Helped me with a DUI
I hired Daniel in the fall of 2022 when I was charged with a DUI. The charges were dropped because of the hard work that Daniel put in to my case. Thank you!

Helped me with DV allegations
This was the first time I needed a lawyer to help through a situation that involved a Domestic Violence allegations. As one can imagine this was one of the most stressful times of my life. Daniel did an amazing job hearing me out, gathering the facts and standing with me step by step. He was always available when I needed him. As the case went on , he kept assuring me everything will be ok . As we got closer to the 3rd appearance we were able to get it all dismissed. Honestly he was well informed, knew the laws and made me feel like a partner in this whole legal process. Till this day, I can not thank him enough.

10/10 Lawyer. Fast, responsive, and highly skilled.
Mr. Calandriello helped me obtain an expungement as fast as he possibly could. Whenever we had to correspond, Daniel always answered promptly within the same day. He is very professional and highly competent as a lawyer. Would recommend him for all legal matters to anybody in need.

Need representation? I highly recommend Mr Calandriello
I contacted Mr Calandriello for assistance with the sealing and expungement of some old cases. Right from the start, he made the process as painless as possible. He explained the process, the details of my case, and advised me of the possible outcomes and what to expect. Dan always kept in touch with updates and promptly returned my emails and calls whenever i had a question. At court, Dan took charge and represented me flawlessly. Dan successfully got my records taken care of; one sealed and one expunged. If you're looking for representation, then stop here and contact Dan. From start to finish, he does a great job! He's an awesome lawyer!

Highly recommend
I had a job offer out of state but first I had to pass a background check. I had an outstanding traffic warrant out of Illinois which was preventing me from getting hired. I hired Mr. Calandriello to help clear my situation up. He was informative and helpful. Not only was he able to remove the warrant but he also went out of his way to help me clean my driving record up. Even though he was a working paid lawyer he made it feel like he was a friend doing me a favor. I highly recommend him.

Great Experience
Had a big scare with a misdemeanor charge that was taken down to a petty offense in Will county, which from what I hear is not easy to do. I’m extremely grateful that this scary situation was taken care of. He also did a great job communicating and making things easy for me.

All-around great experience
Mr. Calandriello was the first lawyer I have ever had to hire. I would highly recommend him to anybody else in need of a traffic attorney be they new like me to the process or more “experienced”. He made the whole process easy for me to understand and was always available to answer my questions and worries. Dan has great relationships in the prosecutor’s office and with the judges that make it easy for him to try to arrange the best possible outcome for each case. Even as my case dragged on because of Covid-19 and other various things, it never felt like my case was put on a “back burner” and he always made sure I understood all legal implications associated with each decision in play. Dan was a consummate professional but very approachable and easy to talk to. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to guide me through my first court case. Hopefully I won’t need to hire his services again, but I would do so without a second thought, if necessary.

My 1st DUI
dan was amazing. He was so helpful> I was afraid I would be judged, he quickly put my feelings of shame at rest and concentrated on assisting me with my case in a swift and effective manner. I could not have asked for more.

Great attorney!!!
I recently hired Dan for a speeding ticket I received in Chicago. He was prompted to get back to me and walked me through the process. He was very knowledgeable and provided me the best option to handle the situation. I would definitely recommend him for future.

I highly recommend Dan Calandriello for DUI defense
Dan was a godsend. He was extremely knowledgeable and experienced with DUI defense. He was very patient with me and took the time to answer my many questions throughout the process. I was terrified and had so many fears...he was extremely caring and took the time to address each and every one of my concerns. He helped me to keep a cool head and get through this horrible and challenging time in my life.
