Paul Dalton has over 30 years of experience in handling a wide array of civil legal matters, from consumer complaints about businesses to complex commercial business litigation, including disputes arising from contracts, business torts, and other actionable business conduct, as well as obtaining equitable relief through injunctions and restraining orders.  His practice has encompassed niche legal areas, including construction and technology, as well as healthcare representation, for which his background as a Registered Pharmacist provides a practical understanding of issues facing healthcare professionals and entities.

Prior to the formation of DALTON LAW, Paul was a Senior Shareholder at Cowles & Thompson, P.C., a well-established mid-sized law firm based in Dallas and, earlier, was a partner with Jackson Walker, LLP, one of the largest law firms in Texas.

Paul has represented U.S. and foreign individuals and businesses in Texas state and federal trial courts and has argued appeals in several of Texas’ intermediate courts of appeals as well as in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

An important part of Paul’s practice has been to help clients avoid foreseeable lawsuits by assisting them in evaluating, negotiating, or drafting business documents and advising them on conducting their business affairs.

Paul is a Certified Mediator and has participated in hundreds of meditations as either the mediator or an advocate.
