Mr. Dahlin practices law in both Nebraska and California. He was admitted to the Nebraska State Bar Association in 1980 and practiced law in Nebraska, handling personal injury and workers compensation cases through 1984.

Thank you Dale!
Dale was great to work with after my car accident. He kept me informed at all times and explained things to me thoroughly. He always had my best interest in mind. He truly cares about his clients and it shows! I know that the settlement I received was solely based on his expertise. Thank you Dale!

Amazing Experience Considering the Circumstances
I was referred to Dale by a very good family friend, after ending my marriage of 25 years, it was far from easy emotionally, I have heard horror stories from others regarding their lawyers and I was very nervous in the beginning, Dale made me feel very comfortable, I gave him the information he requested and he responded promptly with the final outcome of all situations, he informed me of what our route would be and made that his main priority. My ex was an extremely difficult person that even his own lawyer could not bare to work with him, so having Dale by my side making sure I was protected in every aspect was an amazing and comforting experience. Would I go back to Dale if heaven forbid another legal circumstance arises and I am in need.. In a heart beat I would, he is such a genuine human being and his staff truely made me feel comfortable and that I was protected. They asked how I was doing throughout the process and I was always informed of everything, never left in the dark. I am very lucky that I worked with Dale and his staff because if it wasn't for them I would probably be stuck in the divorce mess still and having no luck. Again I want to make it public and say Thank You again Dale for doing such an amazing job!
