About Joseph H. Beale obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston University, graduating cum laude and becoming a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society. He holds a law degree from the American University Washington College of Law.

After obtaining his law degree, Mr. Beale opened his own practice in Arlington County, where he specialized in criminal defense, traffic cases and juvenile law. He quickly became one of Fairfax County's leading legal advocates for children who were involved in abuse and neglect, contested custody or divorce proceedings. Following his solo practice, he joined Legal Services of Northern Virginia and was a member of the firm's family law task force for three years, representing indigent clients who were often victims of domestic violence. For the next 10 years, Mr. Beale was employed by Regan Associates, Chartered, in Washington, D.C., and expanded his practice areas to include immigration, bankruptcy (Chapters 7 and 13), personal injury, landlord-tenant law, consumer law, and wills, trusts and estates. Prior to launching Joseph H. Beale, Attorney At Law, PLLC, he was employed by John A. Boneta and Associates, PLLC, a prestigious boutique firm in Falls Church. Whether representing a client charged with a serious criminal offense, an asylum seeker facing deportation, an abused child or a battered spouse separating from her husband, Mr. Beale has demonstrated time and again that he is a tenacious, effective and caring advocate and litigator.

Mr. Beale is a member of the District of Columbia and Virginia bars. In addition, he is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit.
