While attending Elon, Dale was President of the Student Government Association and a member of the Pi Gamma Mu National Honor Society, as well as many other college organizations. After college, Dale entered the United States Army in the late Summer of 1968. After going through basic and advanced individual training (infantry) at Fort Dix, New Jersey, he attended, graduated and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in June of 1969 from the Field Artillery Officer Candidate School in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Dale’s branch of service in the Army was Air Defense Artillery. Over the next six (6) years, he held duty assignments at Fort Lawton, Seattle, Washington, Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland, Fort Lee, Virginia, and Homestead Air Force Base, Florida as well as overseas service in Viet Nam. Dale resigned his commission as Captain in 1975 to attend the prestigious University of Virginia School of Law. Dale graduated in May of 1978 with a Juris Doctor.

Dale is currently a Master in the William Bobbitt Inns of Court. The mission of the Inns of Court is to foster excellence among attorneys and judges in professionalism, ethics, civility and legal skills. Dale is also a member of the Civil Litigation and Business Sections of the North Carolina Bar Association and the Civil Litigation and the Criminal Justice Sections of the Mecklenburg County Bar Association. He is currently serving a third year on the North Carolina Bar Associationís Bench-Bar Liaison Committee.

Daleís experiences in law over the past thirty-one (31) years have largely involved trial practice in both Federal and State Courts, civil and criminal. In addition to numerous jury and non-jury trials, Dale has experience in countless motion hearings, mediations and arbitrations. Over the course of his legal career, Dale has practiced in multiple areas of the law including: white collar criminal defense, felony and misdemeanor criminal, civil litigation, personal injury, domestic and family law, employment law, workers compensation, real estate, trusts and estates, products liability, suits against the government, malpractice, contract and business/corporate transactional law. In the past few years Dale has become more specialized and today, Dale has limited his practice to four (4) principal areas: White Collar Criminal Defense, Civil Litigation, Estate Litigation and Business/Corporate Transactions.

Daleís philosophy about providing legal services is one of providing personal attention to each client. Most businesses and persons do not wish to be in litigation; however, if they are in litigation, they wish to have competent, experienced and zealous legal representation. In handling a clientís case with sensitivity, Dale will attempt to avoid the public media, unless the client wishes the news media to be aware of the litigation.
