5-Star Divorce Lawyer (Children/Business/Real Estate)
Mr Beason came to me as a referral from another lawyer I was working with for the criminal side of my situation. My divorce included 2 small children, 2 homes and 3 businesses. There was a lot to sort through. He took the time to understand how we got here, what my goals were and he went straight to work. One thing you have to understand about Mr Beason is that he will NOT sugar coat anything and, trust me, it was 100% to my benefit. Divorce is serious. Mr Beason's professionalism, experience and sheer heart for his clients kept me on the right track of mental focus and always with a to-do list of what he needed from me. He defended me against hits from the other side that no one saw coming, not even the judge. At some points it was a long waiting game, but that was also strategy that sometimes I didn't see. I trusted him anyway because of the results (and signed court orders) I saw. Like the saying goes, "anything worth having is worth waiting (and fighting) for". Divorce takes work and I promise you Mr Beason worked harder than the multiple divorce lawyers representing my ex. Based on what I saw in the many many hearings we had in Davidson Co, my lawyer knew the law and what to say at the right time, every time. Just as important, he listened to me and took in what I had to say. My concerns and questions were validated, whether relevant or not. It was too easy to worry and be anxious about what was to come in my divorce. Surrounding myself with pros who care like Mr Beason was the best decision I made for my future with my children. The outcome is that I have full custody of my children, full control of the main business, two homes in my name and now the opportunity to move on freely and with confidence into the future. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Gere Beason.

A Man of Integrity
Dealing with troubling times is never easy. Finding an honest attorney is just as hard. However, I was fortunate enough to find Gere! At one point in our mediation, he frequently checked on the opposing counsel and mediator to make sure neither of the two were "burning up the clock". He explained that it was common for mediators to stretch out the time so they could make more. If that doesn't tell you the type of man he is, then I don't know what else could. With the knowledge and expertise Gere brought to the table, he was able to get me everything I asked for! Gere is a true professional to say the least. Because of him, I am able to watch my son grow up before my eyes. What more could a Father treasure? Do yourself a favor and meet with Gere Beason. You won't be disappointed!

He is straight forward about potential outcomes, so you go into your case with your eyes wide open. I can say without a doubt that Gere will do everything he can for your case.

Fair and Knowledgeable
I hired Mr. Beason as my attorney to help with a parenting plan between myself and my child's father. I sat down with Mr. Beason during a consultation, and decided then that I wanted him to represent me. He took time to explain the basics of these situations beforehand, ensuring I knew whether I hired him or not I would have a better grasp on the laws and how to make the decisions I needed to. After hiring, Mr. Beason listened to my story and worked with me and the other party to make this a simple process. I feel if I didn't have the representation from Mr. Beason, my process wouldn't have been as easy. I was confident with everything we worked on and felt like all my concerns were addressed. I highly recommend Mr. Beason if you are looking for an attorney to be fair and knowledgeable in this matter.

My ex-Wife hates him, I loved him
I hired Gere to represent me. My Wife was cheating on me I suspected and we found out. Mr. Beason took her deposition and it was brutal for her. Before that my Wife's attorney was asking me to pay lots of money in alimony and debt. After that deposition, everything changed. They couldn't settle fast enough. That's my experience with Mr. Beason. He was always honest with me even when it wasn't pleasant. I trust him and would hire him again for anything.

My experience with Mr. Beanson was excellent! He is very professional and knowledgeable about the law. Going through a divorce can be really stressful, especially being someone that didn't know much about the legal issues at the time. Mr. Beason throughly explained the process to me. Mr. Beason made sure me and my son were a priority and in good hands because during the time there was a order of protection in place. He would frequently keep me updated and made sure we were on the same page with the divorce process. Mr. Beason was always there to listen whenever I had question that needed to be answered. I never felt hesitant to reach out to him because he was available to me anytime and day. I am highly pleased with the outcome of our case. I appreciate his hard work and kindness. Highly recommend Mr. Beason and couldn't ask for more!

Without-a-doubt hire him
I hired Mr. Beason to represent me on a family law case this year. Throughout the case, he consistently responded to all questions I had thoroughly and promptly. His knowledge of the law is extensive and allowed me to relax and know that I was in fully capable hands. Mr. Beason was easy to talk to and was definitely able to produce results. Needless to say, I was represented very well. I would without-a-doubt hire him again.

I was married for a very short amount of time. Mr. Beason filed papers with the court to protect me and my children. Mr. Beason was easy to talk to and very personable. He negotiated a settlement for over $10,000 from my Husband in a short amount of time. He was voted the #2 attorney in Nashville by the Nashville Scene and I know why!

I hired Mr. Beason when I was going through a very difficult and complicated divorce. Mr. Beason was professional and listened to all of my concerns. I was always able to get a hold of him, even late on a weekend. Mr. Beason truly has a passion for the law and is willing to go above and beyond for his clients. I would highly recommend Mr. Beason. If I need any legal assistance later, I will use Mr. Beason.

Highly recommend!
Mr. Beason is a great attorney and very professional. He was not only my attorney but listened to my problems in one of the darkest times of my life. He was so smart and I was always able to reach him on his cell phone. I was even able to reach him on holidays and weekends when I had problems with custody issues. He took care of me and my young children during my divorce. I would highly recommend him. He isn't just a good attorney but a good person as well.

Great Attorney
Hired Mr. Beason and he made a difficult time in my life much easier. Provided me his cell phone number and I was always able to reach him. I received a great result in my case thanks to him.

If I could give him zero stars I would!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do not waste your money on this man. He does not respond to calls or emails for WEEKS, and is rude when you’re finally able to get ahold of him. You’ll feel like you’re holding his hand the entire time to get him to do his OWN job. His excuse is that he needs patience because of his own personal issues. He was hired 2 years ago to work on this divorce and it is still not final even though all paperwork is done and has been done!! He blames his clients for HIS slow work!!!

Response from Gere Beason October 15, 2022
This comment is misleading. Unfortunately it's difficult to represent people who do not take the advice of their legal counsel and even more difficult when they do not obey court orders. It's important to always keep your attorney informed. I am one of the only attorneys that actually gives their cell phone number to their clients. I am probably the easiest attorney to reach. And as they say, "no good deed goes unpunished" I attempted to try to not charge this particular client as I was sensitive to their financial situation. Moreover attorneys cannot make opposing counsel agree to terms and when I explained that unfortunately I was going to have to send a bill to this client, this review was posted.

Poor service
Not worth the money. Always making excuse why he couldn’t get something done. Hired him for a divorce and couldn’t get him to work on my case because he was putting out “fires” in other case is what I was told. Then told me my retainer was almost gone cause I was calling to check on the status after he didn’t keep to the timeframes he gave me. Parted ways with him and got my divorce done in 3 months after waiting on him for 8 months.

Response from Gere Beason February 12, 2019
This is not true. We live in a day and age where people, even when you've never represented them, can post negative things about people on he internet without signing their names. It can be anyone who has a problem with you or your family. It can be a person who you beat in court, wining your client custody, as I suspect this one particular review is related to, based on the timing. It's impossible to run a retainer out by just calling and checking on the status of a case. Feel free to ask any attorney if that's possible.
