Bio

Robin R. McLean earned a Bachelor of Science, cum laude, from Georgia State University in 1992. She earned a Juris Doctor from Georgia State University College of Law in 1995.

Robin is admitted to practice in both South Carolina and Georgia. In addition, she is admitted in the United States District Court District of South Carolina and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Judicial Circuit.

Prior to forming McCutchen McLean & VanSyckel, LLC, Robin worked in a small firm in Lexington County, serving local and state-wide clients, in addition to serving clients with matters in Georgia. During that time, she litigated numerous civil and family court cases to conclusion. In addition to her family court cases before a trial judge, many of her other civil cases involved jury trials. In  2011, she opened her own law firm, continuing to serve clients in both South Carolina and Georgia with various legal matters. Robin enjoyed balancing her challenging work life with raising her son.

Robin has practiced law in many areas including domestic and family law (separation, divorce, child custody, visitation and child support, spousal support, property division, adult and minor names changes), employment and discrimination matters, workers’ compensation, estate planning, probate, and personal injury matters. Although she continues to practice in these areas, the majority of her current cases involve family law.

Moreover, Robin has been certified by the South Carolina Supreme Court as a mediator in Family and Probate Law.

Volunteering her time is also a passion. Robin has given free seminars in the area of family law on behalf of the State Bar of South Carolina; she is a constant volunteer for the South Carolina Bar Ask-a-Lawyer drive featured on WLTX where she answers legal questions for callers; she has volunteered her time as an attorney coach for the mock trial team at River Bluff High School; she has judged mock trial competitions at the high school and college levels; and she enjoys serving on several South Carolina Bar committees and sub-committees.

Robin has attended Christian Life Assembly Church for over twenty years. Her deep love for the Lord, the law, and the people she serves are the driving forces behind her decades of legal practice.  She is eager to assist her clients in vigorous, impassioned, and knowledgeable representation.
