Super Lawyer
Fernando Luna has been representing me in a complex and tedious divorce. He has always been conscientious, ethical, and well prepared. He has been scrupulous about saving me money by not appearing in court unless absolutely required.

Strong, dedicated and committed
I retained the services of Mr Luna after having my prior lawyer retire and then, unfortunately stumbling onto a law firm that was far more interested in amassing cubic dollars than helping its clients. Please note I am contesting a custody case with an extremely hostile, vindictive and unstable ex. Fernando has given stellar advice and is outstanding in Court! He clearly cares about his clients, and is interested and committed to fighting for them. He is an excellent attorney and if you are in need of family law services - you will be well served to have Mr Luna represent you!!

Just an Amazing Professional!
I hired Mr. Luna after being bitten twice by 2 different family law attorneys from the LA County. To this date, I still am proud that I hired Mr. Luna. One of his amazing quality is that is he is very pragmatic in his approach. Somehow, he knows more than 90% of the time, outcome of an issue, before even going to the court. In my case, he meticulously listened, understood, deciphered and strategized the approach, such that the outcome was almost always favorable. My case was complex to an extent that case was in state of CA, I was living in the different state and the asset involved was in a different country altogether. Not the mention, child custody and support related issues. “Hats-off” to Mr. Luna for being such a professional and diligent person. I must say that it's only because of such attorneys that people still have some confidence in the attorneys. I will proudly recommend Mr. Luna to anyone, anytime. Though he is a very busy attorney, but hire him with 100% confidence, if you need family law attorney. You will not regret. A+

Gratified Customer
Mr. Luna was always professional and respectful. Any questions I had he was quick to respond. Any concerns, he was quick to address. He was very understanding and clarified any uncertainties I had. I was very pleased to have him as my attorney.

Clear and Helpful
Mr. Luna was outstanding in not only handling my affairs but also explaining how things worked and offering advise. I had no idea what I was doing going into a custody dispute, but Fernando explained everything very clear and in a way I could easily understand. This was very importan when making decisions as I was able to clearly understand the real meanings of them and what the long term and short term affects would be.

NEVER AGAIN!
I was unfortunate to be represented by Mr. Luna in a child custody case recently. Mr. Luna Hardly ever returned my calls, overcharged me and always came late and unprepared to court. I do not recommend Mr. Fernando Luna .
Response from Fernando Luna October 28, 2011
This review contains false and misleading information. I have never been late to any court appearance, nor have I ever appeared unprepared at any hearing or meeting. I take great care and pride in representing each and every one of my clients. I will guarantee* any client that, telephone calls and emails will be returned promptly and I will be punctual to any court appearance and/or scheduled meeting. * Clients will not be billed for any court appearance in which I arrive late or for any telephone call not returned within 24 hours.
