    • I do not recommend Joseph Lovretovich.
    • I hired Joseph 1-6 months ago.
    • Joseph handled my Workers Compensation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I waited almost 3 months for Mr. Lovretovich to send me to an Orthopedic Surgeon for my back surgery. He never did. He claimed "it's hard finding a doctor to take a worker's compensation patient". I would send Mr. Lovretovich an e-mail(his preferred way of contacting him) of crucial questions I needed answered for my case. It would take him over 1 week to return my e-mails. If I called him he would tell me "let me get back to you later today". I wouldn't hear back from him for another week! He never mentioned a worker's compensation attorney down in Orange County (who I would never meet)would be handling my claim. The Orange County office was referring me out to a Chiropractor and physical therapy appointments for a back so severely injured I needed back surgery(per a very reputable Orthopedic at Kaiser)! Thank God I had enough medical knowledge and common sense not to go to a Chiropractor visit. A chiropractor could have done serious injury to my back that has bone on bone discs, and ruptured discs into nerves! Mr. Lovreetovich sent me to an MRI facility. Not once but twice they were running 2 to 2 1/2 hours behind. I could not wait as I had a dentist appointment for a broken crown. Mr. Lovretovich sent me a disrespectful, very mean e-mail claiming I should have canceled my dentist appointment(with broken crown) and waited the 2 1/2 hours for my MRI. He said they were "jumping through hoops" to service me, which couldn't be farther from the truth! I sent him an e-mail saying I would not jeopardize my health because of an MRI facility not capable of properly booking patients. I also told him I surely did not see his firm "jumping through hoops" and his law office was giving me "mediocre service at best". Mr. Lovretovich sent me an e-mail telling me to get another attorney. I noticed on other review sites he has done this to other clients before. His unprofessionalism is unacceptable. I lost 3 months of salary waiting for him to get anything done on my case.

    • I recommend Joseph Lovretovich.
    • I hired Joseph more than 3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Joe is the best. He stuck with us through 3 years of legal jarnegan. His staff is warm and friendly especially his investigator. A knowledgeable attorney with abilities that exceed and surpass the average attorney. Would use again and again if ever needed. A fair man with integrity.

    Joseph Lovretovich and his team were great. They really helped me alot

    • I recommend Joseph Lovretovich.
    • I hired Joseph more than 3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    This is an update review to my previous one. I didn't see a way to update my previous review, so I thought I would write another one.

    So after leaving my previous review on Avvo, I was immediately contacted by one of the attorneys working on my case, via email. He acknowledged my frustration and my complaints and apologized for the lack of communication from their law office.

    We scheduled an appointment to meet at their Woodland Hills office, which is approximately a 60 mile drive for me, one way, to go over my case and meet in person. Unfortunately they were not able to meet me at their Orange County office, where I originally met with them.

    The day of the meeting in Woodland Hills, I met with the attorney that contacted me, and he was very courtesy and apologetic for the lack of communication. He re-assured me moving forward they will keep me informed about my case and will make sure that whatever the reason for the lack of communication, they will work to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    We spent some quality time going over my case and making sure all of my questions were answered. He was very professional and took his time. I didn't feel rushed at all.

    After we were done, he brought in another senior attorney, that is part of the team working on my case, for introduction. He was very cordial and also apologetic for the lack of communication. He provided me with direct contact information and encouraged me to contact him directly if I should need too.

    I am overall pleased with the way they acknowledged my frustration and realized their lack of communication. This helps rebuild the client and business relationship.

    I will post another review update as my case comes to an end.

  5. Spotty to No communication regarding case. They leave you in the dark.

    • I do not recommend Joseph Lovretovich.
    • I hired Joseph 6-12 months ago.
    • Joseph handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    Based on my personal experience, this Law office has horrible customer service. They took my case over six months ago and I am still in the dark about my case. They sent me a couple of emails and that's it. I have left numerous messages and sent emails requesting updates on my case. I have yet to get a response.

    Perhaps I may be an isolated event, however, I would never recommend JML Law to any of my friends or family. I wouldn't recommend them to you either.

    The only reason I contacted them in the first place was because of the reviews that were left here from reviewers. Well, I'm not sure what the hell happened with my case, but, I wouldn't take a chance with them. It may cost you a lot of Money!

    • I recommend Joseph Lovretovich.

    I had the good pleasure of meeting with Mr. Lovretovich. He is a true gentleman, he greeted me promptly at our appointed time. I had numerous questions pertaining to labor law. He succinctly provided me with the information I required in order to assist me in making sound decisions. What I found most refreshing is that the direction he steered me was is what is in my best interest and not necessarily the most lucrative for him. I will gladly navigate the Los Angeles traffic to seek his counsel in the future. He is well worth the drive.

    Could no be up front and say they are not interested in case. But left me waiting for call if they choose pass on case or choose to represent. Waste of time. Non-responsive.
