     I am a California licensed attorney, active in my community.  I am an active member of the Rohnert Park Chamber of Commerce, Sonoma County Bar Association, Rohnert Park Cotati Rotary and Rotary International (a Paul Harris Fellow), Business Network International-Direct Connections, and many other associations.


     I believe that an attorney must not only represent her clients to the absolute best of her ability, but educate them, and help them understand the complexities of the legal system.  I have a vast network of businesses and individuals whom I can reach out to for assistance and information outside of the legal community. WIth more than 20 years experience in the legal field, I know I can help you.


     You want an attorney who answers your questions, doesn't charge an arm and leg, gets you the best possible outcome, tells you the truth, keeps you informed, and will hear and understand your unique situation.  I offer a free initial consultation.  Call today.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Experienced
Every aspect of my case Laura has in-debt experienced,. She has a vast amount of knowledge and knew exactly what course of action to take. There are no such thing as "legal road-blocks" or "curve balls" because Laura has the solutions. When you have someone as professional, thorough, organized and as well versed as she is on your side you know you have the best representation possible. Legal situations are frustrating, stressful and difficult to go through but if you have awesome representation your worries and concerns are non existence. Some of Laura/s best traits are: She was very Respectful towards me. and made me feel comfortable during the entire process. She is Trustworthy, fair and cost-conscious. She truly cares about her clients and THEIR outcome. She is experienced, knowledgeable and astute. She is attentative and reassuring. She plans ahead by devising and implementing long range strategy for your case success. She has contingency plans. She promptly returns calls and emails. Something you do NOT see often, She was highly recommended by several other attorneys! She is zealous in every aspect of her work. I have a huge about of consideration and respect for Laura and her legal expertise and abilities. I would HIGHLY recommend Laura for Family law and Personal injury Law matters.

Takes care of business
I was extremely stressed out and didn't know where to go because all other pleople would let my case drop or just not get back to me. Laura took care of business and made me at ease by being very clear on everything I was confused about.

Laura Dunst Review
Laura is great.. We are currently working with her on a litigation case. Her support and knowledge about the issues, county ordinances and case law we are dealing with have convinced us to move forward with the case to seek damages and restitution in line with what we believe are real. We are glad she is on our side of this dispute should this go to trial.

Review for Laura M Dunst
Ms. Dunst is a very knowledgeable and caring attorney. She goes the extra mile to research current case law to see where recent decisions will be advantageous to your case. She spends quality time with her clients discussing the case, reviewing the information, outlining the timeline, processes and potential risks/hurdles. I would recommend Ms. Dunst to others in the areas of family and employment law.
