Best Criminal Defense in Peoria
I believe Christopher is the best and most proffesional lawyer you could have on your side in a criminal defense case. I had a hard case in which I was facing two felonies I obtained in my Peoria, Illinois. Christopher had the expertise to handle both of the charges I was facing, one in which he had completely dropped. Thanks to Chris I had peace of mind during my case, and my freedom after we resolved it. Chris was very quick to respond to any question I had about my difficult case. I would highly recommend Christopher when it comes to getting the best possible outcome from your case.

Precisely Exemplary
I can't say enough about Chris McCall. He was absolutely fantastic! He gave my family and myself hope in the most difficult time of my life. When I felt I was at the mercy of the criminal justice system, he gave me confidence that I had a champion of defence who was on my side. He explained everything clearly and precisely. During my trial he was with me professionally and personally. He fought hard for me and my position on every opportunity and issue. He made me feel that we had full control of the tempo and situations in the courtroom. He exuded confidence and control and I am so greatful he took my case and became my attorney. Once again I can never say enough for or about the man who came to my aid and assisted me in my darkest hour. If anyone ever feels they or a loved one is in a hopeless situation, this is the man to consult! He is an exemplary attorney and an outstanding and compassionate man. Thank you again Chris, I can never say enough.

Miseamndo Dropped No Charges
Mr. McCall and his team are an excellent and very professional law firm. I got arrested for obstructing an officer and I didn't know what to do. Luckily, working with McCall Law Firm was the right decision. I had him represent me for my first misdemeanor and the results were awesome. There was no trial, no charges, and no conviction. He is a very friendly and cool guy he knows how to get the best outcomes when representing you. I highly recommend Mr. McCall if you want to have the strongest possible defense in the Peoria area.

Trustworthy, fair, and caring attorney
After meeting Chris during our consult, we felt confident in hiring him. It was clear that he is a great listener and cares very deeply about helping others. He represented my child and helped us obtain a strong Order of Protection for her. Chris delivered on everything single thing he said he would do....we got every parameter we asked for in my child's Order. It took several court hearings and Chris or Robert was always there and prepared!! I also wanted to add that Robert is every bit as amazing to work with as Chris. If you choose to work with the McCall Office, you have chosen wisely.

Thank you
The McCall office was very nice and understanding. They explained everything step by step. I was able to talk with Chris personally without having to make an appointment first. He surely put my mind at ease and handle my case exactly the way he said he would. He is reasonably priced as well. He followed up on return questions by returning my calls swiftly. Chris made this process for me pretty much painless. Thank You Team. I will definitely call upon if I ever need an attorney again.

Amazing attorney.
Had an order protection served, I called Chirs to get some advice and help on what I should do. I met up with him at his office and talked about my case. He was straight forward about it. He didn't tell me what I wanted to hear. He gave me the truth about what could happen. He was very professional and at the end of it all we won the case and I can't thank him enough for helping me out.

GREAT GREAT LAWYER
I called Mr. McCall's office just for damage control because I was in a bad way with my third DUI. I was just trying to save my job. Not only did Christopher save my job he saved my life with what he did for me. I've had other lawyers but he by far was the greatest. This man got me a better deal with my third DUI then the others got me on my first and second DUI. Mr. McCall is definitely the man for the job. Thank you sir for what you did for me.

Juvenile Case Handled with Ultimate Care resulted in Positive Outcome
Every good parent wants to help their child, sometimes it takes help. Mr. McCall was that help for us. He knew when to use empathy and when to be straightforward with everyone involve. All of that with professionalism and patients. He helped to turn a negative situation into a life lesson for my child. We can't thank him enough.

A great man for the job.
Christopher McCall is a great, personable, and affordable attorney. I know he practices multiple forms of law, and he definitely helped me out in my family matters case. He and his staff were always there to answer any questions or concerns I had (and I did have a lot of them). He used his skills perfectly in the court and the outcome was excellent. I appreciate everything you did for me. Thank you.

Chris McCall review
I used Chris for a DUI case a few years ago. I gave Chris five stars in all of the categories above because my experience as a whole with Chris was exactly that. I won my case and would use him again in the future.

Christopher McCall highly recommend for any case
I have been very impressed with Christopher McCall as my lawyer. I have used him several times and am currently using him for an ongoing case. Christopher McCall is very professional and reliable. He gets back with his clients either by phone or email soon after being contacted. He has also been there for me for an emergency and met me within minutes of me contacting him. He has the experience, knowledge, and courtroom presence that is needed to win any case.

Highly recommend
Chris McCall helped me with some issues I had with a former employer; he is very knowledgeable of employment law, and was able to clearly and effectively explain my rights. He advised me on how to conduct myself in future job interviews, and even contacted my former employer's HR department regarding the issue. Chris kept me involved through the entire process, and is kind, professional and personable. Would highly recommend him.

A Man Worth having on Your Side
I would consider Mr. McCall to be a man of high caliber. He was hired as my attorney April of 2013, after I found myself in a particular situation that could have resulted in the end of my military career; McCall Law Offices intervened and had the charge dismissed, resulting in his client receiving a lesser charge. We all do not expect to ever find ourselves on the wrong side of the law; however, if that is the case, people can rest assure with being represented by Mr. McCall and McCall Law Offices.
