Ms. Dalton doesn’t give the state the benefit of the doubt when it comes to defending
her clients’ freedom. Aggressively scrutinizing and attacking the state’s evidence
and charges can make a huge difference in obtaining the best possible results. Once
an accusation is made, as an extremely detailed-oriented criminal defense attorney,
Ms. Dalton takes the trouble to carefully go through all the evidence submitted by
the government and to conduct an independent investigation, often including consulting
with experts on possible technical defenses (seeDUI Science, drug DUI and other
DUI defense information on this website for more specific information).
Procedural rules and statutory defenses are also important parts of fighting any
criminal case. A criminal defense lawyer with thorough knowledge of these laws may
be able to use them to the advantage of a person accused. Through pre-trial motions
and aggressive litigation, Ms. Dalton has obtained favorable results including dismissals,
acquittals after trial and significant reduction of charges and sentences in a wide
variety of serious cases.
Sometimes things are not as law enforcement makes them seem and sometimes officers
make serious mistakes that violate the rights of the accused. Ms. Dalton uses a
cutting edge approach to litigation, keeping up on recent developments in the law,
science and technology. Ms. Dalton has a proven track record of holding the government
to its duty of complying with the rules and using their mistakes to her clients’
When clients need to take their case to trial, Ms. Dalton is an experienced and successful
trial attorney. In addition to knowing how to develop a case for litigation, having
a lawyer with the skills to get results from a jury is crucial. Sometimes pre-trial
resolution is not a satisfactory option. In those cases, Ms. Dalton is not afraid
to dig in her heels and take off the gloves. With years of experience and superior
skill in presenting cases to the jury, Ms. Dalton is never afraid to get into the
fight. Sometimes, that’s just the best option. Either way, prosecutors will carefully
reconsider their resolution option before picking a fight with a formidable opponent.
Having an unwavering trial lawyer on your side gives you a fighting chance.
Whether or not charges have been filed, if are suspected of committing a crime, getting

DUI charges. In felony matters, Ms. Dalton works the case thoroughly from the beginning.
We use professional investigators to explore possible defenses, look for witnesses,
and to scrutinize the state’s evidence and we often hire seasoned experts to analyze
the state’s evidence and give testimony at trial. An expert may review the processing
of forensic evidence or explain issues with the state’s toxicology laboratory’s processing,
dispute the state’s expert witnesses regarding drugs and intoxication, or to dispute
the state’s accident reconstruction evidence.
