Empathy And Compassion Most Attorneys Lack
I was in a dire situation in the middle of my ugly divorce and Joe was the only attorney to really exhibit true compassion for my situation. I had been dealing with an incompetent attorney who falsely represented information going on in my case, was constantly changing stories and information, and I ultimately terminated after she flat out failed to present any information or argument to my benefit. I had lost my job, relocated to a new state and had that awful woman swallow almost $4000 of my father's money. Joe reached out to my message on Legal Match and was willing to come to my rescue when no one else would. His assistance and advice was invaluable, and his kindness equally as so. I was fortuante to reach a settlement before retaining his services, however, I would strongly recommend this attorney to anyone looking for representation with brains and a soul.

HIGHLY recommended!!!!
Joseph Land was completely different than any other attorney I have worked with in the past. He really cares and it shows. First he was incredibly knowledgeable. From the first conversation I had with him until the last he was able to successfully explain to me the process of my legal problem and what he was going to do to help me. He was very responsive to all my calls and questions and seemed enthusiastic each time I spoke with him. I was shocked that he answered his phone on a weekend and was willing to talk to me! I definitely needed a lot of support during my difficult time and he was able to put me at ease. The second great thing about him is the fact he is honest. I have dealt with other lawyers in the past and I always felt that the things that they were telling me were not correct and they turned out to be wrong. With Mr. Land everything he told me was the truth and it turned out to be that way. He knew the process inside and out and prepared me for everything. He is also incredibly honest with his billing. Attorney's aren't free and I realize that but Mr. Land did not nickel and dime and I was shocked at the final price. I was very impressed. I really would recommend Mr. Land to you if you have any type of Family Law legal matter. It was a wonderful experience dealing with him and I will certainly use him again if I have any other legal needs.

If you’re deciding on a lawyer to hire, look no further. Joseph is the one!
I had a DCFS case, Joseph and his team had the case closed in my favor. If you're looking for a Lawyer, Joseph is the one! He answered all my questions. Always responded to my texts within minutes. He knows the ins and outs. Give him a call, you want him and his team by your side in court. 10/10 would recommend!

Thank you Joseph
I was having issues with my divorce and ex and feeling overwhelmed. I found Joseph on Avvo and reached out. He quickly got back to me, dissected my case, and presented me with various options. I was overjoyed with his guidance and support. I appreciated Joseph for being responsive, straightforward, and compassionate.

Joseph Land Saved My Family
I truly can't say enough good things about Joseph Land and his crack team of professionals at Land Legal Group. There is simply no other way I could assess this firm than to say their professionalism and expertise is unparalleled. Joe Land has been a caring, yet no-nonsense voice throughout an extremely trying time and one where I felt all hope was lost. Without Land Legal Group I wouldn't have the happy family arrangement that I have today and if you are considering representation in such a matter I would encourage you to engage their services... you can't get a better or more passionate advocate.

The BEST of the BEST!
If you’re looking for the BEST in class when it comes to Dependency & Family Law attorneys, look no further. Joseph Land came highly recommended, and he has exceeded my expectations time, and time again. Joe will give you everything he has to offer in order to win your case for the benefit of your family; and most importantly, your children. I personally have been blown away by the honesty, integrity, diligence, and expert counsel that Joe provided in helping us navigate through a nightmare situation. A situation that no parent should ever have to face. Joe and his team are patient and kind, know when to charge, and know when to hold; they understand everything is on the line. I have never had an attorney that I trust so completely; never. Joseph Land is a trustworthy attorney who cares deeply for his clients and their children. It has been a blessing and a privilege to have him as our attorney.

Knowledgeable, Companionate, Patient and Trustworthy
Joseph Land is one of the most capable attorneys I've worked with, working in the child welfare system (DCFS), dependency court and family court. He understands highly complex cases and is respected by Judges, DCFS, and his Peers. When DCFS unlawfully took my children from me, Joseph brought them home safely. Above all, Joseph cares about the children that are affected by the trauma of separation, conflict between parents and the overall impact of the flawed Los Angeles County judicial system. Joseph continues to guide and advise me, as our relationship did not end when the dependency court case closed. I would highly recommend Joseph, as he is honest, reliable, and patient. Most importantly, he gets the job done right.

Good Results!!
I do recommend Joseph Land as an attorney. He was very flexible with payment plans and helpful with questions. Few days ago my DCFS case got dismissed and all of this was a combination of him doing lots of lawyering and me doing my part as a responsible parent.

Outstanding Child Custody Support
Joseph did a terrific job for our family on a long, drawn out family court case. We worked with him on a child custody case and always found him responsive, supportive and calm. Emails were always returned at night and early morning and Joseph followed up when he said he would. Our case closed today and we are elated with the outcome. We had a choice between a court appointed attorney and Joseph and are very glad we had Joseph as our attorney.

Took the time to speak with me despite a busy schedule
Thank you so much for taking the time to speak to me with candor and empathy. As a man, it is tough to navigate the family law process because there are lots of biases against men. You made the process less stressful.

