Charles O’Shea spent the last three decades in elected and appointed government positions. Now, the attorney brings his diverse experience to the law firm of Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein, where he was named of counsel.
After serving in the New York State Assembly from 1987 to 1997, O’Shea spent five years as chairman of the Nassau Board of Assessors. He then moved on to the New York State Department of Transportation, where he spent a dozen years and served as director of government relations for the New York City region.
O’Shea, who will split his time between Meyer Suozzi’s Garden City and Albany offices, joined the government relations practice. He will represent both public- and private- sector clients in legislative procurement and regulatory matters.
With his government experience, the attorney brings a unique perspective to the firm.
“The personal relationships I forged…will be invaluable in assisting Meyer Suozzi’s clients,” O’Shea said. “Both roles give me the opportunity to use my education, experience and personal relationships to provide a service. In government, I provided a professional service to the general population. Here, at Meyer Suozzi, I provide that service to individuals and businesses. Both are very rewarding.”
O’Shea is a graduate of the Fordham University School of Law.
