Amazing, no-nonsense lawyer
We hired Sean in a traffic case and he could not have been more helpful from the beginning of the case to the end. Even months after the case was resolved and we needed documentation for insurance purposes, he responded quickly and efficiently. If you need a lawyer that will have your best interests in mind (and the experience and track record to back it up,) hire him ASAP. Will recommend to friends and family.

Legal Representation
I hired Sean Branigan for a case that my son had. He received a traffic summons and was looking at a license suspension. Branigan & Associates got the charge against my son dismissed. This firm was reliable, efficient, and affordable. I would recommend anyone who received a traffic summons to give this firm a call you will not regret it!

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2014.

Admonition issued in NJ, 2014
updated on 12/11/2014

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Sean's comment: “As a law firm owner operator Branigan and Associates has served hundreds of satisfied clients. Accordingly the firm has employed dozens of attorneys litigating complex issues for ten years. Only having one admonition (the lowest disciplinary proclamation) is actually outstanding given the volume this firm has handled. On average 3% of attorneys have a complaint filed against them any given year. Meanwhile Sean Branigan has employed dozens of lawyers and has only had one admonition.”

"As an attorney with over 30 years experience in the courts of NewJersey, I have witnessed hundreds of lawyers in action. Sean Branigan is among the best I have seen. His knowledge of the law coupled with his dedication to getting the best results for his clients ranks him among the most effective attorneys in New Jersey. Recently he obtained a result for one of his criminal defendants which had other lawyers asking him in the courtroom " how did you do that?" Sean was able to get straight probation on a Graves Act second degree gun charge, which, by definition carries a mandatory minimum of state prison time. I've also witnessed on numerous occasions his great success in Family law matters, including custody and alimony issues. I highly recommend Sean Branigan, Esq."
