Brian D. Seaman has announced his candidacy for the office of Niagara County district attorney. Seaman served as an assistant district attorney in Niagara County from 2006-13, and prosecuted a wide variety of felony crimes, ranging from white collar financial crimes to violent crimes, including assaults, robberies, burglaries and homicides.
Prior to his service as an ADA, Seaman was a law clerk to a U.S. magistrate judge in the federal court system. Currently, he is a partner in the law firm Seaman Norris LLP and serves as municipal counsel to several Niagara County municipalities.
In announcing, Seaman said, “Being an ADA was the greatest honor of my career and I always hoped that one day I would have the opportunity to lead our excellent and professional district attorney’s office in Niagara County. As an ADA, I was able to assist in bringing significant justice to the victims of crime and their families, and use my legal skills to positively impact Niagara County communities.
“As an ADA, I earned the respect of law enforcement professionals as well as the legal community through my hard work and dedication, my ability to understand and weigh complex issues, and my willingness to prosecute a case fully, no matter the effort required. If elected, these are the same qualities I will bring to the tough and important work of the Niagara County District Attorney’s Office to ensure that those who commit crimes are brought to justice, and to keep our community safe.”
Seaman was born and raised in Niagara County and graduated from Lockport High School in 1994. He received his bachelor’s degree cum laude from the University of Notre Dame, and his law degree magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago Law School.
Seaman resides in Youngstown with his wife, Donna, and their seven children. They are active parishioners of St. Peter R.C. Church in Lewiston.
