About Haley

Learn Haley’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    I am a former prosecutor who has practiced criminal law for 17.5 years as an Assistant District Attorney, handling thousands of felony cases, and trying over 100 jury trials, including First Degree Capital Murder, First Degree Rape, Felony Assault, Kidnapping, Armed Robbery, Child Rape, Drug Trafficking, and other serious felony crimes. I have also handled thousands of misdemeanor cases such as DWI/DUI, underage alcohol violations, and domestic assault. I am now representing those accused.

    26 years, 105 cases

  2. Litigation
    Although I have practiced criminal litigation exclusively as a prosecutor, I am very familiar with general trial procedures and rules because many are shared between civil and criminal. I am comfortable in a courtroom and am extremely at ease speaking with jurors.

    26 years, 105 cases

Sean Boone is a native of Alamance County, graduating in 1986 from Western Alamance High School in Elon, NC. He graduated with honors from N.C.

Upon graduation, Mr. Boone taught Freshman English and Composition at N.C. State and worked as an Assistant Registrar at the North Carolina Museum of History until enrolling in the University of North Carolina School of Law in 1994. While in law school, Mr. Boone began volunteering as an intern in the Alamance County District Attorneys' Office from his second year in school until graduation in 1997. After graduation, he was hired as an Assistant District Attorney in Alamance County, working his way up to becoming the First Assistant. For over 18 years total, Sean Boone has handled thousands of criminal cases, both felony and misdemeanor, and has tried the most serious cases under the law. Mr. Boone became a partner at the firm of Walker, Bullard & Boone in the summer of 2015, and he now puts his experience to work for those individuals who are accused of crimes, those who need general litigation services, and those who need assistance in those difficult times when will and probate matters are necessary. Mr. Boone is an active member of First Presbyterian Church in Burlington and is a Past Master at the Burlington Masonic Lodge, Bula #409.  In his free time he enjoys studying about the American Revolution and spending time with his family.

Above & Beyond
If you're thinking twice about hiring another attorney, don't waste your time. Sean is amazing, he is detail oriented, approachable, trustworthy & most importantly, responsive to his clients. He has a unique way of being both aggressive and compassionate. He was able to get my misdemeanor charge dismissed. He was thorough, looked at all possible options & outcomes and discussed the quickest way for us to resolve my case that day. His work ethic is tireless, and he gets the job done quickly, efficiently and with great results. In the future should I get a traffic ticket, without hesitation Sean will be the person I call.
