Board Certified Residential Real Estate Attorney
John Unell has been a Board Certified Residential Real Estate Attorney, by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, since 1996. His practice is almost exclusively limited to the practice of Real Estate Law – representing buyers and purchasers, sellers, landlords, tenants, individuals, entities, heirs, contractors, builders, lenders and others with both their transactional and litigation matters as they pertain to Residential Real Property and Residential Real Estate laws in Texas.
Whether it’s the purchase or sale of your home, entering into a lease, disputing a lien on your property, dealing with a homeowners association or any other matter involving real estate, John Unell has the experience and expertise to provide you with the counsel you deserve. All your dealings will be directly with the attorney – no need to worry about being passed off to a junior lawyer or a paralegal. Having an attorney on your side will give you the peace of mind you need to make sure you’re both complying with Texas law and not being taken advantage of by the opposing party in your transaction or dispute.
The largest purchase in most people’s lives is their home. But their experience in this type of transaction, and the associated paperwork, is so infrequent that they don’t necessarily know the best way to protect their interests. That’s where a Board Certified Residential Real Estate Law attorney can help guard you against the unexpected. And the same holds true for all those other real estate matters that may be outside your comfort zone and experience.

According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Board Certification is both a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment. Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law.
According to the 2024 Texas Board of Legal Specialization website, out of 110,000 lawyers that are licensed to practice in Texas, only 6,850 are Board Certified. Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of law.
Moreover, Board Certification is not a one-time event. It requires an ongoing involvement in the specialty area which is periodically substantiated with references from peers in that field. It also requires annual professional refreshment through Texas Board of Legal Specialization approved, continuing legal education course work to stay abreast of current trends in law.
