On the surface, choosing the right Birmingham, Alabama lawyer appears difficult. There are advertisements, clever marketing campaigns and attorneys that will do and say anything to get your attention. Despite these distractions, finding the best lawyer for your case is really quite simple. In Attorney Will Beckum’s nearly fifteen years of practicing law, his own clients have expressed the same desired traits over and over again. They want a lawyer they can trust, a lawyer with knowledge and experience to handle their case, and a lawyer who really cares and puts their interest first.
At Beckum Law, we are building a law practice focused on trust, competence and advocacy. These qualities inform every decision we make, from the respect we show to each client who contacts the firm, to the manner in which we litigate cases with both the short-term and long-term interests of the client in mind.
Unlike most law practices that try to handle every type of legal issue, we accept only cases where we have significant experience. Our Birmingham, Alabama law practice focuses on only three areas: construction law, employment law and probate and estate planning. For over fourteen years, Will Beckum has handled hundreds of cases in these practice areas in Alabama and other states across the country. Though he has represented large corporations in the past, he is now fortunate to choose to advocate for only individuals and small businesses in litigation to ensure they get a just solution for their legal concerns.
Attorney Beckum is one of the few Birmingham construction attorneys with significant experience litigating construction defect claims on behalf of homeowners, condominium associations and others who have suffered damage as a result of breach of contract, negligence, or fraud by contractors, architects, engineers, home inspectors, and insurance companies. In 2017, Will Beckum along with another local attorney recovered $5.9 million dollars on behalf of a Birmingham, Alabama condominium association after four years of highly contested litigation over construction defects in the development. His background as a former engineer, with a degree from Georgia Tech, gives his clients a specialized edge in the technical aspects of these cases. We handle construction defect cases in Birmingham and throughout the State.
Will Beckum’s technical background also gives him expertise in representing those injured in construction related accidents. On a naturally hazardous construction site, a company’s failure to provide proper equipment or follow the proper safety procedures can result in catastrophic injury. If you are injured in a construction related accident, a worker’s compensation claim may not adequately cover your medical and recovery costs. An experienced construction lawyer can aid in securing funds for your recovery from each responsible party. Will Beckum can also represent you in additional claims if the injury was caused by a third-party’s negligence or a defective product. Attorney Beckum has over fourteen years of experience working with nearly every type of construction related accident.
