About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Business
    James will take the time to learn about you and your business (trades, retailers, technology, licensed professional, hospitality industry, not-for-profit, etc.) enabling him to provide advice on day-to-day legal and business matters.

  2. Contracts and agreements
    Contracts need a legal eye for not only review of what is included in the document, but, more importantly, what is missing, to avoid future disputes and avoidable problems that would otherwise arise.

  3. Employment and labor
    Representing ownership and management exclusively, in union and non-union settings, James provides counsel for small and medium businesses, startups, entrepreneurs and not-for-profit corporations across various industries for all employment matters.

  4. Real estate
    James will help mitigate potential risks and ensure that your real estate deal closes, especially if unforeseen circumstances arise, for a home, co-op, condominium or commercial property.

  5. Trademark application
    Protect your business name and concept from others capitalizing off of your creation and business success.

  6. Trusts
    Trusts are thought of as a vehicle for wealthy individuals. However, Trusts have a place in the estate and legacy planning for individuals of more modest means too.

  7. Wills and living wills
    James will draft a clear and legally sound Last Will & Testament that includes considerations for your savings, investments, property, business entities, assets, child guardianship, executor responsibilities and more.

James Henry Dunne, Esq.'s philosophy is to earn client trust by exceeding expectation and to dedicate himself to providing practical, informative and attentive legal counsel at a reasonable fee.

James possesses the knowledge of the intricacies of business matters across all industries (including but not limited to: Licensed professionals, franchise operators, trade industries, Main Street business retailers, and the hospitality industry), estate planning at all stages of one's life, and the complexities of real estate (home closings, leases and commercial transactions) to ensure efficient and comprehensive representation. James believes that a "client first" approach ensures client comfort with their representation and their satisfaction with the legal counsel provided.

Trained by the NYS Bar Association in Alternative Dispute Resolution, and serving on the Suffolk County Supreme Court’s Roster of Commercial Division Mediators, James prides himself on bringing parties in dispute to a low-cost, time-efficient and just solution. James is available to serve as an impartial and objective "Neutral" between parties to avoid public exposure and the stress of a courtroom, whether through the Arbitration (binding) or Mediation (non-binding) processes.

In addition, with over two decades as an educator, trainer and professor of Management, Entrepreneurship, Ethics and Business Law, James has an innate ability to explain complex matters in a way that dilutes complicated issues into easy-to-understand information whereby clients can thoughtfully ponder his counsel and make their own well-informed decisions.
