Bridget R. O’HaraAssociate

Education: J.D., University of California Hastings College of the Law, 2016, cum laude, CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Intellectual Property and International Trade Law and Policy; B.A. Santa Clara University, 2012.

Reason I joined Greenfield: The people.  Everyone loves what they do.  It makes work feel much less like work.

How I got into law: Law is in the family.  My grandfather was an attorney, my parents are attorneys, and a handful of my aunts and uncles are attorneys.  Some say I had no choice.

Proudest achievement: Continuing the family tradition of graduating from Santa Clara University – go Broncos.

How winning a case makes me feel: Elated.  Winning for our clients is what it’s all about.  However, I hate to lose even more than I love to win.

What prepared me best for my career: Playing team sports competitively my whole life.  I learned what it takes to win, how to win and how to get right back up after losing.  As it turns out, those lessons translate almost seamlessly to litigation.
