    I can't thank Linda and her staff enough for getting me through this scary situation unscathed - all I had to do was comply and behave myself. Her knowledge of the system and her legal relationships made it possible to get me out of my DUI completely unscathed after just a 2 year probation period. NO license suspension, NO SR-22 insurance, and NO blow and go. I know that my case may have been a rarity in Washington State, but she was able to make it happen. Thank you Callahan Law!

    Nice day. On my way to work. Top down. Music up. Got an important meeting. Had been stuck behind a stupid Prius. Now running a little late. A whopping 5 mph over the speed limit. Lights go on. Pull over and NEVER got nervous. Writes me my ticket. Don't care. Know I'm going to call Callahan and that ticket is going goodbye. Opened my email account. Ticket dismissed. I rarely get a speeding ticket, but I've never paid one because of Callahan. Used them twice now. Best. Ever. Thank You!

    I have received three dui's and two of them have been handled by the Callahan Law office. They're legal advice as well as affordable prices are beyond the satisfactory level. I have received my license back after retaining Jacey Liu (Callahan Law office), that would not have happened otherwise. She was as knowledgeable as she was helpful to my situation, also very pleasant to speak with.
    I am very thankful for the help that was given, and would retain them over all others I have dealt with in the past.

  • Physical Control DUI

    Recently I was arrested for physical control DUI. For the next few days I was reeling. I needed help. I drive for a living. Losing my license meant losing my job. Losing my job meant losing my medical insurance for my family. In my case this could simply not happen.
    I was recommended to Callahan Law and I called Linda. From our very first phone conversation I could tell Linda's expert advice came from years of experience. That in itself was calming, like I was in good hands. Then the legal strategies unfolded during the next few court dates and the impact of this DUI was dramatically minimized. I kept my job. Linda's team was right beside me through this entire affair. Every question I had was welcome and was answered promptly and professionally. I was courteously reminded of upcoming dates and deadlines by Linda's staff.
    Being charged with a DUI can be overwhelming but step by step Callahan Law kept my informed, kept me updated and kept me calm. Thank you, Linda, Stephen, and your entire firm.

    Given a very unique set of circumstances, I needed to hire a DUI lawyer. I talked to a couple of lawyers but also researched more online. I discovered Linda Callahan and decided to contact her firm. I was immediately impressed by their genuine, personal concern for my situation. I discussed my situation and completed the paperwork they had asked for. They were extremely informative, provided thorough info, and deciding to hire Ms. Callahan just felt right. She and her team provided excellent advice, amazing and personal service during the entire process. Ms. Callahan has an amazing amount of knowledge concerning DUI law, procedural details that law enforcement are required to follow during field sobriety evaluation and arrest, etc. Due to details involved in my case, she and her team did an amazing amount of research into case law that would aid in my defense. Ms. Callahan provided excellent, personal attention to the details of my case, treating me with compassion and respect throughout the entire process. As we worked through the court procedures, she was always very careful, thoughtful and informative. In the end, we could not get the prosecutor to agree to a resolution in the matter, so we decided it would be best to go to trial. Again, Ms. Callahan was very knowledgeable about the process and remained very concerned about my personal comfort with everything and the decisions on how to proceed were always left up to me. In the end, we were successful in defending my case before a jury and I was found not guilty to the charge of DUI. I would most definitely recommend Linda and her team to anyone, do not hesitate to call her firm if you find yourself in need of an excellent DUI defense team!

    I contacted Callahan Law after I received my first DUI, I also talked with over 8 different lawyers but Linda was the only one who seemed to actually care about my situation and wanted to help me whether I chose her firm or not. After deciding to use Callahan Law I met with one of their lawyers who was extremely helpful. Since this was my first DUI charge I had no idea what to expect but Stephen (the lawyer I met with) went through the whole process of what I should expect. Any time I would have a question I would call or text and they would get back to me immediately. Through this very stressful time they made it very easy and simple taking care of everything that they could. And no matter who I talked to they all were always very sincere and kind. I ended up getting my DUI reduced to a negligent driving. I would highly recommend this firm, they really do go above and beyond for their clients.

    Needing an attorney is a scarey and overwhelming event in ones life... I found that the entire system urges a person into the path of least resistance... Which would not have been wise in my case. Fortunately I had the assistance and direction of professionals at Callahan Law to guide me through the following few months...

    I had questions, concerns, and fears through out the process, and with a phone call or email, I was able to get nearly immediate empathetic responces. This adequately convinced me that I had the done well choosing the right team to help me thru a very difficult time.

    The positive results of my case were never promised... All possible outcomes we clearly prepped for... My attorney was able to expedite a deal that not only reduced the conviction substantially but was able to do so at the readiness hearing weeks earlier then I had expected. Needless to say this was such a relief to me as well as to my entire family...

