What our clients have said about us...

Beau Brock Rocks! 

Client wrote on AVVO

Looking for an awesomely competent, person-centered, and results-oriented attorney for your legal defense needs? Mr. Beau Brock is your man!

Beau jumped to my defense during the very darkest hours of my life as I faced possible arrest on a sexual misconduct allegation. He was such a blessing to me during the whole process – relating to me like a close and trusted friend who just happens to also be an amazing attorney as well! He and his paralegal Eileen responded quickly and aggressively - like a dynamic duo!

I learned about Beau through a colleague. When I looked him up on his website, read his professional blub, and saw his kind, smiling face there, I knew he was the defense attorney for me. As evident by his website, Beau is very personable, family-oriented and a dedicated Christian. He genuinely cares. Over the first hours of working on my case, we shared our love of our families, our friends, and our faith, which helped to distract me from the horror of a possible arrest – which would have literally ruined my life. And I was comforted that Beau always had a plan of action, which he shared with me each step of the way.

From the start, Beau was very accessible and highly responsive. He shared his cell phone with me - even before we had our first face-to-face meeting! Throughout the process, he always responded to my calls/ texts promptly and cordially. He even took time to meet with me over the weekend (after the LSU game was over, of course!)

Beau demonstrated a respectful and effective working relationship with law enforcement, which was critical in my case. He promptly called the detective and kept him from “jumping the gun” in making an arrest, giving the time needed for the allegation to be fully investigated for the facts – aggressively defending my innocence.

And Beau’s fee schedule was very reasonable. I was able to pay a fair retainer fee, rather than being charged for this and that, by the hour, by the call, by the letter, etc., as I understand some attorneys do. This greatly helped me to budget and pay for my legal defense expenses. Plus, he let me know exactly how much would be needed each step of the way, in the event that I did get arrested and had to go to trial – which never happened thanks to Beau’s amazing work - Alleluia!

Beau was truly a God-send to me. A 5-star rating is just not enough to fully express his awesomeness and the depth of my gratitude!

God Bless You, Beau! And Eileen too!

Port in a Storm

Posted by client on AVVO

I met Beau (and his wonderful Paralegal, Eileen) under the most heartbreaking circumstances that any mother could endure. My son was incarcerated, and had been diagnosed with a terminal heart condition. They gave up their Sunday afternoon to come to the hospital after a pleading phone call from someone they had never met. I was lost, heartbroken, terrified, and angry. This kind and gentle soul worked nonstop to help guide us through all that had to be done, hoping for a compassionate release so that my son could spend his last days at home. They were tireless. Emailing, texts, trips to the prison, always (and I mean always) available to myself and my son, and taking care of all the paperwork that had to be done. When my son passed, Beau took on things that had to be done...........because I just couldn't.

Although I ultimately lost my son, I could not have found a more hard working, caring, empathetic, honest attorney for 10 times the cost. I have friends for life with Beau and Eileen. What amazing people. How blessed I am that we found one another.

A Hero in a Bow tie!!

The day that I met my attorney was a day I will never forget. My parents hired him to help me with two charges while I was on felony probation. At this point in my life I was lost, broken, addicted to drugs, and I had absolutely no one. The only person I had was him!! I was on a probation hold and unfortunately I was not able at the time to leave the jail. Beau Brock came to the back of the courthouse where they were holding inmates for court. We spoke for a second and he said this to me, "if you just listen to me, do everything that I say, and I guarantee you that you will get through this and have a normal life." At the time I didn't know what to do or think. Here is this man, a stranger, telling me a drug addict that I could have a normal life. I was so aggravated at first because a normal life to me sounded like something that i was not able to poses. The time moved forward and I developed a personal understanding for everything that I needed to do. The time came for me to be released from jail, however, court appearances were still a must for the next couple of years. I continued to stay on the right track. I was no longer a addict. The agreements Beau Brock made to the judge for me helped me do exactly what he said he would do. He helped me recover. He helped me restore my faith in a society that I now was able to be a part of, Every court date things got better. It was because of the support from this complete stranger who now was a dear friend. Beau Brock changed my life. He gave me hope. He made me realize that mistakes can be fixed correctly by obeying the law. Our journey together is getting very close to the end. I am a reformed and recovered addict. I am a law abiding citizen that has a family, love, and support. The broken lost soul that I was can hold my head high now. I could have never done any of these things if it wasn't for Beau Brock and his team. If you want honesty, loyal, and a dedicated lawyer, you will be making a big mistake by not choosing him. I thank God for my new friend and attorney everyday. I am blessed beyond measure because Beau Brock believed in me when I didn't believe in my self. He fulfilled his promise and still to this day I have a great life!!

Beau Brock helped me with a teenager who had got into trouble with his friends. He was so wonderful working with the young people and explaining to them how the law worked and what they needed to do to stay out of trouble as well as protect themselves. He kept everything confidential and was a wonderful teacher and attorney. I will never forget what he did for those kids. I recommend him to everyone I know. Beau Brock knew exactly what to do and made certain things were done very quickly. Thanks Mr Brock!
