Attorney Profile

Sean Driscoll is one of the Chicago medical malpractice attorneys and personal injury lawyers representing clients of Clifford Law Offices. His legal acumen is demonstrated time and again in high-stakes cases on which he works at the firm. In February of 2013, Sean obtained a record $16 million verdict with partner Kevin Durkin on behalf of the families of a 14-year-old and a 19-year-old who were killed when trapped in a grain bin. It was the highest verdict in Carroll County history; the previous record was under $250,000. Sean received a 2015 Trial Lawyer Excellence Award by the Jury Verdict Reporter of the Law Bulletin Publishing Company for his outstanding work on that case.

Sean attended the University of Dayton where he studied Communications and Political Science, graduating cum laude. He went on to DePaul University College of Law where he was a Moot Court Society Member and a finalist in the Client Counseling Competition. His trial experience is wide-ranging, leading to his being named one of Chicago's Top 40 Under 40 in 2011 by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company. He has also been recognized by Super Lawyers for the last seven years as a Rising Star in the legal community. 

Sean is an excellent trial lawyer. He handles each case with thoughtfulness and thoroughness, works hard for his clients, and his strategizing and working through the cases elicits respect from his peers on both sides of the aisle. 

Clifford Law Offices is proud of Sean Driscoll's work at the firm and in Chicago as a leading medical malpractice and personal injury attorney.
