Keeps his word and will be there for you when you need him!
Whenever someone makes false allegation about you regarding a minor you need an attorney, you need Adam Bleile. During a custody battle back in 2011 I was accused of abuse and Adam was available to answer all my questions and made sure to take the appropriate steps needed to protect my career and life outside of work. Nothing ever came of the accusations but Adam made me aware many times things could pop up down the road in these situations. Wow was he correct, seven years later the mother tried to use these tactic against me again to make her situation better - she was recently arrested for drug (Meth) possession and instantly (the next morning) went to cops making false allegations. Adam was right there for me again and didn't leave me hanging. Her false story quickly fell apart but having Adam by my side seven years later as he promised meant a lot. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with false accusations - he will get to the truth! He is available anytime you need him, he responded to my first email while he was boarding a plane on his way home from vacation!

An expert in the area of sex crimes
After being falsely accused of sexual assault and reported to the police, Adam reached out to local law enforcement and after which they stopped contacting me, case was dropped. Now Adam continues to help with the colleges title IX investigation, he knows the language of these kinds of hearings and is very familiar with all areas of sexual crimes. If you need representation for something involving a sex crime hire someone like Adam who specializes in the area.

Fought hard - and won
My girlfriend and I recently hired Adam Bleile and Chelsea Pille from their firm. He did a fantastic job of jumping down everyone's throat he could and challenging everything that could possibly be challenged. Chelsea was a great compliment in researching the legal precedents in a very complicated case and keeping facts straight. Good attorney, and good support from his partner.

Pandering, Unlawful, and Disseminating Charges
I'm 26 years old, my girlfriend was 15 turning in 16 in 3 weeks to have been legal to avoid these charges. I thought my life was over, I was facing a sex offender status and possibly the longest jail time. I hired Adam Bleile, 3 weeks before my sentence date to change lawyers because I had a really bad one, where I was offered a plea deal to register but no jail time. I decided I didnt want that, I wanted to see if I had a chance. Adam and his awesome associate attorney Chelsea helped me to the fullest extent. Yesterday, all 3 of my charges were dismissed. Two felonies and a misdemeanor. Not just because of my girlfriend fighting for me but also for these two great lawyers. Thank you Adam and Chelsea.

Unlawful sexual contact with minor
I was charged with u lawful sexual contact with a minor, I went seeking legal advice from several lawyers until I came to Adam Bleile he explained his plan and how he deals with a multitude of cases like this. I trusted him and choose him as my representation. Adam was always available to answer my questions, calls, texts, ect. He went out of his way in court several times to go after the prosecutor For attempting to label me as a monster or some kind of criminal. He went above and beyond throughout the entire process to make sure I understood everything going on kept me updated through every step and procedure. After almost 2 years I was offered a couple plea deals to which one I was going to take. But Adam came through for me once again. He motioned for dismissal of the case and won. Today I got a call from him telling me this and I could have done a back flip from the excitement I thought my life was over, contemplated suicide, prayed every single day for it to just be over and to have my old life back and now, thanks to Adam. I can do that. Thanks for everything Adam !

I will ALWAYS keep his # on me.
My initial impression of Adam is that he was caring and inquisitive about my situation while also being truthful about the road that lay ahead for me. We laid out put prioritise and Adam made himself available to me via phone/text/email at any time. My charges consisted of a complex situation involving many different players, but Adam cut right to the quick of things and frankly I'd always feel a million times better after talking to him. Adams poise and strategy in the courtroom was professional and well done as well. I am eternally grateful for his assistance in proving my innocence and while I hope I'll never need his services again; if the moment arises I know who to call. Thanks Adam!

