ABOUT OUR FIRM
Sean Blume came to Detroit from Washington D.C. in 1995 to attend the University of Detroit Mercy where
he received his BA in History in 1999, graduating cum laude.
Sean attended Wayne State University Law School from 1999 to 2002. During his time at Wayne Law Sean
was extremely active with the Student Board of Governors, serving on the Baord all three years. At
graduation Sean received the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Service to the Law School from then Dean
Joan Mahoney. He was also honored by the American Bar Association for his work by being named the
Midwest Regional Student Bar Association President of the Year. Sean continues his dedication to Wayne
State Law School today where he serves as Presidentr of the Wayne State University Law Alumni
Association, an organization he has been a member of since 2002. Upon graduation Sean joined the
administration of Wayne State University Law School as a Development Officer.
MERGING SOCIAL SERVICE AND THE PRACTICE OF LAW
In 2003 Sean became a volunteer, and then a Site Coordinator, for the Detroit Jim Casey Youth
Opportunities Initiative (The Initiative). The local Initiative was sponsored by a national foundation
dedicated to assisting young adults who have been involved with the foster care system transition to
independence. Sean dedicated 2 years to making this group a national model for success in working with
young adults as well as the administration of the State of Michigan. The Detroit Initiative led the country in
meeting the needs of transitional foster youth.
Taking the Jim Casey work to the next level, in 2005, Sean accepted the position as Project Facilitator for
the Foster Youth Demonstration Project. This grant was a collaboration of two different U.S. Governmental
agencies for the purpose of assisting transitioning young adults as they tried to squire the skills that they
were not getting from the system. Again Sean assisted the program in being a national model for working
with transitional foster youth.
DETROIT CITY COUNCIL
Sean left the transitional foster youth arena in 2006 in order to continue developing his legal skills and to
work a little closer with the City of Detroit. That year he started work as a Staff Attorney and Policy Analyst
for Detroit City Councilwoman Sheila M. Cockrel. The work was extremely rewarding and he gained
invaluable legal skills as well as valuable insight into the running and management of the City of Detroit.
OPENING THE LAW OFFICES
In 2007 Sean decided to take the representation of children in foster care to the next level and started his
own law practice in order to represent the children in court. Since that time Sean has been contracted to
work part-time with the Third Judicial Circuit – Juvenile Division as appointed counsel for the children in
foster care and the children facing delinquency charges. Since starting his practice Sean has also handled
various family law matters including Custody, Divorce, Judgment Modification, as well as many criminal law
issues. In 2009 Sean established an office in downtown Mt. Clemens, in the Femminineo Law Building.
MEDIATION: THE FUTURE OF LAW
Realizing that the future of the practice of law is in empowering parties to make their own decisions, Sean
became a State of Michigan Certified Mediator in 2007. Since that time he has used the skills he learned to
help countless parties reach agreements through a process where they have control of the process. This
allows them to create the outcome rather than have an outcome imposed on them. Sean continues to
employ these skills in assisting every one of his clients, regardless of age.
