    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. At his time there, he developed a skill for litigation and held an impressive conviction record. Since entering private practice, Michael has repeatedly distinguished himself as a leader in his field.  In each year since 2015, Michael has been nominated as a “Super Lawyer” by Thompson Reuters and has earned the prestigious “Top 40 under 40” designation by the National Trial Lawyers Association as well as the "Ten Best" Kansas Client Satisfaction Award given by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys.

    Michael believes the highest calling of a criminal defense attorney is to fight for someone that is wrongly accused, be with them through the process of being prosecuted, and walk out of the courtroom with them when a verdict of not guilty is returned. If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, call upon the award-winning legal services at Duma Law Offices today.
