After only four years in practice, Minneapolis employment attorney Dustin Massie has gained prominence in continuing legal education circles.
Massie “has established himself as a leader in the legal community, a sought-after presenter, a writer and a volunteer,’’ said Matt Nolan, a fellow attorney at Baillon Thome Jozwiak & Wanta LLP, who nominated him as an Up and Coming Attorney.
Massie’s practice includes representing workers facing discrimination, retaliation, harassment and other forms of unlawful treatment in the workplace.
Massie has served on committees within the Federal Bar Association, including co-chairing the Minnesota chapter’s Newer Lawyer Program; mentored law students, volunteering with the Pro Se Project; and served as a leader in the Twin Cities’ chapter of the Human Rights Campaign. He is also a frequent legal writer and presenter on various employment law topics, such as sexual harassment in the workplace.
Asked what he likes best about being a lawyer, Massie responded, “Helping people; it [the law] is a helping profession. I wanted to do work that is rewarding and has an impact on people’s lives.”
A native of Washington state, Massie has a B.A. degree, summa cum laude, in Spanish and international relations from Eastern Washington University in Spokane, Washington, and a juris doctor degree from the University of Minnesota Law School.
