Why Hire a Trial Lawyer
Although about 95% of cases can be resolved without a trial, your right to a jury trial can be a powerful tool in the hands of a real trial lawyer. Just think: The legal system requires that every essential fact must be proven "beyond a reasonable doubt." This is the same standard for any charge, ranging from DUI and minor drug possession offenses to murder. They must also thoroughly convince all twelve jurors, as verdicts must be unanimous.
The underlying fact is that jury trials pose a tough challenge for the prosecution. This opens up many avenues for lawyers who know how to skillfully defend their clients at trial. Many lawyers, however, rarely fight their cases at trial, and the prosecutors know that. As a result, far too many lawyers are willing to settle for unfair plea agreements or reduced sentences in cases that could have been successfully defended at trial.
Throughout his 15 years of legal practice, Mr. Dunn has fought more than 80 cases through jury trial and beyond, including successful appeals affirmed by the California Supreme Court. This hands on experience has allowed the firm to accumulate an extensive amount of knowledge in what works and what doesn't at trial. Mr. Dunn's solid reputation as a tough litigator who is willing to go to trial and fight aggressively and intelligently for his clients can also greatly benefit your case. Think of it from the prosecutor's perspective: Who has more negotiating credibility, a lawyer who rarely goes to trial, or a lawyer who is not of afraid of fighting for his clients in court?
