Miami, FL - Ratzan Weissman & Boldt (RWB), a national trial law firm specializing in matters involving medical malpractice, catastrophic personal injuries, product defects, wrongful death, and birth injuries has tapped trial lawyer Sean M. Cleary to join its ranks as ‘Of Counsel.’

Miami-based RWB is expanding to capture a broader swath of casework in jurisdictions across the U.S., with an emphasis on matters in California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Georgia, New Jersey and Colorado. Cleary has joined forces with RWB attorneys as co-counsel in several past matters.

“Sean shares our firm’s deep commitment to deterring harmful conduct, promoting community safety, and holding wrongdoers accountable for negligent behavior,” said Ratzan Weissman & Boldt Founding Partner Stuart Ratzan. “Our team has worked with Sean on cases in the past, and he’s become like extended family, making his addition to Ratzan Weissman & Boldt a natural move for all of us.”

“I have always appreciated Ratzan Weissman & Boldt’s approach to trying cases, from performing due diligence and analyzing every legal theory imaginable, to conducting mock trials and focus groups ahead of trial,” explains Sean M. Cleary. “When it comes to trial firms across the country capable of taking on sophisticated matters in multiple jurisdictions, Ratzan Weissman & Boldt really stands out.”

Over the past 25 years, Cleary has helped victims secure more than $200 million in verdicts and settlements in cases involving serious personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and product liability. In 2021, Cleary teamed up with Ratzan Weissman & Boldt in securing a $12 million jury verdict for the family of a man who died after falling through a faulty skylight located atop a commercial property that he was repairing. Other results included securing $14 million for a client whose car accident caused a traumatic brain injury and $12.7 million for the victims of a commercial helicopter crash.

Before founding his own firm, Cleary was a personal injury lawyer at Miami’s Colson Hicks Eidson, and NY-based Stroock, Stroock & Lavan before that. He earned his juris doctorate from University of Miami School of Law and is currently licensed with the Florida Bar. He is active in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and currently serves as the Miami, Florida ABOTA Chapter Membership Chair.
