This is a wonderful law firm. Allie went above and beyond to help with my needs!!!!
Initially, I was very nervous about choosing an attorney. However, my first (no commitment) meeting with a McIlveen attorney in July 2015 was pretty satisfactory. Last week we had our mediation which wrapped up all the loose ends and I think the final deal was fair to both parties. My Attorney, Anna Carpenter did an excellent job by remembering all the details, having all documents ready on her laptop and being very competent in her work. So, thanks you Anna.
Chelsea Chapman is an amazing lady. She is very respectful and knowledgable as well as her staff. We retained her for Child Custody. She answered all of our questions plus more. Always there for you when she is needed. Custody is never an easy thing to go through Chelsea and her staff guided us in the right direction and helped us win our case. Thank you, Chelsea.
My husband and I had the honor of meeting Chelsea today at our consultation we had. Upon meeting her, my husband said, “I had a gut feeling, she was the right person to help us.” Chelsea allowed us both to talk about the difficult situation between my husband’s ex and her stopping us from our visitation and other violations of the order we have. Chelsea was very confident, resourceful and straight forward. It did not take us long to retain her. She appears to be brilliant and we feel confident that she will see our girls get the best outcome possible to help them be safe, and in an environment, they can flourish. I would HIGHLY recommend her.
Kimberly was especially knowledgeable about our case, but just as important to us, she truly seemed to be genuinely sympathetic and moved by our situation. Some people may find that not a positive in an Attorney or Paralegal, we totally disagree. How can someone represent you if they can’t even relate to your situation. We would have no problem recommending this Law Firm to anyone who needs a Family related Lawyer.
I just want to take this opportunity to tell you what exceptional service I received from Kathryn Walsh. Her professionalism, attention to detail and compassion during the divorce process made a very unpleasant time in my life more bearable. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking highly competent legal counsel. Consider your firm a cut above the rest and truly lucky to have an attorney of Kathryn’s caliber on your staff
Allie was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation.
Professional service. I felt that they listened to my concerns and answered with wisdom.
I was recently represented by Anna Gray Carpenter of the McIlveen Family Law Firm. Divorce is typically a stressful time for all involved and mine was certainly no exception. Ms. Carpenter not only demonstrated a thorough understanding of NC divorce law statues but my judge’s inclinations in other cases similar to mine. Although I have dealt with contract attorneys for a number of years, divorce law was foreign to me and throughout she was communicative and professional, always explaining to me the various scenarios which would transpire before engaging the opposing attorney, attending mediation or going to court. This allowed me the peace of mind knowing what my outcome would likely be beforehand which assisted in reducing the inevitable stress. Therefore, I would enthusiastically recommend Ms. Carpenter if one finds themselves in the unfortunate circumstance of the breakup of the family and the inevitable pain that is associated with divorce.
I would recommend Cassandra to everyone/anyone! She and her assistant made a difficult horrible event in my life very easy. There was so much I had to worry about going through a divorce with kids but my legal representation wasn’t one of them. She always looked out for my best interests and handled everything — I only had to sign a few things!! If you want a trustworthy lawyer that goes above and beyond look no further.
I absolutely loved my attorney she was personable and all around just wonderful. I had no doubts at all going into my hearing and of course I came out on top. Great firm!!
I called with a situation going on that needed immediate attention. The staff was very very helpful and got me in the next day. I met with David Simmons who was very professional and listened to my situation patiently. He offered three possible solutions with possible outcomes. He advised me based on what my financial restraints were. He spent over an hour with me. The fees were very reasonable. He also let me know if there were any further questions that I could call him. I did call the next day and he was easy to reach. I greatly appreciated their help and advice and prompt response. I would certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone seeking legal council. They have followed up with me a few times since to be sure everything was going good. I am truly impressed with their customer service and professionalism. Great experience.
I was recommended to Ms. Chappell to handle my separation/divorce, property settlement and child custody issues. Due to some disagreements during my separation, she advised me of some options I would not have known I had, ones that benefited me in the long run. She walked me through everything from separation to property separation tactics to the final divorce. I always felt confident in the courtroom and at scheduled appointments because I truly felt she was looking for things that suited my best interest. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know.
