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.

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. And Sean is also a "good guy" who is a pleasure to spend time with, respected by judges and adversaries alike, does not lose his cool, and represents the best interests of his clients above all else. For complex medical malpractice cases that require serious brainpower and technical know-how, there is no better lawyer in Florida than Sean Cleary.

Miami Medical Malpractice

Did Your Doctor Fail to Diagnose Your Stroke or Heart Attack? We have handled and continue to represent medical malpractice claims for stroke and heart attack victims. Despite having symptoms and signs of stroke or heart attack, our clients were discharged too soon from hospitals, only to suffer strokes or heart attacks a short time after that. Among other injuries, our clients have sustained brain damage and paralysis. Even though most of the medical professionals try to do their best in treating their patients, sometimes errors occur. Negligence in the doctor-patient relationship is the primary cause of errors, and it involves failure to meet or respect the appropriate standard of care, which results in severe or permanent injury caused to the patient.
