Worked wonders!
I have hired Mr. Dunn Many times, even when I thought things could not get worse. He done all he could and also scolded me like I was his son! The out come of my cases could have been much worse!

Most Knowledgeable Attorney in Bay City!
Mr. Dunn has assisted me and my family since 2011 and has been wonderful! So many lawyers think they know the law because they went to law one point. He really does, and it's current law! He teaches Law classes at Delta College so he has to stay up to date with the law. He is working on an appeal to the Supreme Court for us right now and I am confident that he will do the best job possible! He may have a strong and assertive personality but isn't that exactly what you want when someone is fighting for you? I know I do!

Excellent Attorney, Great man!
Mr. Dunn has worked with me on several issues over the past four years. He is a man of great compassion, integrity, and EXCEPTIONAL knowledge of the law! Even if you don't understand the law or procedure, rest assured He does! He has always responded to my calls quickly, usually the same day. If I drop by his office he knows me by name and takes the time to give me a quick update, no matter how busy he is. He knows the status and details of my case. He has gone above and beyond what is expected of a lawyer. His fees are reasonable and worth every penny. He's the only attorney in Bay City I'll ever use!

Excellent Lawyer
Wonder why they didn't let me make my opinion, because Roberd Dunn is a great lawyer who is concerned about his clients and was able to answer any concerns I had.
