  • Christopher Daniel Leroi

    Mr. Beckham is one of the most learned, experienced, and excellent attorneys that I have ever encountered. Even though I have spent the past 24 years as a law professor, judge, magistrate, prosecutor, and private attorney, I learn valuable information from his posts each and every day. I highly recommend him to everyone.

  • Alexander Joseph Segal

    I say it often - this profession is striving on knowledge and experience but relies heavily on innovation and modernization. The younger generation of well-trained, initiative-driven and energetic attorneys is the hope and future of our profession. It is especially so when they have as impressive and diverse a resume as does Edward. This is why I am happy to endorse Attorney Beckham and welcome him into this online community.
