John is the absolute best person I would have chosen to help me through my case. He's kind, compassionate and it's evident that he truly cares about his clients. He's not just a lawyer, but a support system who's always there to answer questions while navigating through the court processes. I was truly lucky in finding somebody as great as him to represent me.

Navigating your way on your on through the maze that is IL Sec of States rules to get your drivers license back is a very difficult process. Do not make the mistake to attempt this on your own. You need a seasoned pro like John, who knows these rules to guide you on your way back to full reinstatement. John & his team will help you get back on the road. They did for me. Thanks again John

I was convicted of two DUIs and had lost my driving privileges for several years. I had been through so much pain, and I had no one to blame for my troubles but myself. For the past several years, I had struggled with all the difficulties and problems that come with alcoholism and lost driving privileges. Fortunately, after my second DUI, I was placed on probation and had remained sober and going to AA meetings for several years. I also learned, albeit slowly, to abide by the law.
I was referred to Mr. Callahan by another attorney. From the get-go, John wasted no time getting down to business. It wasn't cheap, but he made clear all the steps we would be going through to get my license back. There would be paperwork to fill out and file to the Secretary of State. I would also have to get all the documents pertaining to my case as well as letters. Of course, I would have to keep my nose clean and stay out of trouble if I wanted to have any chance during the hearing.
Mr. Callahan's office was exceedingly diligent in getting the paperwork ready, reviewing documents, preparing me, and answering any questions I had. I was coming in from out of state, so his counsel was valuable in getting me settled in. I had never been to Joliet before, but he explained what to expect which calmed my nerves. I arrived early, got situated, and we were able to review my case some more.
I must say that going before the Secretary of State is no joke. They go through EVERYTHING. If you obviously still have issues, you would probably be found out.
Fortunately for me, after so many years of pain and work and with the help of Mr. Callahan and his office, I was approved on my first attempt and am now a licensed driver! I thank Mr. Callahan and the wonderful folks at the office for their help and consider them friends.

Hiring John Callahan was one the best and most important decisions I've ever made. I was arrested on suspicion of DUI. I reached out to several law firms and John responded quickly. He was genuine, candid, and informative. I had never been arrested and was extremely nervous of what I was about to go through. John put me at ease and talked me through the entire process. I felt immensely better after our initial consultation. John and his staff are professional and responsive. John was a calming influence at each of my court dates and took time to discuss everything in detail with me. My case went to trial. John is a brilliant trial lawyer and ran circles around the prosecution. His cross examination of the witness was impeccable. His knowledge of proper DUI arrest/field sobriety protocol was extraordinary. He was able to point out numerous errors/mistakes made by my arresting office. I received a NOT GUILTY verdict by a notoriously tough judge. I'm so thrilled to have hired John for my case and urge you to make the same choice I did - I can promise that you won't regret retaining Mr. Callahan's services.

I hired attorney John Callahan after receiving a ticket for speeding 27 miles over the posted limit which is a Class B misdeameanor in Illinois. At the first court date, the prosecutor made an offer which John recommended I refuse. At the second court date, the prosecutor made the same offer which John again recommended I refuse, instead recommending that I go to a bench trial. At the bench trial, my case was dismissed. If it weren't for John's expert advise and his tenacity to keep fighting, I would have ended up with a misdemeanor on my record in addition to a fine and court supervision. It would have been far easier for John to recommend that I go with the prosecutors initial offer, not to mention less time consuming and less costly for him. I have the utmost respect for John and would recommend him to anyone who requires the services of an attorney.

Bringing back to me peace of mind. From the very beginning of the consultation I knew he was the indicated lawyer to handle my case. I was given a free consultation immediately and we sat and discuss about case without no rush. He took the time to answer all my questions in a very professional and carefully manner. He guided me through the whole process. John has great communication skills and has strong personality!
He was very clear and honest about my chances. He also was honest about the hole case fees and without hidden fees!!

I would have to say that John and his support staff provided impeccable service to me during the few months handling my case. He spent time with me explaining the process thoroughly, made himself available for questions and was always punctual for all meetings and appointments. The way he conducted business with me made me comfortable in a not so comfortable experience I had to go through. I would recommend John for anyone that would be in a position requiring his specific law expertise.

Mr. Callahan and his office were extremely professional from the first point on contact. As soon as I called for a consultation due to a DUI I was facing, Mr. Callahan scheduled an appointment with me right away. He was very direct, confident and professional in his strategy to assist me and answered each of my questions and concerns. Mr. Callahan and his team were supportive every step of the way during the 2 year period of court dates. After two years of fighting DUI, I was found not guilty. Great legal team and I would definitely recommend!
