Dale was a great help to many people who had to untangle the legal system. I enjoyed working with him because he was smart, honest, and brave. A very good man.

I was pregnant with my daughter when I met him. He was so kind to excuse my active 2 yr old sons energy. He read through my paperwork and was so kind and wise. I needed hope! Thank you Mr. Nathan for letting me know there is hope. When this has past for my growing family I aspire to become even a fraction of the attorney you were.

Dale Nathan was one of those rare lawyers with integrity and principles, and the resolve to endure the reprisals for refusing to compromise his principles and willingness to forego the rewards others might offer align himself with the establishment. Dale Nathan was a strong advocate for addressing the systemic corruption of the Minnesota courts. Dale Nathan drafted several legislative bills on behalf of the Minnesota Judicial TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform)Movement from 2005 until he passed away in 2016. He was a mild mannered, soft spoken man whose words carried great wait amongst those of us who seek to restore Natural Law, the Rule of Law and the Constitution in these United States of America. Dale Nathan the man, his friendship, his energy, his knowledge and his wisdom will be greatly missed.

Thank you, Dale, for all the work you did with local Republicans in recent years, fighting for women, children, and all citizens' constitutional rights.

Dale was a wonderful man who stood up for the rights of protective parents and the safety of their children. He wanted to help and support those in need when others would not.
He will be greatly missed and was much admired.

Our sympathy to Dale's family and friends. We found Dale through his advertising for his next book of.personal stories of people with judicial injustices. He was there for us at a time when it seemed no one was listening or acting. Thank you Dale.

Dale Nathan was a very special man. An honest attorney, he helped many people, and he documented dishonesty and corruption galore. He will be missed.

Dale Nathan stood less than 5-feet tall, but he was a giant among the group of honest attorneys in Lawless America.

Dale Nathan was filmed for Lawless America...The Movie in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Rest in Peace Dale. You have done a wonderful job seeing through the injustices and have spent countless hours helping those who you knew were victims of it. You have done what you could, now let us continue to fight to fulfill not only your dream, but the dream of those who are falling victim to our broken system. I thank God for knowing and working with you.

Dale Nathan offered some help with my family court case; he was very knowledgeable and even though he knew the challenges were immense, he was not afraid to fight for the cause of justice, and to protect children from abuse. Dale you will be missed. Sending love and prayers.

Gone too soon Dale. You've made an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of so many. Your brilliance and steadfast dedication to improve the court system will never go unnoticed or be forgotten. You really have helped set the stage for those who share this passion. My wish is that your solutions to the problems see their day of being implemented. Gratefully, Lynda Simon

Dale and I worked together at Sperry Univac in the 1970's and early 80's.
Here was a man who used his legal talents to support his employer or the
Government in what was right and proper for each. Sometimes he found
himself behind the eight pal when he supported what was right and proper.
That did not change his commitment to the right for all. I loved that man
for the things he did for Univac and especially for a number of things that
he did for me that made me a winner instead of a loser.

I was told by friends he helped victims. I spoke with him and I was told I met him at St Cloud meetings. Thank you Dale.

I knew Dale as a man who may have been small in physical stature but he made up for it with his big heart, his amazing will and determination to help woman and children in their struggles for justice in the family court system and for his political activism to seek needed changes in the laws that affect so many families and our justice system. He will be greatly missed.

I assisted Dale w/ several law cases, while I was still living in MN. In addition, Dale & I served on the MNIP Executive Council; while I served as State Party Secretary, I relied on Dale's intricate knowledge of law, to especially help during Conventions. You will be sorely missed, my friend.
