As an attorney in the firm’s Private Client Group, Katie Menard Dalton focuses her practice on all aspects of domestic relations law. Her areas of concentration include marital planning (pre- and post-nuptial agreements), divorce, custody, paternity, child support, alimony, asset division, modifications, contempts, and 209A restraining orders. Katie routinely handles high-net-worth divorces and high-conflict custody disputes.
In her practice, Katie manages all aspects of litigation. She is effective in forging complicated settlements, and is a skilled litigator when resolution is not a possibility. Her strategy throughout a case is client-oriented with close attention to the ever-changing needs of her clients.
With more than a decade of experience, Katie recognizes the client’s need for a confident and resourceful attorney, as well as a compassionate and supportive advocate. She works closely with her clients to understand their needs and goals.
Prior to joining Burns & Levinson, Katie was an attorney at Todd & Weld, where she also practiced domestic relations law.
