“Think not that I came to send peace on the earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law” Matthew 10:34-35
"Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I have come to divide people against each other! From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against—or two in favor and three against." Luke 12:51-52.
Bill Becker is an unapologetic "warrior for Christ." Always a Christian but not always a warrior, Bill saw the culture shifting from its moral base--the "Judeo-Christian ethic"--with little resistance from right-thinking moral Americans. From 1976 to 1984, Bill was a print and broadcast journalist anchoring and reporting for the local NBC-TV affiliate in Las Vegas, writing for Gaming Business Magazine and Variety and reporting for newspapers in Georgia and Las Vegas. Earning both Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees in Communication Studies from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, he toilded as a journalist for several years before deciding to go to law school.
Bill earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1986 and for 20 years labored unsatisfied in a civil litigation practice. Then in 2004, Bill experienced an awakening in his life and was "born again" (John:3) in 2004. Asked by his church pastor to conduct a Bible study class explaining why the County of Los Angeles redesigned its government seal to remove a tiny image of a cross,

Bill began to look into the matter. Having no practical background in litigating constitutional law issues, Bill was introduced to Dr. John C. Eastman, one of the nation's top constitutional scholars and founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and Manual Klausner, a co-founder of the libertarian Reason Foundation. Rather than conduct a Bible class, Bill recruited Eastman and Klausner to join him in suing the County to restore the cross. Although their effort failed, it inspired Bill to commit his practice to vindicating the rights of Christians and conservatives.
Bill is admitted to practice before numerous federal district and appellate courts, the United States Supreme Court and all courts in California and Colorado, but will appear pro hac vice anywhere in the country to defend our First Amendment freedoms. Bill lives in a predominantly liberal neighborhood in West Los Angeles with his wife Gigi and black Labrador Retriever Jessie.
