Attorney Profile

As a partner at Hunter & Cassidy, LLC, Dennis J. Cassidy focuses his practice on personal injury, generally handling cases that involve motor vehicle accidents, product and premises liability, nursing home neglect and animal attacks. Serving clients throughout Kansas City, Missouri, and the surrounding area, Mr. Cassidy also accepts insurance dispute cases.

After earning a law degree in 1997, Mr. Cassidy began his career working for a large insurance defense firm. In his current practice, he draws on the knowledge and insight he gained in that role to help negotiate fair settlements on behalf of his clients. Mr. Cassidy has built a reputation for holding insurance companies to their contractual obligations in a range of disputes, including those involving property and casualty, auto liability, business liability and life insurance.

Mr. Cassidy is sensitive to the challenges his clients and their families may face as a result of a motor vehicle accident or some other incident. He strives to see those injured by the negligent or reckless actions of others made as close to whole as possible, helping them to obtain compensation for their damages, including lost wages, unexpected medical bills, and pain and suffering.

While Mr. Cassidy works to facilitate settlements outside of the courtroom whenever possible, he will not be intimidated into taking an agreement that is not in his clients' best interests. He works with accident reconstruction and other professional experts, files petitions and motions, sits down with the insurance company or liable party's legal representatives, and attends hearings. Mr. Cassidy offers strategic guidance and keeps his clients informed of their options throughout the legal process so they are able to make important decisions that affect their cases, as well as their futures.
