I had a fairly serious legal issue but was fortunate to be put in touch
with Mr. Callahan. He is highly skilled, extremely competent and very
attentive. I am what you would consider a high maintenance client who
needed to be intimately involved in my case. Mr. Callahan always
returned my calls, was proactive and committed to helping in win my
case. He exudes extreme confidence and was always willing to go the
extra mile. He even visited me in jail late at night, how many other
attorneys would do that. Never underestimate the power of a good
attorney. The state knows who the good attorneys are and they are far
less likely to pursue a marginal case if they know who they are up
against. For me, my felony case was dropped, I considered it a miracle.
Don't risk your future, go with the best you will be happy you did.

I have had some experience with criminal defense attorneys in the past and I wish that I had found Attorney Callahan sooner. Me and my roommate spend the day drinking and watching football. We decided to go out and my roommate drove. We got pulled over, the cops arrested my roommate and searched me, there were enough drugs in the car that I was arrested and charged with a class x felony. I was looking for criminal defense attorneys in Chicago and I found Mr. Callahan online. I got in touch with him really quickly. I told him what happened and it seemed like Mr. Callahan started to handle it while we were still on the phone. He explained what could happen to me because of these charges but I felt like he was on top of it. I think all of his experience as an attorney working criminal defense in Chicago helped settle my nerves. I mean, he and his staff had answers to pretty much all of my questions. My case went to trial but Mr. Callahan really showed up and performed. I was found not guilty! I know it wasn't magic, he was just good. I needed serious help and this guy did it.

I have nothing but great things to say about Robert Callahan and his defense law firm. This is the best experience I have ever had with any
defense attorney, he was very professional and knows everything about this business. If you're thinking about using him, please don't hesitate to
call because you won't regret it.

Well respected, hardworking and honest are a few of the words I would use to describe Robert Callahan. He is a criminal defense attorney in Chicago that actually cares about his clients and the outcome of their case. Criminal Defense Attorneys at Callahan and Associates treated me with respect and was extremely responsive to my requests. I highly recommend Robert Callahan to anyone in "criminal trouble" with the law. http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl=&ie=UTF8&q=chicago+defense+lawyer&fb=1&gl=us&hq=defense+lawyer&hnear=Chicago,+IL&cid=10405630393995354548&z=14

Mr Callahan advised me on how to proceed immediately upon contact.
matter was resolved exactly as promised.
I was surprised that he won my case based on the technicality of Supreme Court ruling 504.
I will use Mr. Callahan if i need to.

I have had legal representation before, however, I have never had a lawyer as concerned and personal as Callahan. He allways returned my calls, and he made sure that I was aware of what was going on with my case. Not only did he review the case he also invited me to his office to see if I could be of any help. Before the motion hearing that we had he made me aware of the consequences that I faced if things didn't go well, that I had a good chance of beating the case and why. I was most impressed with his enthusiasm when he said before the hearing " let me calm down cause I'm kind of hyper right now". He had a fire inside of him that made me feel that what ever the result of this case was he did his best.

I have used Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer Mr. Callahan for myself and family 3 times. He can answer all your criminal legal questions in plain English. He even handles his own phone calls most of the time, so he is easy to get a hold of. I had the Chicago Police lie against me and accuse me of drug possession. Mr. Callahan presented my criminal case to a judge who threw out the case at the first court appearance. Robert Callahan is a truly professional criminal lawyer who is good at what he does and not too expensive.

My name is Marc A. Scott. Recently I was arrested and charged with a felony amount of marijauna. Unfortunatly i'm also on parole and without a doubt I thought i was sure to be returning to prison. Had it not been for a well seasoned, well respected counselor with connections, my situation would have been a very dark outcome. Again, i'd like to thank you for your expertise... In short, my case was resolved and the judge granted me an immediate release with time served. Again, thank you Robert J.Callahan & Associates.
