It is with great sadness that we share news of the passing of our founding partner, John F. Sweet. Words cannot do justice to his memory, achievements, and kind-hearted spirit. We all look forward to the chance to mourn his passing and celebrate his lifetime of dedication to the causes, clients, and issues that made him such a uniquely effective advocate and special human being.

At Clements & Sweet, we act out of concern and compassion and believe in quality of counsel, not quantity of clients.
The legal system is complex. It’s our job to understand it and provide expert, strategic advice in a language you can easily understand. To get better answers, we ask better questions. We are passionate about providing sound counsel, but believe our responsibilities go beyond serving as just your legal representatives. Since we opened our doors in 1976, we have represented our clients in the way they deserve: fairly, aggressively, and effectively.
Experience means different things to different people. Whether a case ends in trial or settlement, the attorneys of Clements & Sweet work tirelessly to protect the rights of our clients. Our 40 years of expertise is wide-ranging and our resources are inexhaustible.
We are committed to providing a level of guidance and support that can only come from a strong partnership and a deep understanding of each individual case. We are committed to being where our clients need us, when they need us—at Clements & Sweet you will always have direct access to your attorney.
Understanding your perspective helps us work on your behalf. From consult to resolution, we will keep you informed, listen to your concerns and questions, and advocate for the best possible results. We believe every client deserves a fair chance, and we’ll walk with you every step of the way.
“Our commitment to workers’ rights extends beyond an administrative hearing, through the appeals process, all the way to the highest courts in the country. We have been doing this for over 40 years—with great success.”

“When tragedy hits and you need not only legal assistance, but an advocate and a loyal partner to help you through the challenges, there is no better team than Tom Clements and his staff. I will always be reminded of the care, thoroughness, and top notch legal support I received during the most challenging time of my life.”
“Amazing company!! They were extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Anytime I had a question they always got back to me in a timely manner if I hadn't gotten someone on the phone right then and there. I would highly recommend this company!! 5 stars every day of the week!!!”
“I can say without doubt that this firms sole concern is the rights, under law, of the people they represent. If you want an attorney and firm that will always speak truth to you, who will fight for what is needed for the injured, who puts the clients needs above their own paycheck, then you have found the right one.”
