TOP ATTORNEY

PERSONAL INJURY

David S. Becker

Founding Partner, Becker & Lindauer

Mr. Becker has spent decades representing the injured. Everyday he fights back against the callousness exhibited by insurance companies, ensuring that the rights of his clients are fully protected.

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, where he graduated fifth in his law school class and participated in Stetson’s Moot Court Board.

 

After graduating law school, he gained valuable trial experience 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, representing the State of Florida in cases involving serious felonies, often pursuing hardened habitual felony offenders.

 

In 1997, Mr. Becker was asked to join a prominent Bradenton law firm and devoted his practice to the representation of those injured as a result of the negligence of others. Perhaps his proudest accomplishment is achieving Board Certification as a Civil Trial Specialist in 2010, something only a small percentage of Florida attorneys ever attain.

 

In 2020, Mr. Becker and his partner, Danielle Lindauer, opened up their own practice dedicated to the representation of the injured. Together they are putting their decades of experience to work for the seriously hurt.

 

Mr. Becker’s pride and joy is his family. He has been married since 1986 to his beautiful wife, Rina, who teaches fifth grade at Gene Witt Elementary. Together they have resided in Bradenton since 1987 and brought up two amazing children. Their daughter, Jayna, is a University of Florida graduate and currently practices speech therapy in the Philadelphia school district. Their son, Jared, has settled down in Tampa, after graduating from Florida State University, and is enjoying all Tampa sports has to offer.​
