Best Lawyer Ever
I hired Eric Hagen for a protection order matter and he absolutely rocked it. It was very short notice and he was quick, friendly, personable, and compassionate. My order did get granted and I do owe that to him. Following the approval Eric sent me an email congratulating me yet also being kind and reminding me that I don’t have to deal with people who don’t want my help. It brought tears to my eyes in the best way. Thanks Eric!

Mr. Hagan's Ability to Handle Class 1-3 Misdemeanor Related Charges
I cannot recommend Mr. Hagan highly enough. I recently found myself in some legal trouble after a traffic incident, and I was facing both a moving violation and a misdemeanor charge. I was very anxious about the situation especially once the court/prosecutor raised my charges, but Mr. Hagan immediately put me at ease. He took the time to carefully explain the law and possible penalties I was facing. He outlined several strategies for my defense, along with the pros and cons of each. Ultimately, we decided on an approach that focused on taking responsibility while also providing context for my actions. Mr. Hagan handled every aspect of my case with the utmost professionalism and expertise. He worked tirelessly reviewing evidence, preparing legal documents, and developing testimony. His deep knowledge of the law and attention to detail were invaluable.

Best Lawyer in Town!
Eric was extremely helpful with my case. He was patient while I told him my story as he was very understanding and I could tell that he cared. I could also tell that he knew his stuff which made me feel very comfortable with him on my side. If I have any troubles in the future, Eric will be the first person I call.

He really is the best!
After many years of feuding with the St Paul PD and their buddies, I was charged with terroristic threats. Thanks to Eric I was able to get my life back, and it was reduced to a misdemeanor. If you are up against impossible opponents, he is who you need defending you!!!

Candor, Commitment, Courage & Competence
Mr. Hagen, Eric, has resolute courage. He is determined in his principle to represent you, not as just a client, but as a person. He puts himself in your shoes and thereby has a clear sense of direction to plot a solution for a resolve. Mr. Hagen, Eric, takes point in your legal battle. I had received a call in the middle of the night that my son was arrested. He told me he did nothing wrong. I tried to install confidence in my son telling him… We’ll get through this, but I was concerned. As I searched for an attorney one came to the top…Eric Hagen. He was a person first, an attorney second. He was a professional who not only did his job, but he cared about my son and instilled a confidence in him during this period. This type of intangible speaks volumes. Mr. Hagen’s dedication is built upon Candor, Commitment, Courage and Competence. His character is built from valor. These attributes set him apart from other attorneys that practice law. His due diligence is persistent in the pursuit of justice. He remains focused on the objective…to win your case and restore your rights. There were two battles that faced my son…Mr. Hagen achieved the objectives in both cases…a win. The highest accolade I could give Mr. Hagen is ….I’d take a bullet for him. I strongly recommend that when life throws you

Eric Hagan esq.
Eric handled my situation quite skillfully. He was able to get to the bottom of things and resolve the issues without having to go to court. He was always very quick to respond to my questions.

Highly recommend
I hired Eric and his team that included Mallory Hughes and Broderick. It was a difficult Federal case. Looking at 13-15 and got 8.5 which was a victory. BUT the key was the experience Eric provided. Emotional support/empathy is the #1 thing I hadn’t thought about before inquiring about lawyers. BUT I learned how VITAL that was for my family and my mental well-being. Eric absolutely provided emotional support and extremely timely responses to phone and text questions. Not only recommend for results, but for the KEY emotional support they provide and the empathy for what myself and my entire family goes through in a criminal proceeding.

Couldn’t ask for a better lawyer.
In 2022 I was arrested in Nebraska on 2 felony charges and an infraction. I hired Eric Hagen at Berry law Firm with no knowledge of how the law, court, or lawyers worked as I’ve never needed one. From the moment I hired Mr.Hagen, he thoroughly went over all the aspects of my case including how things work, what to expect, and what his plan was. He worked diligently on my case and kept me informed even though I live out of state, all the way in oklahoma. A year later, I am walking away with 2 misdemeanors and no jail time. I know for certain I would not have received the outcome I did had I not had Mr.Hagen and his team working my case. I would give 100 stars if I could. I hope I never need to, but if I needed a lawyer again I would without a doubt rehire. I whole heartedly recommend Eric, his team, and his law firm to anyone seeking legal advice or council.

Case Dismissed
Mr. Hagen and his core team did a fantastic job of gathering information and detailed specifics to assist in the dismissal of my case! I will be forever grateful to him and the members of BERRY Law Firm. There were there with any of my questions, and were polite and kind. They also were able to provide me with a sense of well being, even with the anxiety I was facing due to the charges that were brought against me! Again, GREAT MAN to work with...Would recommend 10/10
