In this position, he will oversee the company's financial operations, administration and human resources.
O'Connell brings more than 30 years of experience in finance, strategic planning and financial operations. Most recently, he served as chief financial officer and vice president of finance and administration for Aircraft Shopper Online, an Internet publisher of pre-owned aircraft in Corte Madera, Calif. During his tenure, Jerry directed all aspects of financial operations, corporate governance, human resources and internal systems development.

One Legal offers court filing, service of process and document retrieval (court research) throughout California, as well as eFiling and eService in Texas. The company will be expanding its services this year in partnership with CT, and will be the first to offer nationwide court filing and document retrieval services. In December, 2007, One Legal formed a strategic partnership with CT--the market leader for corporate compliance and governance, UCC, matter management, e-billing, litigation support, electronic discovery and trademark research solutions--to provide the infrastructure and financial resources to support this expansion. CT, a Wolters Kluwer business, is based in New York City.
