The law firm was founded by Attorneys Kathleen E. O'Connor and Brenda M. Rivard.  Attorney O'Connor retired from the practice of law in December of 2017.  In December of 2023, Attorney Rivard changed the name of the firm to Attorney Brenda M. Rivard, P.C.

At Attorney Brenda M. Rivard, P.C., we know that seeking the advice of any attorney for any type of legal matter can be intimidating.  Both the attorney and the client need to feel comfortable with the relationship.  For most types of legal matters, Attorney Rivard will have an initial one-hour consultation with you to discuss your particular situation, answer your questions, give you advice on the matter and determine if any further services are needed.

Attorney Rivard enjoys giving presentations on various legal issues as a community service.  She was the former host of a radio show on Emmanuel Radio until the sale of the station, called "Life's Transitions." Other organizations that Attorney Rivard has presented for include the Worcester Senior Center, Elder Services of Worcester Area, Inc., teacher organizations, The Colony Retirement Homes, an annual five-week course for WISE (Worcester Institute for Senior Education) at Assumption College, The Red Hat Society, financial planners and churches.  Please call or email us should you want to arrange a presentation for your organization or church.

Attorney Rivard has over 24 years of experience in this community and she can refer you to other professionals such as accountants, insurance brokers, care facilities, community agencies and the like.  We want you to have the best possible resources available to assist you.
