It’s been 15 years since we first opened our doors at The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare. Over the years, we’ve earned numerous awards and accolades for our work in injury law, but those awards could never measure up to the experiences I’ve shared with my clients and my staff.
As I look back on the last 15 years, here are some reflections I’d like to share with you.
I’ve learned a lot in the last 15 years, but most importantly, I’ve learned to trust God first and lean not on my own understanding. I have also learned not to sweat the small stuff and to always strive to improve and honestly self-evaluate. It’s also helpful for me to remember that while it may be the zillionth time I’ve handled a case, for each individual client, it is likely the first and last time they will ever be in this position. For that reason, it is so important to take care of people and always do the right thing, even when it is costly.
I sincerely enjoy the opportunity to help people through a difficult period in their lives. Each client I’ve worked with through the years stands out in my memory for one reason or another, but those with whom I have walked through tragedy stick most in my memory. I once had the difficult task of helping a family who lost a child due to medical negligence. This was the toughest thing I’ve ever dealt with or been a part of and something I will never forget. Another case that impacted me tremendously was where a young woman with three young children lost her husband and the father of her children suddenly due to a negligent construction company truck driver. I spent nearly two years walking through that devastation with them.
With 15 years under my belt, the one piece of advice I’d give my younger self is to stop and smell the roses. Appreciate every moment. Count your blessings. Life as a husband, father, attorney and active member of my community is often very hectic, but it is so important to take a step back and soak it all in every now and then. It gives you a new perspective.
These 15 years would not be complete without my wife and three children. They are my biggest inspiration and the reason I get up every day and do what I do. I love spending time with my family and look forward to watching my children grow up and become Godly, productive teenagers and adults.
Fifteen years may seem like a long time, but we are just getting started! Over the coming years, we look forward to continuing to be the go-to law firm in North Texas for injury victims and families who have lost loved ones seeking honest, ethical, tenacious representation. We plan to continue to expand our services to meet our ever-growing client base’s needs, and to serve our community through giving back, pro bono work and charitable giving.
Thank you for being a part of our first 15 years. We look forward to many more years!
