Subsequently, he moved on to gain a deep understanding of real estate law and civil litigation while practicing with large international and national law firms representing the world’s largest financial institutions.

He was named as a Florida Legal Elite Up and Comer in 2014 and 2015, and he has also been identified as a Florida Super Lawyer Rising Star in 2014, 2015, and 2016. Brendan is a member of the Florida Bar and the Maryland Bar, and he serves on a number of different relevant American Bar Association and Florida Bar committees.

Reliable, honest, prompt, and courteous legal advice
We recently entered a purchase agreement to buy a home. However, after the home inspection revealed several serious issues, we wanted to withdraw from the agreement . Although our concerns were very legitimate, the seller did not want to release us from the agreement and return our earnest money. We consulted Mr. Sweeney about the situation , and he provided us with clear, honest advice as to how to proceed. Due to his recommendations, the seller acquiesced without us having to resort to litigation. And we got back all of the earnest money. We highly recommend using Mr. Sweeney's services when buying or selling real estate. His advice and guidance are invaluable.

Got the other party to pay within a week
Mr. Sweeney took our construction related case and within a week we received a check from the other party. We tried to get paid for months without results. Once Mr. Sweeney got involved everything moved to our favor. Thank you so much for representing us. We will recommend you.

A Good Choice
I have had the pleasure of having Brendan Sweeney both as a colleague and as my attorney for many years. I don’t normally write reviews for anything, but hiring an attorney is one of the most important decisions a person can make so I felt the need to do this. I think there are three things that make Brendan an excellent attorney. First is experience. He has gone toe-to-toe with lawyers of all kinds. Whether he needs to respond to a complex legal argument from a large international law firm or deal with a shady opposing counsel’s tricks, Brendan handles it with poise. Second is empathy. Brendan genuinely cares about his clients. There are many lawyers and law firms out there who claim to do this, but they will often pass you off to legal assistants, paralegals, or receptionists, and hardly return your calls. Brendan takes the time to communicate with his clients and understands how their particular legal issues affect their lives. Third is professionalism. Not only does Brendan fight for his clients, he does it in a way that earns the respect of judges and other attorneys. This translates into better outcomes for his clients and is something he has earned over years of practicing law. If you are wondering whether to hire Brendan as your attorney, I for one can strongly recommend him.

Highly Recommend Brendan Sweeney
There is no better litigation attorney in South Florida. Brendan Sweeney knows the law inside and out, really believes in what he does, and is an incredible attoney. Mr. Sweeney's team works hard, does excellent work, and cares about the people they represent. Highly recommended.

Excellent Work in a fee dispute resolution
I found myself embroiled in a fee dispute with an unscrupulous law firm based in the Fort Lauderdale area. I had engaged their services to defend me in a Commercial Foreclosure case, only to discover they made no effort to advocate for my interests and presented me with an exorbitant bill. In my search for resolution, I turned to Mr. Sweeney for assistance. Mr. Sweeney not only provided invaluable support throughout the fee dispute but also took the time to elucidate numerous complexities involved in the negotiations. His professionalism shone brightly, demonstrating a keen understanding of navigating intricate negotiations and discerning when to engage in conflict rather than negotiation. I can unequivocally attest that if you seek legal representation that is both ethical and fiercely committed to defending your rights, Mr. Sweeney and his firm are the epitome of what you need in your corner. Don't hesitate to enlist Mr. Sweeney's services; he was a beacon of hope during my ordeal and offered indispensable assistance during trying times. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Sweeney for his invaluable support.

I had the good fortune of finding Mr. Sweeney when looking for an attorney to represent me in a dispute, and I can recommend him without hesitation. He is everything you would want from an attorney - knowledgeable, responsive, pragmatic and most importantly, motivated to obtain the best result for his client. He answers all questions and explains things in a way you can understand; and ultimately develops and implements a plan to accomplish your objectives. I would absolutely hire Mr. Sweeney for any future legal needs.

We had an excellent representation.
Brendan is knowledgeable, ethical and honest. He cares about his clients. Brendan and his legal team represented us in a construction contract involving a fraudulent contractor. Brendan and Rabiah fought for us until the resolution of our case and made sure that we were well represented throughout the whole time. Brendan understand his clients needs and is an expert in his field. We are so thankful!

I had the pleasure of hiring Mr. Sweeney to represent me on a case in which I was 100% satisfied. Mr. Sweeney fought for me and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I was so impressed with his professionalism and candor, with that being said he comes highly recommended. I will never seek legal advice without Mr. Sweeney's guidance.

Resolved contractor lien
Brendan worked with us to resolve a lien a contractor placed on our property. We have had difficulty finding ethical/honest professionals in FL, I wish we had found Brendan sooner. Everything Brendan said in our initial call is exactly what he did, we are very happy with his services and would highly recommend him.
