His litigation experience includes personal injury and death cases that have involved:

  • Premises liability
  • Road design
  • Aviation
  • Toxic tort

His commercial cases have involved:

  • Environmental litigation
  • Insurance coverage
  • Antitrust

Dale has significant trial and appellate experience in federal and state courts, with many of his trials involving claims where potential damages exceeded one million dollars.
