Beckum Law LLC is dedicated to helping individuals and small businesses with legal issues throughout the State of Alabama.  I have been practicing law over 15 years and have represented clients across the country in high stakes litigation.  These clients have included multinational coporations and individuals who just needed a good lawyer.  My law practice is focused on assisting homeowners who have purchased defective homes and employees who have been wrongfully terminated or harassed in the workplace.  My office is located in Vestavia Hills, Alabama and I provide free in-person consultations to individuals who simply want to find out if they have a case.

Great Employment Lawyer
Will has been helpful in a very difficult situation. He knows the law and was aggressive in getting me a good settlement.
Posted by Willie | May 29, 2015
Excellent Lawyer
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.
