    • I recommend James Dunn.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    This guy never gives up. If there’s anything that can be done to win your case, he will try it. I had a tough case: blood test well over the limit, a very experienced, aggressive arresting officer, and a prosecutor who didn’t want to give an inch. It took a long time, and after a while, I just wanted to get it over with and plead to the DUI. But Mr. Dunn encouraged me to let him keep fighting.

    There were multiple motion hearings on technicalities, and I think he even did a pre-trial appeal. I also appreciated that I never had to take off of work, and only had to go to court once at the very end. He was able to do all of the court dates without me. It took almost a year, but in the end, he got my charges reduced to playing my stereo too loud, and I was found “not guilty” of being over the limit.

    Using the “not guilty”, Mr. Dunn got the DMV to wipe the DUI off of my record completely. This was critical to me because I work in the car business, and I'm on company insurance.

    I also want to say that we agreed on a flat fee at the beginning, and he did not charge me any extra, even though my case probably took a lot more time in court than usual. If your case is important enough to hire a lawyer, get Mr. Dunn.

    • I do not recommend James Dunn.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    It is nearly impossible to get a hold of this attorney, especially in times of desperate required information. This lack of timely responsiveness makes learning information about your case or the progress of which very difficult.

    Given, he is a very intelligent man; capable of much.

    However, I personally did not feel at ease or comfortable with this lawyer or how he handled my case and that is one of the most vital points. I highly advise those who seek a client-appropriate and secure attorney to think twice.

    • I recommend James Dunn.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    A nearly impossible circumstantial Dui situation, but Jim didn't hesitate to continue driving the case to dismissal thru investigation and presentation of our side of the story. It took a while and was a bit frustrating at times, but worth every bit of the wait as he gathered and presented facts instead of assumptions that lead to the ultimate dismissal. Thanks Jim for patching the canoe and tossing us some much needed paddles!

    • I recommend James Dunn.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I'm being charged with a misdemeanor for petty theft. Within minutes of speaking to the online chat representative Mr. Dunn called and gave me a phone appointment for a few hours later. He then followed up (all of this between other cases/clients) and spent 20 minutes or so on the phone going over my case with me, and I now have an appointment scheduled only 2 days from today. He was very friendly, helpful, sincere, and knowledgable, and (most importantly in my opinion) he was respectful, and didn't make any assumptions about my character or about the case itself. I've never been in any legal trouble before, and had no idea how important that would be. Overall, I'm very impressed so far.

    • I recommend James Dunn.
    • James handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I had been kicking back with friends and drinking beer all afternoon. On my way home, I ended up getting into an accident. Nobody was hurt, but the driver of the other car called the cops. I was freaking out. My license was suspended at the time. My breath test was .21, and even Mr. Dunn told me my chances were slim to none. But at that point in my life, a conviction would have destroyed me. So I put my faith in Mr. Dunn and told him to take the case to trial. He was awesome. Not Guilty on all counts! He also won back my License.
