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.

Leadership is not something that is new to Brendan.

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. Just recently Brendan was appointed by the Florida Bar to serve a three year term on the prestigious standing committee on the Unlicensed Practice of Law.

As a community minded person, Brendan regularly appears in court at shelter hearings as a pro bono attorney for the Guardian Ad Litem of Broward County.

The attorney's attorney.
I am actually an attorney myself. When I learned I was being taken advantage of by my interior designer, I called a few trusted colleagues regarding recommendations on whom to hire. Consistently, the same name came back: Brendan Sweeney. Brendan did one helluva a job and I cannot say enough good things about him.

Excellent real estate attorney
I was so fortunate to have Brendan Sweeney as my attorney for the recent sale of my home to a developer. While I thought I could manage the process myself, it became clear that I needed legal representation. Brendan handled those communications, allowing me to concentrate on the actual process of packing and moving. All is well!!

Construction Lawyer
Mr Sweeney and his team did a great job with my case. They were very attentive and honest. They took time to sit and explain the steps to how we were going to resolve the case. They were very patient throughout the process that took two years and we're always one phone call away. Great communication between phone calls and emails as well. Will highly recommend them in the future to friends and clients.

Greg Hoffman - Very satisfied customer
I hired Attorney Sweeny for a consultation on a matter that was keeping me awake at night. The night i spoke to him, i slept like a baby. First of all he scheduled the call the same day i requested it which meant a great deal to me and second of all he totally eased my concerns, clarified the law for me and explained to me in detail exactly what i wanted to know. Next step is hiring Attorney Sweeney to draw up all my contracts.

Great help through entire contract process
I recently hired Brendan to handle the quick purchase of an investment beach condo in Maryland directly from the seller. Although physically located in Fort Lauderdale, Brendan facilitated the Maryland process making it a seamless experience for me. I especially appreciated his examination of the housing inspector’s report due to his expertise in construction law as well as real estate law. Brendan also is a great communicator and kept me updated on a regular basis from start to closing. I highly recommend consulting/hiring Brendan for real estate and construction legal matters.

Winner!
Mr. Sweeney helped me dealing with some complicated issues with a national mortgage company. The case was an uphill battle and not guaranteed that I would prevail, but we did! He was able to negotiate a settlement deal that I was comfortable with. It was rare to come out on top with the case I had, but we were determined. He was very easy to contact, not only by phone but by e-mail as well. He was thorough in answering my questions and explaining everything at hand. He also he did not make any assumptions or move forward with anything without letting me know what was happening. I am very appreciative for everything he did for me.

Great lawyer
I have been a paralegal for one of the world's leading complex litigation firms for over 12 years, however, when I needed help to solve a personal problem I contacted Mr. Sweeney and I am glad I did. Mr. Sweeney and his staff were very professional and helpful, they kept me updated throughout the litigation and resolved my case quickly. It was a pleasure doing business with Brendan Sweeney and his associate, I would definitely recommend them.