    I would and have Recommended Callahan Law to people in need of traffic law representation. Fairly priced and friendly compitant service... I am eternally grateful for their help.

  • Callahan Law - The BEST

    Hired attorney

    I woke up Sunday morning in a panic to find legal help to address my biggest life mistake, getting charged with a DUI the night before. I searched the internet, sent emails, and left messages. After about an hour, I received a phone call from Callahan Law (the only one to ever call back) who was able to answer my initial questions, provide guidance, and set a free consultation appointment for the upcoming week.

    After the first 30 minute meeting I knew I was in good hands. They explained the process, assigned a dedicated lawyer, and even offered a flat fee which put my mind at ease. Throughout my case, I had multiple conversations with their staff who was always responsive, willing to listen, and most importantly demonstrated expertise in their area of responsibility.

    Team Callahan went above and beyond all my expectations and restored my faith in attorneys. They did exactly as promised, were well organized, and worked together for a successful outcome. My lawyer even picked me up and drove me to the final hearing! Thank you Stephen, Linda, Chris, Jacey and Toni for a job well DONE!

  • This is a DUI mill with no personal attention

    The Callahan firm focuses exclusively on DUI's. There is some good and some bad to this - but it is my belief that this is mostly bad. I watched them very closely during the whole process with respect to my own DUI and witnessed how they churn people in and process them quickly in order to move on to the next case as as quickly as possible. In this context, it's all about efficiency and speed, which is not always in your best interests. I was represented by them for over a year and attended court at least 15 times - and only TWICE was Linda my actual attorney - otherwise it was whatever recent law graduate (usually a fresh-faced twenty something) that she happened to hire that week, most of whom quite obviously did not know how to handle themselves in a courtroom. You are much better off going with an older attorney who might be retired but takes a case now and then to supplement her/his income. That person will give you the individualized attention that you deserve. Callahan was no help to me whatsoever and simply processed me - as she does hundreds of clients each month - as quickly as possible. When you are confronted with a something as serious as a DUI, do you want to be processed as quickly as possible or do you want individual attention? Look: the DUI laws are fairly cut and dry in Washington State - what any attorney can and cannot do is fairly limited - so having a "DUI specialist" means very little for you. By contrast, it means everything to an attorney like Callahan, because she can process as many of us as possible in order to maximize her profit. That's what it's all about. Trust me: there's a lot of retired judges and other attorneys with a lot of experience in Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle who will take your case and really focus on you and your specific circumstances. Don't choose the DUI Processing Mill that is Callahan Law.

    Linda Medeiros Callahan’s response: “This is not a client review. This is obviously a lawyer who is a competitor of Callahan Law. We are not a DUI mill--far from it: we do not "churn" cases, nor do we take "100s" of DUI cases per month. If we did, we would not have almost 90 reviews -- all of them 5 star reviews. We carefully manage our caseload to give each client's case the time and effort necessary to achieve the best possible result. Our clients know they have the choice to retain Linda Callahan to appear at court hearings or pay less of a retainer to have an associate attorney appear in court with them, and they also know that Linda Callahan supervises EVERY case, including the ones in which she does not appear in court. A competitor would not know this. This is not the first time a competitor has done this shameful thing-- this review is probably from the same lawyer/competitor...”

    I recently retained Linda Callahan to represent me in a DUI case (this was my 2nd DUI in 7 years). The very first day that I contacted her office, I knew that she would be the attorney that I would retain. First, Chris (Linda’s paralegal) contacted me after office hours and talked with me for over an hour helping me get my self-esteem up after spending 3 nights in jail and being treated like a criminal. From the moment that I walked into their office for my initial consultation, they treated me with the utmost respect, educated me on the legal process, and patiently walked me through everything that I needed to do. And then there is Linda… I have to say that Linda Callahan is one of the smartest, knowledgeable, friendliest, dedicated, and compassionate people that I have ever met. Due to her experience, she has many connections in the system and she is well respected. I remember Linda walking up to the prosecutor before court in the courtroom and had asked if he would consider lowering the DUI charge a reckless driving charge. The prosecutor immediately tried to intimidate her by saying that the arresting officer is one of the most senior officers and he trains other officers on DUI arrests. She did not back down, instead she told the prosecutor that was a very good thing and she didn’t want to deal with anyone that lacked the experience. Although he did not agree with her request at this time, his demeanor immediately changed. As a result of Linda’s hard work and knowledge, she was able to my DUI charge lowered to a reckless driving charge. There are some things that you just can’t do on your own, without legal advice and I highly recommend Callahan Law!!
