    Located in the East Bay, Hayward has a population of 144,186 which makes it the sixth largest city in the San Francisco Bay area. The total area of Hayward is 63 square miles. Hayward’s nickname is the “Heart of the Bay” because it is centrally and conveniently located to Alameda County, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose and the valley communities surrounding Pleasanton. Hayward was ranked the 37th most populous municipality in California.

    It is the home of several schools, such as California State University, East Bay, and also possesses several beautiful parks (such as the Don Castro Regional Recreation Area, Dry Creek Pioneer Regional Park, the Hayward Regional Shoreline and Garin Regional Park) and historic landmarks such as the Green Shutter Hotel, Eden Congregational Church and Meek Mansion. While Hayward is a beautiful, thriving city, even in this lovely region, individuals grapple with criminal charges daily.

    After being accused of a crime, the worst thing you can do is suffer under this burden alone. This time is frightening, overwhelming and confusing which is why you need a legal expert on your side counseling you and guiding you through the process!


    Sometimes when an individual is arrested, his/her constitutional rights are violated in the process. If you were arrested and treated unfairly because of your race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation or disability, we will fight to uphold your civil rights and will do everything we can to expose the police brutality that took place, in court.

    If you are facing theft charges keep in mind that even petty theft charges can land you into a lot of trouble. Petty theft is punishable by up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. If you are convicted of more serious theft charges such as grand theft, fraud or receiving stolen property, you could face even harsher penalties.

    If you have been charged with a sex offense call the Law Office of James Dunn immediately! These charges are extremely dangerous to your future and you don’t have a moment to lose. Hiring an aggressive criminal defense attorney on your side today could prevent you from being registered for life as a sex offender.

    If you have been charged with a drug crime you should know that the Law Office of James Dunn has experience defending clients facing a wide range of charges including possession, manufacturing, sales/distribution, cultivation and trafficking.

    If you are facing domestic violence charges, such as assault & battery you should contact Attorney Dunn as soon as possible. Taking domestic violence charges lightly can result in you losing access to your children and home and eventually being sent to jail.

    Finally, if you were caught intoxicated behind the wheel you need a criminal defender to represent you and fight for your rights in and out of the courtroom. Don’t settle for going to jail, losing your license, paying hefty fines and accepting a conviction on your criminal record without fighting for your innocence first!
