    STRATFORD, CT, February 02, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- James Louis O'Rourke has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

In pursuit of his passion for helping others, Mr. O'Rourke discovered his aptitude for law and turned it into a flourishing career. He started his journey in the U.S. Navy in 1976, but left in 1979 due to an injury. Looking for an alternate path, he attended the University of Bridgeport, where he excelled at obtaining necessary educational veterans benefits. It was suggested that he use those skills to help others in similar situations and, coming from a family of lawyers, it seemed a natural fit. After earning a Bachelor of Science and a JD from the University of Bridgeport, Mr. O'Rourke entered private practice in 1988, and has been there ever since. His wife, Margaret, an attorney, has worked in the firm since 1995. He primarily deals with personal injury, workers' compensation, automobile accidents, and premises liability in his role.

Licensed to practice law through the State of Connecticut as well as the U.S. District Court and the U.S. Supreme Court, Mr. O'Rourke affiliates himself with the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the American Bar Association, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, and the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association. Throughout his career, he has earned many awards for his work, including being named to the Directory of Distinguished Attorneys through the Martindale-Hubbell Directory. He has also been included in 11 volumes of Who's Who in American Law, 18 volumes of Who's Who in America, and six volumes of Who's Who in Finance and Business. Looking forward, Mr. O'Rourke intends to experience the continued growth and success of his career.
