Goes above and beyond
He represented me in an EEO dispute with my employer. They were playing very dirty & trying to destroy a professional reputation I spent more than 10 years building. The employer used lies, manipulations such as pressuring my subordinates to file complaints about me or loose their own jobs to create a reason to fire me because I refused to participate in the illegal & unethical business practices my superiors were demanding I participate in. Mr. Beckham worked tirelessly to protect my job & my reputation by hitting the agency & the corrupt leadership from every angle possible, to include involving Congress & other federal officials in the matters that pertained to my employer's deliberate violations relating to federal laws & policies to include their attempts to force me to misuse taxpayer money. Without Mr. Beckham's foresight and preparations of ten steps ahead of their next moves, I would have been another statistic of the whistle blower that got stomped by "the man". But I am not, in fact I was compensated for the hell they put me through, the lies in my records were removed & the actions taken by this attorney had far reaching consequences for the leadership members who perpetrated this attack as the agency has now three years later been cleaned out of most of the major players at that federal agency.

Genuinely Works Hard for Everyone He Represents – Highly Recommended!
I was lucky enough to be represented by Mr. Beckham in a criminal appeal (along with several other people he was representing in similar cases). I had been fined and sentenced to jail time beyond what was allowed by the law. Mr. Beckham did not stand for this! I learned, though my experience with him, that he is an honest and hardworking attorney who fights to get the best possible outcome for everyone he serves. He definitely proved this by the work he did my case (and from what I saw him do at the Court of Appeals in the other cases he argued on the same day). I was amazed when he prepared a 25-page written argument, on my behalf, which turned out to be irrefutable! And, when it came to the oral arguments in my case, he did an outstanding job when he took on the 3-Judge Panel at the Cheyenne River Sioux Court of Appeals. This is a hardworking attorney who I believe is a great legal thinker; it shows in his writing and arguing skills. I was lucky to have him in my corner fighting for me - I won.

Excellent Attorney
dismissed. The case can be reviewed in the listing of Appellant cases on the Cheyenne River. He is quick, very intelligent, young and qAttorney Brandon Beckham was the attorney on a case here in the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Courts, Eagle Butte, SD where he was employed. He helped us file a Criminal Appeal Case that he won where Judge Gunville was retrying my son on a case that had already been dismissed. The case can be reviewed on the list of Appellant cases on the Cheyenne River. He is quick witted and very intelligent. On a scale of 1-10, I give him a 10. Thank you for giving us this time to recommend attorney Beckham. Vivian

Dedicated to Fighting for His Clients
An intelligent attorney who cares about his clients cases and who really fight to protect their rights and to get them the best result! This guy is brilliant when it comes to legal research and writing. Mr. Beckham did not stop fighting for me until we had won. Not only is he an amazing lawyer, but he is also caring and actual listens to those he represents.
