I believe you judge an attorney by the end result.
Mr. Hager had my case dismissed.
needless to say i am very happy with the outcome and the service.
John saved me when my complex name change case was heading down the proverbial creek, with me in it. At our first meeting John listened to my situation, patiently answered all my questions, and proposed an entirely different strategy for the name change. Previous rulings and negotiations had been going against me and he turned everything around. I would recommend John for any legal situation where you want a fair legal outcome!
the best lawyer and person out there he actually listens and understands everything your going through, and always returns phone calls and is always 100% concern of your case! I would definitely recommend him!
Mr. Hager is an immensely knowledgeable and compassionate attorney who understands and will promote the best interests of the child in Family Law Matters. I am probably the worst client to have because I don't consult I just do what I think is right, but he has tolerated me and supported me in every aspect of the case. As an individual with only my child's interest in mind, I consulted with many attorneys who kind of had a "let's get em" kind of motif but I wasn't interested in that. I wanted an attorney that would be objective and honest and also with the child's interest in mind above all else. If I am being overly protective I want to know that honestly, if the judge will see me as not cooperating I want to know that also. We do get caught up in emotions in Family Law cases, and in my case a lot of Fear involved but Mr. Hager has helped me to navigate those waters in an objective and fair manner.
Having Mr. Hager as a representative for my family was a great experience. He took his time to explain everything about the case and always explained the procedure. He was always persistant and work hard to get all the evidence he needed for the case. if I had to give Mr. Hager and his law frim a rating I would 15/10. The situation was dificult at time but Mr. Hager made it less difficult. Mr. Hager was professional and friendly. I would recommend to anyone who needs a great lawyer.
If you want a lawyer that will meet you at any given time of the night will pick up your calls even on a Sunday afternoon and will not bullshit you and tell what it is then pick this guy. I've been using Hager and Bret for years wheather it's for advice or for legal issue things get done with these guys
We hired John to handle my case. I was being accused of felony theft. From our initial consultation, I could just tell he was the one who would represent me the way I should be represented, with honor. John and his firm, kept me updated on everything revolving around my case. If I had a question, I had an answer extremely fast. At one of the most difficult times in my life, Mr. Hager was able to provide me the one thing nothing or no one else could, peace inside my head.
Thank you for all you did Mr. Hager. I am a happy client. I don't expect to need your services again, but in the event I do, you are on my speed dial.
I was able to hire John Hager in the middle of the night upon learning that my daughter had been unjustly arrested without bond. He was able to get her released on her own recognizance later that day, and had all charges dismissed prior to the arraignment. He successfully obtained a restraining order against her ex boyfriend with full rights to the house and belongings. At the same time he successfully argued that the ex-boyfriend's restraining order against my daughter be dropped. We maintained constant communication. My daughter describes him as a pitbull in court. That is exactly who you want defending you. In addition, he is very well connected and knows all the players in the legal system. Mr. Hager is expensive, but he is worth every penny.
John Hager is a very well connected and respected lawyer. The fact that he knows all the judges, prosecutors and other attorneys throughout Florida, helped expedite quickly the resolution of my case in exactly the terms I desired. He got all my charges dropped and case dismissed, had a injunction for my protection enforced for life and he did it in 2 weeks. He is undoubtedly experienced. His confidence and authority shined through in the courtroom as well as while deposing opposing parties. He does not back down or let anybody push you as his client around. If you want a tough and smart lawyer, John Hager is the one for you.
I would not know where to begin with John Hager. Not only is he a great lawyer but also a great business man with family values. When I needed legal help, I inquired all over the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area with friends and I got several recommendations from to use John hager for legal assistance. Upon contacting John he made an immediate prediction of the turnout of my case. I spoke to him directly, not a legal assistant. He makes time for his clients and shows that they are important. He was honest and explained the best and worst possible outcomes. He also gave me an extremely fair price for his service. John hager is very fast when it comes to getting the process started. He is constantly ahead of the game and has a top of the line office with superior staff. Mr. Hager has so much experience in the south florida court circuit; He is well known by several prosecutors and judges. John hager is confident in his extensive legal knowledge and defends you by any means. My case involved several emails and letters to many agencies and John hager handled them all effortlessly. Mr. Hager turned my seriously future threatening case into a minor case which is now expunged. He even made the process faster by making the program process happen faster so I could complete it sooner. Hager started the expunging process immediately after my case was settled. Everything was done in less than one year! Definitely give him a call and allow him to give you a consultation you won't regret it!
