Knowledgable Helpful Tax Attorney
I contacted Joe via phone and he was extremely informative, knowledgable and helpful. I would recommend hiring Mr. Callahan. At this time I have not engaged his services yet and am considering my options. Thank You Joe for your time and help.

Cordial, reassuring
I personally consulted with Joe recently to discuss a nagging worry of mine -- and he set me at ease. I appreciated his candor, insight, and willingness to discuss the issue and would consult and/or hire him again in the future if necessary.

Excellent!
I was devastated by a tax bill I received from the IRS, which I neither expected nor understood. I called Joe Callahan. I could not be more grateful for the time and quality of advice he afforded me. I highly recommend him.

Outstanding Legal Advice
I called Joseph for a quick consultation regarding a situation related to back taxes. He was very accessible, responsive and was able to get to the heart of my question in a short time after which he provided me with a clear response. I’d highly recommend him.

So thankful!
Joe responded to my online inquiry in less than 24 hours and was able to advise me over the phone. Which is pretty huge when you're stressing about an issue with the IRS. He didn't waste my time or my money. Hopefully with his advice I will be able to deal with the IRS mano a mano and resolve my issue.

Like a brother from another mother
If you want it straight and simple, no rainbows and fluff , this is your guy! He will not take a penny from you if he doesn’t believe he can met your goals but will still sit and offer advise because he cares. Its hard to find an honest person today who cares for a relationship today let alone a lawyer, hes worth the call, no pressure conversations balls always in your court kind of guy. “Gothem sleeps when hes on duty.”

Consultation; Would Definitly Hire if Needed.
I called Mr. Callahan to speak to him about the current tax guidelines on cryptocurrencies. He understood my situation, and was very knowledgeable about the law. With all the information out there, he was quickly able to confirm quite a bit about what was going on, and how it all relates to tax law and the current tax guidelines. His knowledge on this subject matter was enough to give me a very good idea on how to proceed. Even though this was just a consultation, if I were to ever need representation, I would definitely hire Mr. Joseph Callahan. He was quick, knowledgeable, transparent, and honest right at the beginning.
