Through the years he has worked for me on several closings and given sound advice concerning my business dealings and established my Limited Liability Corporation status. He comes from an old established family in the Gaston County area and has honored his family name with stellar work ethics over the years. He is the greatest!!Charlie GholsonDallas, NC

This a humble man who really tries to put everyone's best interest at heart, he is hard working, dedicated to his job and if u hire him as and attorney he will not steer u wrong, he has not let us down once since we have dealt with him, I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who has a case going on and if he can't help u I am pretty sure he will refer u 2 someone who can because that is just the kind of man he is, This man is in his office most days by 7am and in court by 830 am for hearings, but he still takes his time to have u come into his office and meet with him and he listens to what u have to say without the rude and snobbiness offish attitude that most lawyers have, he is not into drama and making things ugly n a courtroom either because he is a christian man, but he will go all the way to bat for u in a way that makes more sense than making it more a more escalated and heated atmosphere, he tries to defuse and mediate things between parties for best interest in his cases, he does family law and criminal law, n before I ever met him I heard some really nice things about him, but never in a million yrs thought I would run into him like I did and that he would be working on a case for me as well, but when God brings you to it he brings u through it! and when I prayed he brought me to a person who I felt great with retaining! Thanks to him for all his hard work dedication and humbleness to others, that kinda attitude takes u so far in life with plp and favor..........

McIlveen Family Law Firm
I couldn't be more happy with my decision to work with McIlveen Family Law Firm. I came from a large corporation and had my hesitations when deciding to take my career path to a locally owned and operated business. I was pleasantly surprised when I began down this career path. The environment is not what you would expect out of a building full of lawyers. I expected a lot of big egos and cold shoulders. I found the exact opposite. I found a team of employees that were eager and willing to help me learn the business to ensure I was successful. I found attorneys that are humble and have their own unique personalities. Best of all, I found people who are passionate about what they do and chose their career paths so they can make a difference in the lives of the people that live in their community. I couldn't be happier.

McIlveen Family Law Firm
I can not even begin to express my appreciation for Sean McIlveen and the entire staff at McIlveen Family Law Firm! Throughout the past 17 months, Sean has not only been an amazing attorney, but also a friend. Being a victim of domestic violence, I will never forget the support and words of encouragement that I received from the entire staff at the firm and how much it meant to me during such a difficult period in my life. I really appreciated the continual communication with Sean, as well as his paralegal and other staff members, as well as their thoughtfulness. I would highly recommend Sean and Angela to anyone who is a facing a divorce, child custody issues, equitable distribution, etc... I am very pleased with the results I received during my case, and I continually recommend McIlveen Family Law Firm to all of my friends and family. Jennifer Fredell

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
