Mr. James Hagan is a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Although, there is no winner in family law I felt the truth came out and that was do to Mr. Hagan litigation experience. He works with a seasoned legal assistant whom was available for any questions or concerns I had. Thanks Laurice & Mr. Hagan for all the excellent work!
Excellent attorney and incredibly versatile. He took care of my divorce with precision, directness and focus on, my, his clients best interests, even when I was not quite clear as to what that meant at the time. He definitely knows how to handle himself in a courtroom. He takes care of my extended family's various legal issues with great professionalism. I have, and will continue to recommend him. A true representation of the "Tao of Lawyering" would be my moniker for him.
James and Laurice are an exemplary team! My case was not only lengthy but also went to a 3 day trial. James' knowledge of the law and his positive presence in the courtroom was beyond impressive. He fought for the truth and the truth was finally revealed. Laurice is diligent and extremely detailed-oriented 🙂 They are both great people and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience with them!
The odds were against me. There were too many individuals that wanted to see me go down. Wanting to see me crumble with no bright future and nothing to my name. Why? Because that's what they were saying...lies. Fragmented lies to prospectively ruin me. Of course the truth prevailed and James A. Hagan proved that. He proved that to the jury...he proved that to the judge and left the other side speechless with nothing left to say. My attorney James A. Hagan respects the truth and proves it. Today I am so much more happier with my life and am so grateful to have had him represent me. He knows the law, has knows strategies and by all means will never let you down. Yes...he's that good. I highly recommend him and will continue to have him as my personal lawyer if trouble should ever find me again. I hope not! If so...my mind is at ease knowing that I have him because he is the best.
I was referred to Mr. Hagan by a friend. I have used other attorneys and they were never effective. I have a "high-conflict" divorce and custody case. 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.”
