Thomas H. O'Brien

As a Special Assistant Attorney General, I tried bail hearings and probation/bail violation hearings in Rhode Island District Courts. I also tried countless numbers of DUI and Breathalyzer refusal matters before moving on to Superior Court jury trials. My felony trial experience includes over 30 jury trials with a history of success in capital cases to include murder, sexual assault, burglary, robbery and narcotics delivery cases. I was one of few prosecutors to successfully prosecute multiple life without parole murder cases. In my 16 years in the criminal justice system, I handled nearly every felony chargeable under Rhode Island Law in courtrooms throughout the State of Rhode Island. I decided to open my own law practice in order to use my skills to help Rhode Island citizens with the legal help they need during the most difficult times.
