Eileen M. O’Brien


Eileen has always had a passion for the law. Her father and uncle maintained their own law firm that she grew up around in Buffalo, NY. After graduating from law school, she practiced with them—her first and best mentors.

Prior to joining the Firm as a Partner in June 2024, Eileen practiced for 25 years having tried cases in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and New York. She specializes in the areas of personal injury and commercial litigation. In personal injury, she represents individuals who have been seriously injured, and their surviving family members. She has a proven track record of achieving strong results even in the toughest of cases. Early in her career, she litigated personal injury matters from the defense perspective developing an insider’s view of how cases are assessed by insurance companies which she now uses to her clients’ advantage. Eileen’s commercial litigation practice includes representing both individuals and businesses in litigation involving contract disputes, construction defects, and a range of real estate matters in mediation, arbitration, and at trial.

Regardless of the subject matter, Eileen believes that the cornerstone of any relationship is strong communication. She takes the time to get to know each client and their goals. She listens, answers their questions, and explains the process so that no client is ever surprised. No matter the goal, Eileen provides a range of options, and charts a path with her client to achieve them. She recognizes that it is a privilege to serve in a position of trust with her clients, and she never stops working to earn that trust.

Eileen is licensed in the federal and state courts of Maryland, New York and the District of Columbia where she resides with her family.
