Jenny Beck is an outstanding family lawyer and an extremely decent person. Her extended team have clearly been carefully chosen to ensure that the same high level of professionalism and thoughtful client care are available whoever you speak to. I was in a lot of distress when I first met Jenny but I was hugely impressed, from the start by, her extraordinary insight, intelligence and expertise. By the end of the first meeting, I knew I was very fortunate to have been put in touch with Jenny and from that point on, she completely turned things around from me.
All the way through what could have been a very traumatic process, I felt calm and reassured as it was clear that I was in safe hands. I have recommended Jenny to other acquaintances and I know that they have been equally impressed. I also owe a debt of thanks to Molly who worked on some aspects of my case and was always incredibly solid in her work and charming in her attitude. I do think Beck Fitzgerald deliver 100% on all they promise on their website and I would say that you are getting first-class lawyers for an incredibly reasonable price.
Jenny Beck’s legal knowledge and advice, coupled with a genuine warmth and compassion toward my situation, helped me navigate through a very difficult time. She was available, committed and dedicated, and professional at all times. I would not have got through this without her, which kept me steady and focused. I would absolutely recommend Jenny and her team.
