An Absolute God Send
Misty has been with my case through several years, and she's not only been there for my family but genuinely cared for my case. I recommend her to anyone dealing with custody and family court situations.

An Attorney that Care About Her Clients
I have had to deal with several attorneys in my life and I would have to say that Mrs. Becker is far more the only attorney I have ever had that truly cares about her clients and understands them. I never called her office without being able to speak to her personally or her paralegal. She went above and beyond the call of duty to put my mind at ease several times. I was very emotional during the process due to the recent loss of my mother and she understood how to assist me. Its hard enough going through a legal situation but to have an attorney that actually returns your calls and emails is a big help. I would highly recommend her to anyone and if I ever need an attorney again, she will be the first one I call. I have the highest respect for her and truly appreciate her being the attorney she is which is most unusual but makes the process much easier. Thank you Mrs. Becker and the Becker team.

Superior Family Law Attorney.
Ms Becker has been my attorney since 2008 in what many consider to be one of the most contentious divorce and child custody cases in Shelby County. From my initial meeting with Ms Becker in 2008 until the present, I could not be more pleased with the representation I have received. My ex wife is now on her fourth attorney and I firmly believe that Ms Becker and her highly ethical handling of the case and her constant push for honesty is the reason opposing counsel continue to withdraw. In the over 4 years of handling my case, Ms Becker has never lost a motion or failed to obtain the outcome we were seeking. She is the most honest, ethical and trustworthy attorney. She has been a great counselor, advisor and friend. The staff at her firm are the very best and keep me constantly aware of any issues involving my case.

If I could give NO stars, I would
I reached out to the Becker Law firm back in June and, as per the email response, paid a $100 consultation fee and scheduled a meeting in July. After the meeting, I agreed to hire them for a simple family mediation case for $1200. I told Misty Becker that I would have to pay in installments, as I school was starting back up and I'd need to be able to take care of my middle schooler's supplies and clothes. She informed me that as long as the payments were made within 30 days, I'd be fine and she would begin the case as soon as the last payment hit. I made sure that I made the deadline and waited for a response. When August rolled around, I was concerned because I hadn't heard an update but understood, so I reached out to see what progress was made. At first, Misty claimed that she had COVID, which was understandable. But then the next month (September), after it being 2 months, when I FINALLY heard back from Misty, she claimed that she'd never received my last $200 payment. I sent her a screenshot of, not only the receipt that HER OFFICE sent me right after I made the payment, but also a screenshot of my bank account showing every single transaction that I made with them. I didn't hear back from Misty for WEEKS. In fact, I hadn't heard back from her email EXCEPT to send me invoices showing that I wasn't paid up. After a while, I reached out and suggested that maybe I should get another lawyer, as she was not fulfilling the agreement that we had and, as I wanted this matter to be done with before the end of the year to avoid holidays, we were pushing deadlines. Rather than email me back, Misty had someone in her office (Monica) reach out to me to inform me that, somehow, this illustrious 20+ year law firm was having email trouble. This wouldn't have been a problem, if I hadn't been calling at least once a week to try to get someone on the phone. Of course, no one ever called back. Monica requested the same information regarding the $200 be sent to her, as Misty claims she never received it. I sent the exact same information to Monica and then never heard from her for a week. Come October, I received an invoice stating that I STILL had not paid and, after that, decided that I was done dealing with them. I demanded my refund and told them that I would be taking my own separate legal actions if I did not get my money back. Miraculously...Misty's email managed to work. I was billed for the time I spent emailing Monica and was not issued a full refund. At this point I really don't care. My only concern is making sure that EVERYONE knows what a terrible law firm Becker Law Firm is. I'll be reporting them to the Tennessee Bar Association as well as the Better Business Bureau. It may not do much, and honestly I'm not expecting them to protect one of their own. But I DO know that others need to know that they need to stay away from this office. I wish I'd have done my homework thoroughly on them before because this whole stealing people's money and missing deadlines is apparently their MO. They're TRASH!

I hired Misty Becker and was not given the attention and focus that as a paying client I felt I should have received. For example deadlines were missed and pertinent documents ignored. My case was neglected and fees were very excessive .
