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.

Exceptional Service Through My Divorce
Going through a divorce is an incredibly difficult and emotional time. I am profoundly grateful for Cameron Fernandez for his exceptional service. Before working with Mr. Fernandez, I had previously been represented by two different lawyers. I also interviewed several other lawyers for their potential representation. During this time, I learned quite a bit about divorce lawyers, the courts, and the divorce legal process. I feel extremely fortunate to have had Mr. Fernandez’s representation through the most critical times in my divorce process and through its completion. Equally important, Mr. Fernandez has a stellar support team. Kenneth and Michele are consummate professionals - they always responded to my questions and requests within a day, if not hours. Mr. Fernandez also recommended an exceptional QDRO attorney who drafted the documents to divide the retirement accounts. Thanks to Mr. Fernandez’s counsel, I achieved the most important outcome that I was looking for, a fair settlement that gave me financial security and closure. My sincere thanks to Cameron Fernandez and his team for his dedication and support during this challenging time in my life.

Excellent Attorney
My experience with the law offices of Cameron Fernandez was nothing but positive. He accomplished all my goals and exceeded my expectations. The staff was helpful, professional and very pleasant to work with. Cameron is very knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and answered all my questions step by step through my case. I would highly recommended him to anyone. No doubt the best attorney, in my opinion, in the entire area.

Andrew tran
I wanted to give Andrew Tran a shout out for helping with my divorce case as well as my restraining order case. He responded quickly and was very diligent in my case. He helped me get the things I needed done to keep my daughter and I safe. If he didn't know the answer he worked with his collogues to find the answer as my case was a little more difficult since the other party was incaressated. It made the process a lot easier having him as I wouldn't have been able to do it on my own.

Exactly What You Hope for in a Lawyer
I wasted an enormous amount of money and more than five years with a different attorney before I bit the bullet and made a change to Mr Fernandez. Five stars really isn't enough to convey how pleased and grateful I am that I made that change. If you begin with Mr Fernandez, as I dearly wish I had done, I'm confident you'll feel the same. I just want to list a few specifics: 1. Because I was changing attorneys, I had 13 boxes (!) of files from his predecessor and it did take some time for Mr F. to wade through it all. Once he had finished, there was never a time when he didn't have every bit of the case "at his fingertips" so to speak. His memory is phenomenal and despite being a very busy attorney, he always seemed to be completely conversant with every aspect of my case. 2. And this is a BIG one: Never, ever, did Mr F. say or do ANYTHNG that could be even remotely interpreted as "dragging things out". I am of the opinion that his predecessor and the opposing counsel did exactly that (billing by the hour is certainly an incentive for that kind of behavior) and I was on very high alert for more of the same. Didn't happen!! Mr F moved toward the goal of resolving all outstanding issues promptly and expeditiously--exactly as one would hope an excellent attorney would do. 3. If something needs doing, Mr F does it. He doesn't wait to be asked. His predecessor had neglected to finish a process called "bifurcation" with the result that I remained married when I thought I was then single. He had forgotten--or hadn't bothered--to draft the necessary court order to complete the process. Mr F mentioned one day that he had finished that up "because he knew I was concerned about it". I hadn't asked him to do the work but he knew it needed to be done and he did it. 4. Legal issues can be complex and difficult for the layman to understand. Mr F. has excellent communication skills. He explained everything clearly and carefully as needed. He didn't waste time over-elaborating; nor did he cut corners when I needed more explanation. 5. Mr F is very, very smart and on top of the conversation. For example, at a recent settlement conference, the other party submitted a claim for reimbursement for some expenses that they felt should be my responsibility. In that circumstance it appears to me that there is an expectation on the part of attorneys that they tell each other the truth and so I have an impression that, once the reasoning for the claim is agreed to as it was in this instance, that the numbers themselves would not be questioned. However, Mr F didn't omit to carefully examine the document and quickly noticed that some values had been (accidentally I assume) double counted. That recognition saved me 1/2 of the total. It would have been very easy to skip that mental step and no one, especially I, would ever have noticed. 6. Mr F. isn't only likeable--though he certainly is. He's totally respectable. He's someone you'd want for your neighbor. The one bit of advice I'd offer regarding Mr. F is this: Ask his advice and then follow it! There were two instances in which I was convinced that I was right about something and he, surely, was wrong. So I spent a lot of my own time, and some of his, arguing those points. Fortunately, in time I came to realize the error of my ways. When Mr F says something like "I know you feel morally entitled to that money but the court isn't going to see it that way" just say 'ok' and content yourself with the knowledge that you saved $2000 by not arguing in the courtroom. I'm sorry for you that you find yourself needing an attorney. I couldn't feel more strongly that Mr Fernandez is the best you can find.

