Extraordinary Attorney
Jason is a humble, honest, compassionate and hard working attorney. He helped me in a felony criminal case. He managed to have all charges dismissed. During the entire proceedings, Jason was clear, compassionate and reasonable. He demonstrated great care and genuine interest in fighting an injustice. He worked tiredlessly and brought peace and clarity to me, when I needed it most, and when other attorneys I previously hired couldnt. Because of his extraordinary work ethic, I have retained him to represent me in two other civil matters. I have recommended him to friends and family and highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a hard working, diligent, compassionate and reasonable attorney. His professionalism is unique and says a lot about his character and integrity. I will have none other than Jason represent me in any future cases. Thank you Jason for everything you have done for me and my family. Eternally grateful! Thank you.

Most Honorable Lawyer in Los Angeles
I don't write reviews very often except when I am extremely disappointed and I want to warn the public, but my experience with Jason Buccat was so amazing I felt that he deserves a positive review. Not only is he an outstanding Attorney, he is also a very good man. Rarely do I meet Lawyers in this city with such integrity, honesty, knowledge and responsiveness. We've all hired lawyers to help us with legal issues, and more often than not, we wouldn't want to be friends with them. Jason is different, he's honorable, thoughtful, he is incredibly pleasant and ethical. He took the time to explain the granular details of my case. Not only was I happy with the outcome of my case, I was most impressed with his responsiveness; he replies to every text message and email in a timely manner. If you need legal advice and legal representation, do yourself a favor, go with Jason Buccat, you won't regret that decision. 5*.

Excellent lawyer, one in a million
Me and my family had a very unpleasant experience with a few bad egg police officers. As we all know, officers enjoy an almost untouchable status; to the point there are very few lawyers who will take your case against the police, and even fewer who can do so succesfully. Mr. Buccat listened to our case, poured over our files, processed all our paperwork, and moved everything forward. In the end, we were able to receive a settlement from the city as they did not want to move forward with the solid case Mr Buccat was able to build and represent. We were confident that had we gone to trial, Mr. Buccat would have succeeded in court as well. I had reached out to many different lawyers (around 6 of them), Mr Buccat took the case where others would not even give us the time of day. I highly recommend him for his professionalism, experience, and ability to represent with success. Rah' -Jonathan

Top Notch Attorney
Mr. Buccat represented me against the State of California in criminal court, Domestic Battery. In hindsight he probably knew my wife was doing much more than playing a role as an abused wife. I cannot speak highly enough about how professional and proficiently Mr. Buccat defends his clients. He recognized my weaknesses and kept me from being my own worst enemy. He performed in a subtle manner and clearly outlined the details of the case in the closing argument. His patient and non-threatening demeanor was key in defending my case to an acquittal. A man I know, John once wrote an article about how many who hire attorneys, soon forget "the value of the product" they purchased when they hired their legal representative. There will never be a day when I forget the feeling I had driving across the Vincent St. Thomas bridge after my acquittal. Jason Buccat was worth three times what I paid in legal fees. A %100 percent, rock solid attorney, who I shall never forget.
