Paul Barbour

I will be forever grateful that I learned of the expertise of these fine lawyers. I not only had the best medical malpractice lawyers in the country, but felt the genuine intensity that Chip and Sarah fought for my cause. I also feel like I have made friends. Down to earth and hard working for your cause. I could not have asked for more. They make the process as easy and pleasant as it can be.

Connie Judd

Chip, your passion, frankness and dedication to your clientele is unparalleled. Keep up the good work!

Frank Yancey

Chip and his staff did an excellent job. I would recommend their firm to anyone.Thanks for your advice, services and help in solving our issues.

Russell Bailey

I contacted Wagar Hickman after my original attorney was no longer interested in pursuing my case. Sarah Hickman reached out to me and took time to review my entire file, consult with her expert and go over all of my concerns with me. She was very compassionate and knowledgeable. Other firms I contacted basically cut me off during our conversation and said they couldn't help me. This firm is truly concerned with helping people. They are willing to take on the hard cases against doctors who think they do no wrong. I would highly recommend them!

Lisa Taylor

Chip and Sarah Wagar were an absolute pleasure to work with and they took such good care of us. Naturally they won our case, but it was the way they handled everything that left us feeling not only victorious but finally at peace. I highly recommend their services and commend them for their sincerity, efficiency, and professionalism.

Sacred Earth Bars Team

My experience with your staff and yourself was awesome. From the moment we walked in the office we were treated like family and was made to feel at home. I would highly recommend you and your staff to everyone. Thanks for everything …

Sheryl Fusilier

Mr. Wagar and his associates provided me with phenomenal, incomparable legal support. Given his superior reputation, my expectations of him were high.
