Posted by Daniel
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.

I hired mr. John Callahan acouple months ago!m. I was very afraid about my future but thanks to John knowledge, experience and fast action in criminal defense we were successful in beating the case. 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!!
John Callahan never failed to defend me in any way.
In conclusion. I can say that he is very good talented lawyer in what he does and an honest lawyer! I will definitely recommend him to friends and family and will hire him again!

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!

John was successful in reinstating my revoked license- three dui's and moved out of state was a challenge however johns responsivness to my calls and questions accompied by his professionalism and knowledge of the laws in Illinois as well as other states gave me the reassurance I needed though the process . I give John the highest recommendation. Regardless of situation - trust John to get it taken care of!

John was able to help our son keep his drivers license after getting numerous tickets during a traffic stop. His expertise made an impact in the courtroom which led to a favorable outcome. He was extremely professional and we are grateful for his assistance.

After much research we chose Mr. Callahan for our son's case because we knew we needed someone with an excellent track record, who would understand the unusual circumstances of the case. We felt comfortable and felt listened to. Mr Callahan is straightforward. He was very informative and very supportive. I highly recommend the only attorney you will need.
