Sean is an experienced litigator who understands that every case deserves particularized attention and detail. After achieving his Bachelor of Arts in Politics at The Catholic University of America, Sean graduated cum laude from The Columbus School of Law.
During his time in law school, Sean focused on honing his litigation skills. He was recognized as one of six finalists at the Columbus School of Law’s 1L intraschool appellate advocacy competition and also recognized as a finalist at the school’s 1L intraschool trial team competition. Sean went on to compete on the National Mock Trial Team. While still in law school, Sean joined the Prince George‘s County State’s Attorney’s Office (MD) Criminal Prosecution Clinic, where he was able to try misdemeanor-level cases in front of a judge with a supervising attorney. Sean also worked as an intern with the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office (NJ), where he again appeared in court on a regular basis with a supervising attorney.
After graduating from Law School, Sean served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ann R. Bartlett, J.S.C., Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Family Part, in Warren County. While serving as a law clerk, Sean served as a trained mediator and assisted the Judge in different Family Part cases, conducting legal research and drafting statements of reasons and legal memoranda to assist the Judge in making decisions in all areas of family law, including equitable distribution, child custody, child visitation and support, college contribution, domestic violence and juvenile justice matters.
From there, Sean joined the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office (NJ). Sean was assigned to the General Investigations Unit’s “Trial Team” where he regularly handled large caseloads quickly and efficiently. During his time at the Prosecutor’s Office, Sean handled a wide range of criminal cases, including both possession and distribution of drugs, burglary, robbery, sexual assault, domestic violence, shoplifting, and firearms offenses. Sean successfully litigated various motions and is well versed in New Jersey’s new “Bail Reform” laws. A staunch advocate for Victim’s Rights, Sean attended the Finding Words/Child First NJ training, where he was trained in how to handle forensically-sound child interviews.
While Sean always hopes to resolve cases quickly and expeditiously outside of the courts to his client’s benefit, he recognizes that is not always possible. Therefore, when necessary, his trial experience ensures that his client’s needs will be appropriately represented in court.
Sean is admitted to practice in the State of New Jersey and the State of New York. He is a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association and the Morris County Bar Association and serves as a volunteer attorney for the Battered Women’s Legal Advocacy Project.
Outside of his law career, Sean enjoys spending time with his family, as well as volunteering his time as the coach of his alma mater, Union Catholic High School’s, Debate Team.
