As an associate attorney at Langdon & Emison, Connor's litigation practice is focused solely on representing clients nationwide who have suffered disastrous and even fatal injuries as a result of defective products, motor vehicle collisions and wrongful actions leading to avoidable and tragic deaths. 

He utilizes nuanced research and concise writing in drafting petitions, complaints, discovery, and motions to the Court. The firm also employs Connor's aptitude for advocacy during depositions, strategizing for trial and other phases throughout the course of litigation involving defective vehicles and consumer products, trucking collisions, premises liability and other instances of negligence.

Connor joined Langdon & Emison in 2018 after almost two years of practicing law with a civil defense firm in Jefferson City, Mo. While there, he defended clients in litigation stemming from allegations of negligence, municipal tort liability, breaches of insurance and construction contracts, and violations of the Uniform Condominium Act. Connor now applies his experience and understanding of defense tactics and strategies to work on behalf of clients and their families who are faced with taking on some of the world’s largest corporations and insurance companies. 

Connor is a licensed member of the Missouri Bar and is admitted to practice in the Courts of Appeals for the Eastern and Western districts of Missouri. In 2016, he earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law where he made the Dean's List every semester and also served as associate managing editor of the Journal of Environmental and Sustainability Law.   

Throughout law school, Connor gained a legion of legal experience by completing numerous clerkships and internships while also maintaining a consistent commitment to public service. He clerked for Langdon & Emison in 2015, applying his research and writing abilities to trucking collision cases, electrocution cases, railroad crossing cases and a multi-district litigation (MDL) case involving defective medical implant devices. Before clerking here, Connor clerked for Harper, Evans, Wade & Netermeyer in Columbia, Mo., where he worked on personal injury and criminal defense cases. Prior to that, he interned with the Audrain County (Mo.) Prosecuting Attorney and in New Orleans with AidsLaw Louisiana, where he assisted clients still weathering the hardships of Hurricane Katrina. Connor also interned for two years at the Missouri Public Service Commission – Staff Counsel's Office, where he handled matters of administrative compliance and assisted in representing the technical staff of engineers and analysts in front of the Commission. 

Despite the time constraints that accompanied completing those clerkships and internships during law school, Connor viewed his commitment to giving back via public service as mandatory. As a result, he was awarded a Pro Bono Certificate from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law for the time he volunteered to the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program and to AidsLaw Louisiana. Last, but not least, Connor is honored to have been able to serve this nation's veterans by participating in the Veterans' Law Clinic during his last semester of law school, where he helped disabled Veterans recover the disability benefits they earned in the service of their country by appealing adverse decisions made by the Board of Veterans' Appeals. The apex of this rewarding experience occurred when Connor authored an Appeal Brief that was submitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans' Claims and helped the clinic director prepare for the oral argument by orally arguing the brief to an audience of professors and classmates during Moot Court.
