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.

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.
