I recently went thru a nasty divorce. Autumn may be expensive, but you definitely get your money's worth. She has a suburb memory and proved she was up for the challenge. I was blindsided by the divorce and could not believe how ugly it can get. She taught me some ways of how to handle the "X", which I still use to lower the stress level. Let's face it, if you have kids involved, you still have to deal with the "X". I would definitely recommend her. I read other reviews of attorneys and heard how some didn't remember anything about your case when representing you in front of the judge. Not Autumn, she was so good, that near the end, she didn't need any files, she knew my case frontwards and backwards. She was also very easy to get in contact with after hours when issues developed. She has my recommendation. She is an excellent attorney.

Autumn and her associate Meredith helped me through the most painfully stressing time of my life. I have read many instances on how messy and revengeful divorces can be. This was not my experience at all, I was so thankful for Autumn and Meredith's commitment to my case and more importantly to me as a person. They were always calm, professional, and reassuring throughout the entire process of my case. They always made me feel informed and empowered, keeping the best interest of my family at the forefront. They were sensitive, thoughtful and detailed. The amount of time spent with me even during my consultation was very impressive and comforting. It was then that I knew I had found a firm that was knowledgeable, professional, and down to earth; the perfect combination to get me through this devastating and life changing event.

I hired Autumn to help me through my divorce. I found her on AVVO and thought that she sounded too good to be true. She felt that my case would not be difficult as there was abuse involved, lots of evidence, and everything would work out in my favor.
It wasn't long before there was a disaster. Autumn was very condescending to me the few times that I got to speak with her once things went south. I had to move out of my house, as my husband would not move out, and the abuse to both me and my children was getting worse and worse. She wrote in an email to me that she would have my husband out of my house within 3 weeks. Later she denied sending me the email and a mediation date was set for 4 months later. I asked where my kids and I supposed to stay for 4 months and was told that 4 months wasn't that long of a time period.
I contacted an attorney friend of mine, who recommended another divorce attorney. That is where I am now, and I feel like progress is being made.
I had given Autumn a large retainer and Autumn managed to bill me for all but a few dollars of the retainer after only attending the initial hearing and setting up mediation. I felt like she billed me for anything she could think of just to keep the retainer money.
I think that Autumn would be fine for an uncomplicated divorce but she wasn't skilled enough to handle mine.

Divorces are scary, life changing events. Even worse when they involve children. Mrs. Beck represented me during my divorce, and to say I'm grateful to her, Meredith, and the rest of her staff, would be a complete understatement. My initial consultation with Autumn, she showed herself to be very personable, professional, honest and confident, all which gave me much needed hope going into my divorce, and she never wavered throughout.
I couldn't ask for a better lawyer or firm to have represented me.
My divorce is final now, and there is no other lawyer i would have rather had representing me than her.

I recently completed divorce litigation with Autumn Beck representing me
Ms Beck's outstanding verbal presentation of her resume outlining relevant education , training and experience coupled with her personable demeanor made my initial interview with her reasonably comfortable given the circumstances. She utilized pointed fact finding skills to identify all issues and laid out all likely outcomes while determining how best to represent me on each issue, while pointing out how the opposing attorney might likey approach the same topic, all with the end in mind of achieving a fair and reasonable conclusion to a difficult time in my life , while ensuring my rights as a good parent were preserved
I found both her and her paralegal Meredith, business minded keeping time spent on the case limited to its essential needs controlling my costs, while still addressing the human aspect.
During deposition her questions were direct, on target and fact founded with information acquired during the interview and affidavit processes. I was particularly impressed with her litigation and trial skills which came into light while digging to the root of the issues past emotional responses and dispatching those issues.
I without a doubt made the correct choice in selecting her firm to represent me in my set of circumstances, and am grateful for her achieving a fair and reasonable outcome for both my children, my former wife and myself
Autumn has earned my confidence and respect neither of which I give easily. I without hesitation recommend her to anyone during the stressful time of divorce proceedings who desires a fair conclusion.

Autumn is responsible for a life altering changes in my family life. Her diligent work has allowed me to regain visitation rights with my sons when they were nearly non-existent prior to retaining her as an attorney. She and her staff were extremely professional throughout the process including the mediation. She's direct with expectations and will advise you of realistic outcomes, and she is relentless with her pursuit of claiming and/or reclaiming your rights. She has indeed changed, in some significant measure, my perception of attorneys. I will always be grateful and indebted to her for making my situation change for the better. I highly recommend her.

Seven years after their divorce, my wife's ex-husband tried to sue for custody of their two children. We were scared and we hired Autumn based on a referral from a trusted friend. Autumn took our case and was very reassuring that there was little chance for us to lose the kids. During the process, she made sure to include us in any correspondence between herself and opposing council. She always let us know about her pleadings and filings with the court with a thorough explanation about the strategy behind her decisions. There was a lot of legal jargon that we did not understand, but Autumn would always provide clarification, usually within 24 hours of our asking. By the time we made it to depositions, her confidence in the case had grown. Mediation was only a couple of days later and she was ready to play hard-ball. She gave us an outline of what she thought would be our worst case scenario. When we saw that the demands of the Respondent exceeded this, she did not hesitate to take the case to trial. When we went to trial, we discovered that not only was she correct but she even got us an increase in child support which we were not expecting. After the trial we felt like an enormous weight had been lifted off our shoulders, but Autumn wasn't finished. Due to our financial circumstances she filed to have the Respondent pay for our attorney's fees. She tried to offer a settlement for $5,000 but it was rejected by the other party. We were glad because when the judge heard her argument we were awarded 75% which totaled approximately $16,000! The case lasted for over a year. At every turn she exceeded our expectations and did so with class and humility. We later found out that while handling our case, she was being faced with her own personal tragedy. We would have never known by the way she dealt with our case. She would have easily been justified in putting off any number of deadlines or hearings, but she didn't. Without a single complaint she stayed the course and made our case a priority. We felt like she took personal interest in our case and at no time did we feel like "just another client". In many ways she became like a part of the family. We are very grateful for the hard work and dedication she showed us and we will be eternally grateful for helping keep our family in tact.

I know Autumn personally and professionally. Autumn is 100% committed to her clients and I have never seen an attorney so dedicated to their clients in my past 25 years in the legal field. She is very active in the community, always has a smile on her face, and is extremely knowledgable in her expertise. I would highly recommend Autumn.