Bright, Knowledgeable, Effective and Compassionate - all in one!
Cameron Fernandez is a very bright, professional, knowledgeable and compassionate family law attorney who attentively listens to his clients before creating a thorough, detailed and effective legal strategy to win the case. I hired Cameron's firm right after being poorly represented by an incompetent attorney, when my ex-wife filed a post-divorce motion to modify our agreed-upon children's visitation, joint custody and child support. It was a very nasty, complicated and long case, since it involved litigation in two states over a period of four years. Cameron was upfront and transparent about expectations, cost and length of litigation. He successfully represented me one opposing motion after the other, kept me calm through the storm, and prevailed. He was also successful on the offense, preventing another frivolous motion from my ex-wife. I strongly recommend Cameron Fernandez and his firm as they are the most competent, effective and knowledgeable family law team in California's Central Coast.

Cameron is a life saver!
For the past four years I have been in a nasty and very difficult divorce. My case has many different aspects, which would make any normal person’s head spin. I had a previous attorney, who was very nice and I liked as a person, but in my opinion was over his head with my case and failed me in court. When my divorce finalized, it was by no means the end of my troubles. Due to additional ongoing shenanigans by my ex-husband, I was not out of the court system and I started representing myself in an effort to save what little money I had left. Eventually, significant events with my ex-husband kept reoccurring to where I needed true legal representation, but there was no way I was going to use my old attorney. I did some pretty extensive research of attorneys around the county and came across some of Cameron’s reviews. Many of the details people gave describing Cameron’s personality and his handling of their cases really resonated with me, and so I decided to give his office a call. Cameron was very friendly and warm the first time I spoke with him. He recognized the difficulties and challenges my case presented, but he didn’t seem fazed and agreed to take me on. Like his website states, no case is too complex nor too basic for his team, and that’s completely accurate. I won’t get into the details regarding why I filed for divorce, but I will touch on one point that was the crux of my whole case. I’m sharing this in hopes that it helps other people and gives guidance to those who have similar situations as mine. Prior to filing for divorce, my ex-husband was diagnosed by a mental healthcare professional as exhibiting Narcissistic Personality Disorder. At the time I didn’t put too much thought into it. In hindsight I should have put all my effort into learning about narcissism because after filing for divorce, the ramifications have ripped my world apart. If you don’t believe me, just do a simple Google search on divorcing a narcissist and you’ll see what I mean. It was so bad that I had two attorneys tell me on separate occasions this was the worst divorce they had seen. The reason I’m mentioning this is if you suspect your spouse exhibits narcissistic tendencies and you’re contemplating divorce, you absolutely must retain the services of an experienced attorney that has dealt with cases such as mine, recognizes the seriousness of how every detail needs to be handled, and most importantly is not a wallflower in the courtroom. If this sounds like something you may run into if you’re considering divorce, then Cameron is your man! He is very savvy with these kinds of cases, methodical in his strategy, and pretty accurate in his predictions of how the courts will rule based on the evidence presented. He will be upfront and honest with you, but he’s in no way curt or abrasive. Cameron wants to do the best he can for his clients in an efficient and ethical manner, and he delivers. I cannot stress enough how important it is to get a really good attorney prior to entering a divorce you know will be contentious. Then you won’t learn the hard way like I did. Thank you Cameron for everything. You really have been a life saver.

