We would like to take this opportunity to dedicate our practice to our parents Harry and Lorene Cullan and to our brothers, Dave and Dan Cullan.
Our parents, Harry and Lorene Cullan were married in 1932 during the great depression. They had nothing and everyone told them they were too young. They defied the “naysayers” and were married 69 ½ years. They loved farming and never retired. Lorene passed away in March 2002 at the age of 87. Harry died three weeks later at the age of 88 – no doubt from a broken heart.
Harry and Lorene raised twelve children on a family farm and ranch in Nebraska. This included ten boys and two girls. They stressed the importance of getting an education, working hard and having your word be your bond. They made all of their children go to college. After college, four became farmers. Six of the twelve became lawyers and four of the lawyers obtained double degrees in law and medicine.
Dave was the second eldest in the Cullan family. He was the first to become a lawyer. He was passionate about family, his clients and the law. Dave and Dr. Dan Cullan founded the original Cullan Law Firm which focused its practice solely on personal injury and medical negligence cases. Dave was instrumental in starting the Omaha Food Bank, which became a model for food banks across the country.
Dr. Dan Cullan was the 5th eldest in the Cullan family. He was the first Cullan to become both a medical doctor and lawyer. He was a nationally renowned trial lawyer and advocate for children who suffered brain injuries at birth from other types of danger. When you are struggling to remove a child protective cap off medication or a poisonous liquid, think of Dan.
His legacy of protecting children proudly lives on through two of his sons, Dr. Pat Cullan and Dr. Joe Cullan. Pat and Joe are also medical doctors and lawyers. They are responsible for the largest medical malpractice verdicts in the State of Nebraska.
