About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.


I started my legal career as a Law Clerk for the Honorable Charles B. Blackmar, a Justice with the Missouri Supreme Court and former professor at St. Louis University School of Law. I went on to practice as a trial attorney for the Commercial Litigation Branch of the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. Following this position, I served as a Federal Prosecutor with an emphasis on prosecuting white collar crime, including bank fraud.

After leaving the government, I practiced law at Armstrong, Teasdale, Schlafly & Davis, the third largest law firm in the State of Missouri, where I focused on the areas of commercial litigation, personal injury defense, and white collar criminal defense. I opened my own law firm in 1988.

I attended St. Louis University School of Law where I was the Editor In Chief of the St. Louis University Public Law Review and received the American Jurisprudence Award. I attended college at the University of Missouri St Louis where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and received the Stuart and Evelyn Symington Scholarship Award (former U.S. Senator Stuart Symington).


For over 20 years, I have been a practicing trial attorney. I have litigated and tried cases on behalf of the NASA, the United States Air Force, the Mine Safety and Health Administration, the Motion Pictures Association of America, and Fortune 500 Companies. Most importantly, I have represented individuals just like you against some of the largest corporations in the world.

In 2003, I was recognized by the National Law Journal as National Litigator of the Month for obtaining an $18 million dollar jury verdict involving the death of a child. The Missouri Lawyers Weekly has listed me in the Top 10 jury verdicts in the State of Missouri. In 2011, The Dysart Law Firm, P.C. settled a case for $39.5 Million.

I want to represent you and use all my past experience and knowledge to help you solve your legal problems and see your case through to a favorable result. It will not cost you anything to speak with me about your case. Call me day or night or contact me online to schedule a free initial consultation.


My firm, when appropriate, may work together with other law firms around the country to make sure we are on a level playing field with giant corporations. If used, this team approach will be done with your knowledge and consent and will not cost you any more than hiring a single attorney or law firm. Moreover, if the team approach is used, I will still personally assist you with every aspect of the case.

To learn more about motor vehicle accidents or my firm, I encourage you to view our educational accident videos about car accidents, motor vehicle product liability, and pedestrian accidents.  We also feature on this website a number of truck accident videos.  I also encourage you to read the many informative articles about motor vehicle accidents on this website.

Excellent, Knowledgeable and Professional Attorney
During my entire case, Chris Dysart was prepared, professional, and explained everything to me. Going through my illness was a very difficult time for me and the Dysart Law Firm helped me every step of the way. The staff was very nice and helped answer my questions whenever I called. Chris Dysart was able to get the company to settle my case without having to go through a lengthy trial. I am so grateful to Chris Dysart and The Dysart Law Firm!

Integrity Matters
Someone I am close to recommended this law firm and everything she shared has brought me to believe that this law firm bases everything on their integrity. They care about their clients and the results their clients receive. I feel very comfortable recommending this law firm to others with personal injury or other legal matters.

I’d have no reservations in referring The Dysart Law Firm to people, they are good people to work with, period.
I liked working with The Dysart Law firm, they are nice people. Positive result with my lawsuit, happy with outcome. I think they definitely took the time to talk with me, always there to answer any questions I had. Really helpful, always took my calls. Always felt important, despite the fact that my case was small compared to their other cases, they never let me feel that way. I’d have no reservations in referring The Dysart Law Firm to people, they are good people to work with, period.

Chris Dysart is an excellent attorney. He knows what he is doing. He was honest and upfront all throughout my case and it ended in a huge settlement.

Unprofessional. Hired Dysart Law Firm to represent us and were abandoned by this law firm. Chris Dysart was incompetent and may have been experiencing personal problems that were affecting his ability to act as a professional. His consulting was incoherent and we couldn't make heads or tails on what he was actually trying to tell us. It was extremley difficult to contact him because he often never returned emails or phone calls. When he did, we were lied to on multiple occasions; he said he was processing paperwork about our case and he never did. We even did a lot of the legwork for this firm because we were tired of waiting for them to be proactive. Look elsewhere for proper representation.
