    Attorney Profile

    Sean J. McIlhinney is the founder of the Norcross, Georgia-based McIlhinney Law Group. A cum laude graduate of North Carolina State University, where he majored in both political science and communications and received two bachelor degrees in 1991, he attended Georgia State University College of Law, and he was the associate editor of the Georgia State University Law Review and clerked for the Gwinnett County Juvenile Court before being awarded his Juris Doctor cum laude in 1995.

    Focusing his practice on criminal defense matters, Mr. McIlhinney represents people throughout the state. He places a significant emphasis on speeding and other traffic offenses, and he has been able to get many of the citations reduced to nonmoving violations. This benefits his clients in that they do not incur any points on their drivers' licenses and thus in most cases do not have to deal with an increase in their auto insurance premiums.

    Mr. McIlhinney also represents people who have been charged by state authorities with having committed felonies or misdemeanors. His cases have included driving under the influence of alcohol, drug possession and distribution, aggravated assault, shoplifting, and burglary. He has been successful in the courtroom by getting acquittals and dismissals, and he has also been able to get many of these charges reduced as a result of his being able to negotiate favorable plea bargain agreements with the prosecutors.

    Mr. McIlhinney’s excellent track record has not gone unnoticed by his fellow members of the bar, as evidenced by his receipt of a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, Georgia Trend magazine has included him in its annual “Legal Elite” list. Mr. McIlhinney’s professional memberships include the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
