Sean McIlveenSean McIlveen is a founding Partner of the McIlveen Family Law Firm. Sean is passionate about family law. He committed to helping families immediately after graduating law school and never turned back. Sean's clients will tell you that he fights for his clients both in and out of the courtroom.

Hear from Sean McIlveen in his own words about who he is and why he decided to become a family law attorney: 

I genuinely care about my clients. I believe in telling my clients the truth. I feel strongly that educating my clients about the law and making sure my clients understand all of their options is the key to their success in court.

I grew up in Gastonia, N.C. and graduated from UNC-Charlotte with a B.A. degree. I attended law school at both the University of Houston Law Center and Wake Forest University School of Law. I graduated from the with my J.D. from University of Houston.

I am also the author of two books on child custody and I am often asked to speak at events. I am a member of the North Carolina Bar Association and the Gaston County Bar Association and Cabarrus County Bar Association. I am also a Certified Mediator for family financial matters and have been conducting mediations for more than a decade. I frequently mediate cases for attorneys in the greater Mecklenburg and Gaston County areas.

I have practiced family law in the Mecklenburg County area for over 20 years. I have focused my practice exclusively on issues that affect families and all family law issues including child support, child custody, alimony, grandparents’ rights, equitable distribution, mediation, wills and adoption.

When I am not in the courtroom, I spend my time working on cars, building custom furniture and remodeling. The care that I put into the furniture that I build and my way of representing clients is evidence of my passion for doing things the right way.

When I am not battling in the courtroom or up to my elbows in grease or sawdust, I enjoy spending quality time with my children and my wife, Angela.
