I have used Beau for a few different family matters, with each case Beau has help me out in so many ways I lost count. Because of Beau and his amazing work, knowledge and dedication, I now have full legal and physical custody of my four children from my previous marriage. He has helped my family through many hard and difficult time, and through each has always been there believing in us.
Beau had stood by my side and had never doubted me as a father while never giving up on my children and family. He ensured that not only my interest but also those of my children were looked after. Beau was a strong advocate of mine throughout the whole process never giving up or giving less than 100%.
Beau has always been there for us when we needed him. He would explain to us the situation in details, give us our options, and give us counsel. Then no matter the decision we made Beau would stick behind it and us and fought to make it a reality.
Beau is both a remarkable attorney and he is a phenomenal individual. I say this because after everything Beau had done for my family and me in the court room, he even honored us by marrying us. We consider Beau a part of our family now and realize that we are together because of him and his extraordinary efforts in the court room. I would recommend Beau without hesitation.

I used Mr. McGraw to assist me in various business matters, including amendments to my business, incorporation issues and rental agreements. He always returned my calls promptly and had a wonderful way of explaining complicated details in a very uncomplicated manner. He made me feel comfortable and knowledgeable regarding my case and my own business. He also drafted all of my estate planning documents and was of tremendous help to me and my family in this regard. I would definitely recommend Mr. McGraw to anyone looking for a good attorney.

Beau helped me to win an issue in court on where my daughter would be attending school last fall. My daughters mother wanted her in a school over 50 miles away where she lives. Which means I would become an every other weekend dad. Up until this point I was seeing my daughter all the time. Beau fought to keep a daughters dad in her life (like I had been up to this point). He responded to every email, every phone call in a super timely fashion. He was extremely knowledgable on every aspect of my case. He is a great person and a great trustworthy attorney- which are hard to find in an attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney. I've used him before this case, and I will be his client for life based on all the great things he has done for me legally. He is the best in the twin cities! Reliable, trustworthy, extremely attentive to detail and great in court! Attorneys don't get any better than Beau D. McGraw.

Beau Mcgraw did not put any effort in to my case. He never gave legal advice regarding any of my options. It is only now after my case is finished that I realize how many avenues were closed off because he never took the time to discuss them with me.
He routinely took weeks to return emails and phone calls. I was forced to make many decisions on my own because my attorney could not be contacted.
Probably the worst thing about this attorney was the amount of paperwork he failed to file. Hearings would be pushed back because of this. Agreements were entered where I never received my end of the bargain.
You will not see or hear from him except at the courthouse. He will promise you all kinds of things and then fail to file the paperwork to follow through.

Beau was great! From the first time I spoke with him about my child custody case I felt empowered. I had been with a different atttorny who made me feel quite the oppisite. In fact told me I had very little chance of getting what I waned from my ex husband as we dsputed child custody and support. Beau told me different! He made it clear to me what we could do to win our case and we did!!!! He tuely changed mine and my sons life!

Beau consistently took weeks to return phone calls or even emails. Almost every time I called he seemed to be in court. He was almost never available to meet in person. Often the only times I would see him were at court appearances or a half hour meeting a few days before.
He did absolutely nothing to advocate for me or help push my case forward. I recieved no advice about my options.
If you value your family or getting any time with your children at all, you will not go with this Lawyer.

I am a single father of 2 and this all do to mr mcgraws envolment and dedication not just to my case, but also dedication to the cause of keeping my children safe.
When things got out of hand " and they did rather fast" mr MCgraw and his legal team were there to answer questions and advicate for me in channels i did not have access to.
Most of all Beau Daniel Mcgraw never lost faith as to the kind of man/father i am even though no one would hear us out, As he put it " we were in a room screaming the facts and not being heard" MR Mcgraw did not stop screaming until we were heard and that is why my children are safe and know that they are loved and for this i am for ever greatful for Mr Mcgraw and his legal team.

I have used Mr. McGraw for family member needs, business advice and needs and have sent my friends to him. He is top notch in all dealings. After using other attorneys covered by my legal insurance to resolve issues that still haunt me, I resolved to not try to pinch pennies and paid the required fees for representation and have absolutely no regrets. As some of the other reviews have stated sometimes we get impatient and worry that things are not being done fast enough but that is not the case. Beau knows the law, knows the system, and does what is needed at the appropriate time, all of this and resolutions that don't haunt you years later. I most highly recommend Beau McGraw without reservation.

Our family holds Beau McGraw in the highest esteem both professionally and personally. We first retained Beau about eight years ago and since then he has represented family members in over a dozen cases in family, traffic, and criminal defense, all to our satisfaction. We wouldn't think of hiring another attorney after working with Beau. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his excellent and exceptional representation. What sets Beau aside from other attorneys is his personal interest in and strong commitment to his client. When you retain Beau McGraw you are retaining an exceptional attorney who cares about you and is is willing to go the extra mile to keep you informed, listen to you, and give you the best possible defense. He is not only a remarkable attorney, he is also a remarkable man of the highest integrity and professionalism. We recommend him to you without reservation.

Used him for a divorce and paternal support. He does not know what he is doing and couldn't even write the papers correctly. Puts no time into the case and even cancelled a court hearing because he wasn't prepared, without communicating it to me. Retained another attorney who was stunned with Beau's incorrect service and professionalism.
