Ilonka Alward has proven herself to be a wise level-headed woman. Her knowledge of the law was overwhelming to me. She has and ease about litgation, as if she invented it. There are so many "standard" jokes about attorneys and I have seen some that fit that image. Illonka Alward has proven with her work that she stands far above the word attorney. As a doctor I see "standard of care" in medicine. Those working in the legal field have seen "standard of care" there as well. I am here to say that I never want to settle for "standard of care" in any situation. If you want excellent care legally this is where you need to be. Ilonka Alward has a passion for truth and justice. I call her our "super hero". I hope the Charlotte Mecklenburg court system will make changes that will respect the law and our rights. There has to be a start somewhere and I firmly believe this attorney will show our court system what they have left behind. She is the meaning of "prepared". Thank you from our family.

I can not even begin to express my appreciation for Sean McIlveen and the entire staff at McIlveen Family Law Firm! Throughout the past 17 months, Sean has not only been an amazing attorney, but also a friend. Being a victim of domestic violence, I will never forget the support and words of encouragement that I received from the entire staff at the firm and how much it meant to me during such a difficult period in my life. I really appreciated the continual communication with Sean, as well as his paralegal and other staff members, as well as their thoughtfulness. I would highly recommend Sean and Angela to anyone who is a facing a divorce, child custody issues, equitable distribution, etc... I am very pleased with the results I received during my case, and I continually recommend McIlveen Family Law Firm to all of my friends and family. Jennifer Fredell
I couldn't be more happy with my decision to work with McIlveen Family Law Firm. I came from a large corporation and had my hesitations when deciding to take my career path to a locally owned and operated business. I was pleasantly surprised when I began down this career path. The environment is not what you would expect out of a building full of lawyers. I expected a lot of big egos and cold shoulders. I found the exact opposite. I found a team of employees that were eager and willing to help me learn the business to ensure I was successful. I found attorneys that are humble and have their own unique personalities. Best of all, I found people who are passionate about what they do and chose their career paths so they can make a difference in the lives of the people that live in their community. I couldn't be happier.
I never imaged being in a position where I feel like I've lost control of my life. I'm going through an extremely frustrating separation. Ilonka has been a blessing. She has put my situation in perspective for me and has helped me on many occasions that seemed impossible. I would refer anyone I know or meet in a similar situation as mine to Ilonka for many reasons. She is reliably accessible, sincere and extremely crafty in her profession. I'm convinced that most attorneys could not have made me feel as protected and at ease. For me, I admire her approach and style. Ilonka has been most effective and a positive influence in my life. Thank you! Best regards, Kevin Ollis
I have had the pleasure to work with Ilonka Aylward, and I recommend her firm highly. She is an articulate and skillful litigator who has the ability to be either collaborative or ferocious as the situation requires. She was extremely sensitive to the emotional issues of the client. Even when she was successfully playing hard-ball with the other side, she comported herself with dignity and professionalism. I was impressed that even the judge commented on how well-articulated her motion was. While the cost for her services is in the top echelon of divorce attorneys in Charlotte, her performance and results more than justify the expense.
Though no one wants to find himself in need of an attorney, Ilonka is a credit to the profession. To watch her work is to witness mastery. Her superlative drive and empathy exceed any expectation. Moreover, her ability to apply precisely the correct proportion of carrot and stick is almost eerie. I sincerely feel as if I made a new friend, which is comforting considering the nature of her specialty. Finally, Dr. Aylward is on a very short list of the more intelligent people I’ve ever known, and I know a bunch of smart people.
If you need a divorce lawyer that is both professional and pitbull, Ilonka is who you need. My ex made every step as difficult as he possibly could, but Ilonka managed him well with his attempts "represent himself". Her strategy and well preparedness worked in my favor in court, and I came away with a better than expected outcome. Thank you.
What an outstanding lawyer. She knew how to handle my case as a true professional. She was very prompt with emails, as I am out of State. I highly recommend this truly exceptional attorney. Thank you Aylward Law!
She was very helpful in helping me understand where I stood in my case. I would highly recommend her!
