Attorney Thomas Dunbar

You Deserve an Experienced Litigation Attorney on Your Side

  • An Attorney You Can Trust
  • An Attorney Who Will Fight For You
  • An Attorney Who Gets Results


I'm Thomas Dunbar, an attorney specializing in civil litigation and personal injury law. Civil litigation includes contract claims, auto/boating/trucking accidents, as well as injuries from surgical errors and medical malpractice, dangerous conditions around structures and defective, dangerous or malfunctioning products.

When Experience Counts

With over 30 years of extensive experience (10 years for an insurance defense firm and 20 years as a solo practitioner),  I have helped many people recover damages after being injured.  Contrary to the insurers' public relations efforts, clients are never "whole" after being injured but seek to hold the defendants responsible and pay a portion of the damages caused by their inattention, lack of focus and over-confidence.  I have never represented a client who would trade his or her health for a potential recovery in a lawsuit.  The injured always ends up "less than whole" in any personal injury lawsuit.

A Reputation for Legal Excellence

I have practiced with a large, prestigious law firm specializing in medical malpractice and insurance claims defense. I started the Dunbar Law Office, P.C. in 1996, which specializes in medical malpractice and personal injury law. I have successfully recovered substantial sums for my clients through a professional, aggressive pursuit of their claims. However, the money recovered has never made up for the lost health, peace of mind, and physical trials that have occurred due to the inattention, mistake, or over-confidence of a Defendant or surgeon.
