"With everything to lose I laid my vulnerability in the hands of Bartley Hagerman. I cannot put into words the hard work, dedication, and compassion that I was shown. Bartley was able to help me when the odds were stacked against me. I am beyond grateful!" C. W.
★★★★★
"When my long term disability case got canceled, I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to. Luckily someone I knew recommended Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson. I met up with Mr. Bartley Hagerman and not only did he take my case, he got my long term disability reinstated. He keeps you updated and works hard for you! Highly recommend Mr. Bartley Hagerman at Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson!" D. C.
