About Attorney Joseph O'Connell

Img Prior to joining the practice, Mr. O'Connell worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies and served as a reserve officer in the U.S. Army for 30 years. During his time in the army, Mr. O'Connell was called to active duty twice to serve as a judge advocate specializing in international law in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 1990/1, and then again as a Staff Judge Advocate in Heidelberg, Germany, in 1996 in connection with the cessation of fighting in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

After retiring from the military, Mr. O'Connell was an adjunct faculty member of the Defense Institute of International Legal Studies (DIILS), Newport, Rhode Island. His time spent in the reserves and as a member of DIILS afforded Mr. O'Connell the opportunity to travel throughout the world, gaining insight into various countries' legal and cultural systems.
