Excellent attorney and alot of experience.
This year, on my return from the US, I got some problem. I discussed with him about my case and he gave me all options and their possible results. All because of his wonderful services and experience, not only my case moved to diversion but also was dismissed after a month. I highly recommend Oliver.

Thanks to Oliver, a very stressful situation for my family was handled very quickly and professionally. The outcome was exactly what we hoped for and which Oliver had anticipated. We greatly appreciate the personal attention and advice that resolved our legal issue to our satisfaction.

Very Satisfied customer
I hired Attorney Hadley to represent me in a case. At the time I couldn’t find a lawyer to represent me in my case due to the difficulties that was ahead. My case was different from normal cases but Attorney Hadley gave me confidence that he would do the job after our first meeting in his office. Before I hired Attorney Hadley I pretty much gave up and counted my case as a loss. Attorney Hadley put on the boxing gloves and went to fight for me. I had direct contact with him no secretary or assistant. If I had a question 7, 8, or 9 o’clock in the evening I gave him a call or text and he responded Immediately. I would highly recommend Attorney Oliver Hadley to anyone whom feel like there were treated unfairly by these BIG Inc. company’s.

Satisfied Former Client
I am a satisfied former client of Mr. Hadley's. I experienced discrimination on the job from a former employer. Mr. Hadley looked at the facts, advised me, put in the work and got me a fair settlement. I recommend his services to anyone experiences violations of their rights. Btw, I used to walk to work. Now I drive a Jaguar. Mr. Hadley is the man for the job!

Timely, Hardworking, Results
Mr. Hadley spent hours working through my license suspension that was due to unknown/unpaid tickets. This issue would not have been resolved had I not called upon him to take care of business. He was genuine, friendly, always available and always informative on the next steps, costs etc. Thanks to Mr. Hadley, I received my new license within a week of him working on my case. I will definitely be utilizing Mr. Hadley again if any other issues arise. Thank you!

Great for small businesses
I recently launched my own professional services company and Oliver helped me put together a contract template I could use with my clients. He took the time to learn about my business and crafted a comprehensive contract that was customized to my unique needs. The final product has helped me appear more professional and protect my business as I expand my client base. Plus he's a lot of fun to work with!

Mr. Hadley was easy to deal with, timely, and professional all throughout my case. Being a foreigner I was worried about my immigration status but the case was processed as soon as possible and I was always able to contact Mr. Hadley regarding it. He was always available to answer my questions and I'm glad to have had him represent me. He helped me stay in the country to continue working and for that I am very grateful.

My experience with Oliver Hadley was exactly what I hoped for. He was fast, efficient, and easy to talk to. I felt like he took my case personally and actually cared about what he was writing for. I would definitely use him to represent me again and suggest him to friends and family in the future.

Excellent service from a smart and talented lawyer
I met Oliver several years ago and recently bumped into him in the supermarket and learned he'd started his own firm. When I had a legal matter he was the first person I thought of. He handled my matter with efficiency, intelligence and good humor. Top notch.
