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 to Sean Cleary.
