Mission and Vision
Beckett & Webber strives to provide quality legal services at reasonable rates throughout central Illinois with a focus in Champaign, Douglas, and Piatt Counties. The firm has always attempted to meet the legal needs of its clients in a broad array of practice areas as legal problems often spread to more than one area of the law whether it be criminal matters, family law, personal injury, real estate transactions, or estate planning. The attorneys of Beckett & Webber practice in civil and criminal matters, in state and federal court, at the trial court and appellate court levels.
Hoping to meet clients where they are and to have a presence close to the state or federal courthouse's where a client's case may be heard, Beckett & Webber has established offices in Urbana, Tuscola, and Monticello. This allows clients to minimize their travel time and to focus attorney billing to clients on legal services, not attorney travel from the office to the courthouse. The firm's multi-county presence facilitates familiarity with the attorneys who may be opposing counsel or prosecuting a case as well as a firm grasp of local procedures and the preferences and standard practices of the judges who may hear a case.
The attorneys of Beckett & Webber are a part of the communities in which they practice. The firm has lawyers currently serving on the faculty at the University of Illinois College of Law. Its attorneys have positions on hospital and church boards. Steve Beckett served two terms on the Champaign County Board. Chad Beckett writes reviews for the News-Gazette. Many of the attorneys at the firm have been a part of the community longer than they have been lawyers in the community.
