Michael B.- Google Review

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.

Sean Cleary represented my husband and I in a very difficult medical malpractice case. Mr. Cleary was always was courteous, diligent and professional. He was straightforward and upfront about the challenges we faced but never relented in his pursuit of justice on our behalf, up through and beyond a contentious 6-day jury trial. We would recommend him without hesitation.
