Aaron Dishon is a lawyer with integrity. He is professional, caring and is who you want to hire during this difficult time. He gets results and you won't be disappointed

Aaron Dishon demonstrates a high level of knowledge, talent and professionalism in his field of law. They gave me legal options I didn't even know existed. I was in an abusive relationship for many years and was ready to take measures to dissolve my marriage. Aaron came highly recommended to me by several others and it is now apparent to me why he is so well respected in the legal world. His staff is professional, courteous and Aaron has exceeded my expectations in representing me. Dishon and Block goes above and beyond and truly cares about their client!

I've been a client of Dishon & Block for over 7 months now. Attorney Aaron Dishon played it very professional at the beginning, he had all the time in the world to listen to your case. As soon as I wrote him a check for $10,000, he never returned my phone calls and I was pushed to one of his unprofessional and abrupt staff. Carrie doesn't know much about pretty much anything. This firm keeps on dragging my case from one hearing to another, month after month and it's been 7 months and I haven't been able to see my daughter
I asked him for a refund and as usual refused to even return my phone calls. Do NOT make the same mistake I made. I would never recommend him to anybody.

Aaron Dishon had represented me in my child support dissolution challenged by my ex-wife. He was my third attorney to finally get it right with a G.S.D. - Get Stuff Done approach and attitude that was able to save me thousands of unjust monthly child support. His office staff was incredibly professional and responsive on any and all requests, communications and inquiries. Aaron's ability to be strategic and factual with reference to the law was superb. His knowledge and reference to case history is strong and assisted us in planning our case that ultimately won a fair and equitable resolution. Aaron was not afraid to engage when needed and immediately act on tactics to win.
On a personal note Aaron was personable, understanding and was finally the attorney whom gave me the confidence I needed as a father to be able to fight for what was right instead of the typical "father against all odds" scenario that many attorneys will just want you to accept. Thank you Aaron for seeing this through fruition , being my legal counsel and advisor through the toughest time of my life!

Mr. Dishon was happy to take my business and represent me through months of child custody negotiation only to fail to see the case through to the end when my final hearing conflicted with a vacation. His "solution" to this issue (of which he gave me less than two days warning, despite knowing that he would be gone weeks in advance) was to put a colleague on the case who had never spoken with me before nor reviewed my case. Tens of thousands of dollars worth of assurances that he would see my case through only to turn it over to someone completely unfamiliar with it at the last minute, with no warning. Not acceptable.

I was paying a large alimony order to my ex while she was cohabitating. Aaron was able to get the order reduced to zero. More importantly, Aaron was able to bring legal pressure on my ex and her counsel to come to the table to reach a final settlement and fully resolve all supprt issues.
The results were excellent and the peace of mind for me was priceless.

Aaron racked up the billable hours as fast as he could. He knows what he's doing, but he isn't for the average working person. If you don't have the cash flow the job won't get done. Now I am broke and still going thru my divorce.

Aaron Dishon has been a pleasure to work with over the years. He is a competent, caring, and responsive attorney that gets results for his clients regardless of their situation. He realizes that divorce is a difficult ordeal for everyone and treats his clients with professionalism and respect while getting the results they deserve.
Every case is treated as a unique situation and every member of the team is always there to answer questions pretty much at all times.
I recommend Aaron Dishon for anyone trying to get their fair share during a divorce regardless of whether the case is related to spousal support payments or splitting up assets between ex partners. He is very experienced in all of these areas. I have spoken to other satisfied clients as well that can vouch for Dishon and Block and their ability to deliver results.

Aaron Dishon is the attorney that handled my divorce case over 4 years ago. He was able to get me an agreement that was fair and equitable to all parties. My ex’s lawyer was proposing a much less equitable settlement. I found this page while looking for his phone number. I again need his professional guidance to help adjust my support obligation I would never use another attorney for family law matters. As a man, I really feel the court system is not working fairly for me and need a professional to fight for my rights.

Aaron Dishon is a no nonsense, yet compassionate professional. Right from the start, he made it clear that I would benefit from the resources of a highly experienced and dedicated team. He more than kept his word. Specifically, his partner Carrie Block played an invaluable and significant role through every aspect of my case. Chandra Moss also provided timely contributions to help bring about success on my behalf.
My adversarial family law case was highly complicated and involved post divorce litigation that has been going on for 8 years. I just wish I had retained Aaron from the start and not just for the past 6 months. He and his office staff not only kept me informed of every action, but utilized his relationships outside his firm, as well. His credibility among legal peers enabled us to get the best experts and testimony for a victorious outcome for my autistic son.
The mother had been neglecting our son’s special education needs and developmental therapies for his entire life. She manipulated the Court system and isolated him through a home school charade to cover her years of inaction. Thanks to Aaron, we accomplished everything we petitioned for. Our son is now receiving professional therapy through proper school enrollment, has his own Court appointed attorney, a Court ordered unification therapist, and my educational rights have been completely restored.

