Gloria Becker’s mantra is keep the peace, but kick some (bleep!) and take names in the meantime.Gloria is a civil litigator who has spent her career defending doctors, hospitals and businesses in complex litigation matters. After practicing law for many years with a large firm, and soon after having her third child, Gloria realized the potential for building a law firm from scratch so she joined forces with 4 law partners, whom she also calls great friends, and they created a civil defense firm where she has been litigating ever since. Gloria is a dedicated and fearless advocate for her clients and she thrives in the courtroom defending the rights and preserving the livelihood of her clients. Equally as important to her professional work, is the work she does to give back to this community. In addition to serving on the Board of Directors at the YMCA of the Triangle, Gloria is Chair of the Board of Trustees at Saint Mary’s School, an independent all-girls school, and her high school alma mater, that focuses on the transformative experience of young girls while preparing them for college and life. There is no greater gift than giving back to those who contributed to your success and Gloria believes that now, more than ever, is our time to ensure that young women are lifted, mentored, respected and their voice amplified so that all the world can benefit from their greatness. You need to KNOW her!
