Following her clerkship, Attorney O’Connell served as an associate at the Boston law firm of Carney & Bassil. There, she specialized in criminal defense and family law, with a particular concentration in high-conflict divorce and child custody cases.  After leaving Carney & Bassil, Kathleen worked as a public defender for the Committee for Public Counsel Services where she spent every day in court, fighting to protect her clients’ rights.
