    I was charged with OVI in Cleveland Heights. The cops also added driving in marked lines, swerving, and seatbelt. I refused to blow. I was given an Automatic License Suspension (ALS) as a result. Joe immediately saw issues with the ALS and got all the evidence needed. On the body cam, the officer even says "It's a close call" after my tests. Joe also saw a lot of issues with the administration of the tests. He was helpful and informative throughout the process & numerous delays from the Cleveland Heights court.

    When the day of reckoning finally came, Joe and his team went to work on my behalf talking to the prosecutor. The prosecutor offered reduced charges to Physical Control and Driving in Marked Lanes. I would have to do a weekend hotel alcohol course (couple hundred bucks), hope for no more driving suspension, and pay a license reinstatement fee ($500) and be on probation. Joe and his team didn't think this was a great deal. Obviously, better than an OVI, though! I was very nervous as the alternative to taking the deal was taking it to trial. Worse case scenario being potentially not being re-offered the deal, losing the case, and being charged with OVI and the other offenses. After Joe and his team carefully explained my options and how strong they felt my case was against the prosecution. This included a phone call to a big shot at the firm who stepped out a law conference he was heading to offer his personal advice to my case. Trusting their collective knowledge & expertise, I put my fate in their hands and said NO DEAL. Let's take it to trail!

    As we entered the courtroom to notify the Judge we would not be taking the plea deal, the prosecutor (visibly flustered) offered a Reckless Op (non alcohol related offense, 4pts) and a Swerving. WIN! And Joe had the ALS thrown out! No reinstatement fee and I was a valid driver within an hour due to his connections at the BMV.

    I had this enormous weight on my shoulder for months. The BIG DAY finally came and, with Joe's help, I left with the ability to drive freely and only had to pay the court $200 for the tickets.

    Of course, every situation is different. Joe & his team at Saia & Piatt will look into your case's specifics and maximize your results. He is my go-to attorney (that I will hopefully never need again)!

    Joe has worked with/in the Cleveland Municipal Courts for a while and knows the ins and outs. He also has working relationships with judges and court personnel which helps him tremendously with his cases and clients. He was recommended to me and was at my court appearance that I had scheduled for the next day. He quickly reviewed the paperwork provided by OSP and immediately found some issues with it. Ultimately, he got the OVI dropped. I would highly recommend him.

    I had a situation when I was operating a car way over allowed drinking level. My BAC level was over Tier 3. Basically I was looking into some jail time plus probation. Joe did such a wonderful job. He returned partial driving privileges withing one week, and I had full privileges withing a month. My case was over within 6 months. I got reckless operation and no alcohol involvement. That was the greatest outcome for me and my family, since I got a privilege to apply for my US citizenship without waiting 5 more years. Joe remained professional throughout entire time, he proved that police officers did not do their job according to their rules. I would definitely recommend Joseph Donald Hada to any of my friends since his perfect skills left me absolutely speechless and put my life back together. Thank you, Joseph.

    Joe Hada assisted my attorney Ken Bossin in the preparation of my case including by not limited to research, investigating and accumulating facts in order to represent me. Though most of my interaction was with Ken Bossin, Joe Hada was available to update me on my case when Ken Bossin was not available. Joe was easy to work with, extremely enthusiastic, well informed and kept current on my case at all times. He was very informative and walked me through the processes of the case and updated me on what to expect. I would highly recommend Joe Hada to defend anyone who may need his expertise.

    I didn't know what to do. I was looking at a possible 2nd OVI charge. I just so happened upon Joseph's profile here on Avvo. With so many good reviews I decided to give him a try. I am so glad I did. Joseph was very accommodating to my situation. He even drove out to meet me and even offered me rides. He explained everything to me about the case and provided me with a good amount of information on what to expect. He really worked my case. Interviewed the officers, checked the videos, etc. Long story short, and I'm not saying this can happen to you. He got my charged dropped down to a lesser offense! He pretty much saved me years if not a lifetime of headaches. Thank you Joe! I appreciate everything you did for me.

    I was very impressed by how responsive and effective Joe was. He took the time to thoroughly discuss all options and possibilities, and worked hard to ensure my life was minimally disrupted while the case was going on. Both Ken and Joe were clearly very knowledgeable of the courts and laws, and my case was brought to a satisfactory close.
