About me

Michael Dalton is an attorney specializing in Serious Personal Injury law. A St. Louis native, he went to Duchesne High School where he played football. After graduating in 2001, Michael went to Mizzou where he majored in Political Science with a minor in English. After receiving his undergraduate degree, Michael continued on to law school at Mizzou where he graduated in 2008. Michael then decided to further his education and will be receiving his Bachelors of Science in Chemistry in 2012.


While Michael has always been focused on performing well at work and in the classroom, some of his proudest moments were when he was able to give back to the community by helping tutor incoming students, volunteering for the Special Olympics, and working with children at Cedar Creek Therapeutic Riding Center. Michael continues this commitment to giving by mentoring new college students and also spending his free time encouraging children to be physically active and healthy.

Michael has always been a leader on campus and in the community. Through that leadership, he formed bonds which helped him open a successful solo practice in the St. Louis area. He joins Page Bradley with experience and with the same commitment to excellence that has made him successful in his personal, academic, and legal endeavors.

  • Daniel Joseph Nolan

    I know Michael to be extremely knowledgeable and experienced in handling cases for clients that have been injured as a result of the negligence of others. I would recommend him to anyone who has been injured as a result of an automobile or truck accident, an unsafe condition in a private or public place, or who has otherwise been hurt through no fault of their own and believes they may be entitled to compensation.
