Keeps it real
I didn't want a lawyer that was going to bull$23t me about my chances of getting off on my DUI. He told me that he probably couldn't but there was a chance and that he would do his best. Talk about underselling and overdelivering. We didn't even have a trial. The money I spent was well worth it.
Posted by Shannon | March 29, 2011
Great lawyer
From the first day, Mr. Beck helped calm my fears and went over the facts. He was always honest, helpful and understanding. He was always a phone call away with any questions I had. When we first met, he explained what the possibilities were and what "could" happen. At the end, everything we hoped for was possible because of Mr. Beck. Thank you so much for all of your help!

My Lawyer!
He got me out of a jam a few times. Simple assault he got dropped. Using him for 2 dui and a possession charge. Got me out of a crazy situation today. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an intelligent lawyer who knows how to use their words..I really appreciate everything he's done for me.

Basil D. Beck III
When my boyfriend got caught up in an old probation violation I spoke to many attorneys regarding his case. Basil called me on Super Bowl Sunday and took plenty of time to explain the case. Ultimately, he did exactly what he said he would and got my boy out of jail. Basil appears to have a good relationships with the judges in Montgomery County and has my boyfriend release far sooner than anyone thought was possible. I think when it comes to probation violations, he is the right guy. We were overall satisfied with what he was able to do.

Review Basil Beck
Basil made me feel at ease in his capable hands during a very stressful process. He outlined what I needed to do and navigated me through the process to a successful outcome. I felt I could trust the situation and was in capable hands from start to finish. If he was in court he would always reach me any time of the day.

Professional Attorney
Basil and his office provided excellent service, I am happy that I chose him, the judge mentioned that to me also. He saved me from 5 points on my license, higher insurance premiums, and a few DMV fees. Basil is a top notch attorney for DMV, traffic violations and criminal cases.. He is very highly recommended

The best experience possible
Best lawyer I’ve ever had, not once did he ever ask me to reinform him of my case and he was always communicative about what was going on. In the end he ended up closing my case with the BEST possible outcome. I’d recommend him to ANYBODY that needs a lawyer in the Montgomery County

Hired & was very pleased
Basil, was absolutely fantastic and I would highly reccomend him for anyone in need of a criminal lawyer. I was violated on a technical probation violation and the original lawyer we hired did nothing for my case in over 30 days and my Fiance contacted Basil D. Beck and he took on my case instantly with reasonable cost and he worked diligently and fast to get me in front of the judge to hear my case and helped to get me released. If I would ever have another reason where I would need a criminal lawyer I would chose Basil D. Beck. I am so grateful that he got me back home with my family where I belong. He is amazing at what he does and he definitely means business and that's what I needed.

Does what he says
Basil gets 5 stars because he said what he was going to do , and followed through. I can honestly say I’m so happy I decided to chose him as my representation. Basil saved my job. But! It was extremely difficult to reach Basil in the days prior to my court date. I felt very uneasy and anxious trying to call multiple times to understand my upcoming court proceedings. but at the end of the day the man followed trough on his promises. Thank you sir

Mr Beck is the best
Mr Beck was outstanding!!! My husband needed an attorney fast and one that was well versed in the law, we felt very comfortable and we were kept in the loop all the way through. There were no questions that were too small or outrageous, he answered everything clearly and we were very pleased with the outcome.

Really eased my mind
Explained my situation to Mr. Beck and he assured my that my more serious concerns were unfounded. What I thought would be a long drawn out expensive situation was not. I would retain Mr Basil for any future issues I might have.

The best lawyer in Mont Co!
I originally went with Basil based off of a friends recommendation and I was very pleased with working with him. He was very thorough, professional and put my mind at ease after answering my one million questions. He was able to get me the best case scenario for my situation and even worked with me on a payment plan. It was a smooth and pain free process from start to finish. I would highly recommend him for any situation, his experience and expertise shines through!

Awesome Lawyer
Just got into trouble for the first time in my life, so I had lots of questions. Mr. Beck took time to meet with me multiple times and make sure all of questions were answered. He is a straight shooter, he set up a plan and executed it perfectly. The outcome was exactly what I wanted. Would highly recommend for any case.

Good lawyer
Basil was on top of everything from the day we hired him. We had a very serious criminal case involving drugs and firearms and we definitely needed some serious backup. He fought to get us the best outcome and we are thankful we had him. Very honest and professional throughout the whole case and will not just tell you what you want to hear. He was always prompt with answering any questions I had about anything. I have already referred friends and will continue to do so in the future.
