What Our Clients Say

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.

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.
