MEGAN BAZURTO IS AMAZING
Megan was incredible. She’s kind, personable, efficient, helpful with gentle reminders when appropriate, clear, effective with communication and very responsive. She was also good with personable contact with the other party so as not to exacerbate a sensitive situation. She’s so intelligent and thorough. Documents were accurate and I never felt like a number.

A wonderful human being and caring law professional
So many qualities in one person. I can honestly tell you that my experience with Megan is so good, that I would strongly recommend her for your Family, Landlord or tenant, Land use and zoning issues. When a lawyer picks up your phone and even calls you to check on you, it is a simple math to show that the lawyer did not not just take your money and go, but cares about you and your issues.

Megan Bazurto represented me in an Unlawful Detainer. She was very knowledgeable with the laws I highly recommend her.
Megan Bazurto helped me with an unlawful detainer and I did'nt know what to expect but Megan helped me through it. Always helping me, assuring me and listening! She made me feel that I mattered in this terrible situation that created alot of anxiety. I've never met anyone in her profession that could be compassionate and assertive at the same time in one word she is AMAZING!!! Once again Megan thank you and God Bless you from a very greatful client.

Landlord Tenant Issue
I hired Megan to help me evict a tenant after the lawyer I was using provided a 60 day notice to vacate that didn't follow CA law. Megan provided legal notices and had them served. I didn't have to evict however, when the tenant sued me for her moving expenses, Megan helped to prepare my cross complaint, put together my evidence, had the tenant served and mailed and emailed evidence to the parties involved. She charges a reasonable rate and has spoken with me many times to go over information or provide advice without charging for each call, text or email. She really wants to help her clients achieve the best possible outcome. I would definitely recommend.

Divorce case
I filed for my divorce in 2019. Had sought legal help and was stuck in limbo for about 8 months. I consulted with Megan about my case and she knew exactly what to do. I hired her to help finish up my paperwork. She's kind, professional, and communicates every step of the way. I am eternally grateful to her for giving me back my life and sanity. I can start moving forward. Will definitely hire again if I ever need legal help again. Thank you Megan!

Tenant/Landlord 2016
I apologize this took so long for me to post. Megan Bazurto is a professional yet wonderful, amazing and smart Attorney. I highly recommend her as she was able to have a 3 year old eviction that I did not know about until I tried to move overturned as she filed a motion to vacate and void judgement and we won. She put her ALL into my case and for that I will be forever and wholeheartedly thankful and greatful. Thank you, Mrs. Bazurto for being the person you were to me.

Tenant vs landlord
Megan did a awesome job and helped me tremendously. Her customer service is second to none. My landlord sent me a bill for thousands of dollars of repairs. After it was all said and done I ended up getting money back and an apology from the landlord. I would recommend contacting Megan and letting her help you.

Lifesaver!
My husband and I went through an eviction/unlawful detainer situation, which involved a lot of family drama, immigration related threats and a restraining order (ruled in our favor). With Megan's help we came out of this problem in just 2 weeks, which was impossible to imagine because of the COVID-19 situation. Megan was always accessible to us via call/text/emails and she listened to our problems not only as an attorney but like a family member. She kept us updated with the newest laws/regulations regarding Landlord/Tenant cases and surpassed all our expectations. Megan's compassion toward her clients is impeccable. She feels strongly for her client's welfare and is passionate towards each case that she handles. It is hard to believe that there are still some professionals who would go beyond the regular "above and beyond" to help their clients, but in Megan's case its true. Needless to say, that during those tough times we felt extremely safe, well informed and confident under Megan's guidance and can’t thank her enough. I would highly recommend anyone with a landlord/tenant or Civil matter to speak to Attorney Megan Bazurto. She is THE BEST.

Accessible & Helpful with Integrity!
I needed time sensitive legal advice regarding Landlord Tenant issues related to COVID AB 3088 law. Megan was informed, willing to help, responsive and concise. I had a few clarifying questions the law does not specifically address. Megan was willing to clarify the law. She also made me aware of certain actions available to me. I sincerely appreciated her accessibility and willingness to help. Integrity, accessibility, direct, and helpful communication is her calling card! These are awesome and hard to find traits in attorneys. Megan has all of them. I recommend that you call her to find out how she can help. She's accessible and wiling to help! Thank you, Megan S. Bazurto, I sincerely valued your advice!!! Deborah

Outstanding
We hired Megan to prepare a Motion and other legal documents to help a family member in a difficult situation who was being taken advantage of. After an initial consultation, Megan not only caught the fraud, but identified the urgency and worked incredibly hard in a time crunch to protect them. She demonstrated a level of dedication I'd hardly expect from anyone. Her rate was more than fair, and her responses were expedient. She knows her stuff, and put together a well-researched powerfully-compelling case that we never would have been able to do without her. It honestly felt like I was reading a famous case in a law class. She gave us hope in a dark time, and I can't recommend her any higher.

Best attorney for handling difficult tennant.
Made the mistake of renting to a professional eviction evader. Two and a half months using a different lawyer, the tenant had not been served an eviction notice. Megan took over, kept me informed every step of the way and had the tenant out in 2 weeks. I should have used Megan from the beginning.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the excellent work that Megan Bazurto provided as my attorney. If it weren’t for her analytical skills and knowledge, the matter wouldn’t have been settled. Thanks again for your legal advice, time, efforts.

Professional, knowledgeable, friendly
I had a real estate matter that I'd been trying to resolve for past four months and no results. I called Megan Bazurto and left a message, she responded in a timely manner. After original consultation, she explained the next steps. She was very professional and friendly and I felt comfortable hiring her. She resolved my issue in matter of a week. I'd definitely hire her again and highly recommend her. Thank you.

Awesome Attorney!
I hired Megan as a consultant to help me in my self-represented grandparent visitation case that was set to go to trial. I had done all of the footwork leading up to the trial but found myself needing legal guidance for how to introduce evidence, compile witnesses and general approach. From the moment I contacted Megan, she helped me tremendously to streamline what was in front of me, and also to zoom out and pay close attention to the main points in my case and what the judge would be paying attention to. This was extremely helpful for me, as my case was emotionally charged and it was easy for me to lose sight of what would be the judge's perspective. Megan met with me to coach me and help me prepare, and although I had already paid for a set amount of consult time, she was very generous with additional time and I knew it was because she cares and wanted to make sure I had all that I needed. She has been awesome from the get go! She is compassionate and professional and I loved the fact that she tells it like it is. After the trial, she has followed up with me to make sure all went well and was available to help me with a post-trial issue. She's great and I would recommend her to anyone. She helped me through a very difficult situation and provided insight that I believe helped me win visitation of my granddaughter. Thank you Megan!

Passionate and Sincere!
Megan has been the calming force throughout my difficult divorce. She is a genuine person who cares about her clients but is one who does not hesitate to stand firm with regards to issuing solid legal advice. During my case, emotions would run high and she would help me see through each step logically so as to not keep the case from having to go to an unnecessary trial. The goal of resolving my case in a quick manner and with a healthy level of compromise (on both sides) was always kept in mind. Her counsel is a big reason I can walk away from my divorce with the ability to co-parent amicably with my ex. She was always quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. Megan was concise and kept me informed of each step of my case. She not only responded with our portion of the work with speed and accuracy but ensured the opposing council's mistake-riddled documents were quickly rectified so as not to delay judgement. She truly went up and beyond! I would not only recommend her to all my friends and family, but I would use her for all my future legal needs. Megan Bazurto is an attorney you would want to have on your side!
