Consultation
While Josh did not take my case he did spend 30 minutes of his time talking with me trying to understand and explain my case and direct me to attorneys that fit my case. Josh was extremely kind and very knowledgeable.

Excellent Advice
While short and sweet, Joshua was willing to advise as to whether I had a case worth pursuing free of charge.

A Very Aggressive Attorney That will Get Positive Results
Hired Mr Burt to handle an employment issue I was having... You can't go wrong with this attorney!!!! He is very aggressive and communicates with you all the time. He gave me his cell phone number and office in case I had any questions, now tell me what attorney would do that!!!! From the start to the finish, Mr Burt held his ground and got the most positive result I could have imagined. He even came all the way down from the L.A. area to a unemployment hearing here in the Tracy area, which most attorneys would consider a waste of time. He cares for his clients and makes you feel like family. I would hire him again in a heart beat... Thank you again Mr. Burt

Joshua Burt went far beyond the call of duty in answering all my questions and helping me understand what I need to do next. I am most grateful!

The best
Exceptionally professional when working with me, as I am not familiar in matters of employment law he was patient in his explanations and very thorough. Helped me when it seemed no one else would.Mr. Burt was truelly a blessing when I was wrongfully terminated.

Top-notch
Josh Burt is a top-notch lawyer and has my highest recommendation. Before I enlisted his services I was trapped in a Kafka-esque nightmare and at the mercy of two over-burdened, understaffed bureaucracies that were unable to communicate with each other or with me. Things had spiraled out of my control and I was at risk of severe penalties and thousands of dollars of fines for something that was not my fault. Josh knew just what do and the moment he got involved, everything turned around. He sliced through the Byzantine system like a hot knife through butter and the case was quickly resolved in my favor.

HIRE THIS MAN.
What can I say? I didn't think I would ever need a lawyer......until I was hit by a car. Joshua was suggested to me by my sister and calling him a couple days after my accident was the best decision I ever made. I always pictured lawyers as cold, harsh and money grubbing. Joshua is someone who talks to you like a friend. He is very concerned about your care and well being. When you call him, he is the one who picks up the phone. He responds to you via email very quickly and he works very hard for you. He also explains all things legal in plain and simple English. I would recommend him in a heart beat.

Expedient and effective
Josh is expedient and effective. I appreciated his straightforward approach and his level of communication was just right to assuage concerns but keep me informed at every step of the process. And in the end he took care of everything and my record was cleared. He is also honest about his area of expertise. My husband and I brought some other legal work to him and he promptly made an excellent referral for a law firm that would better suit our needs.

Excellent Attorney
Joshua is a great lawyer. He is my trusted intellectual property and publicity rights attorney. He has represented me in a number of important legal matters, ranging from a copyright lawsuit against a major motion picture studio to managing my intellectual property portfolio. I would recommend him to anyone. He is especially good with celebrities such as myself (Angelyne).

Highly recommended
When we moved into our home, we discovered some leaks were not disclosed during escrow. These leaks resulted in significant monetary damage and a disruption of our daily living for over a year. Mr. Burt provided legal advice and documented legal letters to the previous owner. We were able to recoup the replacement cost of the bathroom and wall repairs from the previous owner.

Be Very Careful
You have to be very careful about hiring this attorney. Your case will not get the full attention that it needs. You will have to check every thing he does including the spelling. He mixes up previous cases with yours. I had a case dismissed due to him not replying in time. Please do your homework and fully check this guy out. I do not want anyone to go through what I had to go through.

Poor representation
I would recommend to avoid using this attorney if at all possible. I was represented by Joshua Burt in a case against AT&T. When engaging the services of the attorney I signed a retainer agreement which clearly stated that he would have errors & omissions insurance (malpractice insurance). After the conclusion of the litigation I contacted Joshua to inquire about his insurance provider. Joshua told me that he did not obtain the contractually agreed to insurance. When I learned that Joshua did not adhere to the contract I contacted the California State Bar to inform them of the breach. The California State Bar informed me that Joshua was going through a personal financial crisis and as a cost savings decided to not purchase insurance. Also during settlement negotiations I requested for Joshua to withdraw as my attorney and dismiss the case. Joshua continued negotiating after my request for withdrawal. It would appear the Joshua's personal financial crisis motivated him to disregard my request for withdrawal and to engage in bad faith negotiations in order to obtain a quick settlement which contained in illegal waiver of rights pursuant to Business & Professions Code 16600. This is truly disappointing because Joshua does seem to have a great deal of knowledge of the law.

Attorney for hire
Unfortunately, I can only respond to what my personal experience was with Mr. Burt. He initially responded to my question posted in a prompt manner. However, I sent him a follow up email to inquire if I could move forward with his services and never heard back from him.
Response from Joshua Burt July 29, 2019
This individual's complaint is inaccurate and has no basis. As Monica says, I did answer a question on AVVO that she posted. Monica emailed me without referring to the AVVO question I asked. I did, in fact, respond to this email asking for clarification. However, several days later, Monica sent me an email that went to spam because she included some cut and pasting from the web and the meta data that comes with it. As a result, my filter placed her email in spam. I did not see her email until I search for it upon reading this negative review. I understand Monica's frustration. However, she was never my client (these are client reviews) and I never saw her second email. Had her email not gone to spam, she would have received a timely response. Monica also had the opportunity to call me as I had provided her with my complete contact information previously. Monica never made such an attempt. I have respectfully requested that Monica remove this negative review. I hope she does so since I do not believe this review is accurate (she was never a client and cannot give an informed client review) and not representative of my work.
