“I have my life to thank him for.”

I had a heavy Motorcycle crash that wasn’t my fault in 2017. Sean took the helm on my situation legally with absolute professionalism. Sean was always keeping me in the loop on the ever growing situations and I couldn’t imagine handling that side of the legalities myself.

Over the years of my recovery, Sean was not only my lawyer but also a friend. I have my future looking much brighter after what Sean has achieved for me. Without his work, help, support and advice, I’d be screwed.

Whilst at Queensland University of Technology, Lawyers Weekly Magazine selected Sean as one of the top 8 law students in Australia. His selection was based on his innovative approach to helping ordinary Australians gain access to justice where they would otherwise not be able to afford it. Sean feels privileged to continue to help those in need today.

After completing his Bachelor of Laws, Sean commenced his legal career working for a large defendant law firm Queensland to gain insight into how insurers defend claims brought by injured victims. He continued his legal career in New York City, working for one of the worlds’ largest defence law firms before returning to Brisbane.

Working on the defence never felt right for Sean, and he remembers his colleagues would question him at times, saying things like “are you sure you’re on the right side?” and “you know that we are Goliath, not David, right?”. Unsurprisingly, Sean resigned from working for defendant law firms permanently and decided to focus his efforts on helping individuals take the insurers to task.

Before becoming a lawyer, Sean completed a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management at the University of Queensland and worked as a Management Consultant and Valuer in an award winning ASX listed engineering firm. In fact, through this work in 2011 he independently valued each of the 68 State-owned courthouses in Queensland. Sean also helped teach the principles of property valuation to students at the University of Queensland.

Sean’s experience as a consultant and teacher makes him an excellent communicator so you can be assured that he will keep you fully informed throughout your case in a way that you can actually understand.

If your case is managed by Sean, you will have his personal phone number and can call at any hour of the day to talk about your case.
