All Americans deserve a workplace free of discrimination and retaliation, and Katz Banks Kumin is committed to making that a reality.
I am honored to represent workers who speak out against injustice at their workplace.
Nicolas Enrique O'Connor, an Associate at Katz Banks Kumin, joined the firm in October 2020.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. O'Connor worked as a Summer Associate at Akin Gump in New York, where he worked on immigration, gender-based violence, and bankruptcy matters.
Mr. O'Connor received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 2020, where he served as a research assistant, conducting analysis on banking and mortgage regulation.
Prior to law school, Mr. O'Connor co-founded EduAmistad Ecuador, a nonprofit which provides comprehensive health and English education to at-risk youths in and around Guayaquil, Ecuador. While the organization is currently on hiatus due to the pandemic, its ultimate goal is to promote skills-based health education in collaboration with local governments and to develop a long-lasting cultural exchange between US university students and students in Ecuador about health and health education.
Mr. O'Connor also volunteers with the Washington Lawyers' Committee's Workers' Rights Clinic, and is a fluent Spanish speaker.
Mr. O'Connor is a member of the District of Columbia bar.
