“Your firm has been a great help. I wish everyone in the legal system would be as proficient and courteous as you have been. Hiring your firm has been one of the few bright spots through this whole ordeal because of the dedication you have shown. Thank you and God bless!”

Ryan, Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Client (2014)

“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!”

Eileen, Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Client (2015)

“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.”

AMANDA, Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Client (2015)

“Mr. Mehr was wonderful. He kept me updated at each stage of my case, and took the time to fully explain the law to me. I’m very satisfied with my case result!”

PATTY, Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Client (2011)

“I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful firm. I received the best quality of care during this time. I was heard and respected, and it made all the difference. Regarding legal matters, it is best to work with competent, trustworthy and likable people. If you’re looking for these people, call Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Trial Lawyers!

My first impression of Austin Mehr was a relief compared to previous lawyer ‘interviews.’ Mr. Mehr is approachable, confident, enthusiastic and kind — but most importantly he believed in me and my case. After a brief 30 minute meeting, my search was over. Mr. Mehr was undeniably poised, professional and confident. His research was thorough and timely. When I felt overwhelmed, Mr. Mehr’s courage helped me stay calm and collected. Grace under pressure is vitally important during a lawsuit, and Austin never faltered.

Extra: Austin advised me through a fender-bender incident and paperwork for no extra charge!”

MORGAN, Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Client (2017)

“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.”

EDDIE, Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson Client (2015)

“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!”
