Mr. Gavin has been an associate attorney with Bowman & Associates since 2007. He concentrates his practice in employment law, focusing on employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Gavin worked for the City of Boston’s Living Wage Division, where he was responsible for redrafting the City’s Living Wage Regulations.
In addition to handling employment law, Mr. Gavin is a civil litigator with a portfolio of state and Federal cases that includes matters of construction law, landlord/tenant law, real estate law, and contract law. He received his B.A. in English and Political Science from the University of Southern California and earned his J.D. from Boston University School of Law. Happily married, Mrs. Gavin is a marriage and family therapist.
When he was ten years old, Mr. Gavin’s parents told him that sometimes veterinarians had to put animals to sleep. It was at that point that he decided to become a lawyer instead of a vet. He still cares deeply for animals, and is a practicing vegetarian.
“I used their services for my unlawful termination suite and was very pleased with Sean Gavins work. I would recommend him and his team to anyone in need of employment legal advice in the Sacramento areas.” – Bryan C. on Yelp.com
Mr. Gavin’s professional goal is never to forget that he represents people, not their lawsuits. He wants his clients to be able to live their lives without the constant worry and anxiety that often accompany legal problems. In short, he wants to fight on his clients’ behalf so they can focus on their other priorities.
Mr. Gavin grew up in New York with his two working parents and a twin brother. His father shared with him at an early age the value of doing good while also doing well. As a result, he and his father often find themselves reflecting on the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap than his neighbor, though he build his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door.”
