  • William C. Head

    Linda Callahan is dynamite in a small package. Her clients know that Linda will always look for ways to win their DUI cases, and will fight all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary. Linda's natural ability to relate to people helps her in maintaining great client relations and in selecting juroes for trial. Her dedication to the practice has led to her authoring the Washington edition of my book, The DUI Book. Her text is the most readable of all my state co-authors, and a great asset for her clients.

  • Robert Perez

    There are very few lawyers in this state who have had the kind of impact on the legal landscape that Linda has earned. She is relentless, brilliant and a paragon of virtue who stands tall among her peers. I can't recommend anyone more highly than Linda when it comes to handling DUI and related cases. She sets a new bar for what is already an active and stellar DUI Defense community, and I heartily endorse her work.
