      Francis L. O’Reilly Esq. founded the law firm of O’Reilly and Shaw in 1997.  He treats everyone with respect and realizes that anyone can make mistakes that sometimes results in criminal prosecution.  Being a highly experienced trial lawyer in both Federal and State courts, his knowledge is indispensable to individuals facing criminal prosecutions.  Frank has a reputation for negotiating significantly reduced charges or having the charges dismissed altogether.  He scrutinizes every detail of a case and intensely challenges the prosecutor's version of the alleged facts.  Additionally, Frank has extensive experience going to trial in serious criminal matters in both Federal and State Criminal courts. This trial experience is essential to the success of his clients, regardless of whether or not the client actually proceeds to trial. Frank's successful trial experience puts the prosecutors on notice that they are in for a tough opponent who is not afraid to fight for his clients.

     Attorney O’Reilly has gained media attention in high profile cases.  He has been quoted in the New York Times, Stamford Advocate, Hartford Courant and the Connecticut Post. Frank provides aggressive representation throughout the case and his competitive and forceful court room manner has led to successful results, including acquittals, directed verdicts by the court, and substantially reduced charges by both Federal and State prosecutors. Frank also feels that everyone deserves a second chance and will vigorously advocate for the best possible result for his clients.   

     O'Reilly and Shaw is a firm that focuses on the client.  A client of O'Reilly and Shaw does not feel “lost in the shuffle” of a large, impersonal firm.  Frank's top priority is to be there for you when you or your family needs a lawyer with extensive experience.  Anyone who has been through the legal system, whether it was for a divorce or a serious criminal charge, will tell you that nothing is more important than having an experienced trial attorney on your side.

    Frank went to Quinnipiac Law School where he was a member of the Law Review and he graduated with honors.  Before attending law school he worked on Wall Street for a major investment bank. Frank was raised with a knowledge and respect for the law and he brings a personal compassion to each and every case.
