About Mackenzie

Learn Mackenzie’s areas of practice.

MacKenzie is an experienced litigator who believes that everyone should have access to affordable legal help during the most important moments of their lives. MacKenzie is passionate about helping counsel clients through some of the toughest times they will ever face. Before moving up to Washington MacKenzie managed a legal aid provider in Houston, working for clients who were in the middle, who work hard everyday but could easily be crippled financially by a legal setback.


MacKenzie has strived to be at the top of his field. He was recently recognized for his work in Family Law by Houstonian Magazine as a Top Lawyer in 2019,2020 and 2021 and Thompson Reuters in 2020, 2021, and 2022 as a Rising Star.


MacKenzie went to law school at the University of Houston Law Center where he focused on litigation through the Blakely Advocacy Institution. MacKenzie was an active part of UHLC's Mock Trial team, Moot Court team, and the Advocates. In the Spring of 2017 MacKenzie was one of four students who were chosen to help train the United States Court Guards investigators through trial demonstrations. MacKenzie was recognized for his achievements in trial advocacy by the Houston Bar Association Litigation Section in April 2017. For his effective use of storytelling and trial strategy, MacKenzie was awarded the 2017 Jim Perdue Sr. Trial Advocacy Award.

An initial review of my lease answered all my questions in one go
Mackenzie is a great friend of mine, and I hired him for an initial consult to review my lease and what options were available to me. This consult was so thorough and helpful that we concluded no further action was required from him. I don't often seek legal counsel, but when I do, Mackenzie is the first person I go to because of his ability to explain everything in a no-nonsense way. His grasp of the law and what to expect is phenomenal. It also helps that he is an all around good person who quickly understands where you are coming from as well as all the circumstances involved, and that makes him a very easy person to talk to. I highly recommend reaching out Mackenzie to see how he can help.

Efficient and kind
My husband and I received a wrongful notice to vacate and employed MacKenzie and his associate Doug. They were very clear in explaining our rights and steps to be taken as well as possible outcomes. Aside from their knowledge MacKenzie made sure we were capable of affording his services without putting strain on our budget. Throughout the process we were kept informed and up to date with all actions. MacKenzie even went out of his way to drop off our unused retainer at our home after the matter was resolved. We would recommend him to anyone facing issues with a landlord or other situations. He is not only extremely capable and effective but also kind and fair.

| Consulted Attorney
Needed Landlord/Tenant help....
Mr.Dunham went above my expectations of what help I would get by email....several other Lawyers simple gave a yes or no reply,but Mr.Dunham took the time and effort to reply AND explain what to expect and what to do. He never once demanded payment of a fee to consult with and get answers to questions that were important to me...and I consulted with him several times..not just once. A really decent,helpful Attorney.
