Kirby Beck is an expert who has outstanding credentials, experience, and saavy in the bike safety area.  I worked with him recently and would give him my very highest recommendation .

Michael R. Sieben
Sieben Polk, P.A.

I had the privilege of working with Kirby Beck on a catastrophic brain injury case. Our client, Scott Nelson, was severely brain injured while bicycling along a state highway.

Mr. Beck was instrumental in helping us achieve a fair result for our client. As an expert, he is an authority with vast experience in the bicycle safety world. He brought professionalism, expertise and credibility to our efforts on behalf of our severely injured client.

Mr. Beck was also accommodating and supportive of our many, many demands on his time and expertise. I will retain Mr. Beck to help us on any serious bicycle case which we become involved with in the future.

I would also be happy to discuss Mr. Beck further should one wish.

Very Truly Yours,

Kirby Beck was extremely helpful to us in understanding the dynamics of a complex bicycle crash where the bicycle collided with a firehose, lost a front wheel, and seriously injured our client. His thoroughness, knowledge, and competence resulted in an equitable settlement for our client. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any lawyer working on any aspect of bicycle litigation

I have known Kirby for 13 years and have been fortune to have been taught to be an instructor by him through the International Police Mountain Bike Association. Kirby's knowledge of bicycle safety is remarkable and is only surpassed by his ability to explain and teach. He has a gift to be able to impart his vast knowledge of cycling to even the novice listener. He excels at teaching both children and adults, and also teaching people how to teach. I know of very few people who are as passionate and knowledgeable as Kirby on the subject of bicycle safety. He also the nicest person you could ever meet, which makes working with him a pleasure.
