Far above the average
When legal issues arise for us ordinary humanoids they always make us cringe. Some of that is of course the fact that any good attorney always costs a lot, or so I thought. The other reason to cringe is that none of us likes to be treated like ignorant low lives which is the way every other attorney has treated me. When I met Mr. Dunaway the first thing he did was treat me like we all want to be treated. That is with professional wisdom and respect. This man talks to his clients respectfully and treats us with compassion. His legal skills are impecable. I would think that the vast majority of smart but often rude could learn a lot from Mr. Dunaway. I can only hope that this attitude he has toward his clients and hopefully this review will treat him well. I know that this is the best attorney I have ever worked with. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Dunaway to anyone with a need for an attorney and doesn't want to be verbally abused.

Bankruptcy
Clint was great to work with. The time leading up to bankruptcy had been the most stressful of my life. Clint helped keep me calm and grounded. He told me exactly what I needed to do and guided me through the process. I am so thankful for him.

Family As Tenants
I had an issue where I let a family member move in to my rental home. You would think that family wouldn’t put you in a situation where you would have to have then evicted from their home. Marisela and Clint really helped me out. As the situation was very emotional for me, that they took care of everything and simply provided me with updates. I would recommend this attorney to anyone. I really apperciate the compassion Marisela and Clint showed towards my issue. They are worth every penny! Thanks again guys!

Listens. Learns all the facts. Explains options and consequences.
We were victims of a Sting by “con artists” and were confused concerning our best response. We asked the Arizona Association of Manufactured Homes, RV and Park Model Owners (AAMHO) to recommend a good Lawyer. They suggested we contact Clint Dunaway. He read our report, listened to our wants, needs, feelings and expectations, learned and checked all the facts. He then gave us insightful and informative council explaining our options and the likely consequences of each. Thanks to his professional assistance, we are confidently implementing our action plan.

Landlord/Tenant attorney
Clint was thorough. He listened well to my concerns and followed to the letter the expression of my concerns. He was prompt in all his responses and had a sense of humor. I was very pleased. I paid for his service so I believe he was hired but contact was by phone and email - not face to face - which was fine. The communication we had met my legal needs very well. Regards, Mary

Mr. Dunaway helped me remove Tenants from the dark bowels of Hell
I had tenants who wouldn't pay and refused to leave. They gave me notice then broke back into the house and squatted. Mr. Dunaway and his staff were kind and patient and optimistic. I needed that hope as I thought my situation was hopeless. Those horrible people, used my backyard as a port a potty and started burning things up. Mr. Dunaway was able to provide the notices to the tenants and negotiations with their attorney. He always answered my emails. It was a pleasure working with him and his staff; especially Marisela. I highly recommend him.

Great group to work with !!!!
We had a tenant that just wouldn't move or respond to communications. We found he changed all locks too. This office was quick to reply to all emails and give advice as they could. Very professional and thorough!! Good group to go through. We would definately use them again but pray we never have to,lol. !!!!

Great Eviction Service!
I am a Property Management Professional who has been using Clint's services for problem tenant trouble-shooting and actual evictions for about three years. I have found his advice to be sound and practical knowledge of the process very helpful. I would suggest him to anyone in my profession who wants a more personal approach to the eviction process that the "big box" firms.

Just what I needed
My wife and I have a rental home in Mesa. Our tenant stopped paying the rent and we were compelled to evict. Marisela Cuevas was our Legal Assistant. She was miraculous. She was always available for phone calls and responded to emails in a timely manner. Well worth the cost because I live in California making it impossible for me to go to court. The attorney appeared for me and gained a judgment on the evicted tenant. Now we have the home back and are preparing it to rent again. Thank you.

Problem with a home purchase, seller did not disclose a lawsuit.
We had a problem purchasing a home. After spending money on a home inspection, appraisal, and other funds related to purchasing a home. We found out through a title search that we could not get clear title. We were not talking about a great deal of money but the sellers would not reimburse. After many phone calls to quite a few lawyers I found this man that was a pleasure to deal with, cares about his clients, also knows the laws that were broken. Mr. Clint Dunaway Esq. was helpful and was able to settle this case before we went to a jury trial. I am pleased. Highly Recommended!

