Chicago, September 23, 2022 Megan O’Connor, a partner at Levin & Perconti has been named one of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin’s 40 Under Forty honorees. For the last 21 years, the legal publication has selected the most talented young attorneys practicing in Illinois for its prestigious list. O’Connor, a medical malpractice attorney, has helped obtain verdicts and settlements totally nearly $100-million in her still young legal career. Many were on behalf of abused children.
O’Connor has proven herself to be a tenacious and highly skilled legal advocate for those who are the most vulnerable. Her work has helped thousands of Illinois children by prompting significant reforms in the state’s foster care system. Earlier this year, O’Connor was named a partner at Levin & Perconti after joining the firm in 2021. Prior to that, O’Connor worked for several Chicago civil rights and personal injury law firms where her work included representing children in the foster care system as well as other medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
“I am so honored and proud to be a 40 Under Forty honoree,” said Megan O’Connor. “I love what I do, especially when I can make a positive impact in the lives of children. It is very rewarding.”
“Megan has an outstanding record of obtaining justice for those she represents. She is a gifted young attorney,” said Steve Levin, co-founding partner of Levin & Perconti. “Her success is fueled not just by her considerable legal skills and strong work ethic but also by the great empathy she feels for victims. That is what drives her.”
O’Connor is a member of the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois and sits on the organization’s Judicial Evaluation Committee. She is a member of the American Association for Justice and a member of the Women’s Caucus of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
