Good Personal Iniury Lawyer
was in a rear end car accident last year and hired Mr. Glotzer’s office. It wasn’t a big case but their office helped me with my property damage claim and did a good job resolving the injury portion of the case as well.

Best Personal Injury Attorney
My husband and I are both from California and recently moved to Las Vegas. We unfortunately suffered an accident and felt overwhelmed and did not know who to talk to. Mr. Glotzer was highly recommended by a close friend and he was able to give us peace of mind and help us through the process. My husband and I both received a higher settlement than expected. We are both very grateful for his help.

EXTREMELY HELPFUL IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION
Josh was my life saver today... well it felt like it. I'm a civil consumer attorney and my client was being threatened by a deputy that he would arrest her because a dealership claimed she stole a vehicle (she did not, she has a contract, she has made payments). It was an insane situation to get a call from my client saying she was being arrested. I talk fast but Josh understand the facts very quickly. (I often tell my friends not to call me if they are being arrested- I know nothing about criminal law)... My clients and my friends will call Josh if they are ever in that situation. Josh chewed the deputy out, avoided arrest for my client, and was spectacular to listen to. Thank you Josh for jumping in and helping me today.

Los Angeles Injury Lawyer
I was in car accident over a year ago. I was rear-ended and suffered a painful back injury. The insurance company fought me and did not want to pay. Mr. Glotzer's office got me a great recovery for my medical bills and pain and suffering. I would hire in the future.

Great Car Accident Attorney
I was in a car accident in Los Angeles two years ago from today. The other driver ran a red light and t-boned me causing significant damage to my car and painful back injuries. The insurance carrier for the negligent driver denied my claim and Mr. Glotzer's office fought for two years getting a recovery of over 4 times my medical bills. I would recommend Mr. Glotzer to anyone injured in an accident.

Excellent personal injury lawyer
My friend recommended Mr. Glotzer's firm after she was injured in a car accident. My car was damaged after a rear-end collision on the freeway. Mr. Glotzer's office represented me and was able to get a fair settlement. He is a great personal injury lawyer. I would recommend for car accidents or other injury cases.

Thanks Josh!
My wife was in a car accident last year and Josh did an amazing job representing her. It's very refreshing to see someone in his profession that actually cares and puts his clients first. He's the best in the business and I feel so fortunate that I was referred to him. Keep up the great work and thanks for everything you did for my family!

Smart Lawyer You Can Trust
Josh represented me in some convoluted business litigation where I was deposed as a third-party witness and the plaintiff was someone I would potentially be litigating against in another case. He stayed focused, kept me on track and when the plaintiff's lawyer started trying to put words in my mouth, Josh quickly called him on it and shut him down. He's an experienced, diligent attorney you can trust. I recommend him highly.

Thank you Joshua W Glotzer
I was at the end of a real rough patch when I was crashed into. I had lost my job and then my insurance lapsed because i was struggling to even pay my rent. The day after I landed a new job I was at a complete stop and was blindsided. I hadn't recieved my first check so my insurance was still non existent. The person's Insurance company tried to strong arm me because of my lack of insurance even though it was completely their clients fault. That is until Joshua W. Glotzer came to my rescue. I can't give higher praise him and his firm. From the time I entered their offices to the final result of getting my hospital bills payed and my car back completely fixed was a positive experience. I most assuredly recommend him and his firm to anyone who wants proper representation. Thank you Joshua

Bogus Medical Billing Gone! Thanks Josh!
I was injured by a negligent physicians assistant at UCLA Medical + was subsequently gouged by their billing department. Calling phone # on bills will not reach anyone who can actually discuss issues. Instead massive hospital requires any questions + complaints in writing...via snail mail vs email. Maybe you'll receive a response in a month or maybe the response letter telling you UCLA doesn't care will get lost in the mail like mine apparently did, which you won't know about til you suddenly get your first letter in the mail from A COLLECTION AGENCY!? Prohibiting patients from discussing such issues with an actual person is wrong. Clearly, such a system is intentionally devised to force defeat + just pay obscene bills. Unfortunately, feeding the beast simply perpetuates the intentionally-flawed system this hospital giant has developed for itself. I called Josh Glotzer on principle. He went to bat for me eliminating the bogus procedure from my bill before it had a chance to negatively impact my credit. I highly recommend you call Josh if you too feel you have been over-charged for medical procedures that certainly didn't help you + may have actually hurt you. Unlike UCLA Medical, Josh takes the time to personally follow up with you via appropriate channels for this century such as phone + email. Hospitals need to take patient feedback seriously. Malpractice is no joke!

Our Success Story
We hired Mr. Glotzer to try and get my boyfriend's felony, which took place in CA, expunged so that he could work on a military base here in NC again. Even though the DA tried to throw a major curve ball in our case, Mr Glotzer was still a success!! My boyfriend will no longer have to work twice the hours for half the pay. Mr. Glotzer kept me informed through the entire process calling me personally, not through a secretary or assistant.

Very professional
Handled a case for me several years ago. I received excellent service. The case settled very quickly. I was very happy working with him.

Well experienced attorney with high standards.
Josh, is a total professional and handles his clients with the upmost care and respect. He explained the process of the law to my family and I. Due to his character and professionalism, he was able to keep my family calm during their depositions on my case. Josh and his partners value their clients and they have my trust.

Great Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney
I hired Josh because I was facing 25 years in prison for an attempted murder charge. The DA was offering me 13 years and the public defender was telling me to take the deal. I got Josh on the case and the charges were dismissed. I am a free man because of Josh and I will be forever grateful.

Worst Experience I have had with an attorney
*Personal Injury case* Numerous times I have contacted this office, and been ignored. They claim not to see my emails, and the issue at hand has been unresolved for well over one year. Zero communication from this office, and they did not explain the settlement well, and when I finally figured out what it all meant, no one has given me any money for my claim. Of all the attorneys I have ever hired over the years, this firm is by far the worst for communication, client attentiveness, and resolving my case from both the office paralegal to the individual attorney. No way I could ever recommend them to anyone now or in the future.

Response from Joshua Glotzer January 30, 2018
We are sorry you had a frustrating experience with our firm. However, this matter does not sound familiar and if your case setttled and you have yet to be paid it is because your medical bills and liens are being negotiated and you will be paid once the case is fully resolved. Again, this unfortunately can be a long and frustrating process. We have never had any complaints in this regard and we strive for the utmost client satisfaction in every case. Please contact me directly to discuss your specific concerns.