Professional and personable
I needed help getting my former boyfriend off the title to the home I currently live in that we had purchased together in 2015. After calling several lawyers and getting several different answers or no answers at all about my case, I finally reached out to my community and asked for lawyer referrals. One of my neighbors gave me Clint Dunaway's information and highly recommended him. The moment I spoke with Clint I knew I'd be hiring him. He was very easy to talk to and took the time to explain my options to get my ex boyfriend to sign a quit claim deed. It wasn't an easy thing to do since my "X" has refused to sign it for the last 14 months. Clint was prepared to take it to court if we needed to but after sending him a detailed letter explaining the options my "X" was finally convinced it would be much better to sign over the deed than to fight another year in court. Clint actually cared about the outcome and cared about my well being which I didn't see from other lawyers. I highly recommend Clint Dunaway and will recommend him to anyone that needs a Real state attorney.

Eviction Case
I hired Mr. Dunaway to handle an eviction. He took care of all the paperwork and argued the case in Justice Court. He arranged for the Constable to take position of the house when it was not vacated. The case was handled professionally, successfully and as quickly as the law allows,

GREAT Real Estate Attorney
I contacted Dunaway Law Firm to assist me with a judgment that was going no where. The court had awarded me the judgment, but the defendant wasn't paying. They processed the wage garnishment for me. Dunaway Law took my case and processed it in a timely manner with great results. The entire process took less than 90 days. I highly recommend them and I would definitely use them again. Clint and Courtney were great to work with and are both wonderful people.

Eviction Nightmare
After thinking that I could get the tenants out on my own and losing, I did a google search and found Clint Dunaway.. I was really happy with the information that Courtney had provided and not long after that Clint called me and he went to work hard on this.. Courtney always kept in contact to answer questions and to send me copies of what they had done making me feel better.. Last Friday when we appeared in court the Judge kept arguing for their case and Clint stood his ground with the knowledge he has.. The end is near I can see it and without Clint it wouldnt have happened... I am forever grateful!! Clint you and Courtney are tops and I would recommend Clint Dunaway with the highest regards!!!

Truly been a pleasure
I must say working with Dunaway Law Group, PLC has truly been a pleasure and believe me I don't say that too often. I personally had never needed to evict a tenant, until recently. I didn't know where to go or where to start. So, I goggled and I found "KickEmOutQuick" which linked me to :Dunaway Law Group, PLC. I called and spoke with Courtney McAferty, who was very pleasant, helpful and patient with me. She provided me with legal information regarding the process of eviction, she was always available for any questions I had. She kept me informed of each step I needed to take. She didn't make me feel ignorant, even though I kinda was. More importantly, I found D.L.G. PLC, to be affordable, easy to work with, responsive, and worth every penny. They expedited every step in the utmost efficient manner. Best of all within aprox 10 business days Dunaway Law Group, PLC had my non-paying tenants removed from my property. Based on my experience up to now, I would definitely refer D.L.G, PLC to anyone needing any assistance in evictions, and I would call them again if I needed to. note: Originally I had contacted a different Law group that proved to be unprofessional, and their contact person was very rude, not helpful, offensive, inpatient with me, and lacked efficiency. They basically didn't want to be bothered with a small case like mine, even though they advertised; to specialize in all types of evictions. In the meantime they strung me along for 30 days, and never even got to the first step of eviction process. I wish I could disclose the name of this firm, but I don't think it would be a good idea. But I'm glad I didn't pursue doing business with that firm, because I wouldn't have found Dunaway Law Group, PLC. I hope sharing my experience can help someone out there, that may find themselves in need of legal support, with their rental properties, like I did.

Swift, Professional, Client Focused
Had a very positive experience while reluctantly undertaking an unpleasant task - tenant eviction. Questions were answered fully, promptly and at no additional expense, and the eviction was handled timely and correctly. We highly recommend and will engage them again if the need arises. Well done and thanks!
