Super Lawyers Kentucky Rising Stars Personal Injury Attorney. National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff Attorney.

Sean Tillman is a native of Louisville, Kentucky and a second generation attorney. He has spent the majority of his legal career devoting his practice to representing those who have been injured by the reckless and negligent actions of others. Sean started handling personal injury cases after being involved in a serious car accident himself a few years ago. Sean quickly saw how difficult it is to have to deal with insurance companies about paying for your damaged vehicle and medical bills. He has seen the chaos that ensues when you are seriously injured and forced to miss work and other life events. He knows about the psychological and emotional damages that injured victims go through and how it affects relationships with family and friends.

Sean has "walked in the shoes" of other injured people and that gives him a unique perspective  when relating to his clients and when dealing with insurance companies and/or defense attorney's.

Sean has built a reputation for being respectful, charismatic, and honest, but at the same time, aggressive and unwilling to compromise. Sean personally handles every single aspect of his clients cases and that is the key difference between him and other attorney's. Sean has settled several million dollars in settlement recoveries for his clients. He will not back down until he gets the results that his clients want and deserve.

Most trusted attorney
I had hired Sean for a worker’s compensation and personal injury case. He went above and beyond to keep me informed on the process, and worked tirelessly to make sure we had the correct outcome. Since my case, several family members and friends have used Sean’s services, all at my referral, and they are all extremely pleased with his professionalism, caring nature, and attention to detail in their cases.

Multi Vehicle Auto Accident
I knew nobody in Louisville other than commercials on t v had no idea who to contact for help. I did know I didn't want a large firm and to be lost in the shuffle. I stumbled upon Sean Tillman"s father who is also an attorney. After speaking with Him He referred me to Sean. Sean Tillman spent a great amount of time listening to the facts of my situation and suggested a plan of action. Once I hired Mr. Tillman I never had a worry, no calls from insurance companies, medical facilities. Every thing was promptly handled for me. I just wanted everything settled back to the way things were before the incident. A settlement was offered as I expected, figured it might be a little something. To my surprise Mr. Tillman achieved ten times the amount of what I had in mind. Mr. Tillman always answered any call and promptly had an answer to any of my questions. I called a good while, maybe fifteen months after our business concluded and asked a question on a unrelated matter. Once again Sean listened and had an answer for me. Sean Tillman has a pleasant personality and I never felt that He honestly wasn't concerned.

Wonderful Experience
I had a wonderful experience and outcome with Sean Tillman as my attorney. I hired him for my personal injury case and he was so easy to contact and he actually contacted me many times to keep me informed and up to date on my case. Sean is very personable, easy to talk to, and is a great listener. I would certainly use him again and I highly recommend him to others. I can't say enough good things about him!

Excellent
I have been very pleased with Mr. Tillman. I have experienced great communication with him. I was surprised with this as it seems with most people you do not get quick responses or they are hard to get a hold of. This was never the case. Mr. Tillman is very professional and stayed on top of the case. I felt more like family then I did a client. I recommend him, and I myself will hire him again if I ever need counsel.

Outstanding Attorney!
Mr. Sean Tillman has helped my husband and I through a very difficult couple of years following us both being badly injured on public transportation in 2014. He stood by and worked diligently to get us through a very rough time insuring that our medical bills were taken care of and that we had some financial compensation for our pain and suffering. He never made us feel that our questions and concerns throughout our entire ordeal were too much and he always responded to all of out concerns and kept us abreast of everything. I cannot begin to show how thankful we both were to have Mr. Tillman on our side, guiding us and looking out for our best interests from start to finish. I won't hesitate to call on him in the future for any legal problems that may arise. He gave us hope again and we both appreciate the exemplary effort he put forth on our case!

Fantastic Support
Sean is a personal friend and he treated my case with absolute professionalism. He supported me through an emotionally trying time and for that I owe him. You could not have better representation.

Personable class act lawyer
Sean and his father both are two of the best lawyers in the city of Louisville. I've used both on a couple of different things. Sean was probably the easiest lawyer I've ever met to talk to. He got my case settled and closed in less than 3 months after I had a lawyer before for over a year and couldn't even get negotiation talks started. Sean because of his wits and knowledge of the law got max limits on first demand.

A smooth and overall great experience from start to finish!
In September of 2013 I was injured in a car accident by a driver who ran a red light and t-boned the vehicle I was in. The physical repercussions from this wreck were severe. In the following months after the wreck I knew that I needed help and that is when I contacted Mr. Tillman. When I reached out to Sean, as he preferred me to call him, he reassured me that everything was going to be okay. He made it clear that he would fight for me, as a client, to get what I deserved. This made me feel like he genuinely cared about me and that I wasn't just a client, but more like a friend to him. While being a friend, his professionalism was also shown throughout the entire process. I believe his persistence with the insurance companies made it clear to them that he wasn't going to settle for something average. While working with him I honestly felt like he fought for the best possible outcome for me and we got it! He far exceeded my expectations and he delivered on everything single angle. From start, to finish, the process went smoothly. He handled everything in a timely manner and as a result, it made everything a breeze. I would recommend Sean to anyone looking for a Lawyer to fight for them!

Car Accident
Sean Tillman is the best out there! I can say this because i have experience with him. In August of 2013 me and my husband were in a terrible car accident. An 18 yr old girl hit us head on, she crossed traffic because she was texting and driving. My husband was able to get out of the car, but I was trapped inside and unconscious. This was the scariest thing I had ever faced. I thought it was a nightmare. My husbands family had use Sean Tillman father before, but two days later Sean came to our house and met with us. He had been in a car accident before so he knew exactly how I was feeling. He had so much compassion for me and I felt as though he genuinely cared- later on I would come to find out that he actually did care. He is more then a lawyer, he is genuinely GOOD person with a Good heart. My whole life I had heard terrible things about lawyers and their standards. Sean crushed every fear and anxiety I had by standing by me with ever question, concern and care I had. Sean was very easy to get a hold of. Text, email or phone call he would always answer. If he was in a meeting or court, he would immediately call me back as soon as he was done. Sean is a fighter. My insurance company was stubborn and the other drivers insurance company was rude and a joke. He could of easily said, "well I've done all I could-sorry." But he didn't, he fought and kept fighting until we got what we deserved. For this reason, I am forever grateful for Sean. My husband and I were in our Mid-Twenties, and he cared for us like a big brother would care for his younger siblings. He did not let any insurance company, bill collector or hospitals bully, harass and demand things out of us. He handled everything so perfectly and smoothly that its as if we never even had a wreck. To this day, we still call him or text him for advice. I trusted him with my life, my fiances and my care. he exceeded my expectations. If for some reason I would need a lawyer again, I would only choose Seat Tillman. I recommend him to all my friends and family.

Excellent and I would highly recommend for auto accident/personal injury case.
Sean Tillman, was very helpful in my auto accident/Personal injury claim. He treated me as if I was a family member. Always, concerned and checking in to see how I was feeling and how my physical therapy was going. Also, checked in with me to see how doctors appointments went. I feel I was treated very respectful and that my case was handled in a very professional and timely manner. I would highly recommend Sean Tillman for any auto or personal injury case.
