  • Thomas Klusmeyer

    In the two years I have been working with Sean, I have observed an attorney who will go the extra mile for his clients. In addition to being a compassionate and caring person, Sean is an awesome lawyer. He is always on top of the law applicable to his cases, which helps him obtain the highest settlements for his clients. Sean is a great guy to work with, and he has taught me a lot about being a better trial lawyer.