A Family Law Attorney with Integrity and Heart
Cameron Fernandez is truly one-of-a-kind. He defies all of the lawyer jokes implying lawyers don't have a heart. If anyone entered family law for the right reason, it's Cameron. I'm truly grateful for everything he did for my family when addiction took over and threatened to destroy the wonderful life we created. Cameron legally protected me and my children while still advocating for my wishes to try and save the marriage and get my husband the help he needed. It was a long road and I felt that Cameron was fair in cost and by far the best lawyer I have ever worked with (sadly I've been divorced before and have used two other local lawyers). I never felt like he tried to overcharge and he and his staff were always transparent and available when I had questions or concerns. His expertise in divorce, child custody and specifically his extensive experience in dealing with addiction were priceless in my case. He is a brilliant negotiator which was instrumental in my situation. I trust him wholeheartedly and would recommend him to anyone in any family law matter. Cameron is the best family law attorney around and I don’t say that lightly! When you have a lot at stake, especially the well-being of your children, you can’t settle for second-best. I’m so glad I chose him and god forbid I ever need to hire a lawyer again, it will be Cameron. (Note: I’m keeping my name confidential due to the honesty of this review but I promise I’m a legitimate client of his and truly grateful.)

The BEST law firm!!!
When i was served papers in December 2017, unexpectedly from my spouse, i was in a panic. I called several law firms and made a consultation. I went to the consultation with a law firm other than Cameron's. They explained well what was going on with the legal paperwork, but i didn't feel secure with them. I called and made another consultation with Cameron's law firm and had a consult with Dallas from the firm. Within 5 minutes I knew i was going to hire him. He was so kind, straightforward, honest, compassionate and reassuring. Throughout my case I have also had the privilege of working with Cameron himself. This entire law firm is a rare gem. It's awful to have to have your family go through the legal system, but Cameron and his staff help ease that pain. In July 2018, they helped me win custody of my children and also know how to handle unexpected twists and turns throughout this entire nightmare of a divorce. Not only have they helped me gain custody of my children, but they have started to feel like friends because of how much they have shown that they truly care about me during this process. I feel forever indebted to them and feel beyond blessed that I had them for representation during the custody battle, and continue to have them for representation during the rest of my divorce.

Heart of gold!
Cameron has the heart of an angel! He went beyond professionalism and actually cared about me and my son. His ethics are stellar and he’s the kind of person you are proud to associate with. Cameron changed my perception of an “attorney”. I am forever grateful to him and am honored that he represented me in the manner he did.

So much more than I could have hoped for
Our custody/ family law case has dragged out for almost a DECADE. We were worn and weary. I did a ton of research and had seen Cameron and his associates in action in court. I called their office and was connected with Dallas. From the moment I explained the background of our case and my concerns, I was blown away with how attentive he was to what I was telling him. Dallas was engaging and took the time to let me explain without interrupting (a rarety, I know!). The timeline was short for a hearing, but he and their staff worked quickly yet thoroughly to catch up with the case. The day of the hearing, Dallas' calm and confident demeanor was instrumental to our successful outcome. His ability to minimize conflict and bring the focus back to the issue at hand was one of the things I am most grateful for. We are extremely thankful for his approach. You don't see his level of commitment much anymore in family law. He genuinely cares about the people he represents, and it shows. The other staff members were also easy to reach and friendly, making this process much easier to deal with. As someone that has been stuck in this process for years, I am thankful I have finally found a firm and attorney I can trust. To top it all off, financially I havent found another attorney that will go beyond the distance for such a reasonable cost. I can FINALLY rest easier knowing they are here for us if any more issues arise. There is a reason Cameron Fernandez and his associates are the best along the central coast. Dallas, thank you again. To all looking for a firm that you can trust, look no further.

