I was referred to Mr. Hagan by a friend. I have used other attorneys and they were never effective. Mr. Hagan has earned his money with my case and has made movement in my case where others refused to because it was too difficult and did not want the hassle of dealing with opposing counsel's game playing tactics that would drive anyone insane!! Mr. Hagan has stood his ground and after 4 years, I can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. Mr. Hagan does not fight for the unreasonable and he will advise you as such. If you want an attorney that will not sugar coat you to take your money, then he is the one for you. His fees have also been reasonable. In court he is respected by the judge and by other attorneys. Every time we go to court other attorneys have said, "You have a good one." Something I never heard about my previous attorneys. I have a long 13 years to go and Mr. Hagan will be the only attorney I use for my case.
“It is very difficult to find the right words to express how wonderful Attorney James Hagan has been throughout my case. His utmost professionalism, his expertise, his guidance, his caring and his tough stance gave me the strength to see me through what can only be described as one of the worst and ugliest times of my life. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone that wants an attorney that cares about the outcome, that puts faith in his client's words and fights for what is right. He is amazing and my gratitude cannot be emphasized enough. If you are in litigation, James Hagan is THE attorney to have on your side.
“Excellent attorney and incredibly versatile . . . the ‘Tao of Lawyering’ would be my moniker for him.
