Biography

Wrix McIlvaine is an experienced advocate that has battled for justice in trial and appellate courts throughout Georgia for nearly two decades. He is a specialist in criminal defense and regularly takes on difficult and high profile criminal matters in State and Federal Courts. He is recognized as a Georgia Super Lawyer and is regularly named as one of the Top 100 trial lawyers in America and as a Top Ten Criminal Defense Attorney by the American Association of Attorney Advocates.

Wrix is a zealous defender of citizen rights and civil liberties under the United States Constitution and is one of the few attorneys in Southeast Georgia that takes on civil rights litigation under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. His trial and appellate practice also focuses on representing those who have been seriously injured by medical malpractice, police misconduct, governmental abuse and corporate malfeasance.

As a strong believer in the right to counsel for indigent and underprivileged communities, he is a former supervising trial attorney for the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council and a longstanding member of the Criminal Justice Act panel for the Southern District of Georgia. He also has served as a conflict panel attorney in counties throughout southeast Georgia for over a decade and has volunteered for Georgia Legal Services and Georgia Lawyers for the Arts.

Wrix is a 2002 graduate of the University of Delaware (journalism), earned his Juris Doctor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law (cum laude) 2005, and is a graduate of the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center earning his Master of Laws degree from the University of Augsburg and George Washington University in 2006.

He is a member of the Brunswick Exchange Club, Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church and serves as a Committee Member and Den Leader in scouting. He also serves the City of Brunswick as Judge Pro Tem of Municipal Court.
