Joseph M. Lovretovich founded JML Law to carry out his commitment to the representation of the rights of the individual. Mr. Lovretovich was first admitted to practice law in the state of California in December 1976. During his more than 40-year legal career, he has tried numerous cases involving almost every type of legal claim. He has greatly expanded the rights of all California citizens by winning important court cases and has secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients.

Mr. Lovretovich is widely regarded as one of California’s top trial lawyers. He was principal counsel on Colmenares v. Braemar Country Club, which substantially expanded the definition of disability in California. He successfully argued the case of Dee v. Vintage Petroleum, which added significant protections for the victims of racial prejudice; and he won in O’Hare v. MBIA, which further defined the rights of employees as parties to pre- employment mandatory arbitration agreements. Mr. Lovretovich is a frequent lecturer at legal conferences and mentors numerous beginning attorneys throughout California.

Joseph “Joe” Lovretovich was born in Los Angeles. His father was an LAPD officer for 35 years. Joe is a graduate of the University of Southern California and Southwestern University School of Law.
