The Best!
It is with the utmost confidence that I can endorse Attorney Beaulier's legal services. Mr. Beaulier contacted me immediately due to his familiarity with the urgency of my domestic harassment matter and his extensive history of practicing in the challenging area of family law. In addition, Mr. Beaulier conducted himself with empathy while basing his guidance on a firm and solid background which addressed my embarrassing dilemma with respect and on-point perception. In summary, Attorney Beaulier is a very talented resource, advocate and asset to the Twin Cities' legal industry.

Answer For Me Before I Asked
This was nothing less than perfect. I had not been able to find the status of an E-Filed divorce. I put that message in my inquiry box for Unbundled Lawyers. When Mr. Beaulier first responded to me...he included the information I had been looking for. Totally saving me time and getting me the help I needed without even talking to me.

Supportive & Knowledgeable
I just wanted to leave my testimonial - even though my husband at the time hired Maury as his divorce lawyer to represent him and his side of the case, I felt totally comfortable throughout the entire divorce process! I didn't feel the need to hire my own lawyer because Maury was upfront and answered all my questions, even on the weekends! I couldn't be happier with how smooth the divorce proceedings went! What a blessing to be in the hands of a very capable lawyer!

Great lawyer!
Mr. Beaulier helped resolve my case and cleared my name. He was professional and diligent. At the end the judge reversed all my disqualifications! I would highly recommend Mr. Beaulier to anyone who has legal issues.

Maury helped me tremendously on an urgent matter
My child's mother filed a bogus ex parte that would deprive me of parental overnights if signed the next day. I received the papers in the evening. He answered the phone immediately late that night after I scoured the internet helplessly trying to figure out what to do for an hour. He worked relentlessly to help get my affidavit and motion in order so I could file it in the morning. He was the first person I called and I was fortunate to be so lucky as to have called him before any other lawyer. Thank you again Maury!

2 Great Experiences
I have had the pleasure to hire Maury on two occasions. He did a great job both times. The first occasion, he expunged my arrest record. The second occasion, he had my 5th degree assault charge dismissed and had a second charge amended. Maury is a great, personal attorney that I recommend to anyone.

He's a legal warrior. He will fight for you and win. Thanks Maury. Best lawyer I've ever met.
Let's see He's always on time, he will likely call you if your two seconds late to hearing, because he will be there waiting. Legal chops man. He knows his stuff. He can cite cases like an apellate attorney. If you need a lawyer that could take you all the way to the Supreme Court and win it's him. The guy has got a mind like a knife. Just a brilliant man; just stunning the quality of human being. My daughters mom went nuts. She had been working to set me up with the cops for a long time. No reason. Just mental illness. Finally, I had enough. I defended myself. Well, that case is just about dismissed. The mother wrote a full confession for setting me up and Maury kicked the prosecutors ass up and down the court with a smile. Maury, you are a great American and hands down the best criminal defense attorney I have ever witnessed, and in general being honest your the best attorney I have ever had the pleasure being a client of. You have a problem? Your butt getting a little tired of being in the fire? Call Maury Beaulier. Holy buckets will he fight for you with wit and intelligence. Never have I seen such excellence from an attorney. What a great man. A great attorney. Retaining Maury will be the best decision you ever make. He does most forms of law civil and criminal so don't be shy to bring him your family case. You won't regret it. Thanks Maury Adam.

Contempt
I don't even have the words to describe how much trust and faith that I have in Maury as an attorney! He does his homework and then takes over the court room. I am and will recommend Maury anytime someone needs a Diplomatic but aggressive Attorney when the need to be. Thank you so much Mandy Oestreich-Legg

Impressive/Great Value/Highly Experienced
I needed a lawyer located in Minneapolis and Maury completely blew me out of the water with his professionalism, value, intelligence and his years of experience showed. He under-sold and completely over-delivered on what he said he was going to do. He wrote me a letter I needed and said he had not done appeals in quite a while and when I got it and read it, I was thinking this guy is a highly educated and experienced attorney. I would recommend Maury to anyone needing an experienced and capable lawyer.

Would Recommend
Maury exceeded expectations and diligently worked to research the parameters of my case. He is easy to work with and takes the time to get all the information necessary to represent each client. He was straightforward, punctual, professional, and communicated eloquently. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking counsel in family law.

I trust Maury!
Four years ago, Maury helped me with my divorce and co-parenting challenges. Now, I have contacted Maury, to assist with a prenup, for my new marriage. I must say that Maury has set the bar very high, in my mind. He is very honest and trustworthy; those aren’t always traits which are synonymous with the legal industry. I initially had searched for an “aggressive” attorney, for my divorce. I found that not only is Maury assertive, he has a plethora of positive traits; very professional, extremely knowledgeable, he’s honest about possible outcomes, he is very succinct in his use of words and time. And, meeting with him, for the second time, regarding the prenup, I felt comfortable and at ease with him! I have told my friends about Maury, and I can recommend him, wholeheartedly and with confidence. The Twin Cities is fortunate to have him!

Great lawyer!
Mr.Beaulier is a great lawyer! He is professional, honest and has a lot of integrity. I had to hire him after my previous lawyer was not accomplishing much with my Chips case. Mr.Beaulier jumped right in, professionally and aggressively negotiated with a county attorney and was able to achieve a full dismissal for my case! He did a great job!

Smart, Efficient, and Honest
Mr. Beaulier is an amazing lawyer and wonderful person. He successfully defended me against false child custody allegations and then saved me a lot of time and money during the actual divorce. I still can't believe how much he accomplished in just four months. A real miracle worker.

Mr. Beaulier - THE MOST UPRIGHT AND BEST LAWYER YOU WILL EVER NEED.
Mr. Beaulier - THE MOST UPRIGHT AND BEST LAWYER YOU WILL EVER NEED. I posted an issue that had with the court system. He gave me the best reasonable answer that I have to live with. Judges are humans and have the tendency to make mistakes by error or intentionally; the right and knowledgeable Lawyer might make that not to happen. I went to court by myself and found it the hard way. Mr. Beaulier directly pointed to me where I made mistakes.

Mr. Beaulier - THE BEST LAWYER YOU CAN EVER HAVE
I interviewed 14 different attorneys before i decided to hire Mr. Beaulier. What made him stand out from all other attorneys is that while all other attorneys were just talking about their retainers and not interested in details of your case, Maury only requested to review my files and then met with me. I was impressed when i finally met with him because he is intelligently sound, he knew a lot about my case in such a short period of time and ask all the tough but necessary questions. Talk of a lawyer who is so passionate about your case it is Maury. Talk of a lawyer who works tirelessly towards achieving your bottom line, it is Maury. Maury is not just an 8am-5pm attorney, he's constantly working on your case even when he claims he is on vacation, he responds to emails earnestly. His sense of urgency to your case is second to none. He dots all his 'i's and crosses his 't's. He walks into the courtroom and he takes charge. I have so much respect for him which is why i address him as Mr. Beaulier. Hiring Mr. Beaulier is one of the best decisions i made towards my divorce case.
