The Ballots Are In…

The Ballots Are In…

For the third year in a row the readers of Missouri Lawyers Weekly have voted Kaestner & Berry as a “Best Malpractice Insurance Provider”. We are honored to be the ONLY independent agency to receive this recognition.

As an independent agency we are different from the large companies.

  1. We do not take a cookie cutter approach. We work with over a dozen carriers in order to provide the best pricing and coverage to our customers.
  2. We are dedicated to lawyers. All of our clients are lawyers. We do not dabble in other areas of insurance.
  3. We are dedicated to lawyers in the Heartland of America.

Thank you for your continued trust in Kaestner & Berry Professional Insurance Services, LLC.

Best wishes for your Independence Day holiday!

Conflicts arising from Social Media and Technology Usage


The attorney-client relationship does not have to involve a face-to-face meeting or a signed engagement letter. An attorney-client relationship could be inadvertently formed if a client “reasonably relies” on what they believe to be the attorney’s legal advice through social media. It is possible that a short blog, tweet or other social media comment could expose a firm to liability or conflict a law firm out of a big case.

Risk Management Tips:

    1. Do not post anything on social media that could be viewed as providing legal advice. This includes avoiding providing one-on-one advice, soliciting more information, or expressing legal opinions online.
    2. Develop strong disclaimers to make it clear that no legal advice is being provided by the social media post and that no attorney-client relationship is formed.
