Stephen J. Becker is an associate at Glenda Cochran Associates Attorneys at Law in Birmingham.
As a personal injury attorney, Mr. Becker knows that when you or a family member is seriously injured or killed in an accident, it is life shattering. It is devastating not just for the victim but also for everyone around them. How life goes afterwards may depend on what law firm you choose to pursue justice against those responsible. The defendants in our cases are often large corporations, product manufacturers, health care providers, or government entities. They have big insurance companies and law firms on their side. As part of the team at Glenda Cochran Associates, Mr. Becker is an attorney who will fight for the victim at every turn. We know that the difference between winning and losing your case, or how much you ultimately receive at trial or in a settlement, often turns on unearthing the tiniest detail or piece of evidence. Not everyone has the dedication, persistence, and patience to find it. But we do. Mr. Becker is proud to be part of the experienced team of lawyers and staff at Glenda Cochran Associates that is committed to protecting the rights of individuals in a time of need after suffering a catastrophic loss.

He now has firm roots in Alabama, having earned his J.D. from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, graduating cum laude in 1996. He has lived in Birmingham for more than twenty-five years.
