Highly Recommend!!
My wife & I chose Josh Driskell for our estate planning documents (will, power of attorney & healthcare directives) based on his terrific reviews - which are all very well-deserved! Josh is very organized and knowledgable. He explained everything in great detail and answered all of our questions and concerns. And he did a great job preparing all of our documents! He’s also a really nice guy with a good sense of humor. We decided to go with his estate planning package, which we found to be very reasonable, compared to other attorneys in the Greater LA area. We highly recommend Josh!

SO helpful and easy to talk to
It was just a phone call, but Mr. Driskell was very friendly & approachable, and I didn't at all get the impression that he was just looking to get a client. If I find I need a tax lawyer, I'll be back!

Absolutely Brilliant
I can sum up my recent experience with Mr. Driskal -- the work, the manner, attitude and efficiencies -- with two words -- Absolutely Brilliant!!! Thank You, Josh, because you are who you are! Because you listen (get it) and act on it, I have a beautiful new apartment that I can actually afford! I had been on a waiting list for low income apartments since 2008. Some legal technicalities nearly cost me the apartment and by the time I made with Mr. Driskal I was in serious jeopardy of losing the apartment I had waited for, for so many years. Mr. Driskal because you worked so Fast (Even through the Holiday) and Cared, my life is forever changed! Thank You! Richard

Landlord eviction issue
SUPERB! That describes Joshua Driskell. Joshua Driskell was beyond superb in his customer service skills, professionalism and proficiency! I live in Las Vegas, NV and had a property in So. California, that I was having tenant problems with. His promptness and thoroughness in helping me out went above and beyond what I ever expected out of an out of town lawyer. He is a lawyer that actually answers his messages, therefore I always got answers to questions very quickly. I will recommend him over and over again! If you have an issue, he is definitely the man to call. A lawyer with INTEGRITY!!!

Mr. Driskell was very friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me clear answers I needed to handle my LLC tax issue with the California Franchise Tax Board, potentially saving me thousands of dollars. In the case that things take a turn for the worse down the road I will definitely not hesitate to hire his legal services. Thanks again!

Josh is handling my Landlord-Tenant issue
We are still in the process of fiighting my case against my landlord, but without Josh there would be no case at all. I feel secure knowing he is fighting for me. He has been very attentive, knowledgable, dependable, and communicative, his assistant Jen is also very good. I'm looking forward to a favorable conclusion to my case, which I'm certain he will ensure.

Midland Credit Debt
Previous review was incorrect. 5 Stars across the board! Josh was extremely thorough and quick with his phone or email responses. He walked me through every step of the services he would provide as well as his success rate in dealing with these types of issues. He negotiated a lower payoff and everything was completed and accepted within 30 days.

At a time when others wouldn't respond and things were looking pretty bad, Mr. Joshua Driskell responded and it was a Sunday! He was able to answer my questions on tenant rights and get me to answer appropriately to the summons, saving me my place. I truly appreciate that he answered my calls when I needed his advice even after business hours. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Highly Recommended!!!
I went to Mr. Driskell in June 2013 to discuss filing bankruptcy on my business. I was very hesitant about the process because of all the negativity typically associated with the lasting effects of bankruptcy. However, Mr. Driskell was very informative and able to accurately inform me, in a step-by-step manner, how the process would work and how it would effect myself and my family. He was able to answer all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. There were several unexpected things that popped up throughout the process and he always initiated a personal call to me with an explanation. It was a big relief to hear from him before getting a notice in the mail full of legal jargon that I wouldn't have understood, and most likely have caused panic, had he of not been proactive. The bottom line is that Mr. Driskell is RESPONSIVE, professional and extremely trustworthy. I recommended him to several people and would definitely use his services again should the need arise.

Josh was the easiest person to work with. We would highly recommend him to our friends & family! He made sure everything was explained throughout the time he was representing us & he always made us feel comfortable. There wasn't a single time that he didn't responded quickly to a message or e-mail we sent him. We're extremely grateful Josh was our attorney, he made sure we got what we deserved & he fought to make sure that happened!

Mr. Driskell handled my personal financial matter with ease, professionalism and quickness. Before retaining Joshua as council, I spoke with several other attorneys and they did not exhibit the knowledge and skill that he possesses. Everything that transpired happened exactly as he said it would, leaving me very pleased!
