Sean Musgrove had a fifteen-year career at a Fortune 500 company. Dissatisfied with his career, Sean Musgrove started law school while working full-time with a young family at home. After graduating from McGeorge School of Law and passing the California State Bar Exam, Sean Musgrove opened an office on his own.
His early career gave him simultaneous experience in civil litigation, family law/divorce, and criminal law cases. Sean has worked tirelessly to make sure no matter what area of law he was dealing with, he was providing the very best representation.
As a criminal defense lawyer, Sean Musgrove learned how to argue in Court, giving him thousands of hours of Court time in a few short years. From cases that dealt with “benign” charges of being drunk in public to representing those serving life sentences, Sean Musgrove learned how to represent Clients when it meant the most and the stakes were the highest.
As a family law/divorce lawyer, Sean Musgrove worked with individuals who were in need of representation. He represented clients who had a wide variety of family law related issues, including, but not limited to, getting “divorced” so they could remarry, child custody, child move-away cases, guardianship cases, child support cases, spousal and alimony cases, obtaining domestic violence orders, fighting domestic violence orders, and dividing marital property.
As a civil litigation attorney, Sean Musgrove learned how a case is prosecuted from beginning to end. He learned when to settle a case, when not to settle a case, how to litigate in the law and motion arena, and how to prepare for trial.
All three areas, although unique, together gave Sean Musgrove his skills at litigating. His career at the Fortune 500 company also gave him skills in both customer service and running an organized business.
In 2013, Sean Musgrove stopped representing criminals in parole cases because he wanted a change of direction.
He began focusing primarily on Family Law and started being selective with the civil cases that he took. Today, if Sean takes a civil litigation case, it means that he is committed to maximizing the value to his clients and providing the proper service to his clients.