Don't be fooled by his soft spoken demeanor!!
I was initially referred to Cameron by a friend. He knew I was hurting, and needed proper legal representation. He even agreed to pay for my initial consultation. When I first met Cameron, I wasn't sure how I felt about anything. I trusted that my friend would not refer me to anybody but the best, so I set an appointment. When I first met with a Cameron, I was rather surprised at how calm, and reassuring he was. It did concern me a small amount that he might get gobbled up by the opposing attorney, who had been around for a longer time than he had. Cameron quickly put me at ease, He thoroughly explained to me exactly what to expect, and what was going to happen. He told me exactly what he needed from me, and what he wanted me to do. Surprisingly, he even gave me tips on how to keep his bill lower. Wow!! Now to the point of my review title. When we arrived to our first court hearing before the judge, I was still a little concerned, Once court proceedings started, I all of a sudden I had a completely different person representing me. Suddenly this soft spoken, kind person turned very aggressive in my defense. I found him to be extremely well prepared, and not intimidated in any way, shape, or form by the opposing counsel. Time and time again he cut the opposing counsel off at the pass. He did not let the opposition slip anything past him. At my age, I have seen many professionals work, and I know how confident a good professional is at what they do. I found Cameron to be extremely professional, and could tell he knew exactly what he was doing. I was utterly shocked at the entirely different demeanor that was presented once we got to court. From that point on, I knew everything was going to be ok. I was right. Later on he even slipped in a little used clause into my final decree, that could save me tens of thousands of dollars. I owe my friend a debt of gratitude for referring me to Cameron, and trust me, I have, and will refer Cameron to my friends, and others that might need his services. Oh, and by the way, I was so satisfied with Cameron's representation that I would not allow my friend to pay for that initial consultation. Thank you Cameron for your aggressive defense, and calming demeanor. Both made one of the worst time of my life, bearable.

Honest and Professional
I hired Cameron Fernandez as my Family Law Attorney after he was specifically recommended by both family and friends. I have personally witnessed his professional demeanor, expertise, sound judgment and ability to articulate. I believe he is a man of great integrity with an exceptional moral compass who is highly respected by his clients, his colleagues, the community and the judicial system. Cameron and his staff are dedicated and detail oriented professionals who have been instrumental with advising, collecting, reviewing and submitting all required divorce and child custody documentation. At this time, I have obtained my divorce judgment and full custody without having to personally appear before a Judge. I highly recommend Cameron Fernandez and will not hesitate to call upon him and his team should his services be required again. I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to Cameron and his team. Thank you! Advice to current and future clients - Remember you hired Cameron for his expertise (Listen and apply what he advises) - Be completely honest and transparent - Seek counsel when you have questions - Do your case homework - Attempt to always take the high road with your former spouse - Seek a support group - Find an outlet - Challenge yourself to be patient with the Family Law process - Pray that you find peace

Miracle Worker
Retaining Cameron Fernandez is without a doubt the BEST decision I could have made to keep my child safe and close to me. A few years ago my life changed forever. I found myself in an impossible situation, my ex having all of the connections needed and money to fund his acts of pure hate against me in court while using my son as his tool. Not only was I in this impossible situation but I was also battling it from TX. With all of my support in TX, I had to come to California again to fight for my son. As soon as I met with Cameron, I knew I was in the right place. Knowledge is power, right?! Cameron knew exactly what had to be done in order to correct what my ex was getting away with. I stayed in prayer the entire time and followed Cameron's direction completely. Now I am the primary custodian parent and my son has that beautiful life with me that I have been praying for!! I absolutely recommend Cameron to ANYONE who needs a lawyer who knows the law and can turn, what seems to be impossible, into reality. Cameron has a gift about his strategy, with an excellent mix of knowledge and experience it makes him the absolute best choice anyone could make! I will always recommend Cameron, and if you decide to retain him you’ll see why. The whole team there with Cameron's firm is stellar! Each one that I have worked with played a role in helping me and my family. I am so thankful to all of them!!!

Incredible Attorney
In January 2015, I went online to look for the top divorce attorney in Santa Maria. I read all of the reviews on Cameron Fernandez and made my decision. I made an appointment with his office and met with attorney, Rob Sullivan. Rob told me that if he ever went through a divorce, that Cameron would be his choice. I never looked back after that meeting. Cameron advised me and fought for me for one year in a very difficult divorce until a settlement was achieved. It took less than ten minutes to dissolve my marriage and trust. No matter what reason you need a family attorney, I highly recommend Cameron M. Fernandez and his entire professional office staff. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Great Lawyer - Highly recommend
When I had to find a lawyer to help me through a difficult divorce, I was extremely lucky to have been guided to Mr. Fernandez and his firm. He produced and executed a well thought out plan to bring about a good result for my family and me. Mr. Fernandez successfully diffused numerous attempts from the opposing party when they tried to escalate hostilities. He was available when I needed him and I always felt that he and his firm had me covered. I truly feel that I can trust Mr. Fernandez and his firm to do the best work they possible can with my families best interests in mind. I highly recommend Mr. Fernandez and his firm.

