    Attorney Profile

    During his nearly 30-year legal career, Tim Becker has become known and revered as one of this nation’s leading truck crash attorneys. Through his work at Dollar, Burns & Becker, Tim has litigated truck crashes cases in 38 of the 50 states and won millions of dollars in settlements for his clients.

    For Tim, the settlements are not what matters. It’s being able to provide comfort and hope for the families of truck crash victims. “I have spent my entire legal career dealing with families who have lost loved ones, often days after it happened.”

    “When we first meet the families,” Becker says, “they are at the absolute lowest point of their lives. As we figure out how and why the unthinkable occurred, we see them come around and have that hope and sense of purpose back, pursuing the case to prevent it from happening to another family.”

    He works alongside the other truck crash attorneys at Dollar, Burns & Becker to alter laws at the local, state and national level as well as truck company policies and procedures to ensure these types of accidents don’t happen again in the future.

    A 1988 honors graduate of Rockhurst College, Mr. Becker obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Law in 1991. The Missouri Bar admitted him to practice that same year, and he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern and Western Districts of Missouri.

    A consummate professional and fully committed to his practice, Mr. Becker is a State Advisory Board Member of the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America, a member of the American Association for Justice's Truck Litigation Group and a member of the Association of Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America, the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association and The Missouri Bar. He also serves on the board of governors for the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys as well as co-chair for the organization's Judicial Outreach Committee.
