Michael focuses his practice on representing victims in cases involving spinal cord injury, paralysis, brain injury, loss of limb, burns, and wrongful death.

Michael received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1989. Upon graduation, he moved to Houston to work as a design and construction engineer. For the next several years, Michael worked for two major engineering/construction firms and was involved in the design and construction of refineries, chemical plants, paper mills, and other industrial facilities.

Michael Callahan combines his background, training and experience with a passion for representing people who are all too often the underdog in the fight for justice against corporations and insurance companies. Michael has built his reputation on hard work and compassion. His success comes in large part from his ability to listen to the people he represents, discover the story of the client and the case, and then tell it to the jury in a compelling, passionate and meaningful way.
