“We hired Paul Cramm for us after asking around for the best lawyer for an off-grid case. His name came up often. I called and we talked initially for quite some time. During that call he explained the good and bad of this type of case as well as a realistic viewpoint, i.e.: what could be the worst scenario and the best scenario.
We met with him in his office for a couple of hours going over the details of the case, how he would proceed, his expectations and his first reading of the case notes. Again, he was not negative or positive, just realistic yet hopeful that we could get a Not Guilty from the jury.
Paul was very good with his communication, both via email, phone calls and text. He kept us informed every step of the way (which consisted of a length of over nine months). We always knew what was happening at each development.
Paul’s knowledge of the law, specifically this type of case, was extremely comforting and encouraging as he could bring other case aspects into this one. He was also very smart and discerning as to what and what could not be brought to the juror’s attention.
In addition, his local knowledge came to be very helpful, local laws, the judges involved, the local court system, the demographics of the county and other lawyers that might be involved in the case. It was obvious, when we were around him at the courthouse, that he was well respected in the legal community. We also noticed that he had some smart mentors that were helping him through the case. He would email, text or call them from time to time to get insights that ended up being an affirmation of the direction he was proceeding.
In the trial, itself, which took, five days, his cross examination was deliberate and piercing while being respectful of the witness(s). His closing was terrific as he continued to hammer away at the two sides of the jurors thinking: Is this doubtful? Or truthful? And…Is there any Reasonable Doubt in their minds? If so, they must return a verdict of Not Guilty.
As it turned out, the case ended in an 11-1 Not Guilty verdict, which the DA’s office then decided not to re-trial. The verdict reached was not by any legal shenanigans or trickery on Paul’s part to get this verdict. He just took the “evidence” and showed, piece by piece and witness by witness, that there was Reasonable Doubt to all the allegations thus, the only choice they had was to return a verdict of Not Guilty.
We would highly recommend Paul Cramm as a defense attorney. We found that he brought considerable experience, pathos, smarts, knowledge and compassion.” – Steve S.
“I have never met an attorney like Paul Cramm. Most impressive, he responds immediately to every email, phone call and text…even on the weekends.
Paul has impeccable research skills. He will dig through every document and report to find the slightest detail. For example, I called him once and asked if he saw two specific words on page five of the police report. He responded by saying, “Yes, and it is stated in this report, this report and again here.” I have a serious eye for detail and this impressed me. He takes every avenue possible to achieve the desired outcome. Instead of reviewing photos of the scene, he came to my house and we walked through exactly what had occurred step-by-step. He even found precedence to discuss a previous false allegation she had made at my trial.
My situation was a Felony DV charge and I was facing a potential four years in prison. A false allegation, the psychological effects of this were devastating. Paul protected me and was by my side throughout the entire nightmare. Ultimately, the District Attorney dropped the charge after 6 months of refusing to take a deal. I had never been involved with the criminal court system before and I can’t image making it through that time without Paul as my attorney. If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, Paul is the best attorney in Kansas City to have on your side!” – Jeff P.
“Retaining Paul Cramm’s services when I was charged with a DUI offense was a great decision. He was very responsive and reassuring, and took immediate action to protect my best interests. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of my case, and I owe it to Mr. Cramm. I would without a doubt highly recommend his services to anyone who finds themselves in need of a great criminal defense attorney, and would also retain his services anytime in the future.” – Tyler W.
“I have found Paul Cramm to be a truly amazing attorney. He always conveys such a profound depth of competence, clarity, and compassion in our every conversation. Although I always realized that no defense attorney could assure the outcome of any case, Paul instilled great hope based on his remarkable ability to focus on every detail of our conversations and my many notes and distill them to a powerful, clearly articulated strategy for defense based on facts. He’s amazing!” – Larry R.
“Not only was Paul very helpful, but the entire staff was very nice, very understanding and respectful. It’s not an enjoyable event to have to endure, but Paul and his staff make the whole process so much easier to go through. Thank you for everything, I really appreciate it.” – Will T.
“Very professional lawyer, with your best interest at heart. Paul knows his stuff, and charges flat rates for an entire case, instead of charging by the hour. I like that because if needed, I know I can call him back with questions even after my case is finished. Even though I ended up on diversion (my choice), I know that if I needed to go to trial, Paul would have knocked it out for me. He got my bail lowered from $5000 to a $1500 PR bond, and made sure I was able to get home to be with my family (well worth the attorney charge, right there). If you are looking for a very straight forward attorney, who doesn’t play games, Paul is your man!” – Sean
“Paul did a great job on handling the case in regards to a domestic violence and kept us informed at what the case entailed. He knew the law and was aware that the prosecutor’s office was not handling this case with most recent and updated facts that they had possession of. I would definitely use Paul again if I had to find an attorney that I could trust and know that he would follow the law and do the utmost to help out with presenting the facts.” – Kevin
“I chose Paul Cramm to represent me as my criminal defense lawyer back in April. I made this decision after our first consultation, he’s sharp, articulate, and yet kept it real. I was extremely anxious about the case and bothered Paul often, however he always answered (or called back promptly) and provided me information in a way I was able to comprehend. Our meetings often covered the possibility of both outcomes (guilty/ not guilty), which at first made me skeptical… because I didn’t know if his intent was revolved around political negotiation. However we debriefed after every paper movement through the judges chamber, which (to me) was a raw indication of full commitment. We (Paul) went on to beat the case. In the court room he was brilliant! What I appreciated most was his straight forward attitude. We didn’t spend any time calling a donkey a small horse… we managed facts and won the case. In turn, we were very prepared no matter how the jury ruled. Paul has earned my loyalty and will remain on my P1 contact list.” – Bradley
“A year ago I was blindsided by a false allegation of sexual abuse. Not only was I ill-equipped to handle the physical, mental, and emotional toll of such a heinous allegation, but I was equally ignorant as to the severe penalties and consequences should I be found guilty.From the moment I retained Mr. Cramm, he exuded a confidence and calm that belied his knowledge and expertise. While each case and client carries with it its own set of variables, I am indebted to Mr. Cramm for his personal attention and efforts to assuage my emotional distress. With his help I was able to formulate an understanding of my plight and to recognize and accept the steps necessary to work proactively toward the desired resolution. There are obviously no guarantees in criminal court, and while I was well aware that no promises could ever be granted, Mr. Cramm was always realistic and reassuring without being blunt and pessimistic about our chances.Though it seemed like forever, in short order the jury unanimously returned a ‘not guilty’ verdict! For me, Paul Cramm’s excellence can never be overstated! I owe him my freedom!” – Scott
“I’m very impressed with how organized Mr. Cramm is and how effective he was in achieving the results sought in my case. Very responsive and tough negotiator. Very highly recommended.” – A Domestic Violence Client
