He has served as the lead attorney on several influential cases including the recent representation of Florida Supreme Court justices concerning merit retention ballot issues. In addition he has served as counsel in an administrative law bid protest concerning a $40 million school construction project and has represented lenders in several multimillion-dollar foreclosure lawsuits.

A member of the Palm Beach County Bar Association and The Florida Bar, Dunkel has sat on the board of directors and held various other leadership roles in many professional and community-based organizations. He serves as chairman of the Palm Beach Alumni Admissions Committee for Duke University and previously served on the board of directors of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.

Dunkel earned his J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law in 1982 and his B.S. in management science from Duke University in 1979.
