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.
Sean represented my wife and I and our three-year-old daughter in a case involving medical malpractice after she was born at a Miami hospital. The case was settled confidentially, providing for the future care and treatment of our daughter, and we were very satisfied with the result.
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.
Sean represented my family after my wife died from an infection following surgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach. Sean was not just an aggressive litigator but also a trusted advisor whose wisdom and experience with the medical malpractice system helped us achieve a phenomenal result that honored the memory of my deceased wife and assured the financial future for my children. I very much doubt that any other lawyer in the community would have worked so hard, spent so much time, and fought so many battles on our behalf. For complex medical malpractice cases that require serious brainpower and technical know-how, there is no better lawyer in Florida than Sean Cleary.

We would recommend him without hesitation.

For most types of spine surgery, both neurosurgeons and specially trained orthopedic surgeons may be considered. Annually in Florida, around 3.4% of the practicing neurosurgeons face malpractice claims. Also, around 4% of the practicing orthopedic surgeons are being sued for malpractice annually. The infection rate for open back surgery is 19% and for minimally invasive surgery is 0,49%. Around 70% of the cases in Florida involve improperly performed back surgical procedures. The second highest reason for malpractice claims in Florida (28% of the cases) is the failure to properly diagnose the condition following unnecessary back surgery.
