| Hired Attorney
Lighting Design & Direction est. 1979
I was introduced to John Callister by Mutual acquaintance. Since that time I have retained him on several different issues also refer to others to him for complicated contract law and other situations. He always answers the phone himself when called goes out of his way to excel in his profession and is one of the most straight up people and honest I've ever met and I'm not a huge fan of lawyers. This one however you can take to the bank one of the best people I've ever met and proud to call him a friend.

He is one of the only good attorneys left in this state. He was framed and Nevada is corrupt
He was suspended for something he didn’t even do and the corrupt judges and bar of Nevada and corrupt attorneys are to blame. It’s sickening and gives me no faith in judges or attorneys or any person or group that affiliates with Nevada attorneys. So sad to see this in our community. He is an honest person who is being made an example of by crappy people. Be careful. But feel at ease hiring Jonathan Callister. He is seriously one of the only honest people left.
