About Us

The O'Hara Law Firm has focused on insurance defense litigation for more than twenty years. Based out of Jacksonville, Florida, our firm handles all kinds of insurance defense and liability cases throughout Florida and Georgia in county, state and federal court. In addition to defending against lawsuits, we prosecute lawsuits for declaratory judgment on coverage, provide a variety of pre-suit services, and handle appeals of orders and judgments.

We draw upon years and years of experience to provide our clients with effective and cost-efficient representation. Our attorneys handle various defense matters from origination through settlement negotiations, litigation, trial and appeal. We try many cases to jury verdict, and we have the knowledge, tools, and experience to do it well.

Included among our team are an AV-rated attorney, an attorney licensed to practice in both Florida and Georgia, and attorneys well-versed in appellate work and coverage issues. Our firm is a member of the prestigious Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM).

Our depth of experience handling insurance defense matters combined with state-of-the-art technology, gives us the ability to help our insurance clients meet the demands of handling a high volume of claims in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. In addition, our medium size allows us to provide a higher level of personal service and attention, and enables us to adapt more quickly to client needs and litigation changes. We can also accommodate alternate billing options such as flat rate or flexible fee arrangements.
