also known as A Certified Family Law Specialist
My name is Cameron Fernandez. I have been certified by the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization, as a Certified Family Law Specialist. In fact, I am a second-generation Certified Family Law Specialist. I work hard to protect my clients' rights, and advance their causes.
In addition to my professional success, I am a proud family man. My wife and I have been married for almost 17 years and have blessed with 5 fantastic children. We enjoy sports, the beach and traveling. I work hard as a family law attorney in order to provide for my family. As ironic as it is being a divorce lawyer, I am absolutely pro-marriage and pro-family. We are very active in our church and do our best to be good Christians.
I enjoy most sports, but love playing baseball, basketball and surfing. Once a year my dad, my brother and I travel around the country and play in hardball tournaments in various major league stadiums. I play basketball one evening a week and surf as often as I'm able to squeeze it into my schedule.
I have been practicing family law as an attorney for over 10 years. That said, I began working in a family law firm before I started law school. I was fortunate enough to work in a family law firm all through law school, and to be mentored by my mother, another Certified Family Law Specialist, which enabled me to obtain years of practical and substantive legal experience before I began practicing law.
If you believe you need a family law attorney, I invite you to schedule a consultation to meet or speak with me. I am always happy to help and give you my best advice.

Cameron is one of the finest attorneys and finest individuals I know. First and foremost, he is a man of character and integrity. He is a committed family man and a loyal friend. Cameron is also exceptional as a practicing attorney. He understands family law at a level very few will ever attain. In addition to he knowledge he is something of a perfectionist. Let me put it this way, no attorney would want to go against Cameron at trial. Cameron will out strategize and out prepare virtually any opposing counsel. I highly recommend Cameron to any one looking for a Family Law or Divorce Attorney.
