Sean Patrick Riordan is an associate at Brecher Fishman Pasternack Heller Walsh & Tinker, a firm committed to personal injury lawsuits.
After graduating with a B.A. in political science from Molloy College, Sean received his law degree in 2004 from St. John's University School of Law.
Riordan converges his Irish roots with his legal career with memberships in the Nassau County Brehon Law Society and The American Ireland Fund Young Leaders group.
Of how his Irish roots affect his current law practices, Riordan says, "Being Irish provides me with the knowledge of what injustice looks like, and the strength to help fight against it today."
He serves on the Board of Directors for the Feel Good Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to education and relief of health and financial burdens on the first responders to the 9/11 attacks.
He lives in New York with his wife, Elizabeth, and two young children who, Sean hopes, will value their Irish heritage "when they are old enough to appreciate anything other than Mickey Mouse!"
A second-generation Irish-American, Sean has roots in Counties Armagh, Roscommon, Cork and Mayo.
