McIlveen Family Law Firm Client Reviews:

Recommend to anyone!

Initially, I was nervous, and I had a lot of questions. Angela answered all of my questions which allayed my anxiety. I value her calmness and professionalism most of all. I’m completely satisfied with my result, and recommend anyone who needs legal services.


Very helpful law firm!

The McIlveen Law Firm was very helpful to me. Angela made everything very easy and smooth. Whenever you are dealing with something like this in your life, you need a person that’s helpful and understanding and she was all of the above.


I was always kept up to date!

I came to Sean at the scariest time in my life. He educated me about my rights and how everything should be handled. Even if I felt uncertain about certain situations and always ended up exactly where I needed to be. There’s no other attorney I would trust.
