It is with great respect, admiration, and pride that I take the time to write this review for Attorney, Sean P. Sheppard. I am a real estate broker who deals mainly in “high end” real estate, mostly commercial, and well in excess of a million dollars. Sean has handled at least 30 transactions over 15 years. He has assisted clients with complex title issues, advising on financial and future business planning, establishing many corporations for my clients, wills/trusts, closings, some civil litigation. I have recommended his services to many of my clients or associates that I come in contact with. He responds to phone calls and emails with quick response, his level of intelligence, legal knowledge, written response and filings are extremely impressive. His character and demeanor is also commendable. He is generous with his time and fair in his billing and treats each and every client with a high level of respect and with a fierce fight and determination to do the best job for each and every client. I was introduced to Sean when he was not long out of law school and have grown fond of him as a person and extreme respect for him as an attorney. Sean never wavers in his oath as an attorney and gives his “all” with high levels of professionalism, respect, quiet but fierce and strong drive, and with compassion that cannot be taught but only come from within.
In a recent transaction, the process hit some “bumps and curves” in the road which required a lot of communication via email, phone, and preparation of numerous documents. Sean was always quick to respond and to keep this process moving forward in a timely professional manner that stayed within guidelines outlined in the request of his client. I may also note that you will not only get responses and communication from Sean during a “9-5” business day. On many occasions, his email could be received at 6am or 11pm and often on a weekend. He is a diligent man with excellent work ethics, who has a soft approach, excellent guidance backed with enormous knowledge, while meeting every need of his client. He spoke in a soft voice and fully explained each and every step; much like he had done to get to that point. I know I have ALWAYS been pleased with Sean’s work and have had nothing but positive reviews from clients or associates that I have referred to him.
Sean Sheppard is a “class act” and an attorney that could be highly recommended to handle ANY type of situation because he is qualified in many areas of law.

I am not one to write comments or messages at websites, but when I found out there were different webpages to review your doctor or lawyer, I knew I had to take the time to write something about my attorney, Sean Sheppard.
You see, I had a personal injury case and met with 3 other attorney's before meeting Sean. All three meetings turned into grave disappointment as one wouldn't take the case and the other two just wanted so much money and actually had attitudes that did not give me any confidence in how they would handle my case. But then I was referred to Sean Sheppard. When I met with him I was immediately encouraged and felt confident he would do a good job and would treat me right. He turned out to be the best lawyer that I could ever have hired!
We were up against a huge company with a big legal department, and they were not about to admit any wrongdoing. Sean fought so hard for me and would not quit until he won me a hearty and fair settlement. All during the long case, Sean was always in close contact and always returned all my telephone calls and emails promptly.
Since that case I've hired Sean for some other difficult and tedious family and business matters, and again I feel fully satisfied in all the work he has done for me. Sean Sheppard is one smart, energetic, diligent attorney with incredible research skills and above all---he has a great compassion for his clients. He will FIGHT for you like you were one of his own family and bring you the best results possible in your case. You won't find a more passionate and skilled attorney than Sean Sheppard.

Over the years I've had to hire a lawyer for various situations. Although I was generally pleased with my dealings with those attorneys, Sean Sheppard is the first attorney who I actually felt I could trust completely and he treated me with the utmost respect. He reached a most favorable outcome in my lawsuit and I always felt he cared about me as a person and was dedicated to reaching a positive result in my case. He was very prompt in his returning my calls and emails and I felt he was incrediblly fair in the fees he charged. Sean proved to be a superior attorney with attention to detail. He was most polite and considrate in how he handled himself in court, but proved to be a very formidable opponent in fighting for my rights. Without any hesitation, I would strongly agree Sean Sheppard is an outstanding lawyer and you will be most pleased if you hire him to represent you.

Sean Sheppard represented my elderly Mom in a civil litigation. In addition to reaching a most successful outcome for my mother, I found Sean to be a very understanding and compassionate attorney in how he communicated with my Mom in a very difficult legal process. My Mom appreciated his kindness and attentiveness thru all phases of the litigation. The outcome Sean reached in trial was outstanding for my Mom. Thanks Sean!!

I hired Sean Sheppard to help me with a divorce matter. I interviewed other attorney's and decided on Sean. Initially I made that decision because he didn't gouge me with an outrageous retainer fee. But I quickly learned that he was extremely diligent, inteligent, and pleasantly agressive in his covering my case. He sprang into action and got me thru the divorce in a short period of time and was able to protect all of my assets from a very dishonest and manipulative spouce. Maybe I initially was thinking about money when I hired him, but after going thru this divorce with him representing me I am so glad I ended up hiring Sean over some of those other stuffed shirts. I'd advise anybody looking for a divorce attorney to hire Sean. He is worth every penny of what he charged me and a heck of a decent human being.

I could not have gotten through a very nasty and cut throat partnership dispute without the compassion, skill and perseverance of Sean Sheppard. All of my calls and questions were answered personally and he worked with us to keep our legal bills reasonable. Sean is very professional and produced excellent results for my business and my family while being empathtetic and caring. If you are looking for a lawyer who will protect your rights and go the extra mile, then you will never regret hiring Sean Sheppard

In my fight against a Fortune 500 company, Sean Sheppard earned my full trust and gratitude as he represented me in a highly complex and gruelling battle against a huge corporation with never ending resources. Sean was a fierce advocate in handling my case and was always fair and reasonable with everyone concerned. He is an outstanding and caring attorney and person. . . a professional, knowledgeable, and honest attorney. He was completely thorough and well prepared. His expertise, dedication, honesty, fortitude, and compassion are only a few of the reasons that I highly recommend Sean Sheppard's firm

Sean provided guidance, patience, understanding, support and fortitude in the legal services needed to help protect me in divorce proceedings thrust upon me by my wife after 26 years of marriage. Such a hurtful, damaging and dismaying experience would have been magnitudes worse if not for his care, consideration and responsiveness.

Very Disappointed in the service that was offered to me. I feel that I paid much more than the service that was rendered. My advice is to check with former clients before you pay too much.

As I started my divorce process,I interviewed attorneys from Jacksonville,,Gainesville,Palatka , Daytona and St Augustine. While I was meeting,talking to Sean Sheppard, I knew he was the best. Upon hiring him, he immediately got the ball rolling- in the right direction. Throughout the process he was proficient,competent,confident and well prepared. He advised me,comforted me and kept me informed. We communicated for the most part via email. He was efficient and ultimate goal orientated --WITHOUT-- running up the bill. As a result of his keen knowledge and articulation, we prevailed in the outcome of my divorce. I am so fortunate to have have him at /on my side. I would highly recommend him. He is the the one that will be up to bat for you.
I must also commend his office staff. They were very communicative and informative. As well as being friendly and supportive.
