Sean O'Neill is a extremely knowledgeable and experienced Attorney. I was facing several serious charges and a felony charge that could have altered my life permanently. Sean listened to me, looked at all the facts and then used every resource needed to provide the needed evidence to clear my name. What's more is I really felt I had someone who was in this with me. When I felt beaten he was there to remind me that I have rights and that I had to stay the course. In the end I think of Sean not just as an attorney, but as a friend. Sean provided better service than some big name firms and charged me reasonable fees when every other Attorney refused my Case. Highly recommended as long as you are open and honest Sean will make sure you are given the best possible outcome. Thanks Sean.

Sean went out of his way to communicate with us every step of the process. We were confident that our legal dispute with a land lord was resolved quickly and in our favor. Proud to be his client

I was really worried when I had my traffic "issues". I actually had a "hit and run" that turned out to be pretty serious. I'm very conservative and don't get into a lot of trouble.
I called Mr. O'Neill. He assured me that it was going to be ok and then he simply made them go away. Or so it seemed. It was simple and painless. I will go back to this office in a heart beat if I run into trouble in the future. Mr. O'Neill makes something scary into something you can understand, you can realize that it's going to be ok. You will feel better after speaking to this attorney.

Sean O'Neill helped me very much after I put myself in a bad situation while visiting La Crosse. To make things more complicated, I needed to handle this criminal case long-distance due to living 4 hours away. Because of Sean's work I only needed to make the trip to La Crosse once for an initial appearance. Sean was very knowledgeable and trustworthy about the facts of my case and kept me informed throughout the entire process. As a result of hiring Sean I received a favorable conclusion in the case and avoided a criminal blemish on my record. I would highly recommend Sean O'Neill if you need criminal defense. From my experience he has high integrity and treated me well.

We have hired Mr. O'Neill on several occasions for family and business matters. He listened to our problems and was very knowledgeable on the legal problems in which he represented us. He was also very personable and friendly and always answered our questions. On one of our family cases he went above and beyond what was required to do to help us. If the need arises we will continue to use Mr. O'Neill in the future, because he has served us well in the last 10 years.

This was my first time getting into a serious pickle. Sean was very comforting and straight forward. Which made me happy to have him help me out. No bs just the facts and his things would possibly go. Very professionally handled.

He had cleared up the confusion of my case and pointed me in the right direction with confidence. Responded to a message I left with his assistant promtly and an over-all straight forward advisor.

Sean was hired to help fight a PO violation case that could possibly send the client back to jail for 5+ years. It was important that the lawyer chosen was able to obtain factual information and work closely on the case making sure that there would be a fair trial. 2 months into the case it was dropped due to lack of proper information/evidence. Sean kept us informed about everything going on and was honest at all times about our options. We were recommended to him by previous clients and I would recommend him to others as well.

A very complicated criminal case that could of went either way. Sean O niel worked a plee deal with the district attorneys office that resulted in a fourth of the time if convicted. His knowledge and expertise of the case, along with his long hard work brought about a positive conclussion that was well excepted. I highly recommend Sean O neil he gets results

WE HAVE WORKED WITH SEAN ON ALL KINDS OF CASES FOR MANY YEARS. WE WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE WORK THAT SEAN PERFORMED AND THE OUTCOME OF ALL OUR CASES.

When Sean understood the facts of my case, he decided that I had a solid case and a good chance to win several decisions in my wife's divorce. Many months later in court, his judgement proved to be true. I believe Sean likes to proceed on the merits of a case rather than on the questionable tactics that some other attorneys employ.
Sean's style is to be straightforward and pleasant; he treats everyone courteously which is a noticable difference from the intimidation tactics of some other lawyers. He is a hard worker and truly an ally for his clients. He was good in court both presenting a case and cross-examining.
This divorce was brutal emotionally and the legal fees were substantial but the outcome would have been nasty without Sean.

Mr. O'Neill helped me with my divorce. He advised me appropriately about my options and kept me adequately informed throughout this ordeal. He got me a fair settlement that included alimony and child support that he fought for in court. Excellent experience.

Sean really went to bat for me in my case. He never gave up and kept fighting. He had the case ready for jury trial when it was finally dismissed. He kept me well informed and kept fighting every step of the way.
