Firm History

Speak With Our Alameda County Lawyers Today

The lawyers at Bonjour, Thorman, Burns & Dahm have an excellent reputation in Northern California, both in the criminal justice bar and among the insurance companies that handle personal injury claims. Our firm has been in existence since 1973. Many of our cases are referred to us by judges, other lawyers and our former clients. Our lawyers teach trial tactics at law schools in the Bay Area and are regularly invited to speak by professional organizations and public agencies.

Our lawyers received an AV Preeminent-rating* – the highest possible rating – through the Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating process. This is a significant rating accomplishment – a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of other attorneys and the judiciary.

Mr. Bonjour, Mr. Thorman, Ms. Burns and Ms. Dahm have all been designated as Northern California Super Lawyers. This designation is based on surveys of lawyers across Northern California who have been licensed to practice for five years or more. The surveys are conducted through the independent research of Law & Politics magazine. Only 5 percent of the lawyers in Northern California are named Super Lawyers. Megan Burns and Emily Dahm have also been certified by the State Bar of California as Criminal Law Specialists.
