PRINT

Dirk defends clients in civil litigation with an emphasis on toxic tort and asbestos litigation. He assists in the preparation of the defense of numerous asbestos personal injury suits, including the drafting of motions and supporting briefs. He came to Heyl Royster in 2016 following three years of practice at a successful St. Louis law firm where he represented clients in workers compensation, premises liability, and personal injury claims. 

A cum laude graduate of Barry University School of Law, Dirk is licensed in Missouri and Illinois and practices in both state and federal courts. He was a member of Barry Law Review. In 2011, Dirk was invited to join Pepperdine Law School's International Moot Court Team and competed in an International Moot Court Competition in London, UK. After graduation, he helped obtain millions of dollars in verdicts for those injured on the job, including wrongful death and catastrophic accident cases. Dirk has been blessed to learn the art of effective client representation from the nation's top trial attorneys in injury litigation and is now committed to using this experience to serve businesses finding themselves named as defendants.
