I couldn't be happier with the legal representation and work Sean gave to the organization I represent. He was a thoughtful, professional partner in an extremely difficult situation that at times seemed hopeless but reached a successful end with all parties agreeable with the outcome. A very difficult navigation that Sean was able to help lead us through. We are thankful for his help, and I highly recommend Sean when looking for legal services.

Seriously this man and his team are the best in Miami! I was lucky enough to find Sean and have him represent me after an auto accident that left me injured and with many bills, i couldn't really pay. He is the most honest lawyer I have ever met and truly cares about the people he and his office have helped. They argued with my insurance company and my medical insurance. They are really good at what they do and they fight for you like no one would!

I had an accident in my 2014 Toyota that resulted in me being in the hospital for 3 months, severely injured. The car has always been serviced at the dealership. Sean and his team investigated for me and determined that the cause of the accident was actually a defective part in the braking process. Within a week he had started the process and my case settled so rapidly and they recovered more than I hoped for. Thank you for helping me! The law firm was very effective, professional and extremely helpful.

My wife and I were referred to Sean Cleary by another Attorney. He was very highly recommended and, I must say, very deservedly so. Sean is very diligent in his work; his preparation is phenomenal and his presentations are something to behold. He is very accessible if you have any questions. He always takes the time to fully explain in language you can understand. We highly recommend anyone needing help...talk to Sean Cleary.
