To Joe Cunningham, every client is a someone. Someone who needs help, a voice, justice, and to not be looked at as just another case or number. This way of thinking came long before he became a lawyer or a congressman.
Joe recalls growing up in Kuttawa, Kentucky, population 500, where his father, Bill, ran a small law practice. On a regular basis, he witnessed firsthand the practice and importance of treating everyone with kindness and respect — particularly in a professional setting.
“I remember how dedicated my dad was to the practice with many nights him coming home and, after supper together, him slipping off into his office to return phone calls from clients,” Joe says. “Our number was always listed in the phonebook because he wanted people to have a way to get a hold of him. And I saw that respect reciprocated time and time again.”
