Trust this firm...
Brian and his firm have represented me on a number of issues, both personal and professional. I can't say enough good about the quality, professionalism and reasonable fees. This firm is my "go-to" firm for all my needs.

Services Worth Every Penny
Brian is straightforward, professional, intelligent, and presents the facts up front. I highly recommend Brian. I am a father with full parenting time. This was contested by my ex-wife. After a CFI, we came to an agreement that left me with full parenting time and full legal decision-making rights for the children, with Brian's help. His knowledge of the law is unmatched, in my opinion. Brian is not afraid to fight for the best interests of children. Again, I highly recommend Brian to anyone who needs legal advice and counsel. You get what you pay for; Brian is expensive, but his fees were worth every penny.

Contientious, cost-effective representation
Scott Melin was my attorney at Bagley Law Firm. He did an amazing job ! At my initial consultation with Brian Bagley I was very impressed with his family-oriented approach and super practical advice on how to handle my impending divorce. He said something to the effect of, "My clients end up spending more money when they don't take my advice," then advised me of a strategy to initiate separation proceedings. He also gave me some great advice for if I wanted out right away, or to move to a different state, but I didn't want that at the time. I didn't take his advice and tried to repair my doomed marriage and two months later found myself back at the Bagley Law Firm with a Protection Order issued against my husband. Scott Melin was appointed to be my attorney, and he did a fantastic job. His advice on maintaining my position while at the same time trying to create a long-term solution to our parenting issues was invaluable. I appreciated the way he helped me keep my retainer from being used up in silly arguments, and gave me piece of mind when I was feeling frustrated or angry. Bagley Law Firm did a great job of keeping my husband and I's relationship from devolving irreparably, which is great because we have children and will be talking to each other for many years to come.

Caring, Honesty, Respectable
Brian Bagley and Paige Gleason were an amazing asset to our case. We went to them for support in trying to resolve custody issues and we knew the minute after our consultation that they were going to be the best ones for us. They both were so caring and invested in our case we couldn't imagine going anywhere else and having any better result. Brian handled our case with the up most respect and never gave us false hopes. He also was very resourceful and very on top of how it was best to handle the case. Brian handled our case with honesty and never once stooped to the low level of integrity as other lawyers. He believed in us and supported us every moment through this long and difficult process. If you are looking for motivated, supportive, resourceful and smart attorney who isn't going to take advantage of you, Brian Bagley is the lawyer you want to go to. We cannot sing his praises loud enough.

Great Experience during a difficult time
Brian Bagley and his law firm helped me file for divorce. My divorce was fairly easy in the fact that my ex and I didn't fight over much or have many shared assets. This law firm allowed me to do as much of the work as possible to save money but also made sure my best interests were always the priority. They followed up with regularly, checked in when needed but did not schedule pointless meetings or phone calls to raise the overall cost. In the end my divorce went smoothly, it was completed in just over 90 days and I received everything I asked for including my property, my retirement, and shared debt responsibility. I would definitely use this firm again and I recommend them on a regular basis. It is a little expensive but comparative and when compared to what could be lost in divorce it was a bargin.

Excellent choice
The Bagley Law Firm helped me through a difficult case involving perception and credibility. It was an overwhelming experience for me and I had a steep learning curve about how the law works but they were patient with me and tried to explain to me as best they cold all the details involving my case. The lawyers who worked on my case were Adam Gleason and Hannah Clark, the former helped with the earlier part of the case and the latter helped me through the hearings. They were very professional, I was satisfied with the result and definitely recommend them.

Took the time to know my situation
The Bagley Law Firm was prompt with seeing me and they discussed my options with compassion and empathy. I was in the middle of a devastating loss - one of my parents had passed from cancer and I am a mother of four school age children. I knew that I needed guidance and support through the entire divorce journey. I had absolutely no idea what to do or where to begin. It was overwhelming. The Bagley Law Firm consists of individuals that took the time to get to know my situation, and as a result of that, offered a strong support system throughout the entire process. From the first consultation to the final moments they remained in close contact, and kept me informed and up to date. Most importantly, they helped me keep it all together!

