Dana Tippin Cutler
recently received the Alumni Achievement Award from the UMKC School of Law.   Each year, each of the University's 12 schools recognizes one of their respective alumni for their outstanding achievement and professional accomplishments.  This year, Dana was recognized by the School of Law at the Annual Alumni Achievement Awards Ceremony and Reception.


Charnissa Holliday-Scott recently gave a continuing legal education presentation as part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's CLE by the Hour Seminar.  The presentation, entitled "The Rules of Professional Conduct According to Motown," imparted information to the attorneys in attendance about their ethical duties and responsibilities using popular Motown hits as points of reference.

Keith Cutler obtained a favorable result in a recent jury trial in Western Kansas.  The plaintiff was rear-ended by the firm's client, and claimed neck, back, and knee injuries.   The neck and back injuries were undisputed and fully healed shortly after the accident.   The knee injury, however, was disputed.   The plaintiff did not report knee pain until 3 weeks after the accident, and after completing treatment for her knee, did not seek medical treatment again for almost a year.    The plaintiff asked the jury to award past and future damages totaling over 60,000.  The jury returned its verdict for Plaintiff, but awarded only $5,161.71.   Kudos to Keith for an excellent result!


Keith has also been invited to serve as a Master Instructor of the Ross T. Roberts Trial Academy.  The Trial Academy is designed to teach new lawyers trial advocacy skills.  Over the course of nine months, newer attorneys receive training and guidance from experienced litigators and judges, and are afforded an opportunity to practice trial techniques in a realistic courtroom setting.
