Mike has helped our real estate firm as well as clients with their real estate law needs. He is very responsive and fair. I would recommend him to anyone who needs real estate law services in Florida.

I've known and worked with Mike several times over the past decade. I always find him to be a man of integrity and compassion. He is a very sincere person with a passion to help any way he can. He has appeared very knowledgeable in all areas that I have dealt with him in. I would personally recommend Mike to anyone seeking legal council.

I have had the pleasure of Michael Hagen's excellent legal assistance.
I have had several occasions to call on his legal expertise. Even though there have been times when what I needed was somewhat outside of what he would consider his legal specialty, he has risen to the occasion so thoroughly. I have found that he deals with my concerns compassionately, and with sincerity as if they were his own. Legal issues are so much more often than not a time of difficulty in a person's life, and the need for someone that you feel is identifying with your problem to the point that they will represent you like it is THEIR own case to win or lose is ultimatly what is key in being successful. Too many lawyers look upon clients as a paycheck. Mike is always willing to go the extra mile. There truly is something to be said for that kind of integrity.
I would recommend his services with the highest regard.

We would definitely hire Mike Hagen to do our real estate legal work again. In fact, we are still using him now!!
My wife and I hired Mike Hagen to represent us through a complex situation that involved many different legal matters such as bankruptcy, foreclosure, attempted loan modifications, short sales, as well as a mediation with one of the multiple lenders involved in this matter. Mike was able to handle all of these matters and was great to work with. He explained in detail the nuances of each situation; and more importantly listened to our concerns as each situation presented itself.

I do not live in Florida and I needed an attorney to execute a Summary Administration. They were very helpful and was able to help me with what I needed.

I have had the opportunity to work with Mike and his team on several cases and I recommend him highly. In addition to being easy to work with, his body of experience and no nonsense approach is a great combination when you need to get important things accomplished.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working alongside with Mr. Hagen for an extended period of time in the co- representation of the Lee County, Florida, Property Appraiser. Mike has demonstrated a wide array of talents and his diligence shines brightly in everything he does. I have found Mr. Hagen to also be extremely professional and ethical in all of his dealings in and out of the courtroom. I would hire Mr. Hagan if I needed an attorney to handle a real estate matter for me in Southwest Florida. Mark
