Jack Dalton

Upon his return to Seattle, he recognized the need for a community resource for individuals with chemical dependency issues and criminal records, and he launched a truly pioneering effort to provide housing, employment and treatment to these individuals. Jack Dalton had the dream that became Pioneer Human Services.

Jack Dalton of Dodge City was the first attorney in Kansas to try a case in which in-court photography was included, and now he has written a novel about the experiences of a country lawyer.
"It was the first time that cameras were allowed in court," explained Dalton, who served as Kansas Bar Association president in 1976-77, and was honored by the Kansas Bar in 1983 for "continuous, longstanding service on behalf of the legal profession, the public, and the association."
His book, aptly named A Country Lawyer, was published Dec. 9, 2009 by Strategic Book Publishing in New York. Dalton, 81, began the book after he retired from law 17 years ago. He admits that his book is autobiographical as well as fictional.
"A friend read it, and said, 'I can't tell what's true in it and what isn't.'" With a grin, Dalton admitted: "It's a novel and an autobiography!"
The truth in the book - as in Dalton's life - is as exciting as the fiction. Dalton has handled all kinds of cases, and traveled the world in his pursuit of his hobby of scuba diving. His experience from both endeavors is expertly woven throughout the book.
...
"My interest in scuba diving began in 1974, and by 1980, I became intensely interested," Dalton recalled. "My wife, Jane, was very tolerant! I went all the way to the Fiji Islands, always with a scientist, professors, or photographers on board. I began the book in Hawaii, and it took me nine years to write it."
Dalton, who graduated from Kansas University law school in 1953, has had his share of real excitement from the cases he handled in Jetmore for 12 years and in Dodge City for 28 years.
...
The case dragged on, until the day Dalton received a call from the opposing attorney asking to meet with him.
"I had decided to settle for a million," Dalton said. The other attorney offered $2.2 million before Dalton opened his mouth. "I told him I would think about it for a while!"
One of Dalton's criminal cases involved a 21-year-old who was drinking with other young men on a city street.
"He took a night stick away from a policeman, and hit him in the head," Dalton explained.
...
Dalton is known locally for suing the City of Dodge City and Ford County, asking the District Court of Kansas to direct the city and county to build the special events center that voters had approved as part of the Why Not Dodge? package. Dalton won this case, which he filed as an individual citizen.
