“Man of integrity, honesty, and intellect”

I’ve had the honor and privilege of knowing Tom Dunbar for over 40 years as a friend, business associate and attorney.  I can say without any reservation that he is a man of integrity, honesty, and intellect.  Tom is a natural born leader. He has demonstrated his outstanding character and skills, not only through his profession, but in his community and through his family life.  I would trust him not only with a complex legal matter, but with my life. There are few persons on this earth to whom I would give such high praise. –Bill

Blow the Whistle on Healthcare Fraud

Whistleblowers Win

Extendicare Health Services, an operator of 146 skilled nursing facilities in 11 states, recently paid $38 million to settle a case alleging it failed to provide proper care in its nursing homes.  Two employees of Extendicare blew the whistle on their company’s practices which resulted in the lawsuit and subsequent settlement. 

The whistleblowers, acting under the United States False Claims Act, alleged that Extendicare improperly billed Medicare and Medicaid, provided substandard nursing care, and implemented medically unnecessary rehabilitation therapy.  More specifically, it was alleged that Extendicare billed Medicare and Medicaid for nursing services that did not meet state and federal standards.  Additionally, it was alleged that Extendicare facilities failed to provide an adequate number of nurses, did not give sufficient catheter care and failed to adequately prevent falls and pressure ulcers for its patient population.

“Someone you can trust”

I contacted Tom Dunbar about a car accident I was involved in.  Tom is a straight-shooter, no BS.  He listened to my situation and asked a lot of questions.  He then told me the truth about my case which wasn’t exactly what I wanted to hear.  But I respect him for that and I would use him again.  He’s a professional and someone you can trust.  –Ray

“No other attorney was right for this job”

Tom Dunbar was wonderful! He was so reliable & responsive through my difficult time.  I felt that no other attorney was right for this job. I dealt with doctors, medical bills, and overwhelming emotions. He answered questions that were very difficult for me to understand in a timely manner (even on weekends).  After my case was settled only a few months after hiring Tom, I was very pleased with everything & referred others to him immediately.  Thanks Tom Dunbar for everything!  –Bianka

“I would recommend him very highly”

After my gallbladder surgery, I quickly became very ill. I discovered that my surgeon had made a mistake by cutting the wrong duct. This was irreversible. I was shocked and in disbelief, not to mention very sick. After I got out of the hospital, I met with Tom Dunbar and hired him to represent me against the surgeon and the hospital. Tom was very methodical in his approach and I could tell he was very knowledgeable about these type of cases. Long story short, Tom was able to settle my case for a very substantial sum of money. It did not bring back my health but it did give me some satisfaction and paid for all my medical bills. I would not wish this on anyone, but if you do find yourself injured by medical malpractice, do yourself a favor and contact Tom Dunbar. I would recommend him very highly. –Dorothy

“Couldn’t be happier”

Tom Dunbar handled my case after I was seriously injured in a car accident.  After being released from the hospital, I tried to handle it myself.  I got nowhere with the insurance companies and contacted the Dunbar Law Office.  Tom quickly stepped in and started getting my medical bills paid.  He later settled my case for a substantial sum.  I was very impressed with his knowledge and his ability to get things done.  I couldn’t be happier with his services and the outcome. –Melissa