Review for Mr. Adam Bleile
I was represented by Mr. Bleile in a case involving my Dog Rescue Organization. I must mention that Mr. Bleile is professional, well versed in trial proceedings and has a flexible schedule. I appreciated the following professional characteristics that Mr. Bleile displayed during my canine rescue organization trial: 1) diligent-he frequently referenced Clermont County Animal Shelter/Rescue code 956.10c during my case; 2) resourceful-he advised me of the appropriate process to register my canine companions; and, 3) just- he held the Clermont County Police and Clermont County Shelter for Animals to the “letter of the law”. Mr. Bleile clearly identified the subject matter before the State of Ohio regarding my case: the lack of evidence that the Clermont County Police and the Clermont County Animal Shelter had against me. Also, Mr. Adam Bleile presented to the Clermont County Court the lack of ability that law enforcement had to enforce the Ohio Revised Code appropriately in my case. Moreover, he demonstrated the lack of clarity found within the current Ohio Revised Code in regards to canine registration. He stated during the trial: “the County has no proof to show that any of the canines found on the Defendant’s property inhabits his place of residence”. The judge ultimately dismissed the entire case thanks to the efforts of Mr. Bleile. Furthermore, Mr. Bleile is a part of a firm that has dedicated attorneys that are available for legal advice or for various attorney referrals. I have been helped by the Bleile and Dawson firm on a previous occasion for a serious matter concerning false accusations. Mr. Bleile and his firm displayed a non-judgmental approach in dealing with the false accusations concerning me. Therefore, I highly recommend Adam Bleile and his firm Bleile and Dawson.

Great Guy, Great Lawyer!
In addition to being an outstanding lawyer, Adam is better characterized as caring and compassionate to his clients. At the most stressful times, no matter what time it has been, he's "always there" and easily reachable. I was concerned when I needed to find a lawyer, but I was very quickly put at ease by his professionalism and sincere interest in m case. I suggest him to all!

Above and Beyond
I was arrested and called Mr. Bleile on a Friday evening around 6:30 p.m. I was transported to the Hamilton County Justice Center, Mr. Bleile came right away after I called him and he sat with me at the jail and stayed with me until my bail was set and my family paid my bond and came to pick me up. He was understanding and knowledgeable of my situation. He represented me in court and the case was dismissed. He is an excellent attorney and always goes above and beyond .

Very happy client.
Hired Adam for a very serious matter. He did everything we asked of him and we couldn't be happier as he absolutely exceeded our expectations.

Adam went over and above to vindicate me and clear my name
Adam represented me in a case where I was accused of morally improper conduct. I was determined to fight these allegations because they were false. Out of all the attorneys that I talked to, Adam was the only one that truly listened and understood my situation. I was so happy with the effort that he put into my case in order to clear my name. My life is finally back to normal despite having gone through complete hell with the allegations. I truly appreciated what Adam has done for me and would without a doubt recommend him to anyone in need of a good attorney.

If You Only Knew
I never have needed Adam's services yet I know several people that have. Adam has traveled all over the State just to handle cases for his faithful clients that believe in him and they do believe and trust him whole heartedly. I know Adam personally and know him to be a strong minded person that will fight for what is right. I once had a long conversation with Adam about an issue I had in my past and after talking with him. I wish I would have known him back then. Adam is a great lawyer and a great person to know. If you need a lawyer he is the one to go to.

Need help
I started my case with any attorney that called from someone giving me his card. When I first talked to him he promised me the world making it seem like he would get me out of my criminal case almost next week. So I hired him. Right after I gave him my money his whole attitude changed. Less than a month later he kept telling me it looked like I had to do prison time. I had finally settled with myself that I was going to prison. It was very hard to accept but I came to terms with it. A friend told me to call Adam just for a second opinion so I did as I had nothing to lose. Adam reviewed my case and gave me his thoughts. I was expecting another sales pitch of how he could fix everything but he did not do that. He asked questions and gave me options. He was honest and straightforward and best of all he seemed genuinely energetic to help me. I switched lawyers and retained Adam. In the end he saved me from going to prison. I honestly think it just took a good lawyer who gave it the effort my case needed. Adam was the man for the job.

Falsely Accused
After being falsely accused and dragged through the court system, Adam handled my case with skill and savvy. After a lengthy trial I was fully exonerated. He is masterful in the courtroom and I would highly recommend him. He has been my attorney for several years now and has handled several legal matters for me.
