I have found a great attorney!
My recent legal process was painless and successfully resolved because of Mr. Cahill's services. As a first-timer or newbie, court was intimidating, and it was frustrating dealing with the baggage that came with the charges from a recent traffic violation. Upon consultation, Mr. Cahill was very disarming and able to explain the legal process so that it was very understandable. Court day turned out to be a great day. It was easy and fixed. The results of his service exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend Chris Cahill to help you, whenever you are in need of legal services. Hiring a legal professional was a smart decision for me; It helped manage the chaos, worry and fret that came with personal, legal problems. He is an excellent professional, and has now added to my list of annual Christmas cookies.

Response from Christopher Cahill June 21, 2018
Every case is a team effort and you did everything just right - so thank YOU. Whenever anyone is arrested or charged with a crime (even just a traffic ticket) they are immediately thrown into a large and unfamiliar system. One of the best things I can do as an attorney is to explain the system and help map out the various options and paths that a case can take. You had reasonable and fair goals, so we made a plan to achieve those goals and we followed through with it. And thank you very much for the kind review! Best, Chris PS - I'm looking forward to the Christmas cookies :)

Exceptional service, absolutely recommended
With my case, from the start I was quite oblivious as to what I would have to deal with. But Mr. Cahill immediately broke down everything I would need to do, and everything that would come of my situation. Not only that, but he offers exceptional payment plans and is very understanding of financial situations. After payin a down flat fee (instead of making me pay for hourly service like most), he never failed to give his all for my case. He was quick to respond anytime I needed him, and had an answer for every question. He negotiated well in court and got me out of my situation far better than I could have imagined. In general, Mr. Cahill handled my case as professional as possible and was as helpful as it gets. Not only that but he’s a very polite and caring. He cares about your case and genuinely wants to make sure you get out of it as well as possible. Would absolutely recommend you chose him as your lawyer.

The best DUI lawyer in Atlanta!
Chris is so responsive and helpful. He truly cares about his clients and goes above and beyond to make sure he gets you the best results possible. He is very professional, knowledgable and trustworthy. I called him on very short notice and he immediately got to work on my case. I was extremely stressed over the DUI charge but Chris helped ease my anxiety by providing excellent advice and representation. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.

Response from Christopher Cahill November 16, 2017
Thank you for the excellent review! I treat my cases as a team effort so I'm sure you were a fantastic client. I do my absolute best to keep good communication and plan each case in accordance with my client's goals. I know from experience that being the subject of any legal trouble is extremely stressful so I always try to relieve that anxiety through a thorough discussion of the case - I find most of the stress is caused by the 'great unknowns' of the legal process so I try to make the process as predictable as possible. I am very glad to have helped you. Yours, Chris

Mr Cahill
He was able to conducted a thorough investigation and negotiations with the prosecutor, filed legal arguments in support of a dismissal, and convinced the prosecutor that his case was good. He was confident and was willing to work with me set up a payment plan.

Professional, Personal, and Ever-Ready
I found Mr. Cahill to be Professional, Personal, and Ever-Ready. He was quick to answer my calls and questions. He was very realistic about all options that could be taken for my case. He worked very hard to get me the best result I could get. He had a very personal touch to how he approached my case. I felt that he was just as invested in the case as I was, which brought a feeling of ease to a tense situation. Even when the case had been closed he was still a willing and great resource to help me with what came next, which I had not seen with other attorneys. I did not feel like a paycheck for him. He was friendly and knowledgable resource. I have and would continue to recommend him to anyone I know that needs a lawyer.

Unknown Attorney | Feb 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have collaborated on two cases with Mr. Cahill. The first was a client of mine, and it turned out she knew Mr. Cahill. The client inquired, and I agreed to let Mr. Cahill assist. I didn't expect much legal assistance from Mr. Cahill because he is a younger lawyer. However, Mr. Cahill proved to be very well-versed in DUI law. He proved that he "gets it." He provided substantial assistance to help this client achieve a good result. The second client was a person that could not afford my fee. I wanted that client to have an excellent lawyer regardless of her financial status, and I referred her to Mr. Cahill. I agreed to review Mr. Cahill's work for the client and assist Mr. Cahill in finding defenses for her. Once Mr. Cahill received the client's arrest video, he sent it to me along with his written plan to defend the case. He was spot on. There was nothing further I could add to the the defense plan. Mr. Cahill ultimately convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the DUI."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 02
