Leadership Team

This is your TrialDrone Leadership Team.

Sean MacDonald

President and CEO

The founder of Trial Drone Inc., Sean MacDonald, has been a trial lawyer for more than fifteen years. Ten years prior he was a private investigator working for trial lawyers. Sean has twenty-five years of experience gathering evidence that maximizes the chances of success at trial.

In 2001 he opened his own practice handling various corporate commercial, personal injury and other civil and criminal litigation trial matters.

Sean used his talents as well to work pro bono cases on wrongful convictions and has to date been successful in litigating the exoneration of approximately 73 years of wrongful incarceration.

Sean is the recipient of the Young Justice Professional Award from the International Society for the Reform of Criminal Law.

As an experienced and successful Trial Lawyer Sean knows that Trial Lawyers all have one thing in common. “Litigators attempt to re-create a single historical event or events in front of judge or jury or both. To do this, we need the facts. But gathering these facts after the event is a challenge even a disadvantage because often times evidence has gone cold and remains uncovered. That is until now”.
