Smith was born in Kirksville, Missouri on December 10, 1970.  Raised in Burlington, Iowa by his school teacher father and homemaker mother, Dusty matriculated to the University of Iowa.  Upon graduation with a minor in History and a major in Political Science in 1993, Dusty spent a year back in Burlington as an auctioneer for Auctions by Smith, a company formed by his parents in 1974.

Dusty graduated from Drake Law School in Des Moines, Iowa in 1997.  Dusty spent a year with Polk County Legal Aid providing legal services to the indigent in Des Moines.  He then spent 10 years in private practice with large law firms in Des Moines.

In 2008 Dusty decided to start Smith Law, P.C. to get back to the ideal of helping clients on their terms and not at the terms thrust upon them by the large firm corporate mentality.
