Criminal Defense Attorney
Dustin J. CurryContact Dustin
Dustin Curry counsels and defends individuals during the investigation and prosecution of criminal charges in Kansas state and federal courts. He defends clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors—including drug crimes, violent crimes, property crimes, and DUIs.
Having tried more than 50 jury trials in both state and federal courts, Dustin feels his best in a courtroom. And his confidence is catching. Whether he’s arguing a dispositive motion to a judge or trying a felony case to verdict, Dustin’s clients know their case is in capable hands.
Dustin joined JHC’s criminal defense team with 10 years’ experience as a prosecutor. Dustin began his legal career in the Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office, where he served as a Deputy District Attorney supervising two separate criminal divisions and handling major felony cases ranging from aggravated assault to attempted capital murder. Dustin then transitioned to federal prosecution when he was designated a Special Assistant United States Attorney on the Violent Crimes Task Force.
During his career as a prosecutor, Dustin gained first-hand knowledge of prosecutors’ pre-charge involvement in the investigation process, charging assessments, plea requirements, trial protocol, and sentencing objectives. Now on the defense side, Dustin uses his considerable insight into the prosecution to advise his clients regarding the best approach for their cases.
Dustin is a member of the Kansas Bar Association, Topeka Bar Association, and the National College for DUI Defense.
