Attorney Profile

Focusing his practice primarily on criminal defense matters, Paul W. Burmaster is the founder of his eponymous law firm. Based in Overland Park, Kansas, his clients come from the greater Kansas City metropolitan area that encompasses both Kansas and Missouri, and he is admitted to practice before all state courts in those two jurisdictions. Mr. Burmaster's experience also includes personal injury litigation, in which he represents people who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties, and he also assists clients who have been injured on the job and who are seeking their rightful benefits under their employer's workers' compensation insurance coverage.

A significant portion of Mr. Burmaster's caseload consists of defending people who have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. He has been able to obtain favorable outcomes for many of his clients, whether through acquittals at bench or jury trials or through the negotiation of plea agreements with the prosecution. Mr. Burmaster continues to stay abreast of the latest developments in impaired driving defense strategies through his active participation in The National College for DUI Defense®, Inc. His other criminal defense experience has encompassed white collar crimes, drug possession and distribution, domestic violence, sex offenses, and homicide.

Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Burmaster spent several years as a prosecutor, and that experience has enabled him to often anticipate the types of tactics that he now faces as a defense attorney. Highly regarded by his colleagues, he has received a 10.0 "Super" peer review rating through Avvo and a "Distinguished" peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell. A former member of the board of governors of the Kansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Mr. Burmaster obtained his legal education at the University of Kansas School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1990.
