Paul Anthony O’Brien

  • Of Counsel


Greenville, Delaware






I am a Delaware native who grew up in Wilmington. After graduating from the University of Delaware, I worked on a number of public policy issues for Senator Tom Carper in his Washington, DC office while going to law school at the Catholic University of America. After I graduated, joined my father, Kevin O'Brien, in his law practice located in Greenville, Delaware. I focus on wills, trusts, and estate planning generally. I counsel clients on Medicaid planning. I also help clients through probate and estate administration.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking and sailing with my wife, Juliana, and our dog, Emma.
