Danya Dayson, a lawyer with wide experience in family and criminal law, was sworn in on Friday as the newest associate judge of D.C.’s Superior Court.
Dayson practiced law with O’Toole, Rothwell, Nassau & Steinbach where she represented clients in criminal and family law matters.

Danya also served on the Steering Committee for the Family Court Section of the District of Columbia Bar Association.
How Judge Dayson will treat defendants in marijuana cases remains to be seen. But her strong background in criminal law, and history of community engagement augers well for those who will have to appear before her. Stay tuned.
