  • One of Lee County's top defensive attorneys.
    Sean O'Halloran, by far one of Lee County's top defensive attorneys. He's detailed oriented on how he approaches cases. Very proficient in his professional career. It would be first and probably the only attorney I seek should I need one. Some cases can't be won in the trial, but you'll get every penny worth from him by far.

  • Straightforward with potential outcomes, fought strong to avoid having to go in front of the judge, and made helpful suggestions about the direction that would best serve me.
    Sean was extremely helpful from the initial consultation to the resolution of my matter. Straightforward with potential outcomes, fought strong to avoid having to go in front of the judge, and made helpful suggestions about the direction that would best serve me. I followed up and resolved my complicated case in a way that appeared effortless, even though I know it was more work than he suggested. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs confident and knowledgeable representation.

  • He demonstrated the highest level of experience, expertise, and the relationships needed to provide us with the best possible outcome given the circumstances.
    Our Sons life was turned upside down last December when he was arrested and charged with a DUI. He lost his position in law enforcement the next day. He had never been in trouble before and needless to say, our family was in turmoil. An attorney family friend recommended Mr. O'Halloran as the preeminent DUI attorney in Lee County. Mr. O'Halloran was able to get the charges dismissed against all odds. Our Son is now continuing with his law enforcement career. We cannot say enough about how pleased we are with the representation afforded us by Mr. O'Halloran. He was always available to talk to us either in person or by phone. He took the time to listen to our concerns and to explain in detail what strategy he was taking and what progress was being made in our case. He demonstrated the highest level of experience, expertise, and the relationships needed to provide us with the best possible outcome given the circumstances. We highly recommend Mr. O'Halloran for DUI criminal defense.

  • He is very aggressive when it comes to your defense. He also has professional relationships with most of the prosecutors. This is VERY important.
    I found myself in some serious trouble facing a felony that would have sent me to prison for a number of years. I went to Sean for help. He is very straightforward and will tell you like it is. He will not judge you. He is very aggressive when it comes to your defense. He also has professional relationships with most of the prosecutors. This is VERY important. He knows how to talk to them to get you the best outcome possible. You should take this into account when you hire a defense attorney. Relationships have a huge impact in the criminal defense world. Trust me on this. He also returns calls promptly and his staff is great. To say I recommend him is an understatement. I put my life in his hands. He worked hard for me and was able to get me a good outcome. If you find yourself needing a criminal defense attorney call Sean. I wish you the best in your case.

  • Results --- couldn't have been any better, and even better than Sean had prepared us for.

    I am a lawyer myself, and I was referred to Sean by a lawyer friend. Sean helped us with a misdemeanor juvenile charge for my teenage son, and then also a serious car crash case. Results --- couldn't have been any better, and even better than Sean had prepared us for. Fantastic, no-nonsense lawyer. My new go-to guy. Strongly recommended.

  • Sean is Simply the best!
    Recently relocated and purchased a home in FL. Early retirement was going as planned until a life altering event as I was charged with DUI. What a humiliating and horrible experience. I was refered to Attorney Sean O'Halloran by an attorney friend of mine in the area. He advised if I want the best I should contact Sean. After speaking with then meeting Sean, he developed an coherent and actionable plan. Sean first filed for a hearing with the Dept of Safety. Though his skill and a bit of luck he actually got my regular drivers licence reinstated. Over a period of time and Sean's in depth research and documentation we were able to reach an agreement with the prosecutor, avoid trial and retain my licence was with some restrictions. I did have to pay a large fine, attend classes, and received a serious ticket but was not convicted of a DUI. Sean is a true professional, kept me personally informed, always returned my phone calls and pocesses superior legal acumen in his field of practice. High marks all around including that he genuinely cares. Sean is the simply best!

  • My experience with Mr. Aiken started after an arrest on very serious charges with little merit. Mr. Aiken was completely supportive and uncovered many errors by law enforcement and even the United States Armed forces. He did not hesitate to use their own policies and guidelines against their case and ultimately won the freedom that was unconstitutionally taken away from me. For those searching for a lawyer, I endorse Mr. Aiken 110% for even those facing less serious circumstances.

  • He got the job done for me and he is a very good lawyer.
    I am from Ohio and ended up with a case there. I did an online consultation on a Sunday morning at 3 am and Sean called me that afternoon. I gave him my situation and he explained my options. He got the job done for me and he is a very good lawyer. I hope that I never end up in trouble in Florida again. I would use him again if did.

  • The best word to describe Sean is "GENUINE!"

    I had a minor charged with a misdemeanor. Sean was there explaining everything from the beginning to the end, making everything simple. The best word to describe Sean is "GENUINE!" Definitely the attorney you want on your side, without a doubt. For the best representation call Sean.

  • He executed a detailed plan right away.
    I would like to start out by saying Mr. Aiken is a great guy and his legal ability in top-notch! I was facing an accusation of rape (sexual battery) by a co-worker after getting together one evening after work. After being served with a warrant at my residence by two Sheriff Deputy's for the collection of my DNA, I started doing extensive research for the best criminal defense lawyer. I narrowed down the search to four lawyers in the Sarasota/Bradenton area and two lawyers in the Tampa Bay area. After my research was completed, I met with and interviewed all of the lawyers. Due to Mr. Aiken's background as a federal agent, federal prosecutor and criminal defense experience and my gut feeling, it was a no brainier "I hired Mr. Aiken"! He executed a detailed plan right away. What he told me needed to be done he did, what he promised me he would give me he gave, and most importantly he got my case dismissed before charges were filed! I truly felt like he treated me like a family member as opposed to just one of his clients. If you are facing a serious crime, you can feel confident in hiring Mr. Aiken!

