Mr. Joel James Beckman, Family Law Attorney, Santa Fe Springs, California. I retained him for my divorce. At first he begged me to take my case. I did not want to hire him, but he begged me to hire him, so i did. I gave him a retainer. Well, he would cuss me out in his office on certain issues. He was totally unprofessional and I am the paying client. He told me he was going to help immensely. So I retained him and gave him a retainer. The balance of the bill he was going to lien my house Well, when the real estate market fell, he quit my case. I would meet with this individual in his office and he would cuss me out. I mean really vulgar language and i am the paying client. I went to jail on a restraining order. I called him from jail and he cussed me out up and down. I am paying this individual for his services and this is the way he treats me. I ended up firing him. I do not recommend this lawyer at all. He lacks professionalism and he reneges on written agreements and on top of that he cusses me out. He has no business being a Family Law Attorney. I would fire him again and again. I do not recommend anyone hiring this lawyer. I truly believe that he violated the law by signing a contract that he would lien my house for the remainder of his lawyers fees. Is this the kind of lawyer you want to hire?
