Sean guided us through a very difficult and emotional situation. The outcome of our case was not only sucessful but more so than others in our same situation. Sean gathered all the facts and helped us make the best decisions as we went before our Judge. He understood the situation we were facing and the impact on our family. We appreciated his willingness to take on such a difficult case, having never represented someone in our situation before. Sean was always quick to respond to our emails and phone calls.

When an incredibly nasty divorce became my reality and allegations were made against me it was not the law enforcement community that I could rely upon. It was Mr. Sean T Mcalister and the experts associateAfter over a decade of service to my country in the military and support of other government initiatives I found myself in an incredibly nasty divorce. When allegations with no evidence were made against me it was not the law enforcement community that I could rely upon to see through to the truth of the matter. The person that I relied upon was Mr. Sean T Mcalister and the experts associated with The Texas Legal Team.
Sean’s amazing attention to detail and understanding of the law made him an absolute asset to have in my entire ordeal. At no stage of the ordeal was it a mystery to him as to what course of direction to take. While I felt an absolute victim of the system that performed little to no investigation Sean was diligent in his research and methodical in his approach to shed the truth upon the circumstances that had been devised against me to support as I said earlier an absolute diabolical divorce.
If you are faced with similar circumstances I would urge you to reach out to Sean or any of his professional team and get the actual law on your side before entering into any discussion with a police official. Believe me when I say that your best option is to have him with you at the FIRST discussion!
The good news is he resolved my case and I went on with my life. After the case concluded he continued to communicate with me and had the false allegations removed from my record entirely.
In summary an Sean is an amazingly skilled lawyer that you can rely upon to have determination and dedication. If you find yourself in a similar situation my best advice is to say the law enforcement officials are not your allies and will urge you to immediately communicate with Sean or his team.

I hired Sean to defend my son who was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery. He was the third attorney I hired with the first one quitting to become a corporate attorney and the second one being totally unresponsive. Within 5 weeks, my son who had been in county jail for over a year was heading to Austin to attend a drug rehab program with 5 years probation. He totally understands the processes, makes no promises but works diligently to get the best possible outcome for his clients. I have come to know him as a person, not just as an attorney and now realize that to be a good attorney you need to be a good person and he is both.

My name is Madeline and I have a son named Danny, a few years back my son was charged with multiple felonies, it started when he was only 10 years old. My son was thrown to the floor and a teacher put her knee in his throat and he was later choked by a teacher. My son had issues; he had been diagnosed with some mental disorders. He was a blemish to a perfect school district. The school's way to get rid of him was to charge him, even if he brushed against a teacher in the hallway. I was fighting the district, I asked them to please place my son in a setting for children with special needs, such as he, and I asked to have a meeting with the head of the district, the very next day my son was charged again, he had done nothing wrong. This is when the fight really began Sean Mc Alister saw my son and I sitting in the hall of the court room and asked me why was Danny there again,? By this time I believe that it was becoming evident that something was just not right. I explained to him the situation, and he offered to help my son, I did not have the money to pay him, so, he did it for free, he stated to me that he just wanted to help Danny. That is exactly what he did, he helped to get him in a private school for children with disabilities, he worked with Danny's counselors and therapists, and he got the charges against him dropped. Later, we found out that Danny suffers with brain seizures and he was put on medication for this disorder. Danny has been in the private setting for 5 years and has not been charged with anything, at all, what so ever. Danny is graduating in June, the child that once could not sleep for the fear of bad dreams and who did not want to be touched for the fear of being hurt has now blossomed into a wonderful young man. I often wonder if Sean Mc Alister did not fight for this child, where would he have ended up?
