"We have known Joe Cobert for over twenty five years. On numerous occasions throughout this time, we have required the experience and expertise of Mr. Cobert. He is clear, concise, direct and to the point We value his advice concerning all matters pertaining to real estate. We would never consider entering into a contract without first obtaining his opinion"

Margot and Sam Thomas
"At a time in our lives that we should have been enjoying retirement and everything we'd worked all our lives for, we found ourselves in the pit of despair trying to figure out how we could continue to pay...what had become a huge mortgage payment every month, and buy our grandchildren a new toy at the same time. Everything that brought us joy had to be put aside while we saved every penny of our pensions, social security and small income from part time jobs to make a $4000/mortgage payment. The ... embarrassment, self doubt and humiliation we felt was nearly unbearable. As many times as we attempted to renegotiate our mortgage with Countrywide Mortgage, it just wasn't going to happen - they wouldn't help us. We talked to a realtor about selling our home, which by this time was worth half of what we owed on it - and she suggested we see Joe Cobert. We did. We left Joe's office 2 hours after shaking his hand with hope, relaxed shoulders and the legal, emotional, and ethical counsel that we should have sought years earlier. . .. Because we sought Joe's counsel, and followed his every word we are now living a stress-free, happy retirement, planning a holiday season filled with laughter, grandchildren, cookies, excitement and memories that last forever. ... Joe remained patient, firm and confident which always left us feeling that the decisions we were making were exactly the decisions we should make. . .. Thanks Joe - you really, really made a difference in our lives."

-- Claire and Evan

"Attorney Joseph Cobert has assisted my family with its real estate needs and investments for over 20 years. Joe's expertise in all areas of real estate law has helped us grow our assets rationally with appropriate risk and prudence. He has helped negotiate commercial leases and address landlord/tenant disputes. He has guided us through complex apartment purchases, loan negotiations and tax-deferred exchanges. His real-world experience has been priceless and I can recommend him without reservation."

Dennis R. Fratt, DDS, MBA

Joseph Cobert is a rare combination of a man. First, he is an excellent friend and supporter who generously gives his advice and provides resources from a seemingly unlimited Rolodex. I feel he just about knows everybody and, conversely, just about everybody knows or has heard of Joseph Cobert.

As a professional, his credentials are impeccable: attended top schools, received top honors as well as accumulated a long and solid work experience.

As a mentor, he has offered his insights as a real estate attorney, broker and instructor for over 25 years at UCLA Joseph has organized and volunteered to speak at numerous lectures and conferences, including some of my own at the Beverly Hills Greater Los Angeles Association of Realtors.

I was invited to Joseph's milestone birthday a while ago. At the event I met many more of his close friends. Most of them had been part of his life for far more years than I have had the fortune of knowing him. I felt privileged to be considered as part of that group.

I wish everyone could have a "Joseph Cobert" as a friend.

I have known and worked with Joe for over 10 years. He has demonstrated a willingness to do whatever is required to help both my clients and me. He responds to my calls quickly and is able to provide thoughtful assistance based on his years of experience in a quick and efficient manner. I have entrusted Joe with such matters as my clients of 20 year’s dealings with a partner in a real estate sale and settlement matter where the partner had not been forthcoming with information regarding prior year’s income and expenses. He did an excellent job of dealing professionally with a difficult personality and making sure that our client got what she was entitled to. Joe also helped me on some personal matters including review of a lease for my son involving his real estate lease and LLC in a timely and informative fashion. His input proved to be invaluable when we had to later terminate the lease and the landlord did not pursue the remaining term of the lease based on the changes we made in the lease with Joe’s assistance.

Joe’s clients benefit from his years of experience, particularly in the real estate area, and he is a very valuable resource to have as your real estate and business attorney. I have had no problems in referring clients to Joe.
