I was arrested for what looked to be a second dui, and definitely needed all the help I could get. After looking up different lawyers on this site, I really liked what I read about Mr. Hada and called to set up an appointment.
I had little recollection of that night (sad, I know), and felt I was screwed as I wasn't very helpful to Joseph. He never judged me for my bad decision, and was honest about what could happen, and things to possibly expect. He advised me on what to do in the meantime.
He worked very hard, and went above and beyond what many lawyers might do. In the end, my dui was dropped to a reckless op, but there were still consequences, as there should be. I highly recommend Mr. Hada to those seeking counsel.

Joseph Hada represented me in an OVI case in Berea. I initially met Mr. Hada as an associate of attorney Kenneth Bossin. Throughout my case, Mr. Hada was top-notch at keeping me informed and worked tirelessly to have my charges reduced. His efforts were successful and the outcome of my case was exactly what we set out to accomplish! I would recommend his counsel to anyone.

Competent, aggressive, informed, intelligent and just plain good at what they do doesn't even begin to describe these attorneys. They will be upfront and honest with you about your scenario and then work their hardest to try and get the best outcome they possibly can for you! If you choose another attorney.......you made a mistake!

Joe Hada represented me alongside his partner Ken Bossin in an OVI case within the tough Cleveland Municipal Court system. Things looked bleak but Joe kept his nose to the grindstone and through knowledge of law, my charges were reduced to a Physical Control - would have been a 2nd OVI. The judge really wanted a conviction due to my prior history, however, Joe was aggressive in court and didn't back down when the judge was raining down hellfire and brimstone. Joe Hada was easy and prompt to communicate with during the whole ordeal and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.

Exceptionally personable and a student of his craft, Joe did a terrific job managing a favorable outcome regarding my matter. I would not hesitate using his services again in the future regarding any legal matter and would refer him to family and friends.

I was charged with a low level OVI, and having never been in trouble like this before, it was an extremely scary and confusing situation. Joe Hada was simply wonderful; from the first meeting we had, he explained everything about the legal process to me, all the details for where the case was going to go, and what steps we needed to take. When we talked about what happened that night, even before seeing the video evidence, he was already finding fault with the way the officers had gone about arresting me.
Joe combed every detail of the case; he even went out to where I was pulled over to measure if the ground was level! I know he must have had other cases going on, but it never felt that way. With how prepared he was each time we met, and all the details he knew, it felt like my case was the only one he was working on! There would often be times when I would get really nervous waiting on the prosecution to send some evidence, or in the days leading up to pretrial hearings, but Joe would always be available if I called, and he was very good at calming my nerves by explaining where we were at in the case and what his plan was from there. I cannot stress enough how kind he always was in addition to knowing his stuff!
When it came time for the pretrial hearing, he was exceptionally prepared to present the legal faults he found with the prosecution's case. No detail was left unturned! At one point, he was even instructing my arresting officer how to properly administer some of the field sobriety tests! I had a very tough court, but he was able to get them to reduce the OVI charge to a physical control violation and reckless operation. I cannot imagine a more knowledgeable, confident lawyer to have worked with during this case; I am confident that if I had had anyone else representing me, I would have been convicted of an OVI. If you are charged with an OVI, I cannot repeat it enough: don't waste your time or money, just stick with Joe Hada!

Joe is a fantastic lawyer and an excellent human being. I was in a very rough spot and Joe was quick to get the ball rolling and gave me a since of confidence that I hired the right lawyer. I was treated as with the utmost respect and dignity throughout my representation and his council helped give me confidence about a potential dire outcome. Fair, honest, consistent and knows what to do. A+++++

Joe did a great job with my entire case. He explained everything to me as the case went on. To make a long story short, he worked each step of my case and got the charges reduced based on the facts.

As a person who has never needed the use of a lawyer, I was pleasantly surprised on the attention to detail, attentiveness, friendliness, and how professional Joe was. He thought of everything! All of my questions were answered promptly. As someone who is very embarrassed by my OVI, I found it great that I could text Joe so my daughter and or co-workers couldn't hear our conversations. As a result of Joe's hard work, two of my charges were dismissed and the other was reduced! He made a horrible situation in my life bearable and by the end, I'm very happy with the results. I recommend Joe to anyone has found themselves with an OVI. He gets results! Thank you again Joe!

A few months ago, I was pulled over and charged with an OVI. Being a junior in college searching for internships, and eventually a job, this wasn't exactly the greatest thing I could have done to help my career. I emailed Mr. Hada the following day and he replied within a few hours asking to hear more about my case. Throughout the ordeal Joe stayed in contact with me and answered any questions I had about my case. He and his partner, Ken Bossin, represented me on my court dates and eventually had my OVI charge dropped to a Reckless Operation charge. They both did a great job and I would highly recommend them to anyone dealing with a similar situation. I am very happy with my decision to hire Joe Hada.
