I recommend Jonathan Dunn
I hired Jonathan 1-3 years ago.
Jonathan handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.
We sought an attorney for a construction/breach of contract action about three years ago. From the beginning, Mr. Dunn was thorough in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of moving a lawsuit forward, and he was straightforward in his discussions with us. From our knowledge of the industry and his informed communications, we chose to move forward. Mr. Dunn's understanding of this industry and its processes gave credibility and strength to this case each time we questioned whether this was the right decision for us to make. He and his team dissected the entire chain of events that occurred in this case and built strong, efficient defenses [thorough research, witness interviews, clear explanations of complex terminologies, clear and appropriate visual displays for the jury] -- absolutely evident in court as the case progressed forward. Mr. Dunn's ability to understand and react to the evidence presented by the defendants and to turn their case's 'strengths' into support for our case facts was phenomenal. Making a decision to file and pursue a lawsuit is stressful; in spite of this, Mr. Dunn's honesty and forthrightness allowed us to focus on the reasons why we moved forward, assess the possible outcomes, and make solid decisions involving the case, our commitment to pursuing what we felt were miscarriages of the law and, finally, what the outcomes could mean to our company and personal wealth -- important decisions when considering legal actions. We strongly recommend Mr. Dunn when legal action is needed; his commitment to his clients, the legal process, and to his work products have the reliability, thoroughness, knowledge, and trustworthiness necessary to be successful.
