While I was not able to hire her, Attorney McCall was very responsive to my questions, and following our correspondence over a couple of days I found I trusted her knowledge and expertise.

Christine McCall is of the rare kind. Wow I wished I needed her because I would request her services and represent me. However, she was honest and very informative. I did not require her services but her answers were very helpful. It's ashame there aren't more attorneys like her.
I want to write more about how helpful she is but this review will almost sound fake so I'll keep it short and to the point. She is awesome :-)

Ms. McCall is very professional and helped me a lot with her post. She really took time out of her busy schedule to help me and I really appreciate that. I would recommend her to my family and friends!

A few months ago, I posted an inquiry on this site for legal help on sensitive legal issues I have been facing. I went to other attorneys in person where I got little or no help and really got no way with the legal consultation, other than "Good luck with that!" Well, Attorney McCall, even though she is not in my jurisdiction, responded very professionally and accurately to a general issue posted. It takes skill to analyze and provide a client with an accurate picture and objective view of the legal situation. Other attorneys' responses were not as compassionate as Attorney McCall's response. Compassion is needed in the legal profession if you are a private attorney, especially since there are many clients whose lives are affected in many ways by others and the only relief is legal relief. Compassion is one of the values I believe in and Attorney McCall has it. This is not to say she cannot be an aggressive and tough attorney for her clients. The beauty of her skills is that she is a compassionate attorney with a very big roar or bite. Unlike some attorneys who bark may be bigger than their bite, her bark and bite are big. I fight for justice and I can tell she does too. Attorneys with integrity are difficult to find. When you find one, keep the attorney. Get Attorney McCall for your legal needs, if she can help you, and keep her.

Christine McCall answered a question that I had posted in great detail and it was very informative. It amazed me the effort she placed in just answering my question.
Very genuine attorney.

As a San Diego plumbing contractor nothing beats your reputation. It can mean the difference between life and death of a business. Christine helped insure my reputation within my community by writing one of those letters to a major internet site for reviews of business services. A bad review that had defamation all over it was posted for the world to see! I cringed everytime I logged on to the site. Christine didn't accept no the first time when they refused to get involved and remove the post so she kicked it up a knotch. Christine definately has major talents because the post was removed today!!
Thank you for the steller performance!!

I came across Ms. McCall as I was researching certain legal circumstances and how they may impact the review and approval of my California CPA Licensure Application. Of all the attorney posts on this and other sites, I continuously came across posts from Ms. McCall and each and every one of her posts were authoritative, concise, direct, well-developed, thorough, non-threatening, honest, and sincere.
My issues were complicated and troublesome (for me). I sent a couple of emails to Ms. McCall. I was not expecting such timely responsiveness. She was extremely responsive and she immediately recognized my issues and concerns and put me at ease, while providing a pathway for dealing with the issues during our initial consultation. During our consultation, it was abundantly clear that Ms. McCall, and her partner, had reviewed all of the information that I had provided in advance and was perfectly prepared for our meeting. She identified the key issues that needed to be dealt with, while putting to rest issues and concerns that were irrelevant to my case. The manner in which she conducted the meeting, including handling of sensitive issues, gave me immediate ease and confidence. She was patient and thorough, leaving no question, issue, or concern left unresolved. Ms. McCall is an extraordinary professional and human being. Most of us have a fear of attorneys, and/or a fear of dealing with the issues that require an attorney, I assure you that there is NO REASON to fear Ms. McCall. You should RUN as quickly as you can to her because she is AMAZING, Knowledgeable, and will give you tremendously useful direction and guidance. You can easily see her credentials here and other sources, but what isnt nearly as obvious in print, is the superb handling and attention that you will receive from Ms. McCall as she sinks her teeth into whatever your situation is. You will never feel rushed, nor will you feel that the service is incomplete. I will recommend Ms. Mcall and her colleagues to anyone in need, and I, myself, will certainly be a long time client of Ms. Mcall.

I should first state that I did not hire Ms. McCall. I am currently seeking admission into the CA bar, and I'm having some trouble with my moral character application because of a prior conviction. I posted the facts about my situation to avvo.com. Ms. McCall provided, by far, the most complete and honest answer to my question, quickly.
Not only did she post answer to my question, as well as respond to my comments, she spoke with me on the phone in regard to my situation. I gave her some more details on my case, and, as it turned out, she felt as if I didn't need her services because my case was not as serious as she expected. She was very honest and forthcoming about that.
Even though she felt as if I didn't need to retain her, Ms. McCall gave me advice on how to proceed with my case on my own. She knew exactly the plan of action I should take, gave me solid advice, and really gave me a great picture of what I should expect as I navigate my way through this process.
It was such a breath of fresh air to get such honest advice from Ms. McCall. She was willing to take time out of her day to talk to me even though she told me I did not need to retain her. I can't express how grateful I am for her kindness, knowledge, and professionalism.
Although I'm thankful I'm not in a situation in which I need to retain her, she would undoubtedly be the person I would recommend to anyone in a situation similar to mine.
Thank you, Christine.

I recently found Ms. McCall's information by googling a specific topic that she wrote about and contacted her with a question. She was extremely responsive and provided me with some clear general insight without violating any professional codes of conduct since I am currently represented by an attorney.
What I can tell you is that this woman has a tremendous amount of experience--38 years of practicing law not only as a lawyer but also she was a former administrative judge. It's evident that this woman is a consummate professional and a great lawyer given her vast legal knowledge! If her field of legal expertise works for your type of case then I would highly consider using her as your attorney based on my interaction with her. I can't stress enough how knowledgable she is! At the end of the day judges need to decide cases on law so it's best to work with work with someone who "knows the law" if you want a successful outcome.

When I first posted my questions, I was a bit discouraged and thinking that there might not be lawyers that actually answered my questions. Christine was great, responsive, direct and really help me create some answers for the questions I answered. I would really recommend her!

Thank you so much, Christine for your response to my situation. You cut right to the heart of what I needed to know. I will go on line and see if I can ascertain whether the information you provided is specific to the retailer with whom I am involved. Although you did not respond to other issues mentioned in my letter, specifically as to if I might be able to negotiate with the store and also lose the ban to enter their collective properties, overall, I am very pleased with the assistance you extended to me. I would welcome any further comments that you might have. Very respectfully and gratefully yours,..An L.A. Mom

When our son was charged with a 23140, it felt like the end of the world. Christine McCall's professional expertise and wise counsel helped us regain perspective.
Ms. McCall is extremely knowledgeable, and she presented us with an option for a disposition (deferred entry of judgment) that would avoid a criminal record for our son. Herself a parent, she offered us empathy and generosity of spirit in addition to the benefit of her extensive experience. Ms. McCall is one of the best!

Thank you for the very fast response to my question. Even though there is not much I can do about the issue in the legal realm, there was encouragement to keep fighting for who I as a person and a mother. Once again thank you very much!!!

Thank you Christine for responding to my question. You gave me the incentive to push myself into appealing an unemployment benefits denial decision. I am moving forward and looking for an attorney. You are right, I have nothing to loose.
Christine will tell you like it is. She is very straight forward and to the point. Her credentials speak for themselves!!

Knowledgeable, aggressive, creative and nice. She explained everything, gave me advice and the reasons for her recommendations. Kept me informed about events on my case on a real time basis -- several times a week when necessary. Returned my calls and e-mails on the same day. Was very persuasive and effective in pre-hearing negotiations, which were not successful, and was outstanding in presenting my evidence and arguing my case at the fair hearing.