They Truly Care
The Bagley Law firm has done a great job representing me and doing what’s best for my son. They have been very patient – and persistent – when necessary. They have done whatever is necessary to make sure we got what we need. They have done a great job and have been very thoughtful about what is best for my son and I. They truly care about us, not just as clients, but as people. – Laura

Excellent Represention by Brian Bagley
Very sharp and very insightful. Very fortunate to have him represent my son who could had his life ruined by false accusations. If you need the best representation, without a doubt, it is Brian Bagley!
Posted by Debbie G. | March 12, 2011
Brian did a fantastic job in my divorce. Great Lawyer!!!
Brian was caring and sincere from the beginning of my case. I had interviewed and talked to 7 lawyers before coming to Brian and he was the only one that seemed to really be concerned about what I was going through. Since my husband controlled the finances, he was also willing to initially take my case without a retainer, until my family's finances could get straightened out. Then, once we filed, he kept me informed, was not confrontational with my husband, was respectful and kind towards my children, and really knew what he was doing. After our divorce, my husband even asked me if Brian could handle some legal issues for my husband's business. The whole process went really smooth (which I wasn't expecting). Thank you!!!

Divorce and separation Attorney | Apr 20
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Brian is smart and effective in handling a variety of matters. I met him as opposing counsel on a tough, emotional case involving a parent with drug abuse. Brian cared about the child in that case more than the adults and I have always been impressed by that. Brian works strategically, planning for the end-game, which is where the focus should always be in family cases. I endorse this lawyer."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Apr 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have dealt with Brian as both an opposing counsel and as a mediator in which he represented clients. Besides being smart and experienced, his communication skills set him apart. I am always grateful to be able to work with lawyers who are prepared, and ready to counsel their clients to be reasonable - that's Brian! My experience shows Brian is willing to advise his clients to amicably resolve their matters even when he would financially benefit by going to trial. That's the difference between someone who is merely a lawyer, and someone who is a counsellor at law. That's also the mark of a good lawyer. I endorse this lawyer."

Family Attorney | Jun 19
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I have been working for The Bagley Law Firm since August of 2013. I feel very fortunate that I have the opportunity to learn from and work with Mr. Bagley. Brian is sharp and diligent and has made me a better lawyer. He works incredibly hard for not only his clients and staff, but for his community as well, as a member of the Longmont Chamber of Commerce. As a colleague, Brian makes being at the office fun, and he is always up for a brainstorming session about a thorny legal situation. As an advocate, Brian is patient and consistent, and he keeps his eye on the client's ultimate goals. He is well-respected by the bench and bar alike, and is a valuable member of the local legal community."
Unknown Attorney | May 22
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Mr. Bagley is an experienced, intelligent, honest attorney and is well versed in several practice areas including family law, criminal law, estate planning, business formation, and bankruptcy. Brian uses his exceptional negotiating skills and creative tactics to reach resolutions without the need for court intervention, saving clients unnecessary legal fees. When cases do require litigation, he is a zealous advocate, committed to obtaining the best possible results for the client. Brian is honest with his clients about outcomes and can provide comfort to clients during the difficult times that can come with a difficult legal situation. Because of this, Brian is well respected and has a record of satisfied clients, which is why I highly recommend him to anyone who is need of an attorney."
Commercial real estate Attorney | Nov 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Brian was opposing counsel representing defendants in a complex commercial dispute with multiple parties, diverse and competing interests, and divergent legal theories of recovery and defense. I found Brian to be competent, intelligent, straightforward, and highly professional. Brian's approach to defending the case was a credit to his clients, while at the same time his approach minimized litigation costs for all parties and facilitated the eventual settlement of the case. I gladly recommend his services!"
Family Attorney | Sep 22
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I have had the privilege of working with Brian Bagley on several matters. When I learn that Brian is opposing counsel, to me this means two things: 1. Their client chose an excellent attorney; and 2. My client won't spend money unnecessarily on their case with me answering frivolous and costly motions). Brian is an efficient, honest and diligent attorney who excels at both litigation and negotiation...the two areas that are both critical and lacking in most attorneys. He is a worthy adversary and like-minded in seeking "win-win" scenarios. Brian is the attorney I would call if I needed legal representation."
Family Attorney | Oct 11
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Mr. Bagley is an exceptionally competent lawyer, with great personal skills. I endorse this lawyer."
