Google Review - from Tim

I had a heavy Motorcycle crash that wasn’t my fault in 2017. Sean took the helm on my situation legally and took it on 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.

I have my life to thank him for.

Leading Roche Legal’s Springwood office (and floating across Brisbane City and the Sunshine Coast offices), Sean helps clients obtain maximum compensation for motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, public liability claims, and TPD claims. He has recovered millions of dollars for his clients.

Through free initial consultations, Sean helps clients quickly identify the strengths and weaknesses in their potential claim. From the outset, he explains in simple terms the best way to navigate the legal process to be sure that the maximum possible compensation is obtained in the shortest period of time.

As the Director of the firm, Sean is able to be flexible with his clients’ specific needs without any red tape.

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

After completing his Bachelor of Laws, Sean commenced his legal career in New York City, working for one of the worlds’ largest defence law firms before returning to Australia and being admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court of Queensland and later the High Court of Australia.

Early in his career, Sean worked for a large defendant law firm Queensland, representing and helping insurers defend claims brought by injured victims.

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?”. After considering these comments, Sean resigned from working for defendant insurers and decided to focus his efforts on helping individuals take the insurers to task. Sean has vowed to never work for defendant insurers ever again.

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.
