Best Divorce Lawyer in Miami
Sandy was amazing. Sandy is extremely professional and gets the job done. He listen to me and offered suggestions but understood its my life and ultimately help guide me to the right decisions legally. He not only got my divorce done in only a year, but was there for me the whole way from the first day I stepped into his office through the final judgment and beyond. I am happy to say he is now a personal friend! I can't say enough good things about Sandy and his entire staff. If you need a family or criminal lawyer I would give Sandy strong consideration as he knows what he is doing!!

Strong, Knowledgeable, and Compassionate
Sandy Becher was absolutely awesome! He stood up for my rights with great strength, genuine interest and compassionate personality. He took the time to explain all my questions, and he always responded my messages and emails promptly. He treats you as person, and he welcomes the client involvement. I wanted to be directly involved in every single detail of my case. When your emotions are running high and you feel vulnerable, especially in family matters, it is priceless to have a strong and knowledgeable Lawyer on your side. It was piece of mind, and I got everything I wanted on my case. Simply the Best!

The Goat (Greatest Of All Time)
Sandy took over my case since i had to fire my previous attorney on file for not getting results. He quickly got me visitation unsupervised outside of the court house with only being on the case 2 weeks!! (My previous attorney was on file for 10 months prior & couldnt achieve this) He's a true professional and a no nonsense attorney that will fight for your rights as a parent, He's also very well known and likeable which helps tremendously. Id give him 10 stars if i could THANK YOU SANDY

Sandy was there for me every step of the way. He was available to answer any questions or concerns whenever I had them. Before he was hired he told me exactly what he would do for me and what the outcome of the case would be, and that is exactly what happened. Would recommend to everybody and anybody looking for an attorney that gets the job done.

I honestly do not know where I would be today without Mr. Sandy Becher's help. His depth of knowledge, sympathy and complete professionalism helped me navigate a very difficult situation and made sure my interests were incredibly well taken care of. He made himself available to me pretty much 24/7, guided me through some tough decisions and helped me get to a result that was fair and to my absolute satisfaction. I would not hesitate for a second recommending Mr. Becher to any of my friends or family! Sincerely, Fredrik Andersen

Trusted Represetation
Mr. Becher was the attorney who protected my legal and financial rights. I had replaced my initial attorney with the representation of Mr. Becher and can not be happier that I made such a wise choice. I highly recommend his practice and representation!

Ultimate divorce arttorney
If you are looking for an attorney that truly understands the family law and relentlessly pursuing best interest of its clients, look no further than Mr. Sandy Becher. My divorce was shaping to be a long dreadful road of misery, depositions, forensic accounting and immeasurable aggravation but with Mr. Becher's knowledge, experience and family law expertize, a day scheduled for a deposition turned out to be the day of settlement and one could not ask for a better ending. Especially knowing that the first mediation was a complete fiasco under misguidance of Mr. Becher's predecessor that I had release immediately thereafter. Settling out of court brought a relief and peace to me and my loved ones that have been suffering for well over a year since the divorce process has started. Mr. Becher was an absolute God's gift and meeting him was a perfect timing to resolve my case. Besides being extremely aggressive and sharp attorney, he was able to quickly isolate the facts of the case and focus on what is important. His professional demeanor coupled with wicked but soothing and defusing sense of humor will make you feel very comfortable in a complex maze of family law and legal obstacles ahead. I highly recommend Mr. Becher's services to anyone seeking a seasoned and dedicated divorce attorney.

Excellent lawyer
i got a recommendation from a friend to talk to Sandy. I was nervous and scared about my situation. I remember the day I walked into his office...he was so cool and friendly. We talked for a long time. He made me feel so comfortable, and I knew he would be the man to help me out. I hired him that day, and since that day this man has been my rock! I can call him at any time, any day and he answers. I have so much love for everything he has done for me! Whatever your situation is, he seems to have a good answer. I feel like his heart is in everything he does and he really cares for his clients. Hiring a lawyer, whatever your situation may be is scary, but i assure you Sandy makes it feel like everything's going to be ok. And it probably will be with him behind you.
