Practice areas
  1. Corporate and incorporation
    I enjoy forming businesses for clients, including corporations, partnerships, and LLCs.

    25 years, 150 cases

  2. Aviation
    I am a licensed pilot with a passion for aviation law. I represent survivors and surviving family members in plaintiff's cases involving aviation accidents. I also represent aircraft owners, FBOs, and other persons and individuals generally involved in both general and commercial aviation.

    25 years, 50 cases

    I represent individuals and businesses in virtually any commercial transaction or dispute, including leases, licenses, sales, liens, business entity formation, etc.

    25 years, 250 cases

  4. Intellectual property
    I handle significant Patent litigation (including high tech) as well as Trademark and Copyright registration and litigation.

    25 years, 25 cases

  5. Personal injury
    I handle most any type of personal injury dispute, though I prefer to focus on catastrophic injuries.

    25 years, 175 cases

  6. Wrongful death
    I represent the survivors of those whose family members (spouses, children, parents, and sons and daughters) were killed as a result of the negligence of someone else.

    25 years, 30 cases

I am passionate about vindicating people's rights, whether in closely-held business disputes (aka, "business divorces"), aviation, personal injury/wrongful death, or intellectual property litigation (including patents).  I am down to earth, yet I understand and can communicate about even highly-technical subjects.  I practice with utmost integrity and respect for my clients.  I'm not here to make my career off of your case -- I am here to solve your problem as efficiently as possible with your full input.  I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your case with you.


Personally, I enjoy SCUBA diving, equestrian activities, camping, quad riding, and aviation.  I have a wife and two young sons who are the light of my life.

Professional, Efficient Lawyer
I contacted several attorneys with a rather unique and somewhat challenging business legal issue involving the purchase of a former company that I owned. Mr. Hager was the only attorney who actually even took the time to respond and find out the exact details of my case. Within days, Brett had begun to research my case and began contacting most of the parties involved. He has been quick to respond to my inquiries and has been very good at keeping me up to date on the status of my case. My overall case time has been only a few months and Mr. Hager was able to reach negotiations without having to incur litigation costs and court fees. With Mr. Hager's legal expertise and efficient negotiating skills, the conclusion to my case is favorably on my side. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. I would highly recommend Brett Hager from Sanders & Parks to anyone needing professional, effective legal services. Jennifer P. Desert Hills, AZ

Review of Brett M Hager
Brett responded to my email and we have exchanged several emails. I would have rated Brett Excellent in all area except that we have not had that much interaction to date. Brett did offer alternatives other than hiring a lawyer which I did appreciate.
