"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."
