Field Representative in IOWA
Dennis Beck worked on the railroad for 33 years, twenty-five of them doing signal maintenance in Iowa. Dennis spent fifteen years as a Local Chairman and four years as Vice General Chairman, and was active in securing contracts and benefits for his fellow union members.
After an injury in 2003 took him out of service, Dennis witnessed firsthand the role that FELA attorneys play in getting fair compensation for injuries and better safety rules for the workers. He said, “The Yaeger firm really helped me and my guys in the field. After I left the railroad I wanted to give back. I wanted to use my experience to stand up for what is right, get the word out, and help people.”
Dennis lives in Le Grande, Iowa. He spends his time hunting, fishing and woodworking, and he is a former Saddle Bronco Riding State Champion. He will be representing the FELA lawyers at YJB in Iowa and throughout the country.
