While in law school, Mr. Hadi interned with The Gutierrez Law Firm, a prominent personal injury law firm in South Texas, under the guidance of Baldemar Gutierrez. In this position, he learned the tools in order to best represent clients of personal injury claims; the need to vigorously advocate for injured clients while protecting their best interest-the experience at this internship provided the framework for The Hadi Law Firm.

As a dedicated intern at The Gutierrez Law Firm, Mr. Hadi demonstrated an equal commitment to his studies allowing him to obtain enough credits in advance of his graduating class in order to sit for the February 2009 Texas Bar Exam. Upon passing the bar exam and earning his license to practice law from The State of Texas, Mr. Hadi founded The Hadi Law Firm. From the day of injury until the final settlement, Mr. Hadi provides knowledge, efficiency, and individualized attention to each client’s case.