Amazing Attorney!
I was referred to Joseph Land by Kyle Puro. Even though Joseph was busy on the day of my hearing with other court hearings, he gladly was willing to represent me. Joseph was accessible whenever I needed to talk to him or had any questions. From the moment I met him, I knew that I was in good hands. His cross examination process was right on point and intense. Thanks to his knowledge and expertise, the restraining order against my daughter’s father was granted for three years and I was granted full legal and primary physical custody of my daughter. He truly does care about his clients; he will go out of his way for you! He was very supportive and he knew what he was doing. I had nothing but a great experience with Joseph! I strongly recommend his services! Once again, thank you for taking the challenge!

Outstanding Service
Joe, Niña and the rest of Land Legal are by far the best group of attorneys I’ve come across. They were thoroughly prepared for each and every regardless of the matter, big or small. Joe showed incredible expertise and knowledge when dealing with all aspects of my very complicated DV and child custody cases, leading to victories on all matters. I knew I picked the right team when they never hesitated to answer the phone or reply to emails (even on weekends) always giving a straight forward answer and explaining the details of every case and hearing. What I really appreciated is that they always treated me and my family, like family. I was always comfortable with them and never feeling pressured or feeling like I was just some client. Their rates are more than fair as their professionalism, dedications and proven results to their clients far outweighs the cost. Child custody is not something anyone wants to go through, I am extremely lucky to have Joe and the team by my side and let me tell you, they are simply the best. I can not recommend them enough and if you’re looking for honest, straight forward attorneys, give Joe a call. Thank me later.

Great attorney. Helped cancel child support case!
I hired Joseph for help with a child support case that was filed against me by a woman I had only met once. He was instrumental in opening the communication line between myself and the woman and ultimately helping cancel the child support case to all of our agreement. He even refunded me half of the retainer fee. Thank you so much!

Beyond Expert Service
If 10 stars for excellence was possible-That's where my review would stand! I first reached out to Joseph to seek help in my parenting case. Joseph was calm and confident in his approach which made my family and I feel that much more comfortable and positive with the situation. Without him, I do not know where my case would have gone. I truly recommend his caring and professional opinion to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Teacher
If you've ever been through a divorce, you know how emotionally and physically stressful it can be. My separation was unbelievably nasty, and to make matters worse my children were abruptly separated from me after being their primary caretaker for 12 years. I was in a state of devastation, denial and panic. I desperately began reaching out to various lawyers I researched online, and the only one who returned my call within an hour of leaving a message was Mr. Land. I can't explain the sense of relief and comfort I felt after speaking with him for only 10 minutes. He put my stresses at ease and immediately set up an appointment to meet me the following morning to review my case. Mr. Land has been one of the GREATEST blessings in my life. I have heard too many nightmare stories about lawyers, and I feel SO grateful that my experience has been the complete opposite. If I can describe Mr. Land in three words, they are: HONEST, ETHICAL, and SINCERE. I was very emotional in the beginning of my separation, but he was always reassuring, helped me remain calm, and exhibited a tremendous amount of patience with me. What makes Joe unique from all other attorneys is that he is UNBELIEVABLY responsive!! NO EXAGGERATION! He always makes himself available to answer questions no matter how repetitive they may be. He responds to my calls and texts outside of working hours and sometimes on the weekends!! Seriously, who does that?? Joe is also one of the humblest attorneys I have EVER met and is very approachable. He always makes me feel important and is concerned for me like a friend and not just a client. Joe and his entire staff are very professional. I absolutely ADORE Alexandria! She is a gem and is also very responsive. I appreciate her thoroughness and punctuality!! They are an amazing team and maintain excellent rapport with opposing counsel. Joe is VERY honest and straightforward about what to expect and doesn't make empty promises. I think that's a rare quality to find in a lawyer these days. I absolutely LOVE and admire Joe on so many levels and consider him a friend. Without a doubt he is the BEST of the BEST in LA!! Mr. Land is deserving of 10 stars!!!! Love you Joe!!

Thank you Joseph!
I've never written a review before online because I am a private person. I just had to say thank you to Joseph and his team because they treated me like family and really made me feel more comfortable about a really crappy situation. I was lost and didn't know where to turn. When I found out about Land Group I decided that I had to give them a chance and Im really happy that I did. They handled my restraining order case with ease and made me feel confident throughout the entire process. Thank you so much Joseph! <3 <3 <3

The best choice I could have made for a lawyer
Joseph Land is an amazing lawyer, I had a very tough case to try and get more time with my daughter. Mr Land was upfront with me and let me know that might case might need to go to court a few times before I got the results I wanted and this was tough to hear, but I trusted Joseph and he came through just like he told me he would. I went from minimal time with my daughter to being able to take my daughter to my home state for visits and get time with her family. It wasn't easy and Joseph was upfront and told me it wasn't easy, but he let me know everything would be okay if I just trusted him and I am glad I did because he gave me something that is hard to get, he got my life back. The only thing I regret is not getting Joseph as my lawyer when I got a divorce, he treats everyone like family and he responds quick to any questions because he knows your case is affecting your life and your relationships. His team is as professional as they come, they hold a vast amount of knowledge so don't feel like any question is a dumb question because it is not

Highly Recommend
I was referred to Land Legal Group and within minutes of talking to Joesph Land and Christine Milo I hired them! I was in a difficult situation and they both made me feel so comfortable and confident that my case would be closed, which it was! Both Jospeh and Christine were extremely responsive and knowledgeable! I hope I am never in a situation where I need to hire them again but if I was I would without a doubt call the first. I highly recommend their services!
