About me

Dallas limits his practice to helping people injured in car accidents, as well as pedestrian, bicycle and motocycle accidents.  He also consults on DUI/DWI related matters.


Dallas is a third generation lawyer and lifelong resident of Spokane. In 1995 he earned the rank of Eagle Scout and graduated from Gonzaga Preparatory School. He studied Psychology at Gonzaga University and attended their study abroad program in Florence, Italy earning his B.A. in 1999.  That fall he started at Gonzaga University School of Law has been licensed to practice law in Washington State since 2002.


Dallas, his wife and three boys live in the Downriver area of Spokane, Washington.  He enjoys playing sports with his boys and walking the family dog, Bailey, around the neighborhood park.  Each year he runs in several local races including the Couer D'Alene Half Marathon.  In the winter you can find him cheering for the Gonzaga's basketball teams.

  • Rebecca J Sheppard

    I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. My professional relationship with Dallas originated several years ago when our firms shared a mutual client. Since that time, I have developed the utmost respect for Dallas and everyone at Cooney Law Offices. Because my practice area is bankruptcy, I often meet with clients who are also in need of representation in personal injury, family law, and criminal matters. I always refer those clients to Cooney Law Offices and to Dallas specifically when the matter involves his area of expertise. I have received only positive feedback from those referrals and will continue to recommend Dallas and his firm with confidence.
