Mr. Hagen Provided the Legal Support I Needed
Mr. Hagen helped me navigate through a divorce after being married for 20+ years. He explained all potential outcomes and how he would help in each scenario. I left after our first meeting feeling like I had someone who was truly interested in helping me through this process and not just there to collect a retainer and file paperwork. I would highly recommend Mr. Hagen and the Collierville Law Firm to anyone needing an attorney that will be honest and supportive of your situation.

Divorce Representation
I was recommend to this law firm from a friend. They were helpful in answering all of my questions and putting me at ease as I was going through my divorce proceeding. We reconciled and the divorce proceeding were put on whole. I was please so much so with the initial service that I hired this firm again in my divorce proceeding two years later. I would recommend this firm to anyone who may be in need of some legal representation.

GETS THE JOB DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!
I cannot praise Mr. Hagan and Ms. Baker enough for solving a real family crisis! Bill Hagan is single-handedly RUINING Lawyers' bad reputation! He and Ms. Baker got us through a difficult Termination of Parental Rights and Adoption Case professionally and empathetically. They knew what needed to be done from the very beginning and followed through with NO SURPRISES! I was very impressed with the way they coordinated everything though the Court so both Appearances went quickly and exactly as planned. We felt that the charges for their service were VERY reasonable and far less than what we had originally estimated. Mr. Hagan and Ms. Baker are a JOY to work with and EARNED our complete trust and confidence!

Wonderful lawyer!
Mr. Hagan was such a huge help to me in my divorce. I needed to relocate to another state and wanted primary custody, and he made everything happen. He and Ms. Baker were great about answering my many questions and emails, and our divorce was finalized in under seven months. He even asked the judge to allow us to have our divorce hearing over Zoom, since I am living in another state. I could not have made it through such an emotionally painful time without his objectivity and counsel.

Excellent
I am so appreciative of the person that recommended Mr. Hagan to me. He was with me every step of the way. He told me best case and worst-case scenario, he aimed for the best case scenario, and he did not miss! I promise if you need a attorney, you will not be disappointed!! He has a wonderful paralegal in Brenshevia. Whenever I needed something, she was there if he wasn’t available. They are a great team!

Fantastic Attorney!
Mr. Hagen went above and beyond to help me with a very difficult legal matter. He was able to resolve my case very favorably when all indicators pointed otherwise. It was very evident that he truly cared about my situation and did everything to make sure the successful outcome of my case was a priority. I cannot thank him enough for getting me through this!

Divorce
Mr Hagan and his staff have been so supportive during my challenging separation and soon divorce. Both Mr Hagan and Brenshevia have been understanding, trustworthy, and compassionate towards me and my two girls. I believe they have worked diligently and have been committed to my case. I thank the Lord that He led me to this firm and recommend this firm to people going through the challenges of divorce.

Divorce Case
Mr. Hagan was a calm and steady hand in the midst of a very difficult time for me. He set out a plan and helped us adhere to it. While it is always an expensive proposition to hire an attorney, he was and is a fair, reasonable, and honest man that I greatly respect. I would send anyone in need to him without question.

Great for dual military divorce
Mr. Hagan was extremely professional and was very friendly throughout the process. His staff was amazing brenshevia was very knowledgeable of everything needed and guided me in the right direction to have all the proper forms that we would require for custody, property and overall divorce. He worked great with me and it was a reasonable price. No complains they were super organized throughout the whole process answered any questions that I had right away and worked with my work schedule when I needed to meet them. Not once did I have to worry about the case they had it all under control and made sure I wasn't gonna get screwed over in the divorce.

Expunged Case
Attorney Hagan did an excellent job of showing up in court and doing his job. He communicated as well as his office whenever we had questions or concerns. He did a great job in representing our case. I would most definitely recommend him to family and friends in time of need.

Highly Recommneded for Represenation
Mr. Hagan represented me in a litigation case. He was extremely professional and has a very sharp ability to focus on key issues that supported my case. He did not back down from the opposing side and proved points to ultimately win the case when I had been told by others that I would not win. I highly recommend Mr. Hagan for any legal matter as he is sharp, keeps time/fees reasonable and highly successful with the cases he takes.

Divorce Case
Mr. Hagan was a good fit for the aspects of my divorce case. He gave great advise and never wasted my time. He was sensitive to my religious perspectives. Early on he had me list out what was most important to me and that is what we fought for, and won. He outlined all options pushed for what he believed was best but respected my overall decision. Bren was a great comfort and I had all confidence in their work.
