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.

Fractured Bones on Board Cruise Ship

I suffered a slip and fall while on a cruise which required surgery for a compound fracture of my femur. Mr. Cleary worked tirelessly to obtain compensation in my case, as events like mine are difficult to litigate sometimes. He is a fantastic advisor and I recommend him to anybody in need of a lawyer without hesitation.
