Made a bad situation better
Adam and Kayla worked hard to get a battery charge reduced working with the state attorneys office. I am going through a very hostile divorce and my soon to be ex taunted and pushed buttons as revenge for me filing for divorce. Adam and Kayla knew when I called needing a criminal attorney because I was arrested for battery that they could help me. After several phone calls Adam took this criminal case and I was confident he would handle everything while I had to deal with my divorce. Kayla became a friend and Adam helped ease my mind so I could concentrate on more important issues. I highly recommend Adan Dunn to be your criminal attorney. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Adam and Kayla Donna

Vincent R ( VOP Sarasota)
I can't say enough about how happy I was having Mr Dunn representing me in my Sarasota VOP. I was not able to complete all of my conditions in time and Sarasota violated me all the way from Cleveland Ohio ( After being stopped ) I found out a warrant was filed & was arrested and booked into Cuyahoga county Jail in Cleveland. Adam had represented me in the past so I immediately had my family reach out to him. 2 weeks later I was released after my court date with time to finish my terms. The state had offered me 11 months 29 days I have a family , a dog and a Job that would have been devastating and would have caused big problems. I knew that I was going to be in the best possible situation with his representation and that was the case.. Thanks Adamm

Mr. Dunn and his staff did an awesome and amazing job to help my family. My 16 year old son had an open case and got another new charge Mr. Dunn was able to bundle both cases and with their hard work my son was able to get out of jail after 5 months and felon free. Good works in mysterious ways and puts Angels in our path to help us.

2nd VOP on felony charge
I hired Attorney Dunn for an immediate family member facing his 2nd VOP on a felony case. Mr. Dunn worked with the State to have the probation re-instated, which is down from the State's original offer of 36 months of jail time. We were very pleased with Mr. Dunn's hard work on this case.

Debonair, effective Lawyer
Of many decisions in life, few are as important as marrying someone, buying a house and getting a lawyer worth his salt. And Adam Dunn fills the need. Not for marrying (well maybe) but this is an Everyman's lawyer. If you need to take it to Trial when the offer is horrible in Manatee County where they always are, and if he doesn't plea it down to the most Client friendly acceptance, he is not afraid to go to Trial for you and ask the brilliant questions trial lawyers do that set you free. BUT GUESS WHAT. HE WILL PROBABLY GET IT DISMISSED BEFORE THAT AND THEN SOME. Turn it around and get you on top. He did it for me and during a supposed bond hearing, dropped a bomb and came out fighting and asked instead for the dismissal. We got it. Bing bang boom. On both. The charge And subsequent FELONY VOP. That is the kind of double whammy he handled with style, acumen and applause from bystanders. And with the most suave and debonair almost charm everybody likes and galvanizes the sitting mean Judge. That is why you need him. He's good with the Judges and bloodsucking Prosecutors intent on destroying YOU. I would have been sunk, I believe, without him. Sent to prison on prank phone calls and gas mileage fraud I already did 9 months for and 15 years PROBATION still. 15 years! Had I had Adam Dunn last year, he would never have allowed that despicable Plea I was forced to take. That's what I am telling you if you are deciding, I NEEDED THIS LAWYER last year for that despicable Plea I was forced to take. Long story. My Judge is bad, immune from the weight of his wand with your life and addled. He would send you to Prison for a long time for prank phone calls. Fluff. Petty. He is deadly. Adam didn't let it happen. In a way, I owe him my life. I wish I had had him last year. But for you, his integrity of duty to the client far surpasses the norm and does not waver. He will not sell you down the river and boy does he know how to make the right call. That's it. He fought behind the scenes for me, plus he can litigate at trial. Many of them don't do both. He's the one for you and is real suave and debonair without unctuousness. Buy him today.

Outstanding law firm
Adam Dunn is a very impressive litigation attorney. I am quite pleased with his outstanding representation and the compassion which Mr. Dunn expressed during my court case. Mr. Dunno was able to mitigate my felony charges down to low misdemeanor charge. Adam Dunn is by far the most amazing law firm in Sarasota

OUTSTANDING LAWYER
I was recommended to Adam Dunn from my lawyer for moving traffic violations I have incurred this year. I called him. He returned my call shortly afterward. He clearly answered all my questions and said he would call me back after checking the records. He called me back the same day with answers that relieved the anxiety i had about this issue. He was everything i look for in a professional and have such a hard time finding: knowledgeable, efficient, personable, open, available, generous, and easy going. i will definitely contact him again and will also recommend him to my friends.

AMAZING ATTORNEY
Attorney Dunn is probably the best attorney I have hired. I hired him to represent my son. He was able to represent him simultaneously in Sarasota and Broward County. He is extremely professional while being personal at the same time. His work ethic is incredible. Always makes you feel like a priority and is available to answer questions all the time. Unlike the big law firms that make you feel like number, Adam makes you feel like family and like a priorty! Best attorney ever!!!!

One of a kind Attorney!
I recently hired Adam Dunns law firm to handle a case I had. I have never met a attorney with such Knowledge, Ambition, and Confidence as Adam Dunn and I have hired many attorneys ranging from misdemeanors to PBL charges, and never had such great results as I did with his law firm. From day one of hiring him he answered every single question I could think of with facts and kept in direct contact with me through out the whole case to the finish and even after the case was resolved. I currently recommend Adam Dunn to all my friends and family members looking to hire a attorney and will continue to. Great job Adam! your firm is truly amazing in every aspect!

My Security
Mr Dunn read all the material I brought him, and It was not fun reading. He was compassionate, friendly, efficient, and punctual. I hired Mr. Dunn to protect me in a criminal case, in which I was a victum. He came to all appearances, kept me updated on what was going on and answered all my questions, which were many. I am grateful he was recommended to me by a close friend. (who is a differnt kind of attorney)

Double Trouble with Probation
I hired this attorney for my son. My son has been going on the legal merry go round for several years: probation, jail, probation, jail. Adam was amazing! He stayed in touch with me the entire time and kept his promises. Sorry to say that I have never met an attorney that kept his word... In any case, using his in-depth knowledge of the legal system, Adam accomplished all of our goals. This was over a year ago and my son has been off of the legal merry-go-round ever since. Thank you Adam, job well done. We would use Adam again.
