Attorney Christopher Dunn is truly a modern Renaissance man. In a time when our youth is encouraged to set dreams aside and think practically, and schooling is considered merely a means to an end, Mr. Dunn’s journey to Randall Page, P.C. is inspiring.
From an eclectic educational background and a lifetime following his passions, Mr. Dunn is now proud to advocate on behalf of the residents of Chesapeake and the surrounding areas of Suffolk, Courtland, Emporia, and Lawrenceville.
Attorney Christopher Dunn is a Chesapeake native with strong ties to the community. His path to becoming a lawyer at one of the most respected personal injury and criminal defense firms in Virginia is worthy of note. As Mr. Dunn likes to say, he “took the scenic route.”
While first love was music, Mr. Dunn soon found inspiration for the law in the 1978 drama, The Paper Chase. As Mr. Dunn explains, “I had two main areas of interest that I loved at the time: music and law.” He began attending classes as a government major with intentions to go to law school. However, he found himself surprised by the amount of writing involved. TV shows often portray attorneys in pristine suits litigating on the courtroom floor. In reality, most duties involve writing.
After realizing becoming a lawyer wasn’t what he had envisioned, a chance encounter with an economics professor would lead to a new passion. Mr. Dunn switched majors and earned an economics degree from William & Mary. Then, an old love from high school would change his course once again. Finding his musical passion had never left, Mr. Dunn set his sights on East Carolina University to study music. With his second bachelor’s degree in hand, Mr. Dunn spent his career as a band director fulfilling his musical dream.
After retiring from the Chesapeake school system, Mr. Dunn decided to pursue a second career in law.
According to Christopher Dunn, “A lawyer can be a shield or a sword. I like being the shield.” After graduating from law school with honors, Attorney Dunn set out to make a difference in people’s lives. He began his law career at the Virginia Beach Public Defender’s Office, advocating for the best interests of his clients.

The office handled an out-of-state traffic issue in Emporia VA, very satisfied with the results at a reasonable cost. The staff was pleasant as well as professional and kept us informed through the process. Highly recommend going with a local attorney (across the street from the courthouse)
