Sean M. Cleary - Miami Personal Injury Lawyer

I opened my law firm in 2005 and since then I have been helping Miami residents receive fair compensation for serious injuries sustained in various types of accidents.

Because the law is not just about trials and courts but mainly about people and their sufferings, we are constantly interested in the moral and ethical aspects of each case we have to deal with.

Being people oriented has always been the foundation of our law office, and my team of assistants was trained to handle each case with integrity, honesty and a high level of compassion.
