On Tuesday, January 31, 2023, the Supreme Court of Missouri ruled on the disciplinary charges filed against Springfield attorney Aaron M. Klusmeyer in relation to his guilty plea to domestic abuse cases. The case is titled “In the Matter of Aaron M. Klusmeyer,” with case no. SC99843.

Klusmeyer pleaded guilty to unlawful use of a weapon and domestic assault in the fourth degree, a felony and misdemeanor, respectively, before the Greene County Circuit Court. The case stemmed from the February 2019 incident, where Klusmeyer pointed a loaded gun at himself and his then-wife after the latter called a divorce attorney, a Springfield news report said.

The Chief Disciplinary Counsel filed an information relating to Klusmeyer’s conviction and sought the imposition of discipline against him.

Accordingly, the Court ruled against Klusmeyer in relation to his above-cited conviction.

The disposition reads:

“It is ordered by this Court that Respondent, Aaron M. Klusmeyer, is hereby indefinitely suspended with no leave to apply for reinstatement for one year from the date of this Order.”

The Order further provided that should Klusmeyer seek reinstatement the Court will consider whether he has had contact with the victim of the domestic assault to which he pleaded guilty and whether he participated in appropriate treatment pertaining to domestic violence.

Prior to the suspension, Mr. Klusmeyer practiced in Springfield, Missouri. He is listed as a member of the law firm, Lowther Johnson Attorneys at Law, LLC. He earned his law degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law, graduating in 2010. He has been admitted to the Missouri bar in 2010.
