I was fired from a job which I knew was due to age discrimination and Mr Lovretovich spoke to me and took my case.Atty Ellen Cohen handled the case for me and was extremely understanding and kept me informed of everything that was going on with the case.Thanks to her and the whole firm the defendants settled for more than I thought and I owe big thanks to all at the firm who contributed to me winning.

I was very satisfied. He was very attentive to my case and resolved it with little discomfort on my part. I have recommended Joseph M. Lovretovich law firm to a friend and to an acquaintance and would not hesitate to refer him to other employees who need an experienced, knowledgeable attorney.

JML Law is an outstanding law firm. I first hired them in 2009 for an arbitration case. The firm is now representing me in a Workman's Compensation issue.
I recommend Mr. Lovretovich and his outstanding team of expert attorneys.

Mr. Lovretovich and his staff did an excellent job handling my case. Although there is one name on the firm's letterhead, there was actually a team of skilled attorneys that worked on my case. They were all responsive to any e-mails and phone calls that I had. They had a great amount of experience in cases similar to my situation, and they were able to handle all twists and turns in my case with confidence. There does appear to be established protocol and financial parameters to cases in California involving wrongful termination, and I felt it would be important to engage someone who has a lot of experience in this area. I believe the experience factor was very important to the positive settlement of my case, and the firm's systems and procedures for processing these cases worked for me. I believe the fee and cost structure were fair, and there were no surpises in that area. I have a side business that allows me to work with a number of attorneys involved in securities litigation--often times involving millions of dollars of claims. (That is why I show that I have worked with "more than 10 lawyers"--I have never had a personal legal issue prior to this case). I felt that the professionalistm of the attorneys at the Lovretich firm was equivalent to that of the other legal contacts I work with for business purposes.

Joseph, his wife and Karen Cho, were exceptional lawyers, they resolved my case in a very professional manner but with friendly, sincere and warmth attributes. I would not hesitate to re hire them in the future, therefore i highly recommend them.

The workmans Compensation department kept me informed as to each step in the process of getting my case settled. The Attorney in charge of my case responded to e-mails and questions that I had concerning current and future compensation as well as work situations. They listened to my concerns and tried to get my employer to respond to my medical needs. Even now after my financial part of my case is closed they repond to my concerns when my checks do not come when scheduled plus concerns about a speedy reponse from Kaiser for my medical treatment.

I retained Joseph Lovretovich to represent me against my former employer. After almost 1 year, I called his office and discovered they forgot about my case and quickly filed my lawsuit. I had the displeasure of speaking to his wife at one point. The woman has a profane mouth and brags that she fears no one. So much for professional business acumen. After 2 years, I was contacted by Ellen Cohen, a partner at the firm. She was aggressive and said I did not have a case because I failed to provide evidence to support my allegations I was subjected to wrongful termination. It took 2 years!
Mr. Lovretovich suggested I withdraw my case and accept a puny settlement, despite having been slandered or decide if I wanted to proceed with my case. I told him I wanted to proceed and a few days later he sent me an email stating that he could not represent me further and that I would have to seek substitute counsel. Over a period of almost 2 weeks I entered into a war of words with Mr. Lovretovch who sent me an email from opposing counsel, containing the alleged terms of the settlement but not an actual settlement agreement. He lied in his emails, alleging I had been sent responses when he knew he never responded to my inquiries. I found his blatant deviation from the truth disturbing. At one point, he resigned by email (?) but after I contacted opposing counsel, he urged me not to do so again and stated I was not helping my cause. I thought he had resigned? Several days later I received a more than 10 page settlement agreement which was much longer and detailed than the one paragraph record of terms. Mr. Lovretovich and his entire firm should be avoided. They also don't return calls, don't always respond to emails, and each time you call, he has a different paralegal.

My experience with this law firm was very good. I was always told truthful information about my case. I was never mislead or had any unrealistic expectations for the outcome of my case. Mr. Lovretovich and his staff are very good to have work for you.

Joe is the most knowledgeable and experienced plaintiff side employment attorney that I know. He's done more to advance the rights of employees in California than any other attorney. He also spends more time mentoring younger attorneys than anyone I can think of.

Joseph Lovretovich was very helpful with my case and listened to me when other lawyers were too busy. It really seemed like he cared and he fought for me and what was right. He was very responsive and determined and made the process as painless as possible. He is very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. I am very grateful for Joseph Lovretovich and I will definitely go back to his firm should I need his counsel in the future.

The first two attorney's I spoke with about the facts of my case were reluctant to represent me because, as they put it, "the case would be too difficult to prove." As they say, the third times a charm. For my last and final attempt at representation, I reached out to the Law Offices of JM Lovretovich. Not only did they reflect the professionalism one would expect from a Legal practice, I found them to be extremely personable. There ability to empathize with my situation and understand what my family and I were going through meant the world to us. Their professional expertise coupled with the ability to connect on a personal level made our experience with JM Lovretovich a successful one.

I was fired from a job after 14 years of loyal service and received no severance package. After posting my case on legalmatch.com I was contacted by six different law firms. I decided to hire Joseph Lovretovich to represent me and my case was recently settled during a mediation. I feel totally vindicated both professionally and financially. I found Mr. Lovretovich, his associates and staff very understanding and helpful at all times. I highly recommend his law firm.

I found Joe on legal match regarding an employment matter because I had already been deceived by someone who is an attorney but...Anyway, Joe responded to my post and has been a true Angel. He reviewed my case and never asked me for a dime. He was very responsive to my many emails(including night and weekends) and so very honest that is what shocking. It was very apparent that he is a busy man but he always took the time to respond to my every question. I told him that he was a God send and a rarity in his profession. If you are looking for an honest and hard working attorney that really plays is straight, then contact this attorney and I am willing to bet that you can't go wrong. Joe is the right attorney for the job and an attribute to his profession.

Mr. Lovretovich and his entire staff were extremely efficient and professional. In my initial meeting with Mr. Lovretovich I was confident that his background and experience was exactly what I needed. With one very well written letter to my employer and her superiors the entire situation was difused. He also followed up with svereral other concerns that I had.

I was a client of Joseph Lovretovich for the past two years. What I did not like is that the assigned attorney to my case was not very responsive to phone calls and emails. The case ended up being dismissed through summary judgement.

I retained him for a an employment dispute with a major corporation. He reviewed my case and concluded that my case was strong and his track record was over 95% win rate.As to monetary settlement, he said that I should ask for a seven figure number.He also claimed to rarely lose appeals. He delegated case to a new hire and was unreachable, rarely returning phone calls. In our appeal,we were not allowed to assert a legal argument because it was not included our original complaint.
