At The Callahan Law Firm, we are trial lawyers who represent people. We focus primarily on representing individuals and families in cases involving serious injuries and fatalities.

In sum, we fight for the rights of people like you.

Why Do I Need a Trial Attorney?

Insurance companies and corporations have attorneys who will aggressively defend the misconduct of their clients and try to minimize or prevent you and your family from getting justice. Our goal is to level the playing field against insurance company and corporate bullies and fight for your rights.

Insurance defense and corporate lawyers know which plaintiff's attorneys can and will take significant personal injury cases and first-party insurance cases to trial and which ones will not. At The Callahan Law Firm, we have a reputation as trial attorneys who can and will successfully try a lawsuit and get justice in the courtroom.

We go to trial when a defendant refuses to listen or take responsibility for its actions and compensate our client for the harm it has done.

When we settle, it is because the settlement offer made by the defendant makes sense and is acceptable to our well-informed client.

Types of Cases

From trucking accidents to drilling rig accidents to injuries caused by defective products, over the years our personal injury attorneys in Houston, Texas have successfully taken on powerful, wealthy defendants. We have represented individuals and their families in industrial workplace injury cases arising from construction, oil and gas, railroad, chemical plant, maritime and heavy equipment accidents and won time and again.

In addition, our firm is also called upon to help people and businesses involved in high-stakes insurance claims, whether based on personal insurance coverage such as life insurance or homeowners insurance, or commercial policies.

Why Us?
