Review Robert Callahan

  • First Degree Murder

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Cody

    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!

  • Awesome Criminal Trial Lawyer

    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.

    I hired robert callahan to handle my case 7/9/14. I went to court for a speeding ticket i was driving 27 over the limit. My case was a misdemeanor and i was looking at over a thousand dollars in fines and possibly 6 months of jail time. But thanks to robert all i have now very small fine i have to pay in a month.. he was very helpful he told the judge my situation and he got the judge to reduce my fine. He is good at what he does i recommend him to anyone looking for a good lawyer. He was the best.

    I have used Robert Callahan for a legal situation that kind of brought my world crashing down around me. While it is still going to trial, I am sure I am in capable hands with Bob, and I would trust no other attorney with my life. I have referred countless others to him with invariably amazing results over the years. I consider him a friend and a real man of Chicago. If you have a serious case and you can afford his services (if you can't get a loan) he will take care of you.

    I had a fairly serious legal issue but was fortunate to be put in touch
    with Mr. Callahan. He is highly skilled, extremely competent and very
    attentive. I am what you would consider a high maintenance client who
    needed to be intimately involved in my case. Mr. Callahan always
    returned my calls, was proactive and committed to helping in win my
    case. He exudes extreme confidence and was always willing to go the
    extra mile. He even visited me in jail late at night, how many other
    attorneys would do that. Never underestimate the power of a good
    attorney. The state knows who the good attorneys are and they are far
    less likely to pursue a marginal case if they know who they are up
    against. For me, my felony case was dropped, I considered it a miracle.
    Don't risk your future, go with the best you will be happy you did.

  • Best Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney Around

    5.0 stars

    Posted by John

    I have had some experience with criminal defense attorneys in the past and I wish that I had found Attorney Callahan sooner. Me and my roommate spend the day drinking and watching football. We decided to go out and my roommate drove. We got pulled over, the cops arrested my roommate and searched me, there were enough drugs in the car that I was arrested and charged with a class x felony. I was looking for criminal defense attorneys in Chicago and I found Mr. Callahan online. I got in touch with him really quickly. I told him what happened and it seemed like Mr. Callahan started to handle it while we were still on the phone. He explained what could happen to me because of these charges but I felt like he was on top of it. I think all of his experience as an attorney working criminal defense in Chicago helped settle my nerves. I mean, he and his staff had answers to pretty much all of my questions. My case went to trial but Mr. Callahan really showed up and performed. I was found not guilty! I know it wasn't magic, he was just good. I needed serious help and this guy did it.

    I have nothing but great things to say about Robert Callahan and his defense law firm. This is the best experience I have ever had with any
    defense attorney, he was very professional and knows everything about this business. If you're thinking about using him, please don't hesitate to
    call because you won't regret it.

    Well respected, hardworking and honest are a few of the words I would use to describe Robert Callahan. He is a criminal defense attorney in Chicago that actually cares about his clients and the outcome of their case. Criminal Defense Attorneys at Callahan and Associates treated me with respect and was extremely responsive to my requests. I highly recommend Robert Callahan to anyone in "criminal trouble" with the law. http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl=&ie=UTF8&q=chicago+defense+lawyer&fb=1&gl=us&hq=defense+lawyer&hnear=Chicago,+IL&cid=10405630393995354548&z=14

    Mr Callahan advised me on how to proceed immediately upon contact.
    matter was resolved exactly as promised.
    I was surprised that he won my case based on the technicality of Supreme Court ruling 504.

    I will use Mr. Callahan if i need to.

  • Class X Case Dismissed

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Greg

    I have had legal representation before, however, I have never had a lawyer as concerned and personal as Callahan. He allways returned my calls, and he made sure that I was aware of what was going on with my case. Not only did he review the case he also invited me to his office to see if I could be of any help. Before the motion hearing that we had he made me aware of the consequences that I faced if things didn't go well, that I had a good chance of beating the case and why. I was most impressed with his enthusiasm when he said before the hearing " let me calm down cause I'm kind of hyper right now". He had a fire inside of him that made me feel that what ever the result of this case was he did his best.
