Attorney Profile

At the Law Offices of Dee Wampler & Joseph Passanise, Dee Wampler draws from more than four decades of legal experience in defending clients accused of an array of crimes throughout southwestern Missouri, including Springfield, St. Louis and Kansas City. As a Springfield native, Mr. Wampler understands the nuances of the Missouri court system, but he is an equally formidable criminal trial attorney in high-profile federal cases involving serious charges. His work has earned him recognition across the country and even internationally. Several nationally syndicated television shows, including "Saturday Night with Connie Chung," "Inside Edition" and ABC's "Primetime" have featured his cases, and Missouri Lawyers Weekly has showcased his work approximately 20 times.

Mr. Wampler has considerable experience taking on sensitive and difficult cases involving sexual assault and serious federal charges, and his track record of defending individuals accused of DWI and drug crimes is equally impressive. His comprehensive knowledge dates back to his time as an assistant Greene County prosecutor in 1967. Four years later, he had the privilege of being one of the youngest prosecuting attorneys elected in Greene County. In 1973, he moved to private practice and turned his focus to criminal defense matters.

Mr. Wampler has been involved as a former or current member of dozens of professional agencies and has served in a leadership capacity with several of these, including the Greene County Bar Association, the National District Attorneys Association and the Missouri Peace Officers Association. Recognized numerous times for his community service, he has been the recipient of more than 24 awards and commendations for his legal work, including a dozen listings in Best Lawyers in America*. Mr. Wampler graduated from the University of Missouri in Columbia with a B.S. in public administration and obtained his law degree from the university's law school.
