SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - The family of Springfield attorney Dee Wampler announced services planned following his sudden death.

Wampler died Friday while working on a case in St. Louis.

Wampler took part in some of the biggest trials in Ozarks’ history. He even represented mob boss John Gotti when he was brought to the Federal Medical Center in Springfield in 2001-2002.

The Christian conservative was a mover-and-shaker in the community known by just about everyone and actively involved in civic causes, lecturing and writing books.
