Minneapolis Minnesota Attorney Sean Shiff

Sean is a Minnesotan through and through, having been born and raised in the Twin Cities and attending high school, college and law school here. He is married with three beautiful daughters who are tougher and more tirelessly determined than any opposing counsel, and from that he has learned to pick his battles. When he's not working hard for his clients, Sean manages to find time for his other passions in life, including writing/recording songs, playing golf and basketball, and cross country skiing.

As a trial lawyer, I know what to look for in terms of skills and knowledge when I need to recommend a lawyer for a friend or client. I have collaborated with Sean on several matters, and have also referred clients in need of civil litigation, business disputes, divorce and child custody matters. I send people I care about to Sean because I know he will take care of them the right way by understanding their problem, advocating with skill and zeal, and giving straightforward advice. He is a good lawyer and a good man."
