From the first moment we contacted John Callahan we felt comfortable in our decision of retaining him for our case. His skill was apparent as he guided us along. His concern and understanding of our situation made it easy to talk to him. We received the outcome we had hoped for so long and John made that possible for us. He is honest and trustworthy. We give him the highest recommendation.

After having 2 DUI's within 9 months back in 1998, I was able to finally be in a position to hire Mr. Callahan as my lawyer. He fell nothing short of professionalism, knowledge, preparation, courtesy, and respect. I would and will (if I am in the unfortunate position of knowing anyone who gets a DUI) recommend Mr. Callahan hands down, without a seconds thought. Thank you again to John and his staff!

I was involved in a car accident where another vehicle jumped on my lane and I could not avoid it. The police issued me a citation since it looked that I was at fault, it was the first time for me in a court and I did not now how to handle it.
I was put in contact with John Callahan and he managed my case seamlessly to a full dismissal, I couldn't ask for a better outcome.

I recommend John Callahan if you have a legal problem. He handled mine so well that all of my anxiety was gone. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and caring, and totally handled the problem so I did not have to worry about any court proceedings. My problem was a minor legal one, but after he did such a good job, I would trust him again even if I had a major legal issue.

Sometimes one makes poor choices such as driving under influence. When you don't know which way to go, a good lawyer not only reassures you but also comes through in the court. I was impressed by how thorough John is in assisting his clients. I hope I never have to avail his services (for obvious reasons including having learned my lesson), but if I or any of my friends do, he is the one I would highly recommend.

I personally recommend Mr Callahan to any one who needs help getting full reinstatement of driver's license due to a DUI conviction.I had my Virginia license cancelled due to a DUI conviction in Illinois 25 years ago.Mr Callahan represented me in a professional manner and was dedicated to clearing my record in Illinois.On April 5,2012 my record was cleared in Illinois and I was granted full reinstatement.I am thankful for Mr Callahan's hard work and dedication in helping me win my case.On April 16,2012 I got my Virginia driver's license back.I can say from experience that Mr Callahan would be an excellent attorney to have represent you.

John was there when we needed him. He made our traffic court appearance quick and easy for me and my teenage son. Mr. Callahan discussed our case with the prosecutor at the start of the session, and before we new it, the case was closed without issue and we were able to leave the courtroom before the rest of the cases were heard. Thanks John for putting us at ease in this very stressful situation.

After I was issued a DUI, I was facing a possible suspension of my drivers license. Knowing I needed an attorney I called John for legal consultation. While in court John was able to convince the State to get my suspension rescinded and removed from my record. I was relieved when the suspension was rescinded, because my job is dependent on having a drivers license. Overall I am very grateful for the legal representation John has provided

Although I wouldn't wish a DUI upon anyone, this man is the one to call if ever you or a family member needs excellent legal representation. At a difficult time John Callahan was reassuring, knowledgeable, explained the process and our options. I observed in court that other attorneys' clients were routinely pleading guilty. John Callahan made every effort to minimize charges and adverse impacts and was successful in our case. We are very pleased with the outcome. Mr. Callahan is an excellent attorney and I highly recommend him.

I was referred to John by a friend who had used him before and was totally satisfied with his services. From the start, he handled my case like a true professional, swiftly and the outcome he was able to achieve, well surpassed my expectations.