  • He is very caring and understanding with family members that have to deal with the crisis.
    Attorney Aiken is very knowledgeable and professional with the law regarding sexual assault. He helped our son David greatly in representing him. We had numerous face to face meetings with him in his office where he explained all to us, the parents. He is very caring and understanding with family members that have to deal with the crisis. He is always available to talk to either in-office or his private cell phone and if in court always returns your call at the end of the day. He has the best secretary (Kathy) Also to help/talk to and answer any of your questions. We heard from others he was highly regarded by other lawyers, district attorneys, and judges. My husband and I are so thankful we met and hired MR. Aiken and appreciate everything he did for our son and us.

  • Mr. Aiken was very courteous over the phone and professional.

    I called Mr. Aiken for a second opinion on a case I had pending a few months ago. Mr. Aiken was very courteous over the phone and professional. I've heard good things about him and wanted to leave a good review of the time he took with me.

  • His wisdom, hard work, and smart delivery is a reason my son will be spending his future at home with his family.
    We were dealing with a serious legal situation that had a potentially bleak outcome for my son. Mr. Aiken stood out among the group of attorneys we'd spoken to. He was (is) knowledgeable, factual, direct, and caring at the same time! His wonderful assistant, Cathy, was (is) also very helpful and supportive. I appreciated both Cathy's and Mr. Aiken's respect and sensitivity to the closeness of our family and our faith. Mr. Aiken took extra time to include me in communications, and when it was quiet (the legal system definitely takes time), I would find he was working behind the scenes in my son's best interest, often going above and beyond (such as meeting key people in person instead of just phone/email). His wisdom, hard work, and smart delivery is a reason my son will be spending his future at home with his family, and we are so very thankful. He is an excellent and competent attorney as well as a genuine and quality person. Truly, if you want an attorney with expertise who is knowledgeable, smart in how aggressively he fights for you, and sincerely cares about the outcome, you will find Mr. Aiken is your best choice.

  • I would trust him regarding any serious criminal matter.

    Peter Aiken is an attorney at the top of his game. He is very smart, clearly knows what he is doing, and is a consummate professional. Plus, he is also a good, decent, compassionate man. He represented my father in a sex crime case with two charges (sex crime cases are some of the hardest out there, by the way. Very often coming down to he said/she said with the onus on the accused to prove their innocence). The first charge against my father had a mandatory 15-year sentence in prison. My father was 85 years old at the time and that would have been equivalent to a death sentence for him. Because my father lives out of the country, he was essentially denied bond leading up to the trial. Clearly, at 85 years old, jail is not the healthiest place to be. Because of this, not only did Mr. Aiken elegantly defend my father, but he kept the case moving very quickly. He went from arrest to trial in less than 6 months. If you know anything about the courts, this feat, in itself, is near miraculous. Mr. Aiken kept a full-court press on the prosecutor throughout the entire experience. During the trial itself, she looked like an amateur next to Peter. The case was resolved with the jury choosing the second charge and the judge sentencing my father to 8 months in jail, with 6 months basically already served. From what I could tell, no sex crime charge is a slam dunk case. There is a lot of bias and stigma attached to even being accused of such a crime. With this being said, Mr. Aiken took a case that could have easily ended up with my father dying in jail and he secured his freedom in record time. To go from a felony charge with a mandatory 15-year sentence to a misdemeanor charge with an 8-month sentence was absolutely amazing. And, as amazing as it is, with hard work, great command of the law, and a highly strategic mind, Peter almost made it look easy (though none of us really took a breath until the jury returned its verdict---because with a jury you just never know). From the start, Peter said jury selection was one of the most critical aspects of a trial like this. He not only aced that, he pretty much aced every move he made building up to the trial and in the courtroom itself. I give Peter Aiken my highest recommendation. He essentially saved my father's life. And, as I inferred earlier, he's also one heck of a nice guy. It is actually a pleasure to know him. He was more like a concerned member of our family or a close family friend than simply the best attorney we could have possibly chosen. While he may not be the cheapest, his fees are reasonable considering his excellence, expertise, and the results he delivers. If you or anyone you know is facing sex crime charges, and only the best will do, Peter Aiken should be your obvious choice. Incidentally, if Peter can get results like this with a sex crime, I would trust him regarding any serious criminal matter. I can't imagine you could find better representation than Mr. Peter Aiken.

  • Former federal agent and former federal prosecutor
    I consulted Pete back in March of 2019 and then hired him for my legal matters after my arrest. My Destructive Device felony allegation ended up Nolle Prosequi and my VOP case was dismissed. His background as a former federal agent and former federal prosecutor involving weapons offenses, as well as his dedication, is why I chose him to handle my case. Very good fit.

  • He explained in detail the exact process and what to expect.

    Sean took the time to explain to me the details of my case, even before I hired him. He did not sugar-coat anything; he explained in detail the exact process and what to expect. During the course of my case, if I had a question, he was prompt in his answers, whether through the phone or email. I just had some minor issues with clerical errors on paperwork, but it was corrected immediately. Overall, Sean was very knowledgeable and understood the judicial process.

  • Mr. Ohalloran helped our son. He was facing some severe felony charges. I researched and saw his reviews and that he was a former prosecutor. He knows what he is doing. He had my son out of jail in one month with no probation The funny part is.....He didn’t even need to spend much time on the case because after we hired him ....he got to work immediately. He kept in touch with me and I would recommend him to anyone who is facing some jail time He got the job done with no drama and straight forward results Thank you Sean
