Michael focuses his practice on representing victims in cases involving spinal cord injury, paralysis, brain injury, loss of limb, burns, and wrongful death.
Michael received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1989. Upon graduation, he moved to Houston to work as a design and construction engineer.

Michael Callahan combines his background, training and experience with a passion for representing people who are all too often the underdog in the fight for justice against corporations and insurance companies. Michael has built his reputation on hard work and compassion. His success comes in large part from his ability to listen to the people he represents, discover the story of the client and the case, and then tell it to the jury in a compelling, passionate and meaningful way.

When my husband died at work in a crane accident, I wanted answers as to what happened and why. My lawyers at The Callahan Law Firm worked very hard to investigate the incident and uncover the evidence to hold the company accountable. I am so grateful for the work they did to help me get some answers and make the company take responsibility for their mistakes.
After I was exposed to poisonous gas while working on a gas well site in the Eagle Ford Shale, I was unable to return to work for nearly 2 years. That's when I hired The Callahan Law Firm to help. The owner of the well refused to accept responsibility for what happened. My lawyers took the case to trial and in the end, the jury returned a unanimous verdict in my favor. I would recommend Michael and Casey to anyone who needs a trial lawyer in a serious injury case.
