This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in Iowa.
Sean’s comment: “This is NOT another reprimand. Its for the same thing in WI 7 years ago. This is all because a client gave me an unexpected bonus on a Public Defender case. I don't do Public Defender work anymore because of this nonsense. A DA in WI was given nothing for sexting crime victims due to his position. But since I'm not in position of power, I don't get the same consideration.”
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Sean’s comment: “This is extremely misleading. Look at my case results, endorsements and client testimonials right here. I am one of the best. PERIOD. I have REAL REVIEWS from REAL PEOPLE. Check my website and my Facebook page. Can't buy the ratings and trust. AVVO is flawed. I was a 7.6 and would be an 8 or 9 if not for this axe grinding client . Hire me and see how I treat you. YOU will be my next endorsement.”

I was injured at a theatre and they were totally unconcerned. Sean stuck by me and worked with them to get the best results possible. He treated me like a friend and made me feel like I mattered....and really what more can you ask for?

Sean is an amazing lawyer! He won a huge criminal case for my family and friends, as well as always being available for questions and concerns! Fabulous communication and dedication. I recommend him 100%!

Sean was quite thorough and fought hard to uphold my reputation. He got me the desired outcome and made me feel comfortable and reassured throughout the process. He was very empathetic about my situation. Highly recommended.

I have worked with Sean O'Neill in several complex cases over the years, and I am always glad when he is involved because he will not tacitly sit by the sidelines while I work the case. He is skilled in the use of both civil and criminal procedure. Sean is patient with his clients and works hard to advocate their positions. His professional colleagues in this area respect Sean. I endorse this lawyer.
