Paul Arthur Bullman

also known as Paul Bullman, Paul A. Bullman

About me

I actively represent workers throughout the greater areas of Kansas City and Saint Joseph.  I was born near Saint Louis, Missouri and have lived my entire life in Missouri including Columbia, Kansas City, Saint Joseph and Saint Louis.

My passion for enforcing workplace rules on behalf of workers is rooted in my experience as an entry-level associate at a union grocery store.  I eventually left the grocery store to accomplish my goal of earning a college degree.  I worked through college stocking shelves, unloading trucks, delivering pizzas and about anything else you can imagine.  After graduating with a business degree from the University of Missouri, I was offered and accepted a management position at a major corporation.  I came to realize that many in middle and upper management are disconnected from the backbone of business – the worker.

As a result, I made the choice to attend the University of Missouri’s law school with the ultimate goal of developing a law practice which seeks justice for workers and holds, fully accountable, those who violate workers’ rights.

Each day I strive to level the playing field for workers so that each worker – no matter what position -  is treated with the same decency, fairness and respect that we should all expect in the work place.

I invite you to contact our firm for a no-commitment, no-charge initial consultation.  We welcome your call.  Please call 1-800-578-HELP (4357).
