If you reading this review, chances are, you or someone you care about is facing disciplinary action against their professional license and needs the best possible representation. This was my situation four months ago. I felt desperate and scared after being arrested for a misdemeanor. I systematically interviewed all the top attorneys in town. I spoke with a dozen administrative law attorneys, keeping careful notes of their recommendations, fees and attitudes. Ms. McCall’s amazing reviews are hard to miss. She provided me with a complimentary hour-long consultation, and just as it is written: she is responsive, professional, and intelligent. She listened carefully to me and paid close attention to my concerns. I am a nurse and I was mortified to find out that the conviction I was facing could possibly ruin my career. I immediately trusted in Christine McCall and her intelligence, impeccable reputation in the administrative law community, and because of her caring no-nonsense attitude. She laid out the events before me, uncannily predicting the licensing boards every move with the accuracy of a legal oracle. Her fees are very reasonable considering that her approach to license law defense actually saved me a large sum of money over the other lawyers, who only wanted to sell me a one-size-fits-none package. I made the right choice with Christine by my side. Two things on which to never economize: your surgeon and your licensing board defense attorney. You may live to regret either. Make no mistake, licensing board will blindly seek to suspend or revoke your professional license. You are just a target for their bloated bureaucratic process. You will suffer the harshest penalties allowed by law should you have incompetent under-representation. Ms. McCall’s response to my emails were nearly instantaneous. She kept me informed at every stage and answered my questions thoroughly - even while traveling overseas. Who provides that type of service these days? Most importantly, my case was favorable resolved and everything I have worked so hard to attain has been preserved. My prayers were answered; I thank my Lord Jesus for his mercy. I highly recommend Christine McCall and her License Advocates Law Group!

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.
