Practical Advice. Timely Service. Timeless Values. These are the principles guiding service to clients of The Beck Law Firm, LLC. Founded by Joel Beck, the firm recognizes that clients need real-world solutions to their legal issues, and not legal mumbo-jumbo or answers that sound or look good, but don't really work in the real world.
Joel Beck, founder of The Beck Law Firm, LLC provides practical legal solutions and advice to clients. By narrowly tailoring his practice areas and not being a legal jack-of-all-trades, Joel says abreast of recent legal developments to provide his clients with the best possible service and value for their dollar.
Prior to opening The Beck Law Firm, LLC, Joel worked as a Regional Counsel for NASD (n/k/a FINRA) in the Enforcement Department, where he litigated cases against broker-dealers and stockbrokers. Joel was designated as a Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional (CRCP) by the NASD Institute and the Wharton School of Business; he does not maintain the designation as current as he has chosen to focus his continuing education time in other areas. Previously, Joel worked as a police officer.
Joel is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the Gwinnett County Bar Association and the Christian Legal Society.

Joel's experience as a former securities regulator make him someone I often consult with on various securities regulation issues, as well as someone to whom I refer prospective clients with regulatory issues. Other peers have also commented on his expertise as an expert witness in securities regulation issues. I have always found Joel's insights and expertise to be excellent, and am pleased to endorse him.
