As a physician Margot was absolutely respectful of my need for discretion and privacy. She is attentive and responsive and my outcome was wonderful. I strongly recommend Margot to anyone going through this difficult time.

Best divorce attorney in St. Louis!!!
Hiring Margot was one of the smartest things I’ve ever done and I’m so thankful a friend referred her to me! My ex is narcissistic and extremely nasty so I knew taking him back to court for the thousands of dollars he owed me was not going to be easy. Margot and her staff were absolutely amazing from start to finish. Margot is tough but reasonable. She lays out the facts in laymen’s terms not legal jargon so I was able to make decisions based on reality. She knows exactly what to do in all situations and doesn’t back down. At the same time, she is extremely compassionate and understands what her clients are going through and she is a great listener! Believe me she got an earful from me and yet she always stayed focused on the end goal…taking the absolute best care of her clients and doing what’s right. Do yourself a favor and hire Margot as your attorney…you won’t regret it!

The High Road
I am an attorney of over 25 years but I had no experience with divorce or family issues. Right before Christmas, 2016, I found myself removed from my home and without access to my minor children...based upon lies. Margot was recommended to me by another attorney. Opposing counsel was a very nasty person. Margot kept the case on track and refused to let focus be directed to the drama and false allegations. At first I questioned her approach, but I soon realized that she knew what she was doing. On the day that we started Trial, Margot Beasley destroyed opposing counsel. The overall result was much better than projected. I would strongly recommend Margot Beasley for any domestic matters. She Rocks! She is also very nice.

Margot ROCKS!
Margot is TOUGH but reasonable. She will not let you get bullied by your EX and she always has your back. She not only wants what is best for her client but what is also best for the child caught in the middle of the drama. I wouldn't trust any other lawyer to handle my divorce. Margot is the one you want on your side!!!

Simply the BEST
Margot is simply the best family law attorney I have ever dealt with! She came highly recommended to me by a friend. I was going through a very difficult time in my life with my divorce, and without Margot 24/7 commitment to help me I don’t know where I would be today. Margot is a true fighter when she needs to be. She is very straightforward and honest at all times. If I ever had a question I did not understand something she would go to all extremes to make sure I understood everything she was telling me. That is very important to me because at that time in my life I needed someone like that very direct and honest. I highly recommend Margot for any and all of your family law needs, you will not be disappointed!

Ms. Heather Rawls
Margot was flexible and willing to meet with me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. She made time to meet with me with short notice to review the needs of my case. She was empathetic and caring, realizing that this was more than just a legal case, this was a heartbreaking upheaval in my life. I appreciated her willingness to work with me on a payment plan so that I could move forward as needed. She was honest and forthcoming about my legal case and helped me negotiate the best possible outcome.

Alimony case
If you need a good attorney Margot Beasley I think is one of the best. She took my case witch was no chance to a slim chance of me winning. She was able to help me greatly. She is reasonable on her prices and will work with you on your payments. She has my upmost respect and admiration. If I ever need a attorney again Margot will be the first person I call. Thank you so much Margot Beasley.

Margo Beasley is a friend first!
Ethical, compassionate, caring and fair are not usually words associated with a family law attorney...until now. I am grateful for the representation and results both myself and kids were awarded with the help and guidance from Margo. After a miserable and draining emotional and financial divorce even several years after there were serious child custody concerns along with disregard for financial responsibilities agreed to in parenting plan from my childrens mother. I was not interested in another ridiculous amount of money wasted in unnecessary litigation and lining “name brand” attorneys pockets who put their personal financial gains in front of what is best for my children. I was referred to Margo and after our initial consultation I knew things were going to be ok. Margo was compassionate and could relate to my concerns. She instructed me on what to do and what to to expect. In addition she gives great insight and advice on how the court will handle your situation. In other words she guided me on how to pick my battles and in the end how to do what was best for my kids in an affordable manor. Family law unfortunately is very draining. Both myself and my kids were proud to have Margo speak in our behave. I never thought I would consider a lawyer my friend. Today I consider Margo my friend then my attorney.

Professional and caring
Margo has been so great to work with. She’s been fair and honest with us though all we have gone through. She’s always there for advice as well as to do her job. She really listens to what we have to say and is always completely honest with us on what needs to be done and what she needs from us. We couldn’t ask for a better person to represent us.

Devoted and Compassionate
My family and I have had the privilege of Margot providing us with legal advice and guidance during some difficult situations. Specifically pertaining to guardianship of my five year old granddaughter. While working with Margot I've witnessed the compassion, dedication, endless hours and loyalty that she possesses. I always felt that even when she was occupied with other clients she would always follow up within a timely manner which always put me at ease knowing their was constant communication. I would strongly recommend Margot Beasley to anyone looking for a strong willed fierce, yet compassionate and fair lawyer especially when it comes to family law as I believe she fights for your family as if it was her own.

Amazing Attorney
Margot helped me during the most difficult and stressful time in my life. She was available when I needed her throughout the entire process. She fought for my rights as a parent. She strives for the best outcome. My family and I are very grateful for her service.

Honest, Sincere, Intelligent and Kind
Margot greeted me with open arms after I fired my previous attorney. He was pushing me to ask for things I didn't want all in the name of "playing the game". Margot doesn't play the game, she does it right. She is honest about what to expect, sincere in wanting to help achieve your goals, intelligent about the law (and those involved) and has a kind heart. My previous attorney caused more fights with my ex-husband than he fixed and Margot was able to bring us back to a solid middle ground that we could both agree on. I really appreciate her having my back when I needed someone the most. I've recommended her to several people and will always go to her when I'm in need.

Exceptional Attorney Margot Beasley (Thank You So Much)
For those of you that believe in an higher power (God) and (since I had to get a divorce), I prayed that he would help me choose the right attorney and I believe me he did by sending me to Margot. Notice I call her Margot and that is because she has become very dear to me. All my adult life I had been a strong, educated, advice giving role model to many people but when I found out that my husband had deceived me after years of marriage I fell apart. When I approached him in regards to his adultery he was defiant, verbally abusive and for the first time psychically abusive, he showed no remorse after years of often expressing and showing his love for me. I remember we watched the movie the" Note Book", together and cried together and vowed to grow old together but that was all erased by the willing decision made by him to cheat. You see I did not look as young as I did and my health began to fail me. We had beautiful grandchildren that I was more than willing to spend time with but he wanted something more to be young again and as he told me" you are just an old grandma" he could no longer see that I still had a sparkle in my eyes just for him. You see once a man or women betray the marriage bed by choosing to pick another berry or( lay with another) they turn their face from you and it is almost impossible to get their attention again. The trapping of adultery are so shinny and everyday living with your mate appears to be a burden. I am giving you so much back ground to let you know I was a broken women and when Margot heard my story she worked hard to get the respect and justice that I deserved. I was willing to give up but she wouldn't let me. I will forever be grateful to her she is a genius when it comes to defending her client in my opinion. This is my truth and rest assure if you employ her as your attorney to are getting the best!!!

A great person, and an even better Lawyer
After many, many negative experiences with attorneys in the past, I am truly grateful to have come across Ms. Beasley. Her professionalism and pure dedication to your case and experience as a client altogether, cannot be matched elsewhere. Night or day, I know that I can rely on Margot for the best advice, consultation, or plan of action, regardless of the nature of the situation. Margot is incredibly knowledgeable about the law, and expresses that in any client related issue. Additionally, her personable nature, friendliness, and tenacious attitude allows any client to feel secure and well represented. Again, I am grateful to have found such a great attorney and would highly recommend her to anyone.
