Christy O’Connor, Legal Assistant to Greg Linehan
Christy O’Connor was born in Miami, Florida and raised here, in Sarasota. She graduated from Sarasota High School and attended Manatee Community College. In 1990, she began working in the insurance field, at an insurance company in downtown Sarasota. She transferred to a small insurance agency in St. Petersburg in 2001 and worked there for several years before becoming a stay at home mom to her two small children.
In 2009, Christy was hired as our Receptionist. She quickly learned the ins and outs of the personal injury world and became an indispensable part of our office. In 2013, when the time came for Mr. Linehan to hire a second Legal Assistant, Christy easily transitioned into that position. She handles all of Mr. Linehan’s pre-suit personal injury files for clients with last names beginning with H-Z. Her days are typically spent handling client calls, requesting medical records, building client files, communicating with insurance companies, and writing demand letters.
Christy has been married to her husband, Chris, for over 23 years. They have two children, Christopher and Amanda, both of which graduated from Booker High School in the last couple of years. Christy enjoys spending her weekends on the boat fishing with Chris, visiting her daughter at UCF, or relaxing by the pool with a good book. At the end of every July, you can find the O’Connor family in the Keys gathering as many lobster as they can.
