Practice Areas

The Law Offices of Jonathan Dunten provide legal counsel and representation in both immigration and criminal proceedings. We represent individuals and families seeking lawful permanent residence or citizenship. We also defend individuals charged with misdemeanor or felony offenses in California State Courts or Federal charges within the Northern District of California.

We can counsel you in all matters related to visa requirements before United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), defend you from deportation/removal before the Executive Office For Immigration Review (EOIR), appeal your case before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and petition for review of your case by the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. You will appreciate our responsive and result-oriented representation. We ensure that you are continually informed and involved in each and every step of your case.

Legal proceedings are a serious matter and at times can be frightening or frustrating. That is why we work hard not only to obtain favorable results, but also to alleviate any anxiety you may have along the way. Often clients call on us whenever life gets complicated, even if the problem does not directly concern their case. If we cannot help with your new problem we can provide you with referrals of other professionals.

All of our attorneys are bilingual in English and Spanish. We have years of experience handling routine cases that take 6 months to complete as well as complex cases that can take up to 5 years. Our diverse client base extends from farmers to business entrepreneurs to minor children, and includes services for mentally incompetent individuals. Without a doubt, the vast majority of our clients learned about us through a referral from family, friends, or other lawyers. We are very proud of the reputation for honesty and diligence we have created for ourselves both within the court system as well as in own community.
