Our Firm History
Fighting for Full Justice for The Victims of Negligence
I’m Michael Becker. I founded The Becker Law Firm, and I’m proud to be a plaintiff’s trial attorney. Trial attorneys play a critical role in holding corporations, professionals, and people accountable for their actions and ensuring justice for people who are harmed by negligence.
Societies require that we have basic responsibilities towards one another. One of these responsibilities is exercising reasonable care to avoid exposing other people to the risk of unnecessary harm. Some circumstances, such as when a doctor is treating a patient, or when an electrical utility company is running high-voltages through a neighborhood require a higher standard of care for how much caution must be taken to prevent harm.
When people who should be exercising an appropriate level of care fail to do so, the consequences can be tragic. People can die or suffer devastating injuries from which they may never recover. An individual and their family may be left with life-long consequences because of someone else’s negligence. Having your life and the life of your family profoundly altered because of someone else’s carelessness.

The Courts Are the Only Recourse for Victims of Negligence
Our society uses many different tools to anticipate harm and prevent it from occurring. Some of the most valuable and effective include regulation, licensing, inspections, incentives/disincentives, fines, and public criticism. However, we only offer one form of tool to the families whose loved ones have already suffered from someone else’s negligence: litigation.
Our court system is the only place where the victims of negligence have a chance to hold the people, companies, and organizations accountable for their actions. It’s the only place where they might find justice for themselves and their families.
Full justice is rarely an easy thing to obtain. Companies and organizations accused of negligence – and their insurance companies – often field a team of attorneys and experts to prove they were not at fault. For a family experiencing what may be the worst thing that will ever happen to them, finding justice can look like an almost impossible task.
That’s where we come in. The Becker Law Firm fights to bring full justice to families whose loved ones have suffered life-altering injuries or wrongful death because another person or business was careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent. The Becker Law Firm attorneys are relentless in the pursuit of justice.
Selective about every case we take on
The Becker Law Firm isn’t a lawsuit factory. In fact, we’re selective about the types of injury and medical malpractice cases we accept. Our focus is providing legal services in cases that involve a permanent, life-altering injury or a fatality. We seek claims on behalf of clients who will not get better, and who may never be able to return to the same life they had prior to being injured. We often take cases that other firms find too difficult and have won well over $125 million in awards and settlements on cases that other firms chose not to take because they found it too challenging.
In most of the cases we represent, there are no cures available to our clients. No action by a court can restore the damage that was done or make the pain go away.
The only justice that can be obtained in these cases is full compensation to the victim for the harm that the negligent party imposed. This compensation is intended to cover the projected lifetime expenses necessary to care for the injured person, guarantee them a good quality of life, restore opportunities that they otherwise would have lost, make up for the loss of future earning potential, and make amends for the pain and suffering the individual and family experienced.
