I was targeted by the most prolific department writing tickets in GA for smartphone use Distracted Driving charges. Sean had to go to 2 Prosecutors to get the end results I was looking for, over several months. It was worth the time and expense NOT to have to go to court, and ultimately save in insurance which just got past the 3 years on a previous ticket.
Sean was referred by a close family friend. He was absolutely the best lawyer I have ever encountered. Impressive courtroom skills. Great communicator. Has what it takes to get the job done (tough) but also down to earth and easy to talk to (peace of mind). I highly recommend Sean Mcllhinney as someone you can trust, someone you can count on. Fair and reasonable fees along with top shelf skills, service and professionalism. Could not ask for a better lawyer. Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!
Sean handled my case and was successful in securing a speed reduction (for my speeding ticket) leading to a non-reportable disposition. This means that the ticket will not be reported to DMV and it will not impact driving record or insurance premiums. Yes, I did check my driving record and it has no mention of the speeding ticket anywhere! He was very easy to reach over phone and email and responded to questions in a timely manner. I was pleasantly surprised to learn how easy it was to have my case handled and resolved by him. I strongly recommend him!
Sean McIlhinney has served as my family's attorney for several years for various traffic violations. Sean has an impressive and extensive knowledge of laws, courts, and possible outcomes. Not only that, Sean McIlhinney is a genuinely nice person. He always promptly returned my calls (even on weekends) and more than adequately answered all of our questions with accuracy and simplicity.
We consider Sean our family lawyer and would recommend him above all others. He is second to none and a true asset to the legal profession!
Attorney Sean McIlhinney was a God send when my teenage son received a speeding ticket. Originally, I planned to attend court with my son and be at the mercy of the court. However, at the last minute, the morning of our scheduled afternoon court appearance I contacted Sean by phone. He assured me that he could represent my son that afternoon in court. He personally handled everything on our behalf with the court. So I never had to miss work and my son never had to miss school.
After my son attended a mandatory defensive driving course and paid a court fine, miraculously Sean was able to get the case reduced to a non reportable disposition. This is important because it means that the ticket will NOT be reported to the DMV so the speeding ticket will not impact my son's driving record or insurance premiums.
I am extremely pleased with the professional and compassionate manner in which Attorney Sean McIlhinney handled my son's case. I highly recommend him as an attorney who will provide excellent service and peace of mind when dealing with a serious traffic offense.
Sean has assisted me with several traffic tickets in Georgia and has always achieved the desired results. I strongly recommend him to others.
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!
We used Dean for a traffic ticket this year. ( 2014) he was very professional an we would
Recommend him to all of our friends an family that travel regularly through the area.
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!
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.
