He has practiced mainly with law firms representing injured plaintiffs, but also practiced for a few years with insurance defense law firms. Mr. Dunn’s practice areas are mainly in the field of personal injury. Mr. Dunn has conducted numerous trials, mediations and arbitrations in a wide variety of cases. His personal injury experience includes automobile accidents, premises liability, construction casualty, product liability (products include defective pharmaceutical drugs, asbestos, automobiles and products used in manufacturing), insurance bad faith and medical malpractice. Mr. Dunn has also been a successful construction defect trial litigator for approximately three years at a prominent insurance defense law firm in the Denver area.

Mr. Dunn’s experience also includes over 20 successful appeals, representing both appellants and respondents. Some of these appeals have been published: Chen v. Superior Court, 54 Cal.

Johns-Manville Corp., 169 Cal.App.3d 1010 (1985) (Sole author of the appeal, and main responsibility, as a law clerk. This appeal resulted in hundreds of longshoremen in California, who were injured by asbestos, having had their cases reinstated on appeal after the cases were dismissed by the trial court).
