Specializing in Appeals.
Rick commonly works with cases in criminal appeals, and will use his extensive experience to help you obtain a better outcome in your case. Sometimes this means overturning the conviction completely; other times, it results in a lesser sentence. Criminal appeals are typically based on a mistake made during the case, such as improper admission or exclusion of evidence, faulty directions to the jury, juror misconduct, sentencing errors, or other inappropriate acts.
In addition to handling criminal appeals, Rick Dunbar practices civil appellate law. If you are unsatisfied with the outcome of a civil case and believe the court made a mistake during the process, he is able to file for an appeal and work to obtain a more just outcome.
