YOUR VOICE. YOUR ADVOCATE. CALL TODAY!

I am a trial lawyer dedicated to the representation of catastrophically injured individuals and their families in personal injury and wrongful death litigation throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I specialize in complex civil litigation involving:

 

·         Construction Accidents

·         Industrial Accidents

·         Workplace Accidents

·         Tractor-Trailer Accidents

·         Brain Injuries

·         Electrocution

·         Burn Injuries

·         Medical Malpractice

·         Products Liability

·         Premises Liability

·         Motor Vehicle Accidents

·         Longshoremen Accidents

 

My expertise also extends to the representation of small businesses and construction companies in complex commercial litigation.

 

Known for my hard-hitting style and uncompromising work ethic, I have recovered over $50 million dollars in verdicts and settlements for my clients.  I have been recognized annually as a Super Lawyer by Super Lawyers-Pennsylvania and as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers-New Jersey. Only a handful of attorneys have achieved these honors from Super Lawyers in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania simultaneously.  I have also been recognized annually as a Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers Association.

 

Prior to founding the Quinn Law Group, I was an attorney at prominent Philadelphia-based plaintiff personal injury and defense firms. Prior to entering private practice, I was a Law Clerk for the Honorable Rosemarie Ruggiero Williams of The Superior Court of New Jersey. Clerking at the trial court level provided me with unique and invaluable insight into the judicial system.

 

I graduated from Franklin & Marshall College with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Government and History in 1997. At F&M, I was a Dean's List student and a member of the varsity football team - a team that won three conference championships. I went on to graduate from the Penn State-Dickinson School of Law with a J.D. in 2000. While in law school, I gained litigation experience as a legal intern for a civil trial judge in New Jersey, as a law clerk for a prominent Central Pennsylvania law firm, and as a legal intern in the Environmental Crimes Division of the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office. I also served as the captain of the Penn State-Dickinson Law National Trial Moot Court Team. In 2003, I continued my education by graduating with honors from the Temple University School of Law with an L.L.M. in Trial Advocacy.

 

I am admitted to practice in the state and federal courts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

 

I am a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), Pennsylvania Association for Justice (PaAJ), New Jersey Association for Justice (NJAJ), Philadelphia Bar Association, and Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association (PTLA) where he is a member of the President's Select and Future Leaders Committee.

Sean E. Quinn
My feelings as a mother and satisfied client are what brought me to this web site to express my view. Many people feel that lawyers are in it just for the money but for Sean it is different-he actually wants to help and he doesn't settle for less. During extended visits to his office, I have experienced a distinct pleasure in seeing what he has done for people that have put their trust in him. My personal case was successfully settled outside of court due to Sean’s abilities as a strong negotiator. There is never a case too big or too small for him, and every client has his full devotion and attention 100% of the time. As his mother and client I am proud to say that these types of qualities are rare to come by. Furthermore, he is one of the best personal injury attorneys out there. I would highly recommend Sean Quinn to anyone seeking representation.

Quinn Law Group and his staff were very professional. All of my concerns were promptly addressed. My medical needs were handled with great medical providers. I did not have the hassle of dealing with the insurance companies. All of my issues were resolved, and a generous settlement was negotiated. I would highly recommend this law firm.

Mike Degrande - spectacular counsel
I had a very good case that would not settle. We took this all the way to trial. After four years, we finally were heard. Mike Degrande of Quinn Law did such a great job. He was prepared. He was witty. He was everything I could have asked for in an attorney. There were a lot of twists and turns but I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else when it was all said and done. Quinn law. Mike Degrande. Fantastic representation.

Satisfied Indeed
Sean and his staff were so very helpful with my automobile accident case. Sean and Mike had to unravel some things that I would NOT have had any idea where to begin. It was such a pleasure to have Caroline Thomas as my pre-litigation case manager. Sean, she is a gem! She was able to advise me what was going on with my case in a manner that I could understand and she never seemed to feel I was a nuisance. Case took 3 yrs, so I feel like family. Thanks to the Quinn Law family. :)

Honest attorney who truly wants the best for his client.
From the start this was a difficult case, however thru many challenges, I always felt protected. Top notch medical providers were recommended and scheduled whenever necessary. Although challenges arose, Sean's team always met them head-on. When the time came, their ability to read the room allowed for a settlement that was fair and reasonable. These guys simply wont be pushed around by the insurance companies, highly recommend

Professional, Courteous & Reliable. Outstanding!
When my wife 8 months pregnant, myself & my 3 year old son were rear ended at high speeds by an SUV on the highway & rushed to the emergency, I knew we needed top notch representation. Sean Quinn came highly recommended. Most personal injury attorneys look for a quick easy settlement. Sean knew the value of the case & NEVER wavered. His attention to detail & communication skills are second to none. Sean & his staff gave us continuous updates. We always felt that he was fully vested in our case. Ultimately, results are what matter. I was most impressed at his deposition skills. He shredded the defense & solidified we would get the max settlement for each of our cases. Much more than we initially expected. What mostly differentiates Sean from the rest is he is a tenacious TRIAL lawyer. He is not afraid to push it to the limit in order to get the result you deserve even if it means going to court. If ur looking for an honest, hard working, result oriented personal injury attorney, Sean Quinn is the one.

Knocked it out of the park!
I found myself in my first auto accident and I was completely clueless on what to do. I reached out to a friend who was an attorney but he recommended Sean for my case due to the complexity of it. Sean took the time to carefully go over everything and explain any areas I still had questions about. He was always in contact and checking in on our family to make sure we were all holding up. Over time, Sean became more like family to us than just a hired attorney. He’s gone above and beyond in so many ways and I couldn’t be more thankful for him and his team. We’ve had some curve balls along the way from my insurance company but Sean was still able to knock our case out of the park. I couldn’t be happier with how everything was handled. I’ve recommended many people to him and will keep doing so in the future. He truly is one of the best attorneys in the area!

Excellent
I was in a car accident and had no idea what legal issues were involved. After losing a great deal of money on an no-fault accident, Sean helped me tremendously. I went into the process blind and he explained it all in a way that I could understand and worked hard to make sure I got what I lost and more! Highly recommend, it was a great experience and my questions were always answered quickly!! I am a very happy customer!

Bad automobile accident, helpful, knowledgable attorney and team!
I was "broadsided" by a young driver who ran a red light, going approx. 90 mph. It was obviously not " my time". (Thank God) I was personally referred to Sean E. Quinn, because of his expertise in this field. I only had limited tort, but he still came out and explained the process, made it seamless, & most importantly reviewed my automobile insurance policy and made the proper recommendations, which was huge! I was hurt and suffered from PTSD, and still do... the right doctors were put in place to treat my injuries. The case settled in a reasonable amount of time... I would highly recommend Sean and his team...as I already have done so!!

Thank You Sean!
Sean and his staff are great! I was hit by a car and Sean helped me with all the legal issues that went along with the accident. He recommended doctors and made sure I got the proper care following the accident. I never had to talk to insurance companies or hospitals-- he took care of all the paperwork and negotiated all my medical bills. I couldn't be more thankful for the work Sean did!
