The Best
I was cited for a DUI. I was facing major consequences because I live out of state. Beau was able to get my DUI dismissed, and I pled guilty to careless driving instead. I was thoroughly impressed with his demeanor, his professionalism, his responsiveness, and the results. I give him my highest recommendation, he saved me my job and my license.

Criminal charges
Don't think you can't be charged with a crime you did not commit. Beau took my case when others declined and pursued it vigilently to an outright dismissal. This young lawyer is the Matlock of Winona.
