  • Keeley D. Heath

    I met Sean while attending the Spence Trial Lawyer's College for three weeks near Dubois, Wyoming in July of 2011. I was impressed with Sean right away. He has a natural talent for being a trial attorney, and more importantly, has a huge heart which he opens up to his clients. Sean's skill, combined with his drive to fight for the clients that he represents, is unstoppable in a courtroom. Sean has all of the skills and talent necessary to take a case to trial and win. I would recommend Sean Brown to anyone looking for an attorney in Alaska, whether it be for a personal injury or a criminal matter.
