Daniel J. O’Connor
I was raised in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, which is a small town about 25 miles northwest of Chicago. Of course, it was a lot smaller in the 1960s and 70s. I was one of 10 children, and I grew up playing almost every type of team sport: football, basketball, hockey and baseball. In 1978, shortly before I graduated college, Motorola transferred my father to Phoenix. It was my first visit to Arizona, and I fell in love with its kind people, its amazing culture, and its beautiful desert. Now with two busy children of my own, I am not sure how my parents managed with ten of us! My family spends leisure time boating, hiking, cheering for the Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Suns, and Coyotes, or just enjoying the Sonoran Desert life. I am similarly blessed in my professional life. It may sound corny, but I am honored to be in business with some of the kindest people I have ever met in my life. Each person is dedicated to carrying out our combined mission to serving our clients’ needs, while at the same time supporting each other in our daily lives. Our law firm is an amazing place, and I am fortunate to be a part of it.
