Attorney Profile

Attorney Michael C. Duma of Duma Law Offices represents individuals across the Kansas City metropolitan area on criminal offenses ranging from drug crimes and DUI citations to the most serious felony offenses in state and federal court. 

Michael C. Duma began his legal career as a criminal prosecutor in the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, call upon the award-winning legal services at Duma Law Offices today.
