Chicago, IL March 5, 2009Unfortunately, life is not always a bed of roses, and at times, it can deal very difficult cards in the form of criminal charges. Considerable amounts of criminal charges that are pressed against people are unconstitutional or outright illegal and unfair. In some cases, people just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whatever the case may be, the Constitution guarantees you certain rights. Every criminal defendant is presumed innocent. The Government has the burden of overcoming that presumption. Recent case victories for Robert J Callahan and Associates prove that one of the top names in Chicago criminal defense is Robert J Callahan. Case number 09 MC1-103171 was heard at Branch 48 Cook County Courthouse and involved a Felony drug charge. "Shelton O. was allegedly stopped by Chicago Police Officers because his license plate was not properly illuminated according to court documents. He argued with the officers about the reason for the stop and was dragged from his car," said Mr. Callahan. According to court documents the officers claimed that Shelton did not have his driver's license on his person, and arrested him. "During cross-examination at the Preliminary Hearing, the officer testified contrary to his written report. Numerous inconsistencies were exposed. At the close of cross-examination the Judge issued a finding of No Probable Cause," said Callahan. This case was dismissed with a Finding of No Probable Cause/Non-suit on 2-24-09. In the overwhelming majority of criminal cases rights are not being upheld and enforced. Rigorous, experienced and effective representation safeguards one's future, and assures compliance with one's rights. Any mistake in this area can be costly, both monetarily and with regard to personal freedom. Unless one finds an experienced Chicago defense attorney, it is not going to be easy to defend one's rights. Robert J Callahan comes out victoriously in criminal cases. His latest victories speak for themselves. Through his sharp investigation tactics, Robert Callahan established in the court that his client had other compelling reasons for fleeing the accident scene and that he was not responsible for the accident. This criminal defense attorney from Chicago is never satisfied with superficial investigation. He drills down deep into the reports until he finds his trump card and his perseverance pays well. "It is frustrating and frightening to witness what happens to people who fail to find a defense lawyer" said Mr. Callahan. "When it comes to investigation, the defense lawyer should know how to build the case against all odds. Evidence will not be as obvious to the naked, inexperienced eye as to a seasoned professional. Hard work, experience and investigation can often uncover the truth," stated Callahan. Though Robert J Callahan is a busy criminal defense lawyer, he is happy to help people who are looking for more than just legal representation. His greatest asset is his experience. Over the past 15 years, he has faced a variety of criminal cases. Mere knowledge in law is not sufficient to win cases and to prove the innocence of clients. It requires a sharp mind and the willingness to go the extra mile to safeguard the interests of his clients.
