Mr. Beard worked quickly and rectified the problem.

I want to give my biggest thanks and endorsement for the great care and help that Mr. Austin Beard has been to my new wife and me. I recently resigned from my commission in the military and moved to Memphis. I did not know anyone in Memphis but Mr. Beard has been someone I have never had to worry about in my stressful transition. When I first arrived in Memphis and was assigned as a client, we had a problem with my life insurance. Some paperwork was missing and as such the life insurance was not in force. Mr. Beard worked quickly and rectified the problem.

More recently when trying to process immigration paperwork to get my wife into the USA from the Philippines, the government needed financial proof of marriage. I needed my beneficiaries on my accounts quickly changed after my marriage to reflect my wife as the beneficiary to provide to the government. Mr. Beard and his team worked quickly with multiple companies to change my beneficiaries over to my wife and get me the paperwork to turn in within a week. They were in contact with me, updated me throughout the process, were extremely helpful, and went above and beyond. My new wife and I want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for everything they did. Thank you.
