Client Reviews
One of the finest construction attorneys in Alabama. In conjunction with another associate legally fought and won a sizeable reward against one of the largest residential builders in Alabama. If you are seeking an attorney with honesty and integrity, who knows the law and will do what he says he will do; Will Beckum is the one to hire. Larry L.
I spoke with three other lawyers before choosing Mr. Beckum as my lawyer. He has been dedicated to my case from the first time we spoke. He is compassionate about my legal issues with my job and was exactly the type of lawyer I needed to turn the tables. I would recommend him to anyone seeking an employment lawyer. Liz S.
Mr. Beckum did a great job on my discrimination case. He was patient and hard working and never gave up on me - even after my prior lawyer did. I can't say enough about how good a job he did and I was very happy with my settlement. Willie
