Why should I hire Paul W. Burmaster?
Experience counts in any type of criminal case. For DUI cases, this is
especially true. The long-term costs of a drunk driving conviction are
very significant for any driver. Workers who depend on their drivers'
license to get to work, families who need a licensed driver to provide
transportation, and students all face serious consequences after a DUI
/ DWI arrest.
Kansas City attorney Paul W. Burmaster takes an active, hands-on approach
to every case. A skilled trial lawyer, he handles all aspects of criminal
cases. In criminal cases, he aggressively seeks bond reductions, dismissals,
and other positive results for his clients. As a DWI & DUI attorney,
he works to eliminate or reduce reinstatement fees, insurance rate increases,
fines, and jail time. He has been awarded as a
2012, 2014 & 2017 Client's Choice lawyer under the DWI category on Avvo.
Experience on Both Sides of the Law
Mr. Burmaster served for years as a prosecutor in the state and city courts.
His understanding of the legal requirements for effective prosecution
helps the people he defends today. A long-time student of drunk driving
legal issues, Mr. Burmaster has provided legal opinion and commentary
for the Kansas City Star, Channel 4 News, and other local news organizations.
He instructs other attorneys about drunk driving defense in legal education
courses, and he attends these courses himself nationally, including at
Harvard. Mr. Burmaster is a member of the National College for DUI Defense
and a Governor for the Kansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
