Saved my life and future
At a dark point in my life I made some decisions that ultimately put my future in jeopardy. I allowed something relatively small to get out of hand. I honestly thought I had no solution and simply needed to just face the music. Within 3 minutes of contacting Ms. Beerup I felt as if I was a new person. She assured me everything would be ok and she exceeded and more to accomplish just that. I was looking at some possibly big fines and jail time for some long standing warrants. Once all said and done I walked away only needing to complete a class. Just wow. I will forever feel indebted for this and while I hope to never see a courtroom again I know if I have to who I will have by my side — Ms Beerup. Everything just was superb. Always there to answer any questions. Day or night. Phone call or text. Most importantly fought for me in a way that I have yet to see a lawyer do before. I can never thank her enough for what she did for me. I will always recommend her. Thank you again Ms. Beerup!

Ruth Beerup: A+ Professional. Very impressed.
I had an old traffic violation in the late '90's that ended in a 10 year license revocation. Years later I needed a lawyer to petition the court and it ended up being a bigger deal today than it was 20 years ago. Ruth was professional and went above and beyond at every stage to help make this happen. When she found out my court date was moved to a later date, she went to the courthouse, spoke with the judge, called the prosecutor, and got it done the very next day, and because I live out of town and it was difficult to travel, she was able to get an entire hearing conducted and successfully litigated over the phone (under oath, and with the Judge, prosecutor, and my defense attorney, Ruth!). The judge and prosecutor were absolutely wonderful and very accommodating as well; most likely because Ruth made them aware of the circumstances of the past and how things changed over so many years. She took the time to talk about every concern, even on weekends and after hours. I'm more than impressed and would recommend Ruth Beerup as an attorney for any reason you may need one. She'll not only work with you, but FOR you to the very end. Kudos, and many thanks Ruth!

Skilled, Caring, Compassionate lawyer
Ruth is a skilled lawyer who knows the law and her way around the courthouse. Just as important as skill and experience is a lawyer who cares. Unfortunately, there are a lot of lawyers who will tell you whatever you want to hear to get into your wallet. Ruth is the type of lawyer who cares about her client and cares about their legal situation. Being in trouble is terrifying, Ruth understands this and takes the responsibility of helping her clients seriously. I recommend Ruth as an attorney without hesitation. Call her now!

Multiple times over the past 6 years
Ruth has helped with Speeding Tickets and multiple cases for my children. Recently she handled a case down in Columbia, MO- she is affordable, dependable and truly cares about your case and family. She has handled several of my sons possession charges/helped him get in rehab instead of jail- the judges/DA seem to like her.

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Ruth is a tireless worker who is always in the courtroom advocating for her clients. She definitely knows her way around the local courts and when I've talked to her about legal issues, it is clear she is up to date on the law. The clients I have seen her with in court seem happy with their choice of attorney, which is not the case with every lawyer. In short, I would be comfortable with Ruth representing one of my family members because I know they would be well taken care of."
