Based in Brandon, FL, Brandon Law Offices is owned and operated by licensed Registered Nurse and attorney, Tanya P. O’Connor. Admitted to the Florida Bar in 1995, Attorney O’Connor holds 18 years of experience. Her mission is to provide a personal touch to every case she accepts. Her desire to empathize and provide personalized attention to her clients comes from her years of experience as a Registered Nurse. Attorney O’Connor explains the reason for her desire to give each client such personalized service: “With the exception of those seeking estate planning services, most clients I consult with are dealing with some form of crisis. And, under those circumstances, in addition to requiring the advice and counsel of a skilled attorney, clients also need to know that their attorney can make ‘human’ contact and empathize, being fully aware of how the proceeding have impacted their lives and families.”
Attorney O’Connor’s professional career began in 1989, upon earning a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing Science from the Decker School of Nursing at the State University of New York at Binghamton. Following admission to the New York State Board of Nursing, Ms. O’Connor accepted a position as Staff RN at Tisch Medical Center in New York, New York (formerly known as NYU Hospital). She was later recruited by HCA Bayonet Point Medical Center, which prompted her relocation to Florida. Ms. O’Connor worked as a Progressive Care Unit RN, specializing in telemetry and post-operative care and rehabilitation of open heart surgery patients. Ms. O’Connor practiced as a PCU RN in acute care settings for 10 years and transitioned to community health nursing as a Field RN in 1998. Her passion for providing one-on-one patient care prompted Ms. O’Connor to continue working as a clinical RN throughout law school and well after her admission to the Bar.
