An attorney with integrity
I found Neil after working with an attorney void of integrity. Neil is compassionate, informed, and connected in the Austin community. I found his consultation to be thorough and his cleanup work on my case was efficient and appropriate. He is cerebral, yet approachable, and I've not dealt with an attorney with his integrity. I recommend him to anyone who is in the unfortunate position of facing a divorce or custody situation.

Attorney (client of Neil's) highly recommending him - Excellent advisor, great negotiator, fierce trial advocate
As an attorney who found myself in the most horrible situation of my adult life, I felt strongly that I needed a family law attorney who would do what was not only best for me but, far more importantly, for the innocent victims of my divorce - my children. So I called upon a number of my family law attorney colleagues and one person was repeatedly recommended – Neil Beyer. Throughout the process, Neil was a calm port in the storm whose guidance (while sometimes challenging and not always what I wanted to hear) was always focused on creating the best outcome for me and my children. As a result, he did a tremendous job of protecting my children, my property, and my future. Neil is someone who has truly mastered his craft. He deeply understands all aspects of family, child support, and child custody law. Far more importantly, he clearly understood my goals and did what was necessary to achieve them. In my case that meant going through a two-day trial and that was where Neil truly differentiated himself from many of his peers. Neil is an excellent negotiator, an astute advisor, and (when necessary) a fierce trial advocate. When your children’s mental/emotional/physical health and your future are at risk, I strongly suggest you get Neil Beyer in your corner.

Neil is THE BEST!
Neil is an extremely knowledgable and experienced attorney. He is also very kind, compassionate and easy to talk with. From our first conversation about my divorce case, he made me feel at ease and always took the time to explain everything throughout so that I felt comfortable. Neil and his entire team were absolutely wonderful to work with and so very professional. Special thanks to Melissa, Valerie and Anne for being so kind, courteous and helpful during a very stressful time in my life. I am thrilled with the resolution that Neil helped me obtain and I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone going through a divorce.

Neil’s hard work led to resolution of my back child support lawsuit
Neil and his staff worked tirelessly to deliver the results I needed. They helped me through many issues that arose in dealing with my ex, including his refused to be served papers. While I didn’t get 100% what I was owed, my settlement was definitely enough to make me feel that justice was served. Thank you, Neil!

Divorce with Children
When I was referred to Neil by a military friend I knew he had to be good but I didn’t understand fully until talking to Neil after just one hour. This man has a gift and knows the laws in and out. Neil and his team were able to answer every question I had and run through every scenario I could think of. His prices are, to be honest, lower than the quality of service that you will be receiving. Neil is the blue collar lawyer that everyone wants in their corner. He’s the been there done that kind of lawyer that knows when and how to strike.

My divorce
With all the threats at the beginning I was almost about to accept anything my ex wanted from me. Neil talked me out and gave me my confidence back. Finally I got exactly what I consider as fair and what I wanted to have with the help of Neil. He was always available at any time even via text.

True Integrity and Kindness
During my disastrous divorce case that seemingly would not end, Mr. Beyer was generous with his time as he counseled me regarding some realistic exit options. He spent far more time with me on the phone than he needed to, probably very much at the expense of his other work. I did not have money to pay him much. His kindness and professionalism that exceeded all expectations are, to me, marks of moral character and I truly understand why he is rated so highly.

Highly recommended
I never write reviews but this one hits close to home. I’ve enlisted the help of Beyer Family Law on multiple occasions to protect my daughter. Neil and his staff have always gone above and beyond. He has taught me the ins and outs of family law, counseled me on not just the best winning strategy but more importantly what is best for my daughter while being completely accessible through the entire process. He never promised me anything but excelled in his delivery. He is truly a master of his craft. If you find yourself in the unfortunate position to need his services, you would be hard pressed to find yourself in more capable hands.

Phenomenal Attorney and Legal Team - Empathetic, Knowledgeable, and Savvy
As a loving father with a Very difficult ex-wife, I was extremely scared of the unknown, going into the divorce proceedings. From the start, Neil informed me of the process and kept me level-headed and calm throughout. He and his team were fantastic! They were very accepting of me being a part of the team. At the end I felt a fair resolution had been reached in the divorce and custody dispute. This all thanks to Neil and his team's dedication to my case. So much so that I have already referred Neil to two other fathers going through similar circumstances. Thank you so much for everything!!

Excellent Family Lawyer
Neil is by far the best lawyer we have ever worked with. He works hard and his office staff is polite and always helpful. We have used him personally and recommended him to our family. He helped my sister come to a peaceful and FAIR resolution to her divorce and custody dispute.

