Andrew Dalton


Senior Partner, LLB Solicitor Advocate

I'm Andrew Dalton, Senior Partner at White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors. I'm a court room lawyer and a solicitor advocate with 20 years experience. I qualified as a barrister in 1993 and cross qualified as a solicitor in 1997. I currently ride a Triumph Explorer 1200 throughout the year.


"Representing injured motorcyclists and the bereaved families of motorcyclists is a special responsibility for me, we're a small community and we need to look out for each other."


"Most of my work is catastrophic injury or where skilled workers lose their ability to earn due to injury. My clients and their families rely on my skills, experience and trial lawyering nerve. I'm a recognised leader in my field by Chambers, the independent guide to the legal profession, and my own professional body has placed me on the specialist panel of personal injury lawyers. I am also a fellow of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers - dull but reassuring.

My profession and the insurance industry know both my firm and I are expert in our small focused field. We take on and win cases others think are unwinnable."

Andrew took a career swerve in 1988 when his entry into HM Forces was postponed by a motorcycle accident which left him with a steel pin in his ankle. Unimpressed by his own solicitor, he decided he could do a better job for injured motorcyclists, and began his legal training.

His formal qualifications are impressive, an honours degree in law, a qualified Barrister (1993), Solicitor (1997) and Higher Courts Solicitor Advocate (2000), as well as a Personal Injury Panelist (1999). He is also a Fellow of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. Chambers (the leading independent guide to the legal profession) rates him as "a leader in his field".

He is regularly instructed as trial lawyer by other firms of solicitors who need to bring in real heavyweight experience of motorcycle trial work. He is also authorised to provide continuing professional development training to other solicitors. Andrew has been a regular motorcyclist for over 25 years and was a motorcycle courier for two years prior to and throughout university and his barrister's training.

In his spare time Andrew is a fully qualified amateur boxing coach at his local club in Aylesbury and a keen surfer.

Andrew also represents bereaved families of motorcyclists without fee at Coroner's Courts, as do a number of practitioners at White Dalton.
