Sean D. Hummel, Principal, is a graduate of the University of Florida (Bachelor of Science, 1988) and University of Florida’s Fredric G. Levin College of Law (1991). After passing the Florida Bar in 1992, Sean entered into private practice in Fort Lauderdale, FL, focusing on General Civil Litigation, including Personal Injury, Domestic Relations, Tenant Evictions, Bankruptcy, and Guardianships.
In 1995, he moved to Washington, DC, and was admitted to the Virginia State Bar (1996) and the District of Columbia Bar (1998). It was during this time in Washington, D.C. that he started to practice Immigration Law. His cases involved representation of clients in the U.S. Immigration Court (removal defense and asylum) in the Arlington and Baltimore Immigration Courts, Family-based immigration cases, Naturalization cases, Non-immigrant Visa cases (Extension of Status, Change of Status, and Student Visas) and representing businesses that were sponsoring workers for immigrant and non-immigrant (H-1B, L-1 and E-1/E-2) Visas. The diverse nature of the population and immigrant community in the Metro-Washington, DC area proved to be an ideal area to gain exposure to immigration issues and to grow in the dynamic field of Immigration Law. During this time, he continued to develop his skills as a civil litigator in the State Courts of Virginia, Maryland (pro hac vice), and also the District of Columbia.
In 2005, Sean relocated to Fort Lauderdale, FL and returned to private practice. In addition to representing individuals and businesses in Immigration cases, his practice areas include:
- PROBATE, ESTATES & TRUSTS, ELDER LAW
- PERSONAL INJURY and CIVIL LITIGATION
Sean is currently a member in good standing of the following State and Federal Bar Associations:
- The Florida Bar (since 1992)
- The Virginia State Bar (inactive)
- The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit
- The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia
- The U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland
- The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia
- The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida
In addition to being well versed in the intricacies of Immigration Law, Sean has extensive experience as a litigator in various legal forums. His experience in a wide variety of practice areas allows him to broadly analyze his client’s needs and customize a solution to each client’s individual satisfaction.
