Thank you to everyone who helped Becker Law Office support the American Red Cross at the 10th Annual Wrapped in Red Gala on February 15th at the Omni Louisville Hotel. This gala is the signature event of the American Red Cross Louisville Area Chapter each year, and all proceeds benefited American Red Cross community programs.
The evening’s festivities included a three-course dinner, a silent auction, and a performance from American country music duo Thompson Square. Some guests also opted out of the dinner portion of the gala, and instead attended the Red Lounge, which featured an open bar, hors devours, and a silent disco.
The Wrapped in Red Gala has become one of the biggest philanthropic events in the Louisville area, and was supported by many notable sponsors, including our team here at Becker Law Office. For further information on this event, visit the Wrapped in Red Gala page.

Gary Becker, the founder of Becker Law Office and a trailblazing attorney, showed care and compassion to his loved ones and to the many clients the law firm represented.
Becker died on June 21, 2018 at age 79 in Santa Barbara, California, where he had moved in the years since retiring from practicing law to be near his children and grandchildren. He will be missed by his colleagues and former employees at Becker Law Office who were inspired by his example.
His drive and determination to help people in need continue to guide the Becker Law Office’s commitment to serving clients and treating them with compassion and respect.
After becoming a respected trial lawyer in Southern Indiana, Gary Becker founded the Becker Law Office in Louisville in 1985.
who joined Gary Becker as a young lawyer and now serves as managing partner of Becker Law Office, said that Becker was the first plaintiffs’ attorney in Louisville to advertise on television for personal injury cases. Renfro said Becker’s ads had helped regular people understand that they could afford a lawyer to hold insurance companies accountable because the firm did not charge a legal fee unless the client received compensation through a settlement or jury award. It’s a practice the law firm still follows.
“He was very interested in the little guy getting a level playing field against the rich and powerful,” Renfro told the Louisville Courier Journal.
In the Courier Journal article about Becker, Kentucky Bar Association President Doug Ballantine described Becker as a pioneer in pushing for lawyer advertising and making it acceptable and noted that many other attorneys in Louisville and throughout Kentucky have followed his lead.
As advocates for ordinary, hardworking people dealing with difficult circumstances, Becker Law Office continues to honor our founder’s commitment to justice for those who have been injured by the negligence of others.
There is a new app in town. Unlike any other on the market, the Drive2Win app actually rewards players (drivers) for keeping their hands off their phones while behind the wheel. Players may accumulate points that are redeemable for prizes. While there have been many novel ideas and mobile apps designed to restrict phone use while driving, none have provided a fun motivation for doing so.
Moved by the needless trauma of tragic stories of deaths and injuries resulting from distracted driving, a local advertising executive and digital agency have teamed-up to build a mobile app designed to heighten awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Louisville-based Becker Law Office is underwriting the creation of the Drive2Win mobile app, which complements much of the firm’s marketing messages admonishing distracted driving.
John McCafferty, president of McCafferty Advertising, brainstormed the idea behind the Drive2Win app. For the last 18 months, he has working alongside Mediaura, a Jeffersonville, Indiana-based digital agency, on the design and functionality of the app. “I have always wanted an opportunity to use my creativity for making a difference in society,” said McCafferty. “Research shows that more than 75 percent of drivers who text-and-drive believe they can do so safely. That’s a huge problem. If people use the app, which will reward them for safe driving, this game could change people’s habits – and save lives.”
The Drive2Win creators are launching the game in Louisville with plans to roll it out later throughout Kentucky and eventually nationwide. For more information about the Drive2Win app and links to iTunes and Google Play app downloads, please visit www.Drive2Win.com.
