" Knowledgeable, aggressive, creative and nice. Christine McCall explained everything, gave me sound strategic advice, and explained the reasons for her recommendations. She kept me informed about events on my case on a real-time basis — several times a week when necessary. She returned my calls and e-mails on the same day, always. She was very persuasive and effective in pre-hearing negotiations, which were not successful, and she was outstanding in presenting my evidence and arguing my case at the fair hearing – and THAT was successful!"
Client, CA Attorney

" Ms. McCall has a tremendous amount of experience–38 years of practicing law not only as a lawyer but also she was a former administrative judge. It’s evident that she is a consummate professional and a great lawyer with vast legal knowledge!"

" I can think of no greater praise for an attorney than to say that the attorney is smart, skilled, studious, interesting, caring, kind, ethical, articulate, and pragmatic, and tells it like it is. And all of that is absolutely true of Christine. She is the kind of lawyer who inspires confidence and then earns that confidence. Anyone who retains Christine is certain to be in good hands. "