Excellent service from beginning to end
Neil was upfront on how the process works. He was prepared and walked me through every step of the way. I took Neil’s expert advise through out the divorce process that ended exactly how he said it would. I am very pleased with the service I received not only from Neil but his entire staff. I would highly recommend anyone going through a divorce who wants a no nonsense approach call Neil.

I highly recommend Neil!!!
I was referred to Neil by several people on social media. He did not disappoint! Neil and his team are fantastic! My case was a child support case (modification). Basically my sons father (NCP) wanted little to no responsibility and Neil made sure that wasn’t going to happen. Trust doesn’t come easy to me, but I trusted him and he sure delivered. He is trustworthy, honest and stern. He will fight for you. I’m beyond grateful for his team.

Top Notch
Neil took the time to explain the process and made sure I understood what to expect. He was easy to contact and I didn't have to wait days to hear back from him. I came out ahead of where I could have ended up. I have the house, the car, some money and my son! I highly recommend him as a divorce attorney.

Highly recommend very keen to detail.
I had a very difficult ex wife and he shut her down and was not about the games. He always looked out for my best interest and always had a solution to a problem. Very transparent on everything and straight forward. Thank you again Neil.

Compassionate and Intelligent Legal Team
I am a young mom with two kiddos. Neil has helped me through a complex divorce case. It is clear his #1 priority is the children involved in these cases; which was crucial for me in a divorce attorney. Most of my close family calls Neil “a bulldog” because that is what he is. He fights for me when I need it most. I am so grateful I was recommended him. I have trusted his guidance, and I can assure you (especially the momma’s out there!), Neil has your back.

My lawyer for 10 years and lawyer to two of my friends
Neil was my lawyer from 2009-2019 and has served as lawyer to two of my friends since then, and if I ever need a family lawyer again, he'll be my lawyer again. I am one of the small number of single dads with custody of a child, and Neil's advocacy over the years for my daughter and me has made a big impact on both of our lives. His extensive experience in courtrooms, mediations, and direct negotiations, and knowledge of nuances of how to position me for getting the best outcome possible for my child and I was crucial to me being able to provide a stable situation for my child after years of instability while her mom had custody and when we had split custody. I first hired Neil in 2009 when my daughter's mother and I were breaking up right as our daughter turned one. While we did not get the result we were hoping for when we went to trial that fall, I found myself needing to call on his services numerous times in the following years as my daughter's mother continued to put our daughter in bad situations and finally, in 2019, we were able to negotiate in mediation our current agreement, which resulted in me having custody of our daughter. Over that 10-year period, we had numerous mediations and court appearances, and his knowledge of the history of the situation was invaluable to his ability to properly advocate for me. Our current agreement has remained in place for 3 years - the longest period of time ever since her mom and I broke up - and I am convinced that it will stick. His ability to counsel me on what was and was not possible (or likely) in court was always important to me understanding what I was getting myself into. He was good about managing my expectations, which is important in this type of situation. Since my last case with him in 2019, I have referred him to two of my friends. One friend was another father who was committed to being involved with his daughter and just wanted joint custody (like I did), but who was having to deal with a former partner who wanted to unilaterally move their daughter away and simply assert custody. I knew him and I knew that he didn't need to accept that outcome, so I told him to call Neil. Neil was able to help him negotiate a joint custody agreement that resulted in my friend's home being the basis of his daughter's school, which was especially important to him. My other friend is a single mother who has been dealing with an ex-husband who put them both in a bad financial situation and who forged her name on a divorce decree that deviated significantly from the direction the judge had given them. I told her about the work Neil had done for me over the years and now he is helping her get it all straightened out. Neil's experience working with a very wide variety of clients and circumstances, combined with his abilities to both find creative solutions in a mediation and be a fierce advocate for you in front of a judge gave him a unique ability to help my daughter and I out in our difficult situation. I consider Neil a friend and an important part of my life after all we've been through.

"I have known Neil since the late 90's when we were both associates at a large law firm. Later we met again after we had both hung out our own shingles and by chance had office space across the hall from each other. So I have gotten to know Neil pretty well and have valued his insight on the workings of the court. He is my first choice when referring clients to a family law lawyer. He is a zealous advocate and does family law because he likes it and is good at it, and sees it as a valuable and necessary service. He has done other kinds of law in the past and would be successful doing other kinds of law, but this is his calling. He really believes in helping people through this difficult process and has the unique skill set for it. And he's a straight shooter. Tells it like it is."
