Mrs. Beene is an exceptional professional
Mrs. Beene is a lawyer who really cares. She has helped my friend several times and has shown kindness above and beyond our expectations. She is willing to work with her clients in regards to payments. It is a comfort to know that there are lawyers who actually care. Mrs. Beene is one of those lawyers. After needing her services several times in both Williamson County and Travis County I have never been disappointed by her. There is a reason that her rating is five star. She has a big heart and I have nothing but respect for and confidence in Mrs.Beene. I could go on and on, but will leave my review here.
