The road to the courtroom is never straight. Let us guide you through it.
My name is Mike Dunham and I’ve been a lawyer for a long time. I became a lawyer because I like helping people. I started Dunham Legal because I like helping people. Every business should have a web page to help itself, but I want this web page to help everybody else.
- If you want to learn about who we are, you can meet us here.
- If you want to learn why we do what we do, you can read more about our philosophy.
- If you want to learn more about our pricing, you can read about that here, including certain cases we take on a flat-fee basis.
- If you need directions or to reach out to us, check out our contact page.
- If you’re here because you want to learn how YOU can help people, please visit our “DLG Cares” page.
The rest of this page is all about resources that can hopefully help you. Obviously, if you’re not a client, nothing I have to say should be taken as legal advice; and if you are a client, your legal advice should come from me directly, not my web site. Still, I hope this information can help you in some way, and if you have questions, please drop us a line any time. Thank you!
