I start my representation with a consultation.  I do charge for consultations.  The consultation fee is a flat fee of $300.00 and is for up to one hour of my time.  I encourage you to call and briefly tell me what the issues are so I can confirm it's something I can help you with.  If it is, you can set an appointment right then.  I normally can see you within 24 to 48 hours.  Please understand that I don't give legal advice over the phone until I've been retained.  Thank you for the opportunity to represent you.

Excellent Association
I've been most fortunate to have John’s counsel in several complex real estate matters. Our work together has produced very positive results, and when called for he’s been quite effective representing my interests before the court. I highly recommend his services.

John has reviewed several documents for me. His turnaround time has been fast and his comments and recommendations have been excellent. I recommend John to anyone looking to have contracts or other legal documents reviewed.

Excellent representation
Mr. Unell recently represented me in a Landlord / tenant, breach of contract matter. I was extremely satisfied with his representation, and he achieved all of my goals at mediation. I found him to be prepared, knowledgeable, responsive, and caring. I highly recommend him.

Best Lawyer in Dallas true!
I wanted to find a very good attorney for contract advise and well for on going representation for our company as both a residential and a commercial contractor. I did my research for the DFW area. I found that John Unell had been practicing real estate law since 1996, D magazine had listed him BEST LAWYER in DALLAS 2015, he was rated at Superb with 10.0 with AVVO. After the first meeting with Mr. Unell I knew why. Not only could he speak "legalese" but explained everything so that I could clearly understand and made perfect sense to me. He put me at ease to ask questions and I knew I had found the best representative for me and my company. I would recommend John Unell in a heartbeat to family, friends or anyone!
