I was charged with First Degree Murder. Facing 20 to life. My family and I were hopeless and helpless. With the public defender not caring my family found Robert Callahan and he fought for me like no other would. I trusted and put my life in his hands and he treated me like a friend. With his knowledge and determination he knew just what to do. He was like a beast when he crossed examined the states witnesses and did everything to bring out the truth. He was full of knowledge and determination. He saved my life and brought me home to my family. He truly cares and I am blessed to have him as my lawyer .I can not express enough of how Amazing of a lawyer he is.Robert Callahan is a God sent and he is not only my lawyer but my friend. Thank you Robert Callahan and associates for saving my life!

In August 2015, I was arrested and charged with domestic battery. Even though I never laid a finger on the complainant family member, I wound up with a 2-day stay in Cook County Jail and, after bailing out, I faced a potentially dire situation that could mean lost work, heavy fines or --much worse-- jail time. I was scared, desperate and since I had no history of legal problems, I didn't know where to turn. I did countless Web searches for the "best" criminal lawyer in the Chicago area and the firm of Robert Callahan kept coming up. After reading several reviews, I decided to call them. Boy am I glad I did.
From the first phone call, Associate Jeff Marx put me at ease, telling me that he & his firm deal with these types of cases frequently and, after hearing the details of mine, assured me that they'd "take care of it." Two weeks later in the court room, Bob Callahan did just that. He immediately got my case dismissed and his firm is currently working on expunging my record.
If I ever find myself in legal trouble again (and I certainly plan not to!), I will call Robert Callahan. I found him and his associates to be responsive to all my inquiries, attentive to my needs, and expert in all facets of my case and the legal system as a whole. Very impressed. And very grateful.
