A well-known face in local courthouses has moved his office to downtown Hudson.
Attorney Adam VanHo has opened an office in the Margaret Clark Morgan Building in downtown Hudson. VanHo Law focuses on family law, criminal and DUI defense and civil litigation. VanHo hopes to expand to serving the legal needs of entrepreneurs in the near future.
"I'm excited to return to Hudson," said VanHo, who lived in there while he was a prosecutor in Summit County. "People in northern Summit County and southeastern Cuyahoga County have been complaining that there was not a variety of legal options for attorneys, especially in the field of family law and criminal and DUI defense. I'm hoping to make it easier for families and individuals to get the legal assistance they need."
VanHo is an experienced attorney who has handled thousands of cases around Ohio. He has handled a number of high profile cases as both a prosecutor and private-practice attorney, and has served as a legal commentator for various media outlets.
Prior to opening VanHo Law, he worked at two Akron-based law firms.
He also served as an assistant ohio attorney general under three attorneys general and an assistant prosecuting attorney in both Summit and Montgomery counties. He has also been appointed a special prosecutor, and is certified by the Ohio Supreme Court to represent indigent defendants in capital cases at both the trial and appellate levels.
In January, VanHo was admitted to practice before the International Criminal Court. The Netherlands-based court handles war crimes and other crimes against humanity. Prior to VanHo's admission, there were fewer than 700 attorneys admitted worldwide to represent defendants and victims of crimes before the Court. Of those 700 attorneys, less than 70 are from the United States none from Ohio.
VanHo is licensed to practice in all courts in Ohio; the United States District Courts for the Northern and Southern District of Ohio; the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit; the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces; and the United States Supreme Court.
VanHo is a graduate of Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania and the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University.
