For the seventh year in a row, Michael J. O’Connor, founder of Michael J. O’Connor & Associates, was selected and named as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer in the field of workers’ compensation law as published in the June 2010 edition of Philadelphia Magazine as well as the recent edition of Super Lawyers magazine.
In addition to Mr. O’Connor, Attorney Paul J. Duffalo was named to the list this year.
Attorneys named Super Lawyers are considered to be the top five percent of attorneys in each state, as chosen by their peers and through the independent research of Law & Politics. O’Connor was named a Super Lawyer in 2004 and each year following, making this his seventh year in a row to top the list of workers’ compensation attorneys in Pennsylvania. This is Duffalo’s third year to make the list.
To be named a Super Lawyer, an attorney must first go through a rigorous three-step process that begins with a nomination by his/her peers. The nominations occur on ballots that go out to all lawyers throughout the state who have been in practice for at least five years. These nominations are to be based on personal observation rather than solely on reputation.
O’Connor’s seventh consecutive Super Lawyer designation makes evident his continued determination to uphold an outstanding level of legal representation. Duffalo has been recognized for his success and hard work for the third year in a row, and will undoubtedly continue to be named to the list in the coming years. His dedication to injured workers is recognized amongst his peers and demonstrated in his professional achievements.
