Honda, Takata consultation!
Hi, I was referred to Mr. Sean Phillip Park, by a very close and reliable friend who is an attorney as well. The difference was that Mr. Park had a licence to practice in Florida. This is where my vechile accident took place. My friend doesnt have a licence there. I realized by my introductory phone call, that Mr. Park wasnt like the dozen of attorneys that I have previously talked to. I was able to speak directly to him. Not a information intake person who was reading off a written script. He not only asked questions in regards to my accident, but engaged in a sincere adult conversation. He was up front with me in regards to my chances of helping me. He looked under nooks,and crannies to come up with a solution. After weeks of investigating, Mr Park still returned my calls, and gave me great advise. At this point I will be going into a different direction. If something changes, i will jump at the chance to hire Mr. Park. He doesn't give you false promises, or paints a rose garden for you. Not like the other law firms, that promise you have a case. If you have the opportunity to take some time to engage in conversation with Mr. Park, you will attest to every word I said.

Kind and compassionate Consultation
I called Sean with questions concerning Wrongful Death, and had a very informative and soothing conversation at the same time. I deeply appreciate Sean's careful listening to my situation. It was clear that I was at the center. He definitely stands out as one who has integrity and kindness in a hard line of work.
Response from Sean Park October 7, 2020

Best of the best!
Sean was very attentive and informative during the process. From the beginning, his empathetic nature truly helped to provide understanding and comfort even during our grief. Whether it was quick response times, to phone calls and texts just to provide us with kind words or updates, he was with us until the very end and my family is forever grateful for his representation.

Great attorney!
Sean did a great job. If you contact him he will always either talk to you instantly or get back to you in a very timely manner. He was the first lawyer I ever had and I couldn't have been happier. Mine was a PI case settled to max amount. He's professional, courteous, and genuine - I now consider him a good friend.

Smart and generous
Sean advised us on a thorny claim process, after a hit and run accident. He was generous, candid, lucid, and helpful. Should we have a substantial complaint we need to file at any point, he most certainly has our trust. Thank you, Sean!

Generous with advice
Sean was helpful and gave me great advice even though I didn't end up using his services. Very honest of him to not bill me anyways! Too time out his weekend to answer questions, and steered me in the right direction. If I ever needed to hire someone in this realm, it would definitely be him.

Caring and Concerned
Caring and concerned are not usually synonyms for a lawyer, but they are definitely words I would use to describe Sean. After moving from the state I had lived in for 50 years, I was feeling quite isolated with finding someone I could trust for legal advice. When you move you don’t have people you have relied on for years. The first time I spoke with Sean I was able to feel relaxed and that someone cared about my issues. In subsequent conversations Sean was timely with his responses and always striving to go above and beyond, even though I wasn’t his client. I will always be appreciative of Sean and the professionalism and concern he showed when I needed him.

Excellent, would highly recommend
I hired Sean to write a liability waiver for my small business. He was knowledgeable, accessible and friendly. He always got back to me quickly and answered any questions I had. I received the completed document in a timely manner and am satisfied with the result. I would recommend him to any family and/or friend looking for a lawyer.

Couldn’t have asked for better representation.
Sean park truly helped my family in our time of need. He helped us navigate the complexities of a personal injury case that we otherwise would not have been able to do ourselves. He made us feel at ease that my mother’s case was being appropriately handled and let her focus on recovery. He was compassionate about my mothers struggle and open to any question that would help us understand what was going on at any given time.

A full-confidence attorney!
I could not have been more pleased with every aspect of my experience with Sean. His blend of professionalism, intuition, and genuine care, keep him in a league of his own. It was evident from our first conversation that Sean is both incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. He composed a plan to ensure I was first and foremost on the road to recovery after my accident, then proceeded to carefully navigate our case to a satisfying and just place of closure. Sean is as good as they come, period. He is also an all-star communicator, which is incredibly important. I would not hesitate to call him again. A million thanks, Sean!

The Only Option
I'd worked with Sean a few years ago after I'd been involved in a car accident. Quite unfortunately, I was rear ended again recently and sustained injuries. As scared and hurt as the incident was for me, I quickly reached out to Sean because I knew that once he became involved, all I had to worry about would be getting better without having to deal with endless calls from insurance companies or worrying about the costs of all the medical bills. Sean is very attentive and responsive while keeping accurate and thorough records so the case can flow smoothly. I truly only had to focus on getting better and Sean took care of the rest. I hope to not have any other incidents where I'd need him, but as stated in my title, in the event I or others ever need an attorney in my opinion Sean is the only option.

Phenomenal Attorney You Can Trust
Sean Park has continually gone above and beyond to take care of me over the years, following up whenever new information is made available and eliminating worry and anticipation from maneuvering the complex legal system. He is committed and driven to help his firm and all his clients succeed. When you are speaking with him it is as if you are his only client. My career involves corresponding with attorneys on a daily basis. Relevant knowledge sets a good attorney apart from a great attorney. Finding a great attorney with compassion, honesty, and dedication to his craft is not an easy task. Additionally, Sean is very reasonably priced! I am lucky to have met Sean Park, and would not be in the same place without him.

Brilliant!
Sean was absolutely brilliant with my malpractice case! By far the most outstanding attorney I have ever had. He was extremely professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. In addition to always being prepared, he also made sure that I completely understood what was going on every step of the way and without feeling pressured. Legal verbiage can be difficult, but he answered every question I had in ways that I could understand it. He allowed me to make informed decisions throughout the process as well. The case was a difficult malpractice case, and Sean went above and beyond to help me in any way that he could. The case was settled in my favor and I can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend Sean. If I need an attourney again in the future, he will be my first call!

Our Great Experience with Sean
My husband and I can't thank Sean enough for all he did for us. Not only was he so kind but most importantly he always informed us with any little or big change and was so easy to get ahold of. My husbands car accident took a big toll on our family in many ways; however, Sean made everything less stressful and was able to settle our case in just 4 months (which is amazing)! Both my husband and I developed a great relationship with Sean and have nothing but the most respect for him. We would highly recommend him to anyone we no in need of an amazing lawyer.
