Sean lived all over the country before settling in Lake Charles with his family when he was twelve years old. He attended Our Lady Queen of Heaven School, Barbe High School, and McNeese State University before earning a law degree from Louisiana State University Law Center.

After passing the bar exam, Sean was employed by Hunter, Hunter & Sonnier in Lake Charles, where he was introduced to the practices of Family Law and Personal Injury Law. Sean became passionate about both of these areas of law because they both provide opportunities to genuinely help people in need.
