Great things can be accomplished, when it doesn't matter who gets the credit.

Sean Petersen is a paralegal with our firm.  His work focuses on research, analysis, discovery, drafting motions and pleadings and support at trial. He attended Boston University, and California State University of Fresno and San Joaquin College of Law.

Originally, Sean decided to become a paralegal to determine if he enjoyed the legal field enough to go to law school. After twenty-five years, the jury is still out! Sean takes great pride in working with clients to achieve their goals in their litigation. He is President of the Fresno County Legal Professionals Association and was a speaker at the 2019 Conference of California Legal Professionals Incorporated.

Cooking and golf are Sean’s escape from the legal grind, and he also enjoys hiking with his daughters, reading and hitting the beach.
