EAST ALTON — Sivia Law has hired St. Louis native Jill O’Connell as chief operations officer.

“I saw our firm continuing to violate our core value of customer focus with the amount of management responsibilities I had taken on,” said Todd Sivia. “I needed someone to take over the management role for the benefit of our friends, which are our clients.”

O’Connell has 19 years of comprehensive experience within the legal sector. She formerly managed a firm of 80 people and will become Sivia Law’s 20th full-time employee. She is currently president of the Association of Legal Administrators-Gateway Chapter
and recently served on the Legal Update Planning Committee for the Society for Human Resource Management-STL.

Sivia said O’Connell’s personality is a perfect fit for the position; she is a goal-oriented, personable professional committed to improving talent acquisition and increasing organizational effectiveness.

“We are very excited to add Jill to our team and I am confident that this role being filled will take our firm to the next level in 2022,” he said. “This will allow me to return to being able to continue to cast the vision of the firm and work as a practicing attorney.”
