Sean's Personal Info
Sean grew up in Mesa, Arizona, where he graduated from Mesa High School. He graduated from Arizona State University in 1988. As he considered which law school to attend, he was drawn back to Wyoming, perhaps by his Durrant/Peterson family roots in western Wyoming. Nonetheless, after visiting the beautiful law school campus at the University of Wyoming, he was hooked!
After graduating from law school in 1992, Sean and his family chose to stay in Wyoming, and settled in Buffalo, which is nestled at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains. Sean often looks up at those beautiful lofty peaks and wonders when time will permit him to be fishing, hunting or hiking in the mountains. Don’t tell anyone, but if Sean’s office phone goes to voice-mail, he may be doing just that...!
