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 2001. 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 to complex DUI, vehicular homicide and Shaken Baby Syndrome cases involving forensic expert witness testimony.
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.
