Bruce A. Willey
David A. O''Brien

Dave O’Brien has been an attorney for over twenty years and is a member in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, law firm of Willey, O’Brien L.C.  His law practice consists primarily of representing plaintiffs who have been injured by the negligent and wrongful acts of others.  He has a reputation as a thorough and zealous advocate for his clients.  In an era when the number of jury trials is dwindling, Dave bucks the trend and routinely takes cases to jury trial in order to procure just and fair compensation for his injured clients.  Dave has handled numerous jury trials involving motor vehicle collisions, product liability cases, and wrongful death matters.   Workers’ compensation is another area of law in which Dave has significant experience.


Dave is a member of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Board of Governors, and serves as the PAC Committee Chair for that organization.  He has been very active in politics holding local, state and national political positions. Among other roles, Dave has served as Chair of the Woodbury County Democratic Central Committee, and Iowa Chair of the 1992 Clinton/Gore campaign.


Dave was born and raised in Sioux City, Iowa.  He graduated from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C., with a B.A. in Public Affairs and received his J.D. from The University of Iowa School of Law, with distinction.  From 1984 to 1993 Dave was engaged in the private practice of law in his hometown.  Dave worked for Secretary Robert B. Reich at the United States Department of Labor from 1994 to 1998, holding a variety of positions, including Chair of the Administrative Review Board.  


Dave is married to Stacey O’Brien. They have four children of their own, and have served as foster parents to “at risk” children in the past.
