Unified Lawyers went above and beyond in helping me secure a property purchase in this tough Sydney market. I am so grateful that they were willing to review the contract and strata documents on a... Saturday. Thanks to their quick but diligent turn-around, I was able to have the advantage of making an offer first on the property that I wanted. Even on Sunday afternoon, they answered my phone call when I had a few questions. Between the offer and settlement, the whole team at Unified Lawyers were professional, timely and friendly. Everyone was very easy to deal with and open to responding to my questions. I'd highly recommend working with them.read more

Highly recommend Unified Lawyers and a special mention to the lawyer who assisted me with my case - Donna Nguyen. She was thoroughly professional since the day I contacted her, always on top of... asking for information, filing the case on time and ensuring communication was top notch every step of the way. Most importantly very upfront around fees structure and was very informative around any hidden fees throughout the process. If every lawyer was like her, there wouldn't ever be a single person left in doubt around laws and court procedures. She's an absolute rockstar!read more

I recommend Unified Lawyers for any Family or Domestic violence or issues; I have received excellent consultation when I called them first time in regards to an issue related to my neighbour. They... first listen to issue and explained what would be potential ways to deal with the issue from lawful perspective and also send an follow up email to confirmed what was discussed. I was very worried with the particular issue but after talking to them I sensed hope and clear understanding what to do next. I give them a five star.read more

I contacted Unified Lawyers after having a very negative experience with another firm. My initial phone consultation was with Antoinette who was ever so attentive and helpful. She took the time to... listen to my concerns and was very quick to follow up with any questions I had. My experience with Unified Lawyers was extremely positive and it is clear by the way I was treated that they have true professionals working in their firm. It's 5 Stars from me.read more

Hugh Dang and the team at Unified Lawyers guided us through the purchase of a unit in Feb-Mar 2021. They were great! They are knowledgeable and negotiated through a heavily adapted contract from... the vendor to our benefit. There were a number of complications as well and having Hugh's advice at our fingertips was a real plus. Hugh was also readily approachable and accessible whenever needed. Highly recommended.read more
