5/5 Stars - Best Lawyer in LA, hands down.
I decided to consult Jose after reading his reviews on avvo, and am really glad that I did. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, genuine, caring, and attentive. I didn't end up going through with his services after having an extensive discussion with him on the pros and cons of pursuing my particular case, but I really appreciate him being so sincere and generous with his time. The consultation was free, and I honestly wish I could give him more than 5 stars; he really deserves it. Very grateful for his help. Would HIGHLY recommend without any hesitation.
Thank god for lawyers like Joe!
Joe is not only an exceptional lawyer but a genuinely good guy. We were referred to Joe by the LA County Bar Association to represent us (3 family members) as defendants in a civil lawsuit. Joe was the 3rd lawyer we interviewed but he clearly stood out as he listened and provided his honest, straightforward assessment of our case. We hired him and he proved to be exactly as advertised...smart, patient, level headed, and ALWAYS there for us, anytime with any questions. Our situation was stressful but Joe knows how to put things into perspective and really cares about his clients. Ultimately, Joe helped us win our case...I highly, highly recommend Joe to all my friends & family...a no-b.s. lawyer that knows the law, knows legal strategy and most importantly, puts his clients first!
anyone needing a housing lawyer
Looking for a lawyer can be intimidating and overwhelming. A kind, patient, and helpful person is what all we need. Joe did more than that. He willing gave his time to determine if my concerns were valid. He also gave his honest opinion. His approach is not about HIS money, but the CLIENT'S. While I didn't have a case, we reviewed why and what other options were still available to me. He looks at your individual situation with what is best for you.
Compassionate and knowledgeable
Joe’s approach is exactly how lawyers should be - no nonsense, no games. Instead he is incredibly personable, understanding and more than willing to provide guidance and advice that is actually in the best interest of the individual. He made himself available anytime I needed to get advice on my situation. He is the type of lawyer you want to work with, I am grateful we connected. Highly recommended.
Helped me greatly and expediently in a very contentious matter
My experience with Joe was an incredibly positive one. It was my first time foraying into legal territory in a particularly contentious situation, and Joe was incredibly empathetic with his communication and selflessly generous with his time. He advised me almost as though he was a distant relative, something I imagine is not terribly common in attorney and client relationships. I am deeply appreciative of Joe helping me in one of my most difficult times.
Excellent and Knowledgable Lawyer, Highly Recommended
Jose guided me through one of the most difficult ordeals that I have experienced with patience and skill. He walked me through the legal process every step of the way and was always there for me during the ups and downs of the case. He is an excellent communicator and kept in the loop with every update. His incredible knowledge and preparedness allowed us to win the case and I am so grateful to him! I absolutely recommend hiring him for your legal needs, he will go above and beyond for you.
Helped me with my small legal matter
After calling multiple legal aid offices and lawyers around town, nobody wanted to help me with my situation. Joe was different. He was recommended to me via LACBA's SmartLaw website. I told him about my issue (I was accused of being at-fault in a car accident), and was simply needing legal advice and help reading some paperwork I was served. I said I would pay him for an of hour of legal advice, however he then explained to me over the phone, free of charge for 15min, on what I should do. He explained thoroughly and was really nice to me about some of the legal questions I had. Not only that, he then *emailed* me on what we talked about it and gave me a link to where to fill out certain forms -- which I thought was extremely kind of him.
I think the mark of a good lawyer is one that is nice. I should know... I work with lawyers in the corporate sector.
In the future, if someone needs a lawyer, I would absolutely check with Joe first. No doubt. Thanks Joe.
Great advice , honest, helpful
I called this attorney for advice on a hippa case. He was super nice, helpful, and forthcoming with information to assist me in the case. Couldn’t recommend more.
Thorough and helpful
Joe is the best. I was referred to Joe by the L.A. County Bar Association as their lawyer referral service's ONLY libel defense lawyer (I own a community newspaper). He was thorough and helpful, he obviously knows both the law and strategy, he reviewed my matter and talked about it in probably half an hour, and ended by telling me I don't need a lawyer (at least at this point) and that the other side doesn't have a case. As good as any lawyer I've ever known -- and my kid brother has been a lawyer for 50 years AND my first public relations client in the 1980s was the San Gabriel Valley Lawyer Referral Service. I had many lawyers as public relations clients as well. His clients are in good hands. Thanks again, Joe. Hope to be able to refer you some business.
Was very thorough in detailing the work he did and very honest about his opinion on the chances of winning. Explained everything to me so I could follow closely and understand.
Best lawyer for the job
Jose is one of the most transparent, genuine, and articulate lawyers I've ever had the pleasure of speaking with. I work with lawyers for a living so I know what I'm talking about and Jose tells it like it is, no BS. He was kind and extremely understanding of the situation I was going through. I am going to recommend him to anyone I can as he is the best. He is incredibly informative, real and helpful. Thank you Jose.
Jose is patient and knowledgable!
I sent an email to Jose yesterday and he called me back within a couple of hours. He talked to me for an hour, listening to my story and giving me very sound advice free of charge! I wish that I could afford him, hopefully I will be able to work with him at some point in the future!
Spoke with integrity and honest options.
I consulted with Jose after being forwarded to him via a referal. He took the time to consult with me several times over the phone regarding a very emotonal situation regarding my son. Jose tokk the time to listen. He provided heartfelt personal advice in responce, that helped tremendously in naviagting a very difficult and emotionally charged situation. I deeply appriciated his perspective and empowering information. He could have easily taken the money I offered to pay for his time consulting me, or asked me for a retainer, he did not. To me this level of honesty and respect for his profession speaks volumes to his dedication and respect for the law. I feel he is truly in the field of law to be of assitance and helping people not just logging cases to make money. If I had moved in the direction of legal action, would have hired Jose without question.
Needed some info
Jose listened and asked great questions in order to really understand my case. He was very professional and very proficient in explaining all of the pros and cons of filing my lawsuit. He answered every question that I had and if I did not understand something he make sure to clarify it for me. I would definitely recommend
Honest & Knowledgeable Lawyer
I highly recommend Joe, after speaking with 10+ local attorneys, I went back to him even though he was out of my area as I felt his genuine presence and he offered an honest consultation. He took to time to listen to my sensitive situation and was very throughout in explaining all possible outcomes in detail. So grateful for his honesty and intellectual legal advice!
Sage Advice and a Solid Plan
I consulted Joe on a very complex and senitive issue involving slander/defamation. He spent time asking great questions and unpacking the details. He was patient and explained in detail the law surrounding the topic and also gave me his personal advice based on the senario. His insight gave me some peace for now and a plan should things escalate. I'm very grateful.
Highly intelligent and compassionate
Joe is not a run of the mill attorney. I consulted with him regarding a case I felt strongly about but he pointed out practical pitfalls that I had been blind to. He is a straight shooter, but incredibly diplomatic. I know if I ever have to move forward on such a matter, he would handle it with efficiency and excellent client care, no problem. Attorneys like this are one in a million. I should know, I am an attorney as well.
One of the BEST Attorneys out there!
We were so fortunate to find Joe! We were seeking someone that was highly qualified and experienced and Joe is clearly an expert. Joe is extremely knowledgeable and we appreciate how genuine and thorough he is. We appreciate his responsiveness and would not hesitate to recommend Joe - particularly for those who are looking for the BEST!
