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.

Richard S. - Google Review

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.
