It is with heavy hearts that the entire firm of Gravel & Shea joins with the O’Neill family, the Vermont legal community, and the greater Burlington area to mourn the loss of Jerome F. O’Neill, who passed away this Sunday, December 3.

“Jerry was a deeply committed American, a lion in the legal field, and the loveliest of family men,” says Heather Hammond, Co-Managing Partner. “We were lucky enough to call him one of our own at the end of a long and celebrated career. He always represented his clients with integrity and with compassion and was a mentor to many.”
