Mr O'Neill helped my wife and I with a dispute regarding our security deposit. We had great success in recovering the entire amount in court. Like some people we had never been involved in a court case and were somewhat apprehensive of the proceedings. But we found ourselves in capable hands with Mr. O'Neill. He kept up with us in weekly correspondence so when the court date finally arrived we had a good working knowledge of the event. I hope we never have to go to court again, but I know if we do that we will use Mr. O'Neill again as our legal counsel.

I hired Mr. O'Neill to handle my divorce case. Being a high-income earner, with an almost twelve year marriage, and a child from that marriage, my wife had filed for divorce and was almost literally asking for the moon. There were many complexities to this case: claimed disability, co-habitation, impending re-marriage, constant deceit and outright dishonesty. The stakes were very high for me financially.
Sean worked very hard to pull the actual facts of the case out of this mire. Before the case even went to trial, Sean had laid down a very convincing set of arguments in my favor to the judge. When the trial finally occurred, I was extremely pleased with the outcome; I honestly could not have asked for a better result. Not only did Mr. O'Neill get my child support reduced, he was able to reduce my alimony payments to a near trivial sum, expiring completely in one year! In all fairness, my ex-wife made many mistakes of judgement which helped my case, however, that does not detract from the excellent job Mr. O'Neill did in presenting my case and fighting for a fair decision based on the facts. I actually felt like justice was served; rare in our court system.
He is very straight forward, very honest, very hard working and I felt he truly cared about me and the outcome. While I have never worked with a lawyer before, I find it difficult to believe that this combination of personal attributes is anything but extremely rare!
Divorces are a painful process. However, Mr. O'Neill made the entire process much more bearable.
If you are looking for a great lawyer to handle your divorce case, I would look no further. While divorces can be an expensive process, it was the best money I ever spent and well worth it. During my initial phone consultation with Mr. O'Neill, more than a year ago, he had made the statement: 'You get what you pay for'.
How right he was...

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
Posted by Haven, a Car Accident 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.
Posted by Dave & Rosa Mooney, a Family client,
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.
Posted by a Probate client,
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.
