Travis Dunn Background
Travis Dunn is an experienced trial lawyer who has dedicated 100% of his practice to litigating medical malpractice and wrongful death cases for over 25 years.
Travis began his career in Oklahoma City, representing healthcare providers, successfully defending physicians, hospitals, and nursing homes in dozens of trials throughout the state. Travis later became the managing partner of the Oklahoma City office of a large multi-state law firm that specialized in defending medical providers.
Travis now uses his over two decades of hard-earned experience to represent individuals who have sustained catastrophic personal injuries or have lost a loved one due to the negligence of hospitals, doctors, or other medical personnel. Personal experience has instilled in him a passion for working tirelessly on behalf of families who have lost loved ones due to preventable medical mistakes, as well as patients who are catastrophically or permanently injured by medical malpractice and malfeasance.
Travis is the loving husband and proud father of a college football player and an elementary school songbird. Don’t ask about his kids unless you are prepared for a long conversation complete with photos and lots of bragging.
Travis attended college at Oklahoma State University. In 1992, he graduated from OSU with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and remains an avid Cowboy fan.
After graduating from college, Travis attended the University of Oklahoma College of Law. In 1995, he graduated from the OU College of Law, receiving a juris doctorate. During his time in law school, Travis became a reluctant OU fan and now says he roots for the Sooners in every game but one and always roots for the Cowboys.
