Attorney Irena W. Inman took on my very difficult case involving a restraining order and children. She was extremely professional, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable. She made all the difference in the case and it meant the world of difference for me, a father who is now reunited with his children. I highly recommend her!

Laurel advised me in a divorce and custody dispute and helped me get the best result possible for my client. She has extensive knowledge on divorce and custody proceedings, and I highly recommend her.

Attorney Kathryn G.

Laurel and her team were excellent to work with. I found them to be fair, knowledgeable, compassionate, and responsive. My divorce case was particularly intense, and financially complex. I was able to build relationships with lawyers having specific expertise in the subject matter at hand. I found all three lawyers I worked with to be equally professional, and just simply good people to work with. They supported me through what could have been a disaster, to a very good resolution.

“Dave has been one of my family’s attorney’s for the last 2 years now. We’ve unfortunately needed reoccurring representation for a child custody matter involving my brother and the mother of his child. My brother had split from the mother of his child after several years of physical and mental abuse, and despite the overwhelming evidence, it was an uphill battle for him since day one to obtain primary care and custody of his daughter.

The courts are partial to single fathers for reasons i’ll never understand, and even with all the evidence we had against the mother, it was clear that this was not going to be a slam dunk case. It was also clear who the unfit parent was, but unfortunately, reality doesn’t always play out in the court room. Needless to say, Dave was there for us when the time came two years ago when we needed a good lawyer with a steadfast approach.

We were skeptical at first, because in my eyes there isn’t anyone “good enough” to represent my brother in what would soon be the worst and most pivotal years of his life. But Dave has a confidence and trust about him that was missing in so many other lawyers we had met with. I had never felt so at peace with a decision as I had the day we signed up with Dave and his team. Throughout this entire process we had met with 3 other lawyers who fell well below the realm of satisfactory results. Looking back now I am so happy that those other sub par lawyers didn’t make the cut because I can’t imagine having to go through what my family went through with anybody else representing us besides Dave.

There were days when I thought we weren’t going to come out of this alive. Our whole world revolves around this one little girl who any of us would die to protect. And Dave got that. He put himself in our shoes and empathized with our situation because he is a real human being. He didn’t choose this career with the sole purpose to make a lot of money and grow his own firm, he genuinely cares about helping people. And that human element is what’s missing in so many other ill-intentioned attorneys. Dave was attentive to our case and always knew what was going on even if he wasn’t in the courtroom. He was responsive to all our calls, emails and texts and never made us feel as though we were burdening him unnecessarily.

That is something I have come to realize is hard to find in many lawyers. Overall Dave’s professionalism, knowledge regarding so many different types of law, down to earth demeanor and kind spirit is what sets him apart. My family and I went through a lot these past two years. A series of events that I hope no other family ever has to deal with. But if you do, its Dave Callahan who you’d want in your corner. Dave is and always will be mine and my family’s lawyer of choice!” – Jenn G.

“David is a great knowledgeable lawyer. He did a great job with my divorce. Very friendly and easy to talk to. also has a great team who works with him which makes it very easy to get things taken care of quickly. highly recommended.” – Kyle V.

“My son visited this summer from The United Kingdom, where he lived with my Ex-Wife (who had physical custody). During the visit, my son expressed that he felt in danger of going back because he was witness to my Ex-Wife and her new British citizen boyfriend fighting constantly. I immediately contacted David Callahan and Laurel Barraco because I heard they were no doubt “the best.”

Their calm but calculating personalities immediately put at me at ease because I was so frightened of my son being in the middle of that mess in a foreign country and having absolutely no recourse if something were to happen. What made my case even more complicated was that our original divorce decree and custody had been decided in the Hawaiian Court System. They let me know right up from once they had all the facts how much hiring them would cost and I have to say, not only was the cost very reasonable but they were totally transparent as well.

They used their wealth of experience and absolute knowledge of the law and the court system to strategize a plan. Within just 3 short weeks, Attorney’s Callahan and Barraco won my case. I went from being absolutely petrified thinking about my son being in this horrible living situation in a foreign country, to legal and physical custody (overriding the previous Hawaiian Court System Decree).

My son is now a happy productive member of a local 7th Grade class and he and I both have the dedication to duty, knowledge of the law, and calming personal demeanors of Attorney’s Callahan and Barraco to thank for it. I am a supporter of our military veteran’s because I think that most veterans have a piece of honor in their hearts. It wasn’t long before I could see that honor in Attorney Callahan’s heart…so I asked, and sure enough…Attorney Callahan is an Army Veteran who served his country prior to attending Law School. What a great team Attorney Callahan & Barraco make! I give my very highest recommendation to all of you who are looking for a divorce/child custody lawyer!” – Casey C.

“David was the first person spoke to once my divorce had come to my attention. I was lost confused and needed direction. Choosing a lawyer was a very difficult thing to do in a time where I felt my mind was extremely cluttered and confused. I was scared, sad, angry, among many other emotions. I felt comfortable with David right from the start. He and I sat down outlined the process, set realistic expectations, and determined the best way to approach my separation. Since then he and his team have worked tirelessly to assure that my rights as a father have been met. My son is the most important thing to me and David and his team work as if it were their own child. I could not be happier with David and the entire firm’s endless work making this difficult process as least stressful as possible.”
