About Joshua

Learn Joshua’s areas of practice.


I was born and raised in Southeast Portland.  After graduating high school I joined the US Army where I served as a Military Police Officer and Drill Sergeant for 8 years.  I was deployed overseas numerous times for both combat and non-combat missions then I returned home where I completed my college degree and attended Law School.

While I finished my undergraduate degree, I decided to start my own business providing trial support services as a consultant and technical expert.  Through that business, I was provided a great opportunity to work with some of the very best trial attorneys in Oregon.  Watching and supporting these amazing litigators, I knew this was the career meant for me.

While finishing up school, I met and married my amazing wife Annie.  We are the proud parents of three young boys, Brady, Patrick and Lucas.  When I find a little time between my family, my law practice and other business ventures, I enjoy staying active in the outdoors, especially on the golf course.  I will never leave this place I call home and hope to continue to be a Trial Attorney as long as the Oregon Courts will have me.

From my first phone call to Joshua V Callahan to my settlement, I felt Protected and safe. There was never a time that I felt that maybe I made a wrong choice in lawyers. For the rest of my life I will call Joshua Callahan first. I know if he can not help me he will find someone honest and reliable to help me.

Fantastic lawyer
Josh is a very professional lawyer, I looked and looked for a lawyer to help me on my situation and couldn't find one that was trustworthy or loyal to my case. After all the stress and money of looking for a lawyer I finally found the one. You will be happy with the way Josh excels at his communication and making sure that not one of your dollars are wasted.

Medical malpractice
Josh Callahan recently successfully completed my medical malpractice case. It was the first time I had hired a lawyer, so I didn't quite know what to expect. He and his staff exceeded my expectations over and over during the last two years. Throughout the whole process, I felt informed, supported, listened to, and valued. At every point along the way Josh let me know what was going on, asked for my input, and helped me make good decisions. The successful outcome of the case has helped lift a weight that had settled over me during three years of complications caused by the negligence of a doctor. Thank you Josh, Kristi, and Keith.

Above and Beyond
I recently moved 2000 miles to be near my mother who was diagnosed with an incurable cancer so I can help take care of her as we do not have any other family close by. My mom who was not in a position to hire a lawyer to represent her in a claim that should have been paid months ago due to the fact that she could not return to work after her diagnosis. After hearing our story and how ridiculous the situation had become, he graciously assisted us without asking for any money up front. He then followed that up by stating that as long as he does not have to go to litigation or spend a great deal of time to settle the claim, he would not charge us for his services. As it turns out Mr. Callahan was able to get the insurance company to agree to pay our claim and to do so in expedited manner. Mr. Callahan kept us aware of the situation at all times and made sure that he explained our options in detail. It is difficult to express how much relief this brought to my mom and I but more so for her, a cancer patient. She has to deal with so many other bills, pills and doctors that her stress level was increasing daily. Thanks to Josh and his efforts my mother's relief from this mess became a reality! Mr. Callahan is one of the most trustworthy, dedicated and knowledgeable people I have come across and yes, he also happens to be an attorney. I cannot recommend anyone more than Mr. Joshua Callahan

No stress
When I hired Joshua my stress level was off the charts. I was in pain and needed help. Joshua's level headed approach was reassuring. Never once in dealing with Joshua or his staff did they add to my stress, which I think is saying a lot these days. The outcome of my situation was excellent.
