  • William G. Hammond

    Sam Cullan is one of the premier personal injury attorneys in our area. I have referred many cases to the Cullan law firm and I have always done so without hesitation. It gives me and my clients great peace of mind knowing that their case is being evaluated and handled by an a firm made up of attorneys and medical doctors. In this day and age where nothing seems simple anymore, it is great to work with attorneys who not only understand the complex legal and medical issues involved in personal injury cases, but who also have the communication skills to make the complex seem simple when discussing things with people like you and me. Sam Cullan is a great attorney and has my full endorsement. William G. Hammond The Elder & Disability Law Firm

  • Thomas Dickerson

    Dr. Cullan (Sam) is the preeminent medical malpractice attorney in Kansas City. How many clients with malpractice cases can say they have a doctor, a lawyer, and a board certified trial advocate working on their case? Sam's education and experience puts him in a unique position in medical malpractice cases - he knows what is required of the doctors involved in these cases and knows how to hold them accountable. On perhaps a more important note, Sam is an outstanding human being. He cares about his clients, cares about the community, and cares about improving patient safety. If you are looking for a medical malpractice attorney to represent you - or to refer to - Sam is it. Sam has my highest endorsement.
