Dalton has experience, temperament to be judge

text size: AAA

Fairness -- that quality that we all look for in judges -- can only come from jurists who are both experienced in the intricacies of the law and intelligent enough to apply their knowledge to the specifics of a given case. The sustained attentive excellence of John Dalton's career so far has convinced me that he is the best choice for Kane County Resident Judge, 2nd Subcircuit.

Having graduated with high honors from Augustana College, John attended the University of Illinois College of Law where he served as associate editor of the Law Review. Even as a law student, John earned recognition for his understanding of both civil procedure and trial advocacy.


John has been a trial attorney for 25 years, handling all types of cases for all types of clients. He has worked at prestigious law firms as well as in the law departments of multinational corporations. In Cook County, he served for 10 years as an arbitration chairman, managing a courtroom, ruling on objections and rendering decisions in hundreds of cases. At present, he owns a practice in Elgin, advising clients about wills and trusts and pleading their cases in family court and criminal actions, often pro bono.

Dalton's extensive experience and subtle intelligence are the qualities that will enable him to be fair. He knows the law and he can handle the facts. Further, as his friend and neighbor, I know that he will treat every single person who comes before him with dignity and respect.
