Amazing job
Sean did an amazing job handling my motorcycle incident. I didn't have to do hardly anything and he handled all communication and negotiation with the insurances companies. It allowed me a peace of mind to focus on recovery from injuries and the final outcome was more than satisfactory!

The Best
We had a pressing legal issue and sought out Sean Clayton, who was recommended by a friend in Durham. Sean was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. An all-around nice guy. He solved our problem quickly and avoided a lot of difficulty for our family. For any future legal issues, we would contact Sean first.
