Details

Joe O’Hara spent the first part of his legal career mastering the challenge of trial work, handling everything from complex commercial disputes to catastrophic personal injury cases to unconstitutional conditions in a now closed jail. In 2018, Joe launched the next phase of his career, again focusing his skills as a trial lawyer and a complex litigation manager on a new set of goals. His work at RSHC emphasizes the representation of clients who have been wrongfully convicted and who seek justice in the criminal and civil courts. Joe both leads and advises teams seeking to free those who have been wrongfully incarcerated and to compensate them for devastating violations of their constitutional rights.
