Paul D. Cramm

Firm Overview

Johnson County Kansas Criminal Defense Attorney

When you are charged with a crime, it is not the time to pick a lawyer at random. You need a lawyer who has experience, practices exclusively in criminal defense, is known and respected in the jurisdiction where your case is charged, and is devoted to getting the very best result possible in your case.

I am Paul D. Cramm. I practiced law at two Kansas City law firms prior to opening my own law office in 2000. Since establishing this law firm, the practice has been exclusively devoted to all levels of criminal defense from misdemeanor offenses in municipal court to felony matters in the Federal courts of Kansas and the Western District of Missouri. I am qualified to provide defense in Capital and Death Penalty cases. My cases have included relatively straightforward charges of shoplifting and domestic violence to complex DUI, vehicular homicide and Shaken Baby Syndrome cases involving forensic evidence and expert witness testimony.  I have tried numerous sex offenses to jury acquittal including charges of Rape , Indecent Liberties with a Minor and Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Minor under Jessica’s Law.

Success in each case can be measured in different ways. The “gold standard” in criminal defense is outright acquittal of the charges at trial, or dismissal of the charges due to inadmissibility of evidence. Success in a manslaughter case or federal charges with damaging evidence may require extensive negotiations with the prosecutor for conviction on a lesser charge or a recommendation of probation as opposed to imprisonment. No matter what criminal charges you face, your defense should be thoroughly researched, meticulously planned and aggressively litigated. One of my criminal defense strategies is a simple one – I strive to work harder than the prosecution.

Skilled & Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer

I am licensed to defend clients in the Federal, State and Municipal Courts of Kansas and Missouri. I am also licensed to practice before the Federal Courts of Nebraska. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas where I was Phi Beta Kappa and a Golden Key National Honor Society member. My law degree is also from the University of Kansas, where I received the 1999 Fisher, Patterson, Saylor & Smith Trial Practice Award. I am a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Nation College for DUI Defense and The National Trial Lawyers Association. I have received an AV Preeminent Ranking from Martindale Hubbell and I have been recognized by Super Lawyers since 2015.
