Driven with compassion and results!
Attorney Bagley is one of the best lawyers in the profession. Her professional conduct, perseverance, diligence and compassion helped resolve my case. Attorney Bagley truly listened, understood the details of the case and the complexity of the case. After a bitter divorce and battling on multiple levels, we finally went to trial and her fact finding skills and litigation skills won a 4 year battle. She was very friendly and caring about my case and understood the details which is very critical when presenting facts and litigating in court. She worked very hard on my case and always kept me informed. She was professional, friendly and returned calls promptly. She truly wanted what was in the best interest of my family. She is my guardian angel!

Client Review
After retaining a lawyer that was recommended, after 14 months my divorce and cusotdy case had not made any progress, in fact, it was moving backwards. After interviewing several lawyers I changed council and retained Attorney Bagley. She responded immediately to my calls, and upon our first meeting, put my case in the order it should have been in 14 months prior. Attorney Bagley was always available and very responsive. She was honest with what the expectations of a case such as mine were. I felt a sense of relief each time I met with her, especially when having to appear in court. After just 1 court appearance with Attorney Bagley, my case took a dramatic turn and went from going to trial to being settled in just under 3 months of her representation. She was very respectful of my emotions and what I needed as an outcome while managing to keep both parties grounded and focused. I learned many life's lessons from her in the short time she handled my case. She removed the anger, frustration and difficulties that are inherinate with divorce/custody cases . I continue to rely on her knowledge and expertise in multipe areas of law. Attorney Bagley rises above the difficulties that the parties bring to the table and puts forth a sense of focus while being able to represent her client's best interest with expertise, poise, and compassion. I give Attorney Bagley my highest recommendation without any reservation.
