About me

Practicing law is our 8-5 job, helping people is our passion 24-7. Often times the two go hand-in-hand. We routinely help clients at all hours of the day and night. All of the attorneys in our office, myself included, are dedicated to helping our clients get the best outcome possible in their cases and dedicated to helping our community be a better place to live. We find that by supporting our community and causes in our community we end up helping our clients.

  • Michael Kenneth Daming

    I have known Justin Butler since law school, and his reputation as a knowledgeable and aggressive, yet conscientious lawyer has traveled with him from Columbia to the greater St. Louis area. I am confident that my referrals to Justin are in good hands, and recommend him without reservation.

  • Sean Patrick O'Hanlon

    During my time practicing in Troy, MO, I frequently encountered Justin in court and at bar association events. I know Mr. Butler to be a very effective advocate for his clients, and he is always professional and courteous to the court and fellow bar members. I would recommend this attorney.
