Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that Nashville attorney Alé Dalton has been chosen to serve on the Hispanic National Bar Association's (HNBA) 2016-2017 Latina Commission. Ms. Dalton, who was appointed by HNBA President Pedro J. Torres-Diaz, is one of only nine appointees nationwide. Her term runs through September 2017, at which point she is eligible for a second one-year term.
“We are very proud that Alé was selected for this prestigious and influential position,” said managing partner of the Firm’s Nashville office Lela Hollabaugh. “She is a bright and driven young attorney who will undoubtedly honor and champion the worthwhile mission of the HNBA and Latina Commission.”
The HNBA’s Latina Commission focuses its efforts on studying and remedying barriers to entry and advancement faced by Latina lawyers. Latinas represent less than two percent of the total U.S. lawyer population and are the most statistically underrepresented attorney group in nearly every legal sector, particularly in private practice.
Ms. Dalton practices on Bradley’s Healthcare team, assisting clients with a wide range of transactional, operational, and regulatory matters. More specifically, she provides counsel on issues that arise during healthcare mergers and acquisitions. Her practice also includes advising clients on regulatory matters relating to the intersection of healthcare and technology. Ms. Dalton earned her J.D. (cum laude) from the University of Tennessee College of Law, where she focused her studies on issues facing telemedicine, especially HIPAA/HITECH compliance, state regulations, and antitrust law. She was highly involved in pro bono efforts, and was recognized by the University of Tennessee Center for Leadership and Service with a graduation service medallion, by the College of Law with a gold pro bono distinguished service recognition, and by the Tennessee Supreme Court as a 2016 Law Student for Justice. Ms. Dalton earned her B.S. (magna cum laude) from Lipscomb University.
In addition to her HNBA involvement, Ms. Dalton is actively involved with the American Health Lawyers Association, Latina Lawyers Bar Association, Nashville Bar Association, Tennessee Bar Association, and University of Tennessee Young Alumni Council.
