Ryan O'Connor featured on Superlawyers Magazine
O’Connor Weber Partner Ryan O’Connor was featured on the cover of the 2023 edition of Superlawyers. Superlawyers recognizes top attorneys nationwide, across a variety of practice areas. Using peer nominations and individual professional achievement to select attorneys for its database, being featured on the cover of its annual magazine is a rare achievement. Only 5% of attorneys are selected to Super Lawyers, and fewer are featured on the magazine.
The magazine article highlights O’Connor Weber’s work in Watkins v. Ackley, documenting the inception of the project and describing the case's procedural history through the Oregon Supreme Court’s decision in December 2022. Ryan O’Connor and Aliza Kaplan also weigh in on problems that still plague modern Oregon laws. For O’Connor, the issues of reversing a conviction when a person establishes innocence, and reversing a conviction based on scientific advances remain.
