Estate details were handled very well and all legal issues were explained and carried through with expert care and advice. I would definitely use Mr. Beyer again.
Very Good Lawyer. Mr. Beyer made me feel very safe while helping me to with my estate planning. He was professional and very experienced. I will recommend him to my friends.
Definitely Recommend. Russell Beyer, Esq. was professional, knowledgeable, and completed our legal problems with excellent solutions in a timely manner.
I am a Divisional Director of a NYSE 4B company and I am telling you...you are in good hands with Mr. Beyer.
I hired this lawyer through Hyatt Legal Services and I regret it. When I talked to him briefly on the phone he said he would review a real estate contract. I was told that he would review the contract but he would first need a retainer of $795 (3 hours) and any unused funds would be returned. Because I was travelling my girlfriend dropped off the check, which he referred to as the "most important part" in the beach wear that he was wearing. Very unprofessional; I wish I had seen that, otherwise I would have gone elsewhere. Anyhow, I talked to him 3 days later and he gave me generalities for answers. The fact that his vague answers made me suspicious that he hadn't read an important 2 page document. He said no, he never recieved that document and that it would cost me a lot more if he had to read it. I know exactly what was dropped off. Disgusted I decided to go ask another lawyer from whom I had a much better experience.
A few days later I contacted Russel about the final bill and he said as a courtesy to me he hadn't prepared one and that all 3 hours had been used up. He claimed the actual bill was 4.5 hours and I never even got to meet with him as he was on vacation. Russ was absolutely unprofesional and he clearly took advantage of me and the situation.
