    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.

    Sean is a very knowledgeable and professional lawyer in GA. He helped me with taking care of a speeding violation while being a NC resident. He explained my best case scenario aka how we/he should approach the violation. The best part, he was able to make it happen as his suggested action. Saved me a headache in potential rise in premiums. HIGHLY recommend anyone needing help in GA to Sean McIlhinney! Thanks Sean!

    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.

    I recently got a speeding ticket and contacted Sean to find out how he could assist. At the first hearing, the Trooper/Judge were not agreeable to a non reportable disposition. Sean continued the case and was able to get it dismissed at the second hearing. Sean saved me the hassle of going to court and was able to get me the outcome that I wanted. I highly recommend Sean!

    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.

    My daughter had a traffic accident in Atlanta and does not live in Georgia. She was issued a citation at the scene of the accident. Being out of state and under 21 I hired Sean to help her with the citation and court appearance. Sean was very easy to communicate with and took care of the details surrounding the court date and responses to the courts. Even better, Sean was able to get my daughters citation dismissed. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and would recommend Sean for anyone needing an attorney in the Atlanta area.

    Sean handled my recent traffic tickets (2) with the City Of Atlanta. Most of our communication was via email, which was perfect, and he kept me well informed throughout the process. He was confident he could get dismissal of my tickets to avoid points on my drivers license/increase in insurance, which he did. I had to pay fines of course, and take a driver safety course (but was able to take an AARP class rather than Defensive Driving class; and I'm not AARP age!), but in the end I'm happy. I would definitely recommend Sean to others that find themselves in a traffic ticket situation.

    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.
    • I hired Sean 1-6 months ago.
    • Sean handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I had contacted 3 attorneys regarding a speeding ticket I received in Atlanta. Sean was responsive and got my ticket dismissed as he said he would. First of all, Atlanta and the rest of Georgia have become idiots as to fines, I was driving 83mph on I 75 where it reduced to 55mph, no construction, and a motorcycle cop was sitting about 1000' after the reduction sign. I was shocked to find that my ticket was $710 which is ridiculous,. I would advise every one to boycott GA they do not deserve our business. . Costs were $60 less than the fine! Hire Him!

    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.
    • I hired Sean 1-6 months ago.
    • Sean handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I am an engineering student and were recently charged with a DUI. This event was a total nightmare when it happened, as I was in preparation to start a master’s degree overseas in less than two months. The very thought of the consequences – the possibility that the case could potentially preclude my academic and career ambitions – initially caused me panic and depression. After doing research, consulting friends, and becoming aware of the situation, I decided to retain the counsel of Mr. Sean McIlhinney. I must say that I admire Sean for the professional he is. The case was resolved justly, with an outcome that was favorable for me and one which Sean had foreseen from the very beginning of his work with me. Throughout the process, before and after court, all of my questions were answered promptly and all of my concerns were discussed in an open and honest manner. Sean did not make a single compromise with my defense, did an excellent job in preparing my case for court, and treated me with EVERY degree of respect a client could possibly ask for! If you are in a situation involving traffic violations, DUI, drug violations, and personal injuries, I can assure you that Sean McIlhinney’s work on your case will be the very best you can hope for. I can also assure you that Sean is very personable and can be both an attorney and a friend throughout the process. After all the fear and worries associated with this case – thanks to the luck of having Sean defend me – I walked out of the courtroom today ready to be back on track with building my future exactly one month after getting charged. You can’t beat that!

  9. Truly one of Atlanta's top Attorneys (and more importantly a great person)!

    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.
    • I hired Sean 1-3 years ago.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I have used Sean as my personal and business attorney for years. He has handled everything from registering our business, provided advice on real estate and financial matters as well as handled two major court cases for the organization. I deal with many attorneys with our clients etc. and must say that none of them have the knowledge, passion, sincerity AND results that Sean is able to deliver. I have also referred close to 10 friends to Sean and they all thank me after he handles their legal matters. I can't say enough good things about one of the top attorneys in the Atlanta area.

  10. Good attorney when you are in trouble....

    • I recommend Sean McIlhinney.
    • I hired Sean 6-12 months ago.
    • Sean handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    When you are arrested for DUI, there is tremendous uncertainty surrounding your license, driving restrictions, fines, possible jail-time, community-service, DUI classes, etc... Don't have sleepless nights. Sean will guide you with confidence when you are overloaded with stress. Impactful details are his game: Mouth-alcohol levels, probable cause for the officer, rules/regulations the law must follow: these are all things I had never considered. Sean always called me back, always responded to emails and, (ultimately), assisted in getting my case reduced to reckless-driving from DUI. Nice!!!!......that's what I was looking for.......
