We Have a Winning Strategy for Criminal Defense

At the law offices of John W. Callahan, Ltd., we will fight for you. We will relentlessly subpoena evidence and other materials so we understand both the strengths and the weaknesses of the state's case against you. Then we will conduct our own investigations to challenge the prosecutor's charges.

By combining our knowledge, skills and experience, we are able to handle even the most difficult cases effectively. In fact, we have built a record of success handling cases other lawyers said were impossible to win.

Our job as criminal lawyers is to put together the most effective defense possible to ensure you are found not guilty. That is the bottom line. More often than not, it works out.
