Your District Attorney

District Attorney Sean Boone was born and raised in Alamance County. He graduated from Western Alamance High School in 1986 and continued his education at N.C. State University, earning a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in English. In 1997 Sean received his Juris Doctorate from the UNC School of Law. While working towards his law degree, Sean interned in the Alamance County District Attorney’s Office, and upon graduation accepted a position in the office. For the next 18 years, Sean served Alamance County as an Assistant District Attorney, prosecuting over 100 jury trials and securing convictions against our community’s most violent offenders.
In 2015, Sean left the District Attorney’s Office and became a partner in the firm of Walker, Bullard & Boone, P.A. While working in private practice, Sean expanded his practice into areas of civil and family law, but concentrated primarily in the area of criminal litigation; in 2016, he earned the distinction of becoming a Board Certified Specialist in N.C. Criminal Law. Sean was elected District Attorney in 2018 and began serving in that capacity in January 2019.

Sean lives in Southern Alamance County with his wife, Dodie, his stepson, Liam, and their rescue Black Lab, Liberty (“Bertie”). The Boone family attends St. Mark’s Church in Burlington, and volunteers at a local nursing & rehabilitation facility regularly. Believing that service extends beyond the courthouse, Sean also delivers meals for Alamance County Meals on Wheels.  Sean is a Past Master of Bula Lodge 409, AF & AM.  In his spare time, Sean enjoys reading books on American History, especially books about George Washington.
