Jamie Beck is the President & Managing Attorney of Free to Thrive. She founded Free to Thrive after providing pro bono legal services to human trafficking survivors and discovering that there was not a dedicated legal services provider for trafficking survivors in San Diego. She was so moved by this experience and the need for more attorneys to help trafficking survivors that she left private practice to launch Free to Thrive.
Prior to starting Free to Thrive, Jamie practiced civil litigation at Procopio, Cory, Hargeaves & Savitch LLP. Before joining Procopio, Jamie served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Michael M. Anello, Federal District Court Judge for the Southern District of California.
Jamie is a past president of Lawyers Club of San Diego and founded the Lawyers Club Human Trafficking Collaborative. Under Jamie’s leadership, Lawyers Club successfully advocated for a law to help human trafficking survivors clear criminal convictions related to their exploitation, now codified under California Penal Code 236.14. This law is a powerful tool that Free to Thrive uses to help its clients get a fresh start.
Jamie graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law where she was a member of the San Diego Law Review. Jamie attended law school because she wanted to help others and she knew that the legal system is a powerful tool to do so. Jamie is a certified yoga instructor, avid traveler and beginner surfer.