I had a very complicated case involving a spouse who had years to plan an exit and was skilled at hiding assets and avoiding work in an effort to avoid both child support and spousal support. Aaron stated focus on the best long term, was brutally honest, and resolved the issues surpisingly quickly. I know it would have been very easy for an attorney to run up our fees or prolong the case . I have recommended him to both family and friends. In the end I had more than twice the amount my ex spouse had offered, found retirement funds my ex had said did not exist, and much more. I am forever grateful to him and his staff.

Aaron Dishon defended me in a spousal support action by my ex-spouse for two years and ran up $60,000 in fees and costs. Trial was delayed 4 times and on the 5th attempt he was ill and refused to allow his associate to represent me despite my asking and demanding that she be allowed to do so. This resulted in a long, expensive mediation that went no where. I had asked him several times not to have another attorney involved because of the cost, yet when we really needed her to represent me, he refused. He is a very knowlegable attorney, but my experience is that he was more interested in billable hours than my welfare. I terminated him and am considering a bar complaint against him.

Aaron Dishon was recommended to me by a retired judge from Orange County. Aaron provided excellent representation during a support modification that was initiated by my Ex. I wish that he had been the attorney representing me during my divorce proceedings. His knowledge, experience, and energy are really impressive and made a difference in my case. Aaron has since represented me in post divorce matters and I feel really protected in court. His honesty, confidence and experience made me feel calm and I can relate to him as a personal friend. His associates are wonderful people who are very familiar with my case. I would highly recommend the Dishon and Block firm to anybody who is going through divorce issues.

I hired Mr Dishon from a referral from another attorney I knew. I was very glad I found him just in time before my court hearing. My ex-husband was very abusive and wanted to take custody of my child. Mr. Dishon was very understanding and knowledgeable and was able to fight back for me. He knows what he is doing. He is tough but personable and gives me the time of day, unlike other attorneys I went to in the past.

I would recommend Aaron to anyone who needed a divorce attorney or asked me who I used. He took really good care of me. He doesnâ€™t sugar coat it, and thatâ€™s good; it was like a reality check. He identified with my desire to stay home with my children and how beneficial that has been and will be. I know that Aaron is a Dad himself and this definitely has an impact on how much he cares about protecting the children in a divorce.

It is with tremendous gratitude that I write this review on behalf of Mr. Aaron Dishon of DISHON, BLOCK & KAUFMAN.
November 2009 our son was in the fight of his life for 50/50 custody of his 2 month old son, our grandson. At our first meeting with Mr. Dishon, he helped us realize this was going to be an uphill battle. Mr. Dishon believed we had a strong case but since the child was so young it would be difficult assuring the court the child should spend a 50/50 time share with his father. We knew we needed a strong team like DISHON, BLOCK & KAUFMAN to build a convincing case. It was a long, stressful journey with numerous obstacles along the way, but thanks to Mr. Aaron Dishon and his law firms dedication, perseverance, and time spent, my son achieved his goal. Their expertise, confidence and professionalism made all the difference with our case.
I would personally like to thank the office personnel at DISHON, BLOCK & KAUFMAN. They helped make an uncertain and confusing time in our lives a little easier by their specialized and energetic work ethic in support of our family’s best interest.
We would highly recommend this team for any legal matters.
William and Laurel

I just wanted to write a quick note to say that Aaron Dishon represented me in a very difficult spousal support case which went to the court of appeals, and he prevailed on my behalf. He is a very hard working attorney, and I feel he had my best interest in mind at all times.

Dishon & Block were thorough, extremely competent and very supportive during this difficult process. I was confident in their knowledge and advice on the decisions that had to be made during the course of my case. I was very impressed with their presentation in the courtroom as well as how articulate they were expressing my position on all issues. They were my advocates and did a fantastic job!

If anyone I know ever needs a Family Law Attorney, I will INSIST that they contact Aaron Dishon and Carrie Block. My husband and I have been in a shared custody arrangement with his ex-wife for over 13 years. We have been through the court system several times and had mostly negative experiences with our attorneys. Our frustration with them ranged from somewhat unresponsive at best, to completely inept at worst. Aaron and Carrie were incredibly responsive, and their legal advice is well-balanced, and always keeps the bigger picture in mind. They understand that there are children involved whose lives will be effected tremendously by the outcome. They possess the sensitivity needed in this type of law practice, yet are very comfortable and skilled at being tough when it is appropriate. They fought hard for us, and their office staff is amazing. We could not have asked for better representation!

I found Aaron Dishon at a very difficult time in my life - the outset of my divorce which included custody issues regarding my two children. I was impressed that he was never backed down from my Ex's aggressive lawyer, and he provided excellent representation all the way through my case. This included negotiating a tremendous amount of asset and property issues that were in my favor nearly every time, when we were in position to do so. He really knows his way around the Orange County court system and helped me to protect my families future!

Mr. Dishon was my second lawyer for my divorce. My first lawyer was not getting the job done. When I retained Mr. Dishon his work quality from day one was impecable. He personally returned all of my phone calls and was very focused on every question or concern I had. What impressed me the most was his ability to make things happen. Needless to say my divorce which was taking forever to settle with my first lawyer was settled within 3 months of hire thanks to Mr. Dishon. My advice to all women out there do not ever hesitate to change lawyers it saved me and I am so grateful that I was able to find one of the best matrimonial lawyers in Orange County.
