Although he spent his early years at Dollar, Burns & Becker focusing on cases involving nursing home abuse, his practice has transitioned almost exclusively to litigating truck crash cases.
“What we do for our clients is a lot like prosecutors’ work,” says Becker, “we are pursuing justice for people who are injured or killed in truck crashes. Our investigations always involve cooperation with law enforcement. We have the burden of proof at trial. If we don’t aggressively advance the case, nothing is going to happen."
He earned his undergraduate degree from Rockhurst College in Kansas City. Becker then attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, during which time he held a clerkship position for two years in the Consumer Protection Unit of the Missouri Attorney General’s office. Upon graduation, he joined the Jackson County Prosecutor’s office as an assistant prosecuting attorney where he worked with Tim Dollar. For five years, he tried felony criminal cases ranging from robbery to homicide. Several of the homicide trials he participated in were with Special Prosecutor Tim Dollar.
In January 1995, he left the prosecutor’s office and joined Tim Dollar’s law firm, where he began litigating nursing home abuse and wrongful death cases. Tim is now the managing partner of the law firm of Dollar, Burns & Becker.
