    Attorney Profile

    An attorney at O’Connor Weber LLC, Ryan T. O’Connor represents clients in Oregon in both federal and state court. His practice is focused on criminal defense court matters, including state administrative matters and post-conviction challenges to a criminal conviction. A former employee of the Office of Public Defense Services’ Appellate Division, he spent years representing indigent clients as they challenged convictions through appeal and requested their parole board decisions be under judicial review.

    Admitted to practice in the state of Oregon, Mr. O’Connor graduated cum laude from the University of Portland with a Bachelor of Arts in political science with a German minor. He then attended Notre Dame Law School, where he graduated cum laude with his Juris Doctor. During his second year of studying law, he moved to London to continue his studies, and he has traveled around the world and lived in places such as Mexico, Spain, Chile and Germany.

    For two years, Mr. O’Connor served as a board member of the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He regularly writes and publishes content for the organization and speaks at law conferences throughout the state on appellate issues related to criminal cases.

    Mr. O’Connor has a long history of protecting clients from the media and other adverse consequences that come from a conviction. His appeals have led to new agency hearings, new trials, reductions of the sentence of the convicted and reversals of criminal convictions. These include cases involving the death penalty, eyewitness identification, violation of a client’s constitutional rights by a police officer and reckless endangerment.
