Our Legal Process

What our clients say about their cases

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.
