I endorse this lawyer. Although I am a little biased, Beau does an excellent job on his cases. He is thorough to a fault. He researches and contemplates his cases like no other attorney that I know. He practices in the area of criminal law, probate and real estate/contract law. I would not hesitate to hire Beau.
