Biography

Dylan Eaton is a fourth generation Idahoan. After graduating from Seattle University Law School in 2003, he served as an Assistant Criminal Prosecutor in Vancouver, Washington, where he gained significant litigation and trial experience and occasionally oversaw the criminal unit when the City Prosecutor was absent. Then, Mr. Eaton worked at a private firm in Seattle, Washington, handling various civil litigation matters, including construction defect and personal injury cases. In fall 2007, he moved to Boise, Idaho and has since worked for private civil litigation firms handling a wide range of legal matters, including in the areas of healthcare, corrections, employment and product liability.

Mr. Eaton almost exclusively represents defendants. He can often be found happily defending doctors and other medical providers and staff in litigation or administrative matters. Mr. Eaton proudly represents the State of Idaho and its employees (namely at the Idaho Department of Correction) in some cases as a Special Deputy Attorney General appointed on a case by case basis. In addition to litigation, he sometimes provides transactional services, such as preparing employment documents and contracts as well as handling construction matters. Mr. Eaton is adept at handling litigation, trials and appeals in all state and federal courts in Idaho. He has argued several cases before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Eaton is also admitted to practice in the U.S. Supreme Court.
