions I have ever made was contacting The O'Brien Firm. RH Texas

    Living in New York there are rules, regulations and realities which, when filing a personal injury lawsuit, you should be aware of. Some of these realities limit awards and most are not designed for the benefit of the plaintiff (that would be you if you initiated a personal injury lawsuit). It is my personal belief that the system favors the defendants and the defending insurance companies. The defending insurance companies have the job of saying no. The defending insurance company will delay, attack you, file senseless reasons for your injuries, etc.; all of which is designed to get you to give up or take whatever is offered. It is up to you, the plaintiff, to prove that you are injured and have suffered an economic loss. So, it was with great trepidation I stepped into the personal injury lawsuit world. I called one of the two big tv advertising personal injury firms. I went through two attorneys and the case languished. Since the lawsuit was filed, I needed to find someone else to be my champion. Interestingly enough several of my trusted friends mentioned The O'Brien Firm. I am glad they did and proud to say that Chris O'Brien was my attorney.If you are considering hiring an attorney to be your champion, do not hire Chris O'Brien if you do not want the truth. If you are looking for an attorney who will always tell you what you want to hear, go somewhere else. Chris is an anomaly in the world of personal injury attorneys, especially large case volume firms – He’s honest and forthright. He may tell you things you do not want to hear and there are going to be things you do not want to believe … but listen. He knows what he is talking about. He will explain everything. We enter the realm of personal injury lawsuits with dreams of millions of dollars dancing in our heads. Well achieving that may or may not be possible. Chris will tell you what you can expect; and it is an honest assessment based on your case and his years of experience. Chris has a “take no prisoners” approach when working for you. Chris is always thinking how best to counter act whatever the other side files or tries. He will line up the necessary documentation to counter. He will assemble the necessary expert doctors or other experts to counter. Each step in implementing his strategy is well thought out and expertly executed. While you may not understand why he is doing what he is doing – trust it.As I said, I do not trust the system. I do trust Chris O’Brien. I trust his knowledge, experience and brilliant strategic mind. The best part of working with Chris is that he does not give up until he gets the full extent of what you can be awarded.

    In what seems like an unjust world, you would be hard pressed to find, or better yet, it would be impossible to find better representation on your road to justice than this firm offers. I am having a hard time figuring out how to put this into words. It isn’t that I can’t string sentences together; it’s that there is most likely a character limit on reviews and I could write a 50-page essay on how incredible my representation from this team of lawyers was for my case. I was injured nearly 4 years ago. A driver turned left in front of me while I had the right of way. I was on my 150cc scooter and was knocked from the bike. The insurance company claimed that their insured wasn’t at fault, offering measly settlement amounts. Chris and his team felt that these offers weren’t worthy of consideration and the case went to trial. I had respected John and Chris before seeing them on the battlefield, figuring they couldn’t rise any higher. I was sorely mistaken after seeing them work creatively and cohesively, catapulting us to a win with a jury verdict. It was strange to be asked to put a price on pain and suffering. It is something that I hope I never have to do again. However, Chris and John were there every single step of the way to recovery both physically and monetarily. They were thrown some wicked knuckleballs during pre-trial, jury selection and trial and handled them all with ease, exceeding expectations. I wish there were a review like this when I obsessively Google searched every aspect of personal injury, eventually finding Chris. You are going to be scared, maybe doubt your own injuries and feel pretty low at points. It was one of the saddest times in my life. I couldn’t have made it through without the support I received from Chris, John and Sid. I am indebted to this amazing group of people forever and wish them and their families the best. They kept telling me it was a pleasure to work with me and I am truly honored and humbled that this excellent group of people would think so highly of me. I truly see them as heroes. Thank you to everyone at the O’Brien firm, especially Patrice, who always welcomed me warmly and asked about my kids.

    Almost 6 years ago I was in an awful accident that changed everything. A family member referred me to Chris and for 5 years this man fought for me. He was compassionate, honest, and straightforward. He kept me informed and up to date with the smallest of details. Any time I had a question he was there with an answer. Because of his hard work and dedication my case finally settled this past August. My accident, surgeries, loss of work and the constant roller coaster ride of the lawsuit did a number on myself and my family, but because of Chris we have finally moved on. If you are looking for an attorney that has your best interests in mind then call Chris. He's absolutely amazing.

    I can honestly and genuinely say that my attorney, Chris O'Brien helped me navigate through a very emotional and painful time of my life. From the moment I met Chris and his team, I knew that he would help me figure out the "normal fault" process. The O'Brien team helped me with every piece of paperwork, took over all communication with the insurance companies and attended each and every medical appointment....right by my side. When my lawsuit started, the insurance company offered me $15,000 and Chris unequivocally declined that amount. Instead he went the extra mile and was successful in reaching the maximum amount the policy covered....which was much more than their original offer. The O'Brien Firm consists of an amazing staff....all around!

    Chris O'Brien recently helped settle my case from a car accident that occurred 4.5 years ago! Not only did he somehow win the maximum amount offered in the case, but he never gave up on helping me despite how frustratingly long this process took. He consulted with me first with every move we made, and truly cared about the healthcare I was receiving throughout this entire time. I was incredibly nervous about being in front of a jury, but Chris and Sidney's approach for easing my nerves came across very clear with their confidence, expertise, and humor when I needed it most. I realized that I was not nervous of the final outcome of the case because I was extremely confident in his skills and approach to win this case. Chris would dispute specific issues that proved that he genuinely cared about me as a person and not simply a client. That fact alone came to be one of the countless reasons that I am thankful to have worked with him. I consider Chris and Sidney to be great friends now because they proved to be very protective of me. His (and Sidney’s) personal investment in seeking compensation and responsibility for my injuries for over four years is incomparable to what any other law office could have ever provided. Again, Chris and Sidney are so talented that they were responsible for winning the full amount possible in my case. For that reason and many more, I will recommend them to many for years to come!

    I was hurt in a car crash. Chris met with me two days later and handled my case with his staff all the way to jury selection. He told me we had to go that far to make sure GEICO paid what they owed. The insurance company finally gave me the money I deserved after stalling and playing games. Chris and his paralegal Mary helped me through the hardest time in my life. I cannot thank them enough.

    Chris not only cared about my case, but also my well being throughout the process. He was always there to walk me through the steps we were taking and answer any questions I had. He has become a close friend, and is the only lawyer I would trust for any of my family members.
