Connor grew up in a family where the law was not simply a profession, but rather a vocation. Connor’s legal experience began early in grade school when he worked as a document runner and file clerk for Dalton & Associates. Over the years, Connor began working as a legal assistant to both the personal injury and medical malpractice teams.
After college, Connor moved to Burlington, Vermont where he worked as a clerk for an education law and insurance defense firm Lynn, Lynn, and Blackman (now Lynn, Lynn, Blackman & Manitsky P.C.). Before attending law school, Connor moved back to the Delaware area and resumed working for Dalton & Associates as a paralegal for the medical malpractice team.

Moore Invitational Moot Court Competition; and (2) the University of Las Vegas’s Frank A. Schreck Gaming Law Moot Court Competition. Mr. Dalton was a finalist in the William B. Bryant-Luke C. Moore Invitational Moot Court Competition which focused on multiple hot button civil rights issues. On behalf of the Villanova Law School Trial Team Mr. Dalton competed in the Annual Peter James Johnson National Civil Rights Competition.
