Compassionate & Zealous Legal Representation

Aggressive & Skilled DUI Defense

Insurance companies know that a zealous and experienced courtroom advocate is a serious adversary and represents risk, which tends to make them more reasonable.  In addition to years of experience in intensive litigation, Ms. Dalton has a strong background in negotiations.  Every case is different and poses unique challenges, but we take our clients’ well-being seriously and we’re not afraid to fight hard to defend our clients’ rights.  

Picking up the pieces of your life after an auto accident or other injury can be scary and difficult.  We are here to lend you the support you need and vigorously defend your rights.  Our team handles injury and accident matters such as:

Ms. Dalton’s background in criminal defense gives her inside knowledge about the tricks and strategies of lawyers who defend their clients’ bad behavior.  Whether the behavior that resulted in your injuries was intention or negligent, Ms Dalton is not afraid to take the wrongdoers to task.  She understands the mentality and is zealous about helping people who have gotten hurt through no fault of their own.

In most cases, insurance coverage is available to compensate for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence.  The insurance industry, however, does everything in its power to avoid paying for damages so they can realize a huge profit margin.  Our team has many years of experience working to make insurance companies pay their fair share.  

Fortunately, Washington laws protect people who have been injured by the wrongful actions and negligence of others.  Lawyers like Ms. Dalton and her team can use those laws to fight for fair compensation.

Nothing can truly compensate for a debilitating injury or for the loss of a loved one.  Our legal system has decided that the only way to achieve justice for injured parties is to translate those losses into economic figures. After a serious loss, in the beginning, it can be really hard to measure the impact that the loss will have on a person’s life.  Unlike some lawyers, Ms. Dalton does not push her clients to take quick and easy, low-end settlements.  We work with our clients to find resources to get the care they need while we fully develop their case and build an understanding of the long term impacts.

For injury cases, our team takes the time and energy needed to work the case, we work with medical providers, consultants and experts to really understand the injuries and the mechanism of those injuries, so that we can fully evaluate the situation and understand the likely long-term impact on her clients’ lives.  This helps us convince insurance adjusters and lawyers on the other side, and juries - when needed - of the true value of our clients’ cases.  

Whenever we see a need, we will hire professional investigators and experts to help develop the facts and to give juries and understanding of the real impacts of real injuries, so they can make the right decision for our clients.

No one wants to look back, a few years after an accident, and ask themselves why did they let an inexperienced or high volume operation rush them into settling when the pain, suffering and inconvenience had such a lasting impact.  

Ms. Dalton personally understands the road to recovery from a serious accident and takes her client’s financial future and well being very seriously.  Ms. Dalton and the other lawyers on her team take an aggressive and detail-oriented approach:  we are litigation attorneys with a track record of fighting hard for our clients.  Having fighters in your corner maximizes your chance of being treated fairly and getting the compensation you need and deserve for your accident or loss.

Whether you’ve been injured by a careless driver, by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, by an improperly kept or uncontrolled animal, or by people or companies that just don’t care, at the Dalton Law Office, PLLC, we are here to stand up for you.


In matters of personal injury and loss of life, we are usually willing to take cases on a contingency basis. This means you only have to pay us attorney’s fees if we obtain compensation for your injuries or loss.  

Don’t let aggressive insurance adjusters bully you into settling your case for less than you deserve.  Before signing any documents, or giving statements to anyone about the collision and your injuries, and before accepting any offers of compensation from an insurance adjuster, get solid legal advice from an experienced, caring and dedicated attorney.
