  • Sean M. Sweeney

    I have worked with Jeremy for a number of years. He is an excellent lawyer and excellent colleague. Jeremy's greatest strength is cutting through to the heart of an issue and seeing how to get to a resolution without the need for unnecessary theatrics or unproductive posturing.
