on Sept, 2014 I was charged with a offense that I didn't committed.. after back and forth with my PD. my family said that's it. we getting you a lawyer. on July 9 2015 Robert and his team came to court.. on that day their first day we all learn that the DNA didn't match. my grandmother wasn't working and give Robert and his team her last money that she saved.. Robert talked to my grandmother with respect and always answered for her. if he wasn't in the office she called trust me he called her back same day with answer to all of her question. Robert and his team his came into my case and got the truth to come out. not only did they get my case dismissed, they also give my grandmother her moneys worth. I was in jail for nearly two years, they came and got my case dismissed within 6-8months. they work for you. at first im like all lawyers are the same and they working with the state. NO NO NO NO NO not true they work with me and for me. and Jeff he is the one who had a heart to heart with me on the phone while I was in jail. the one thing that still stick with today is " this is your life NOT mines but im going to treat it like it mines and get us home" and I swear he not only said that but he did what he said he was going to do.. If they tell u something trust me Robert and his time and do it just trust and believe in them and always have faith, as Aaron always told me lol. thanks guys. I hope I never have to see you again in court.. if I do hey just answer and show up and make me proud again... more »

Bob and I have collaborated on many cases over the years including very complicated drug conspiracy cases. His energy and professionalism are unmatched. If I were ever charged with a crime and my freedom and career were on the line, he is the lawyer that I would call to save my skin. That's the biggest vote of confidence that I can give. more »

I'm a college student who got arrested for marijuana possession and paraphernalia possession, I was panicked and worried about getting a lawyer that I could trust as my father has warned me of his bad experiences, however the Callahan Law Firm and Aaron Rosenblatt, who represented me in court, were very trustworthy and got the case dismissed with ease. Now I am going forward with Aaron to expunge the case so that I can have a clean record and move on from this incident. more »

Being on the verge of graduating from the university and getting a degree in engineering I was charged with a level 3 felony and felt like all what I was dreaming for and worked hard for was going to waste. The feeling of losing hope and having no one to stand by me as being an international student alone here, I desperately searched for a lawyer to defend me and guess what?! Robert Callahan was more than just a lawyer that was defending me. He was like an older brother to me. Comforted me, relieved my stresses and gave me hope that I once lost. I witnessed a level of professionalism that I did not see anywhere else. It took us a while but I never had to worry as I had the best of the best standing next to me. At the end, Thank you so much for the support that you provided and thank you for giving me another chance in life. PS: I graduated with an engineering degree and found a job back home thanks to you!! Best of wishes!! more »

This guy is the best, he took good care of me. Very professional and confident.. I would totally recommend him as he dissmed my case with very little time. He kept me updated all the with what's going on with the case. He also made sure that I understand everything. He also deleted the record that I have after the case was dismissed. With this guy I wouldn't think twice. Just go for it. more »

God gave me a blessing of a life time when Jeff and Aaron won my case at trial on
Thursday March 3rd 2016 they always from the beginning they told me they will win my case ever since I 1st hired
them in July of 2015. On Saturday June 13th 2015 at 10:56pm I was arrested for Possession of a Firearman by a Felon there was only one witness he came to court. He was a Police Officer he took the stand at trial and said I made eye contact with him I ran away from him. He lost sight of me then he saw a gun in a L shape that was black go over a fence on 18th and Marshfield at the bank parking lot across the street from the bank then he said a few seconds later he detained me and a a couple minutes later he found the gun... The Officer said he never saw a gun in my possion and that he lost sight of me for 15seconds... At trial on Thursday March 3rd 2016 God gave me a big blessing and I was found not guilty at trial... Thank you Aaron and Jeff.. more »

I highly recommend Robert Callahan and his team. Unfortunately, at a particularly difficult time in my life, I was arrested for theft and charged with a felony. Aaron Rosenblatt, my first contact at the firm, met with me and proved very reassuring and confident in my coming out of this without a conviction. He was supportive and guided me through the whole legal process, and was quick to respond to my calls when I needed him. I was also represented by Jeff Marx and Robert Callahan during the three initial appearances I made at court. Both Mr. Marx and Mr. Callahan were professional and understanding, and also spoke to my family and put them at ease after each court meeting. As I had no criminal history prior to my arrest and was a very low-risk offender, I was placed in the Deferred Prosecution program, and after nine months my case was dismissed. I am now able to petition to have my arrest record expunged, for which process Mr. Rosenblatt is again counseling me. I am very grateful to have had the support and assistance of the Callahan firm, and can move forward with confidence and leave everything that happened behind me. more »

Man, I just feel blessed... I was in a situation where the only way I could come out of it was by putting my faith in God. No matter how good my lawyers were, no matter how much celebrity I had, everything was just stacked up against me. But luckily I had God on my side a caring family and a team of lawyers that did exactly what they had to do... But I really wanna thank my homie Arron... He held it down when it was crunch time... And I really appreciate everything you did, so for that you'll forever be my pal more »

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.
