Sean J. Stein profile picture

Sean J. Stein


Before attending law school, Sean Stein (he/him) began his professional career at a non-profit advocating on behalf of at-risk youth around the country. As his education and experience have advanced, so has his capacity and drive to advocate on behalf of individuals and their families navigating some of the most emotionally complex times in their lives.

Sean recognizes that families today are constantly evolving in terms of how they look and what they need, and he therefore approaches each case with an eye towards helping clients achieve the right outcome for the individual people involved. Although he strongly believes in resolution without court intervention, Sean spent years practicing commercial litigation at a top-ranked D.C. law firm, where he sharpened the tools necessary to zealously and effectively represent clients in court. In his current practice, he draws on these experiences when families are unable to resolve their differences amicably.

Sean graduated cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center, where he participated in the Appellate Litigation clinic, advocating in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on behalf of two federal prisoners. In his own practice, he has prioritized pro bono work on behalf of vulnerable members in his community, most recently representing an elderly D.C. tenant in her constructive eviction suit against her former landlord.
