William Brooks Beckum

Birmingham Employment Law Attorney

Will Beckum was born in Augusta, Georgia. Prior to moving to Birmingham, Alabama, he lived and worked in both Atlanta, Georgia and St. Louis, Missouri. He holds an engineering degree from Georgia Institute of Technology (“Georgia Tech”) and is a graduate with honors of Washington University School of Law in St. Louis.

While attending Washington University in St. Louis, Mr. Beckum was a member and editor of the Washington University Law Review. He also served as a judicial intern to the Honorable Michael J. Reagan in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

Mr. Beckum has over ten years of legal experience handling complex and often high stakes litigation throughout State and Federal courts in Alabama, Missouri and Illinois. Prior to becoming an attorney, he worked as a consulting engineer gaining vital experience across industries ranging from manufacturing to pharmaceuticals.

Mr. Beckum's trial practice focuses exclusively on litigation involving construction disputes and employment law matters. His background as an engineer provides unique insight into the often complicated and highly technical issues in construction defect cases. He also takes significant pride in being an advocate for individuals who have suffered unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation in the workplace.

Mr. Beckum resides in Birmingham with his wife, Katie, and their two daughters. Outside of the firm, he enjoys spending time with his family and is an active parishioner of Prince of Peace Catholic Church.