I don’t know where to start!!! As a father, every dream is to raise his son and make them a better man than the father is. Unfortunately, that dream was dimmed before the birth of my son. Within the first month of my son’s life, I had to look into obtaining an attorney. After consulting with two other law firms McIlveen was the ONLY firm that gave assurance that they would go full throttle in my defense. In 5 month my appointed paralegal and attorney left the firm and that was a testament to the quality of work that McIlveen represents. Unfortunately, my appointed attorney left 4 days before my hearing. Chelsea and Sean did not hesitate to step in and they did not miss a beat in my case. I could have not been more pleased with their work ethic and determination to fight in my defense. The demeanor that I wanted to display in this case was second nature to them and they put on a world renown performance in the courtroom. They had a determination to prove that mothers are not the law and that fathers do deserve to be fathers. If I could demand an encore I would. Not only did they get the results I desired but the entire firm from attorneys, paralegals, secretaries all reached out within 30mins to an hour of the decision by the judge. That craziest part is we are not done. I can not thank or praise the McIlveen Law Firm for boulder they lifted off my shoulders in the case for my 5-month-old son. If you are in need of the proper representation for custody, child support, or anything involving family law DO NOT HESITATE TO HIRE MCILVEEN FAMILY LAW FIRM. Other family law firm will not be bulldogs on the courtroom. Thanks again Sean/ Chelsea/ entire staff
We found Attorney Kathryn Walsh to be meticulous down to the smallest detail in preparing us for our court testimony. She explained court room processes clearly and concisely based on her years of experience. We found her advice to be relevant and timely to our case. Her guidance enabled our testimony to have a direct impact on a favorable outcome for our case
Despite being at a difficult time in my life, I can look back at my experience with McIlveen Family Law Firm as a positive one. Their staff knew me by name by the first visit, and I was always made to feel not just a client, but a part of the team. Sometimes my feelings were not always serving MY best interests, and Ms Walsh always listened and offered advice. She never discounted my feelings, and always worked towards MY goals and wants.
I would 100% retain their services again were I to need them.
We hired Kathryn Walsh to clear up a family issue. From the very first phone call, Kathryn Walsh was the best attorney we’d ever worked with. She is professional, kind, informative, honest, organized, and very attentive. She made us feel very comfortable from the beginning. Talking with her even during the first call, lowered the overwhelming amount of pressure we were feeling. Throughout the process, every time we requested a phone call, she was there. Every time we emailed her, she responded. She always went the extra mile, to work diligently on behalf of our family. During a very stressful time, we kept recognizing that we had made the best choice by hiring Kathryn Walsh from the Mcllveen Family Law Firm. Not only is she the ultimate professional, her fees are also very realistic (compared to so many other attorneys in her area). We are so very grateful to Kathryn Walsh. She cleared up the issue we were facing, and helped us to grow tremendously from the experience. Thank You Kathryn. Our family is forever grateful to you.
Cassandra was wonderful from the time I met her until the last day I needed her. She was kind and understanding of my needs and knew exactly how to handle my situation. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. This firm is not only diligent but also caring about their clients. Cassandra is firm and thorough with her work which made all the difference for me.
This 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. Thanks for all your help.
Sean has always made time for me and returned my phone calls or emails in a timely manner. He kept me up to date on what was going on with my case. If I had questions, he never made me feel like they were silly or something I should already know. He would also give me the worst scenario and the best. Therefore, I was never blind sided either way. He is an excellent attorney. Thanks for all your help.
I used Sean while in with his former partner. When he moved I went with Sean. Sean makes you a priority. Several things that made Sean a perfect fit for me are, he told me he always goes to court to win or settle. He gets things done in a timely fashion. The best thing Sean said to me and has proven it is – This is the one person you will have to give your complete support through thick and thin. I’ll be here for you until the end.
Going through a divorce is not, the best thing that happens in life, but the girls really eased a lot of pain and grief from my shoulders. I must say “Thanks for a job well done”.
I came to the McIlveen Family Law Firm at one of the worst times in my life during a separation and divorce. Sean was so very kind to me and walked me through each step I had to take as though I was his only client. Sean gave me more than just legal advice, he gave me back my self-respect and my life. He always had my best interest first. Because of his hard work and knowledge, I have my life back and it’s better than ever because Sean made sure I received Justice. I will never be able to THANK him enough.
Divorce is so difficult, and having to walk this through alone would have made it even more challenging. However, from the time Sean and Angela accepted my case I knew I was in capable hands. While they have worked as a team, they also approach the situation with their own strengths. This has made working with them all the better. I can honestly say that I would not have anyone else to handle my legal matters.
