Daniel deLalla

Personal Injury Attorney

Daniel deLalla is a trial attorney who continues to have deep roots in the Tidewater area. Daniel represents individuals in complex personal injury matters as well as criminal defense cases. He spent the early part of his career practicing criminal law, including service as an Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney in Virginia Beach and Portsmouth. Daniel has represented hundreds of accused individuals in matters ranging from minor traffic infractions to serious violent crimes.

Daniel has appeared in the vast majority of state courts within the Tidewater area including General District Court, Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court and Circuit Court. He has also represented clients in both federal civil and criminal matters adjudicated in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. His focus on personal injury includes car accidents, trucking accidents, dog bites, slip and fall cases and medical malpractice, as he enjoys helping people in their time of need. Criminal and civil law are different, of course, as the standard of proof is lower in a civil case. But Daniel brings the same conviction he gained as a prosecutor to criminal defense cases and personal injury cases.
