Testimonials

  • Elizabeth Thornsbury and Bartley Hagerman were truly a blessing to me and my family. I could not have been more pleased with their knowledge and professionalism with my disability claim. The thing that really set them apart from other lawyers I had used was their accessibility. I could call the office and talk to one of them right then, or I would get a call back within the hour. I would recommend them without reservation!

  • When my short term and long term disability benefits were denied Mehr Fairbanks fought on my behalf to get my benefits approved.  If it wasn’t for Bartley Hagerman at Mehr Fairbanks representing me, I’m sure I never would have gotten my disability approved.  I am very happy with the work they did and how they kept me informed every step of the way!

  • We were very happy in the way Mehr Fairbanks represented our car wreck case. Attorney Bartley Hagerman got my family a fair amount and I feel justice was served. Thank you Mehr Fairbanks for all your hard work and time spent.

  • I have worked with Mehr Fairbanks for several years on my case. My attorney, Bartley Hagerman, was very knowledgeable and truthful.  I had many different kinds of legal things we went through, but Mehr Fairbanks was always reassuring and explained things well.  Overall, after dealing with them for several years and them backing me up, things turned out great.  I have and will continue to recommend them.
