Robert O’Connor is a litigation assistant and legal practice assistant in the Northeast office. Before starting at Earthjustice, Robert worked maintaining trails deep in Idaho’s Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and then in youth programming with the Central Park Conservancy. With an unquenchable thirst for adventure, he thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (2016), the Continental Divide Trail (2017), and the Appalachian Trail (2019). Now settled in the contrasting wilds of the concrete jungle, Robert enjoys writing fiction and finds it hard not to pick up any and all litter.
