Michael J. O'Connor, Esq. focuses his practice in the administration and litigation of estate, trust, and guardianship matters, as well as estate planning. He is licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and holds a Juris doctorate from University of Florida and a Bachelor's in Philosophy degree from the University of Florida.

Michael’s experience in representing clients with varied interests enables him to consider the role of each party in your administration or litigation scenario before working with you to decide the best course of action. This interactive approach ensures that you can prevent issues and liability where you find yourself in charge as a fiduciary. His experience also allows for best tactical decisions which aids in protecting client’s rights and assisting them in reaching their goals.

His experience with estates and trusts litigation also provides a learned background for planning against issues before they arise, or updating estate plans to remediate any issues that may exist. He also handles other transactional matters (which are sometimes attendant to estate planning and administration), such as real estate transactions, incorporation and transfer of small businesses, and a variety of other services so that your assets are titled congruently with your estate plan.

At home, Michael enjoys spending time in his garden. Gardening helps Michael approach life with a focus on growth and nourishment, while grappling with the natural cycle of life. This perspective is reflected in his practice, as he helps you plant seeds for the future and preserve the fruits of your life.
