Dustin Louis Mayer

I was born and raised in Dexter, Missouri. After graduating Dexter High School I attended Southeast Missouri State University and majored in Political Science and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I attended the University of Missouri School of Law and was a member of Dispute Resolution Journal. While at law school I met my wife Ashley and we now have two wonderful daughters and live in Dexter, Missouri. After graduating from law school I worked at the Missouri Attorney General's Office defending the Second Injury Fund and the State in workers' compensation cases. I then went to work for the Pemiscot County Prosecuting Attorney's Office as an Assistant Prosecutor. While there I was the lead trial attorney on several jury trials that included class A and B felonies. I then opened my own law practice in Dexter, Missouri and I primarily practice personal injury, criminal defense, workers' compensation and family law. In my free time I enjoy hunting, fishing, watching sports and spending time with friends and family.
