I give John the highest recommendation. Regardless of situation - trust John to get it taken care of!

    John was able to help our son keep his drivers license after getting numerous tickets during a traffic stop. His expertise made an impact in the courtroom which led to a favorable outcome. He was extremely professional and we are grateful for his assistance.

    After much research we chose Mr. Callahan for our son's case because we knew we needed someone with an excellent track record, who would understand the unusual circumstances of the case. We felt comfortable and felt listened to. Mr Callahan is straightforward. He was very informative and very supportive. I highly recommend the only attorney you will need.

    John Callahan, is very dedicated to his line of work. He is knowledgeable, quickly responds to your concerns/questions and will keep you well informed about your case. He keeps excellent records of information, changes to cases, works toward meeting his clients goals and strives for the very best results. Mr. Callahan will identify potential problems in advance and works towards a quick resolution. I truly would not have survived through this case without the guidance and support of John. He is by far, the best attorney I have ever worked with and I highly recommend him for all criminal cases! Thank you for all that you do!!

    After 3 years of trying to get my license back and 3 failed attempts, I found John Callahan during an online search. I gave him a call and met with him. After talking for a short time I knew that he was serious about what he did and truly wanted to help me as client. He was always there to make sure I knew what was going on, what to expect, he was a good coach through the whole process. After one court appearance I was granted my permit for work. After 8 years without a license this is an absolute tremendous help to me. John was a great lawyer and a great person as well. Well worth the money to hire him. If you do what he says there's no doubt that he can help you too.

    My son got in trouble with his school and had to go to court for it. We hired John in hopes of reducing his punishment. John kept us up to date with what was happening. John was also very trustworthy and honest. If we had a question he would be quick to respond. John really helped us out big time.

    I was arrested for DUI on a Sunday morning in March of 2015. This was my first time being in trouble with the law and I did not know where to begin. I spent many hours researching attorneys online and they all seemed to be the same. I reached out to Mr. Callahan Sunday afternoon and received a phone call first thing Monday morning. John rearranged his schedule so that he could meet with me that morning. He reviewed my case and presented me with all the possible outcomes. After meeting with John I knew he was the man I wanted representing me. John was able to file the petition to rescind my summary suspension that same day and the clock began to tick in my favor. At my first court date John was able to negotiate a deal in which I was able to keep my drivers licenses. This was huge for me as my job requires me to travel often. John helped me weigh all my options and at the end of the day he obtained the results I was looking for. I had heard all the horror stories of cases taking months to resolve and people losing the freedom of driving. John came through in my time of need and I would recommend his services to anyone of my friends. I am truly grateful that John was the lawyer I chose.

    10 years after my plea, my sentence was suddenly changed by a new law. I didn't think this law applied to me so, I called the state and asked them to double check. They told me they were correct and that was it. Not satisfied, the next day I called Mike Norris. I found out that he passed, but John Callahan (who worked on my case with Mike) had taken over the practice. Amazingly he rememberd my case. I felt comfortable immediately and asked for his counsel. When we met at his office, we spoke for 5-10 min. Not hesitating, he made one phone call and had right person and the State's attention to my case. In 15 min, with one call and one fax, he proved to the State that they made a mistake (no court nessesary). His skill and experience led to a quick resolution of a potentially life-changing dispute.
