Overview

Content is provided by the firm.

At Cutt, Kendell & Olson we approach each case as a team effort, putting the knowledge of all our attorneys to work for our clients. We serve people, not insurance giants or corporations, and we work tirelessly to obtain justice and maximum compensation on their behalves.

Cutt, Kendell & Olson operates differently than other personal injury firms. While most firms take as many cases as they can, we deliberately limit our caseload to make sure we get all the important details right. Our decades of collective personal injury experience have taught us that these little details can make a world of difference at the conclusion of a case. A limited caseload helps our attorneys to better focus on each case, work harder for every client, and make no compromises in the results we achieve. We also only handle cases with severe injuries - we know the lifelong impact a brain injury, spinal cord injury, or other major trauma can have on a person's life, and we are committed to helping injury victims and their families move forward.

Since 2000, CKO has obtained over $400 million dollars in settlements and verdicts for injured plaintiffs. More than 400 lawyers have referred injured clients to us because they know we get top results.

Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
My service experience with Cutt Kendell & Olson from start to finish was better than anything I hoped for! They were patient when I needed time to heal from major surgeries; they even hired a service to find the best doctor in the country for Thoracic outlet surgery. This was important after going from specialist to specialist for years only to have my injury continue to get worse. Without their help, I couldn't have gotten my surgery done which would've resulted in more loss of use to my left arm. They went above and beyond what was expected in everything they did for me and how they treated me. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an attorney that not only will get the best results possible, but also treat them with first class service from start to finish. If you want an honest and considerate attorney that knows their stuff, there is not a better firm out there!
