My son was arrested for underage drinking after going to a party. I didn't know what to do since I live in aother State. I found Mr. hager on the internet and called very late at night and he answered!! He assisted me in obtaining a bondsman and getting my client out of jail. After that, he got the prosecutor to dismiss the case. He answered all my questions throughout the whole case.

After wasting time, money and prolonged frustration with an inexperienced “Boutique Attorney”; we learned our lesson and meticulously searched for a confidant and experienced Criminal Defense Attorney and found John S. Hager from Hager & Schwartz P.A. in Hollywood Florida. Attorney Hager communicated in a prompt and honest manner all aspects of our case to us. He was very diligent, easy to understand, listened to our concerns and made sure that there were no unanswered questions.
From the moment he became involved with my case (Battery on LEO) his demeanor was one of genuine care. We formed a dynamic team together lead by Attorney Hager.
During the trial, Attorney Hager’s level of preparation was outstanding. He overcame all anticipated and unanticipated obstacles during the trial. During a trail tensions and emotions are extremely heighten. However, Attorney Hager was capable of transferring a feeling of serenity by reassuring us through his deliverance during the trail. (acquitted)
I highly recommend Attorney Hager and his firm. That is if you are looking for a confidant and experienced attorney who’s always available and works proactively towards your case while keeping you informed through every single step. He made us feel actively involved and understood the importance of the case.
I sincerely thank him for the help he provided us and for keeping our family together.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have worked with John on a number of sensitive cases involving an overlap of criminal and immigration issues. He works hard in negotiating with prosecutors in order to enter into a plea that will have the least consequences for our mutual clients from an immigration perspective. I would highly recommend John.
