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.
- 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.
- We are dedicated to lawyers. All of our clients are lawyers. We do not dabble in other areas of insurance.
- 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:
- 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.
- 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.
