How does your service stand out?

An Attorney who cares = favorable results! I'm more interested in being an advocate for my clients than billing my clients. My retainer and hourly fees are low and I provide free 1/2 hour consultations. I will personally handle your case.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Helping people and being an advocate for them in the judicial system and using my licenses as a license to serve as opposed to get rich at the expense of others.

    A great lawyer and a great person.
    I got the help of Besserman Law Office after months of not getting any help from my first lawyer. My first lawyer quit on me at the last-minute right before trial which had been sat for about a month before. I my search began by reading many reviews. Then I had few consultations with few other attorneys and felt like this Law office, Besserman Law office, was right for me. Right away I could see that I made the right choice. She had an uphill fight on her hands and she was more than up to the challenge. Her office was a little farther for me to drive which I didn’t like at first but after seeing her at work I would have driven a lot farther for this kind of help. She worked relentlessly to get caught up and to try and turn things around. Within no time, she was caught up and helping me answer questions I had had from the start. She would even email me late into the night if she told me she would. This was a good change from my last lawyer who would make me wait sometimes weeks to get an answer only to answer me vaguely. It was night and day from what I had before. She started getting results fast. She was always a straight shooter with me and never sugarcoated things. She always kept me involved in what she and I needed to do to move things ahead. Mostly she always made sure I understood what was going on since this was my first time in court was this case. She quickly paid off for me by not making me show up for court just to be seated outside of the courtroom, which was not good me leaving out of state. In the end, she ended a 1 year battle in about 2 months of her working on it. In doing so she went above and beyond what I expected. She never backed down even with the odds against her. Most importantly she tried to put the kids in this case first and not her pocket book. Doing things in the fastest way she could and in the best quality she could. Finally, she will always come highly recommended by me and people in my family that had to hear my stories. I can only hope that she will always be my go-to lawyer if I ever need to go back for anything else. I am truly grateful for all she has done for me and I could not have wished for a better lawyer. I only wish I could put into words better how grateful I am for her help and her patience with me.

    Outstanding customer service. Ms Besserman saw me the day I called and for a late appointment. I appreciate her flexibility in seeing me so late and she was very knowledgeable of the process and what would happen in my case.

    I retained Ms. Besserman on two occasions. The first was the adoption of my grandson and the second was the development of my last will and testament. She and her staff are personable, knowledgeable, and work quickly to get the job completed. I recommend the Besserman Law Office for your legal needs. I'm sure you will be as pleased as I was.

    Ms besserman was absolutely wonderful. My wife and I were very nervous and scared as to the task we were about to take on. We had felt we had a good case but we still were not sure how things would go for us. Ms Besserman was wonderful with making us feel confident and comfortable with the decision that we were making. She was very honest with us she always let us know the best case and worst case scenario so we would never be blind sided by a decision. Through every step of the process she kept us informed. Even it was late at night after she finally got done working she would always send us an email with an update on our case. she truly cares about her clients. She didn't take our case lightly and she certainly won't take your case lightly either.

    Goes above and beyond you normal expectations for an attorney. Also, very personable and professional.
  • Jay C. Jun 1, 2015
    Ms. Besserman represented me in a family law case that was very messy. She was always very responsive to my phone calls and emails with last minute questions and was very accommodating with providing office hours that worked with my schedule. She is the first attorney that I have ever worked with that I truly felt cared about me, my case, and my family more than making money. I could not be happier with the service she provided us and she will be the go-to attorney for referrals and any future needs that I might have.

    Deborah is an outstanding attorney. She goes above and beyond for her clients and treats them with the respect they deserve. She takes her time to listen to what her client is expecting and then will explain exactly what should be done to achieve that result. I would recommend her to anyone that is searching for an outstanding attorney!

    Deborah was great when I was starting my own business. She helped out with my LLC registration and operating contract. She was concise and knowledgable with all my questions. My case was more complicated as it had to deal with both Missouri and Illinois laws.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check an attorney's ARDC violations and ask them how many times it took them to pass a bar examination to become licensed.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
If you do not like your attorney, you may fire them. You are the client and you are what is important. You want an attorney who genuinely cares and doesn't lose you in the mist of all the rest of their cases.
