Criminal Defense

When faced with serious criminal allegations, it is vital to have an experienced and trusted lawyer at your side. Our attorneys cooperate and coordinate with an array of criminal-law experts in order to provide guidance and legal advice.

We offer clients the utmost discretion when handling their criminal cases. Our attorneys understand that accidents happen, and mistakes are made. Nevertheless, we believe that offenders often need protection, as well as an opportunity to make reparation, without facing an unjust sentence at the hand of an unsympathetic or crusading prosecutor.

Personal Injury

Our personal injury attorneys represent individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of another's negligence or carelessness. This may include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice and more.

In addition to physical pain and impairment, personal injuries are often accompanied by emotional and financial hardship. They often bring medical bills, loss of work, and increased stress to the lives of you and your loved ones. The Bagley Law FIrm, LLC has the tools to fix these problems.


Child Custody

Child Support


In addition to the emotional aspects of a family's dissolution, there are many important legal and financial issues to consider. We take time to listen and provide an objective assessment of your situation.

We respect and understand the sensitive and all-too-often awkward circumstances that bring our clients to us; the breakdown of a family is difficult and painful for everyone involved.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Legal proceedings often seem overwhelming to those involved. At the Bagley Law Firm, LLC, we understand the difficulties and stress that your legal issues bring, and our team is committed to providing each client with the individual attention, communication, and dedication they deserve.

Our aggressive, disciplined approach to resolving your legal issues will produce the best-possible outcome, while generating the least amount of stress (and legal fees). You will find no stronger advocate as we aggressively stand up and fight to protect your family, finances, and freedom. Simply put, our passion is winning!
