Michael C. Duma

Johnson County Criminal Defense Lawyer and Former Prosecutor

Michael C. Duma began his legal career as a criminal prosecutor in the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office. At his time there, he developed a skill for litigation and held an impressive conviction record. While a county prosecutor, Michael not only was successful in litigating criminal cases at the trial level, but also gained extensive experience in perfecting appeals in the Kansas Court of Appeals and Kansas Supreme Court.

Since leaving the District Attorney's Office, Michael has developed a reputation as an aggressive criminal defense attorney who skillfully advocates for his clients. Michael has been named a “Super Lawyer” by Thompson Reuter’s since 2015 and was selected by the National Trial Lawyers Association for their “Top 40 under 40” designation, an award received by less than 2% of Kansas attorneys. Michael is often called upon by local news outlets to comment on noteworthy cases and changes in the law. Michael currently serves on the Wyandotte County Bench Bar committee and is a member of the National Organization for Reformation of Marijuana Laws.
