More Than 50 Years

Helping Injured People Since 1993

Established in 1993, our Bridgeport law firm is led by founder and Martindale-Hubbell BV Distinguished peer review rated* (in both legal ability and ethical standard) attorney James L. O'Rourke. He along with lawyer Margaret C. DiCicco offers more than 50 years of combined legal experience, helping our clients tenaciously pursue personal injury claims. Additionally, attorney O'Rourke is also listed in Martindale-Hubbell's directory of distinguished attorneys.

While the experience and skills our lawyers have gained over the years handling major and minor injury cases have no doubt aided in our ability to achieve successful results for our clients, we believe the extra care and attention we offer have made a positive difference in their lives.

Our attorneys will go to work learning about your circumstances and helping you understand your rights in a personal injury case. We want you to focus on healing while we handle the legal matters associated with your accident. We will serve as a liaison between you and the insurance companies involved in your case.
