San Antonio Criminal Defense Attorney
San Antonio criminal defense lawyer Sean Simpson was born and raised in Bridgeport, Texas where his father and uncle have a civil law practice. He attended Texas State University where he was active in the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity and remains active as an alumnus. In 2009, Sean graduated from Texas State University with honors, where he received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management from the McCoy School of Business. After graduating Sean immediately went to work as a legal clerk for The Law Offices of Jamie Balagia, P.C. in our San Antonio office. He spent his first year with the firm working full-time assisting in the preparation and defense of criminal cases, as well as serving in various behind the scene roles. By working closely with several attorneys in every step of the criminal defense process he was able to gain more than enough exposure in the field of criminal defense to know that is where his passion lies. In 2010, he began law school at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio while continuing to serve as a clerk for Jamie Balagia and the other associate attorneys in our firm. While attending law school Sean was accepted into the Phi Delta Phi international legal honor society and also successfully participated, in various capacities, in the school’s moot court and mock trial competitions. In May 2013, Sean received a Juris Doctorate from St. Mary’s University School of Law and sat for the July Bar Exam to become a licensed attorney in Texas. Since becoming an attorney Sean has attended several DWI specific seminars and has become certified to administer Standardized Field Sobriety Test from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Sean is also a member of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association. If you have any questions regarding a criminal matter please do not hesitate to contact him or one of our offices.
