Travis Dunn

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 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’ experience and bull dog tenacity makes him one of the best trial lawyers in the state.  His case preparation, ability to recognize the single point of failure, and his ability to transfer that information to the team, as well as to defense attorneys is just part of the reason that Travis is a successful litigator.  As a member of the medical malpractice team, his track record includes recovery of numerous 6 figure cases, over 15 seven figure cases, in addition to a respectable number of 8 figure cases, totalling over $80 million dollars in recovery for our clients.

Travis also uses his vast experience and proven knowledge to assist on the firm’s birth injury cases resulting in the recovery of over $40 million dollars.  As you will see in his representative recoveries, which is not an exhaustive list at all, Travis has also been very successful in other practice areas too.  

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

Education

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.
