Attorney David Becker has dedicated his working life to assisting those who have been victimized by the negligence of others. Notwithstanding decades of service fighting for victims, He continues to be amazed at the callousness with which insurance companies treat injured claimants. It is his mission to ensure that our clients are not victimized a second time by such conduct.
Mr. Becker’s original plan was to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. As he says, “When it became clear that my skills as a musician would not foster such a career path, my focus shifted to law.” After receiving his undergraduate degree from The Pennsylvania State University, he relocated to the State of Florida and studied law at Stetson University College of Law. He is very proud of the fact that he graduated fifth in his law school class and was honored to participate in Stetson’s Moot Court Board.
After graduating law school, he earned his stripes seeking justice for those victimized by the criminal conduct of others. In 1988, he became a Prosecutor for the Twelfth Judicial Circuit in and for Manatee County, Florida, prosecuting serious felonies, often those involving habitual felony offenders.
In 1997, he was asked to join Steven E. Heintz in his vigorous representation of accident victims. It was then that Mr. Becker found his true calling. Perhaps his proudest accomplishment since becoming a partner in the law firm of Heintz & Becker is achieving Board Certification as a civil trial specialist in 2010, a certification that an extremely small percentage of Florida attorneys ever attain.
While he is very proud of his professional credentials, his proudest accomplishment is his marriage to his wife, Rina, and his two incredible children, Jayna and Jared.
