This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I’m usually not at a loss for words and can easily express myself but my husband and I recently had lawyer Calhoun review a possible malpractice case for us when no one else would accept it or take the time to tell us WHY they weren’t accepting it as a case. Not only did lawyer Calhoun take the time to review the records but he took a great deal of time, made an appointment to speak with us at great length WHY he was unable to move forward. Again, he went through the records during the conference call and pointed out legitimate reasons why or why not this would be a successful case. Reasoning and talking to us in a caring way and offering support for his reasoning. One would be hard pressed to find all these positive qualities in any one person because we have never, ever met an attorney so compassionate, professional and thorough and return phone calls or respond in a timely manner! We have dealt with several attorneys over the years, but Lawyer Calhoun is a PACKAGE deal that is CAPABLE and CARING!!

Review of Colin as my Attorney
I retained Colin to represent me in an injury case. He showed me that he was not only highly qualified and helpful, but a genuinely kind and caring person. I highly recommend him and will most definitely use him again if needed.

No need to look any further, here’s your lawyer.
I recommend Mr Calhoun with flying colors. Our first case was dropped so when they refiled and we found ourselves sued again, Mr Calhoun reached out to us to make sure that we knew that he would still be out lawyer. He did an excellent job and made sure we were always kept informed on what was going on and made sure we knew what to do. There’s not to many people that I’ve dealt with that would have taken the time he took with us. He’s extremely patient and takes the time to listen to make sure you get what you deserve. We are very grateful and will most definitely use him again!!

Could not have asked for better.
Mr. Calhoun is very patient and thorough when explaining legal matters regardless of their complexity and ensured I understood what was happening with my case. He and his staff did a wonderful job of keeping me informed every step of the way. Mr. Calhoun was able to reach a fair settlement without going to court. This had been my wish and instruction when I hired him. I can say without reservation he is a wonderful attorney and a compassionate human being. I am deeply grateful for his help in settling my case. It is my hope I am never in a position to have to hire an attorney again; but if I am, I will certainly contact Colin Calhoun.

He is the best!
Mr. Calhoun did a deep and thorough investigation into my case. He was able to successfully present the facts of my case and legal theories at trial, and the verdict was rendered in my favor! He is an excellent lawyer who is very conscientious about his work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice. In my case, this was no different in spite of my limited financial resources. You can see that he works with a love of God in his mind, and I am sure God will bless him for all of his excellent work. If I know of anyone who needs a lawyer, I will always recommend Mr. Calhoun!

Thorough and Reliable.
Mr. Calhoun was very thorough. He always had our best interest. He was an advisor as well as carrying forth our wishes. He was able to paint a picture of every scenario so we could make the most informed decisions. He was able to handle every single detail from beginning to the end of this process. I would highly recommend him.

Honest, respectful, dedicated practice.
In 2015, Mr. Calhoun came into my clinic where I worked as a nurse. 2 days prior I had been in a motor vehicle accident where I did not have insurance. I found myself without a vehicle. My clinic was over an hour away and I was also a mother of two small children and a baby. One of the nurses I worked with immediately came to me and said there is a lawyer in that room. I have told him about your accident, go in there and talk to him. I hesitated due to not having any money or means to compensate him for his work. I took a deep breath and went into the room. I introduced myself and began telling him every detail in which I remembered. I then stopped myself and apologized for I knew that there is a introductory fee in which during the first meeting the lawyer will typically listen and give you their interpretation of what they think they can do for you and charge you a decent fee for taking up their time. He looked at me and said no it is ok, please I have all the time you need. Let me hear your story. I then spent 45 minutes in that room with him laughing, crying, expressing my fears, and reiterating many times that I did not have any means to pay him for anything up front. His compassion was impressive, his empathy was incredible. I was hesitant to believe that a lawyer could posses these two qualities. From that very moment he gave me his card and told me to fax him the accident report that day and he would begin working on my case. His deligent work was very impressive as the insurance company in which he encountered was not cooperative. Month after month he would call, send an email, or text to update me on his progress with this case. In every greeting he continued to empathize and support my every question/idea. As we reached a year together, we also found a light at the end of this lengthy tunnel. He was able to get my family and I compensation for my property, medical bills, ambulance bills, even loans that had to be taken out to pay to get my car out of impoundment. Mr.Calhoun is not a lawyer of typical status. His compassion for others, dedication to his practice, and heart are ones to be desired. I have had the opportunity to work with 3 different lawyers in my lifetime and this man believes in justice, but he also believes in honesty. You do not find that in many who practice law. He was the first and only I have found. I am honored to share this with all and any whom chose to read this. This man is more than a lawyer. He is a blessing in disguise.

Excellent divorce attorney!

Professional, Intelligent, Diligent, Compassionate, LISTENS and UNDERSTANDS!
Colin B. Calhoun is absolutely the best! He has my highest possible recommendation. Colin will take the time to listen to you and determine the very best, and cost-effective plan of action for representing you. He is a highly intelligent and accomplished attorney. He is diligent in his duties and will keep you apprised of the status of your case as it works its way through the system. I needed an attorney who could understand a variety of aspects of a complicated and unique case. Colin took the time to make certain he understood my circumstances. From there his advice was spot on the mark at every point. One of his sayings is that he "...treats your money as if it were his own." At several junctures I could have taken steps that would have cost me more money for attorney fees. Colin was able to assist me, advise me to wait and see the system work, and not have me paying funds to him just to expedite the process. His judgement is sound. His understanding of the law and the applications of the law are at the highest possible level. I simply do not know what I would have done in my particular circumstance had I not retained the services of Colin B. Calhoun. If you would like to contact me personally and find out specifics of my dealings with Colin, I will be happy to speak with you. If you are looking for the very best legal representation possible and at the same time make certain your money is working for you, then you should contact Colin for a consultation. Again, he comes with my highest possible recommendation. God bless!

Mr. Calhoun took the case was very professional, he took his time with me explaining step by step what he was doing I never was in the dark about nothing. I appreciate the job Mr. Calhoun did for me. Thank you for being professional and getting the job done. Well done!

final divorce contract
I had a conflict with my ex wife 2yrs after my divorce. Mr Calhoun helped me to resolve it, even though he wasn't my divorce attorney. He also made sure that it won't be challenged in the future. He is very caring and personable, one of the greatest qualities that's hard to find amongst many attorneys.

Proven – Passionate – Personable
Mr. Calhoun provided our company counsel on multiple cases that needed legal remedy. Colin worked hard for our company in not only producing the best outcome for our firm but surprisingly displayed a rarity from our experience in dealing with other attorneys in being conscientious and concerned about the financial commitment most lawsuits and court cases necessitate to undertake. He earned our trust as an upstanding fellow who not only had our best interest at heart but performed admirably when processing our cases. He is one of those individuals you know will succeed and be an individual you will read about as being successful in his chosen field based on his work ethic and track record. Anyone looking for an honest, proven attorney to advise, counsel or provide legal defense should give Mr. Colin Calhoun a call. He is certainly someone you want on your side.
