Sean Coonerty

Managing Partner

Sean is the Managing Partner at Siegel & Coonerty. Sean grew up in West Islip, Long Island, NY. After graduating college at Binghamton University, he was offered a scholarship and attended Brooklyn Law School. Following his second year in Law School he began as a Summer Associate for a large and prominent medical malpractice defense firm, where he was hired as an Associate Attorney directly out of law school. However, after a couple of years defending doctors and hospitals, and witnessing first-hand the injustices suffered by the plaintiffs, Sean abruptly changed his career path. He knew his true calling was to fight for the victims of negligence, not defend the perpetrators. In February, 2001, he began working with Andy at his top tier, plaintiff’s personal injury and medical malpractice firm. By January, 2008, Sean became Andy’s partner, and together they founded and developed Siegel & Coonerty, LLP in 2011. Sean has been honored as a Super Lawyer continuously since 2014. He is a member of various other legal organizations, including the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, where he is vocal within the committee on New York State Labor Laws.
