How We Work to Protect Your Rights

We know that some law firms start out with a worst-case scenario mindset and try to work up from that. We believe that this is a setup for failure. Instead, we start out your case with every intention to keep you out of jail and keep your record clean, regardless of how challenging the charges you are faced with may be.

This mindset has allowed us to build a strong record of success in reckless homicide and related cases. In our decades of time spent standing up for the rights of people in Chicago, Schaumburg and the surrounding parts of Illinois, we have demonstrated to the prosecution how far we are willing to go to get results. This does not mean that we play games or pull moves that are meaningless. It means that we are careful, thorough and precise. It means we are dedicated to winning.

In addition to handling reckless homicide cases that are related to drunk driving, John W. Callahan, Ltd., can handle other related matters. No matter what has caused you to be charged, our lawyers can help.

Reckless Homicide or Attempted Suicide?

We represented a woman who had run over a young man with her car. Somehow, she didn't even notice what she had done until later when she saw it on the news. She called to turn herself in and found herself charged with a crime. We dug in, looking at all the evidence, and discovered that the young man had been attempting suicide by trying to jump in front of cars. He had failed several times until he discovered a way to do it without being noticed by the driver. While this was a tragic situation, we intend to prove that our client was not at fault.*