Hard working, fighter, a very smart attorney
My ex had gone through 4 attorneys and she delayed the divorce for over 4 years. I hired Mr. Fernandez on advice of other family law attorneys (after having 2 previous attorneys attempt to help me). Cameron discovered information that was brought to the attention of the ex's attorney and that information was used to FINALLY get the case settled. Great job Cameron and many thanks.

Best Attorney In Town. Professional , Effective and Diligent
My experience with working with Cameron Fernandez and his firm was excellent. My previous attorney had failed to do his job and neglected my case. Honestly, I had lost trust and was skeptical when it came to hiring a new attorney. Right away upon consulting with Mr. Fernandez I noticed a huge difference. My prior attorney had a 15 min consultation, during that time, he asked little in regards to my case and spoken more of the price and retainer of my case. I felt he could not get a feel for my case in the allotted time. With Cameron Fernandez he dedicated an entire hour, listened to me, without interruption and his full attention on me. He looked over all the court documents I brought with me, Asked questions relevant to my child custody case. During my consultation I felt Cameron was very honest with me. He did not pressure me to hire him, he even recommended other attorneys he felt would be good for my case, if I felt he was not the attorney for me. Hiring Cameron Fernandez was the best decision I made! His entire firm from Justin Arnold to Rob Sullivan are professional, honest and most importantly fight for you! I had the pleasure and privilege to work with both of them as well. Every time they showed in court ready to fight for me. Cameron Fernandez was quick to get up to speed on my case. Cameron Fernandez has great rapport with the judges here in town and is greatly respected by his peers. Cameron knows family law inside and out, understood my desires as a father and diplomatically laid out possible options/outcomes/remedies. Cameron was relentless and fought diligently for me objecting and deflating the opposing side baseless accusations, while always maintaining the voice of reason with my best interest in mind. He fought fiercely for me. In the end he was able to get all that I asked for. Having Cameron and his firm in my corner was a blessing. If you’re a parent with you back against the wall, limited by your court order do your kids and self a favor and hire Cameron Fernandez.

Grateful for Fernandez Family Law
When Cameron was first recommended to me several years ago my children and I were facing seemingly insurmountable odds. The overwhelming chaos that a bitter divorce with an uncooperative ex created was a constant source of anxiety. It defies reason that I would have found a sense of peace, resolution, and security in an attorney's office but that was indeed the case. With his rare combination of calming rationale and sharp intellect Cameron managed to sort through the mess of questions, paperwork, and emotional turmoil that I brought to him. With what seemed to be a natural ease Cameron navigated the complicated maze of family court, time and again exceeding my expectations. So unparalleled were his abilities that my ex went through two attorneys before finally representing himself in an unsuccessful attempt to attain Cameron's remarkable support and custodial results. In addition to the expert management of our legal affairs Cameron was continuously mindful of the emotional well being of my children and offered incomparable advice along the way that helped me to better understand and meet their needs. In a surprisingly short period of time we were able to return to focusing on the important things in life and began to once again make memories worth remembering. Over the years I have periodically returned to his offices for assistance with related issus, always with exceptional and lasting results. I can say without a doubt that Cameron's representation helped propel us out of chaos and onto a clearly laid path to success. As I look at my children, now preparing for university with joy, optimism, and well rounded perspectives, I cannot help but be thankful for Fernandez Family Law.

Excellent Representation
Cameron was attentive in gathering information for our trial, proved to be well-organized and methodical during preparation, and communicated effectively (in a language we could understand) throughout the duration of our custody battle. His consultation and availability always left us with the sense that we were in control, and in following his advice, Cameron meticulously ensured our success. During a time where fear and dread can cloud one's personal judgment, you need a guy like this in your corner. He is a consummate professional. Would I recommend Cameron? 110%!
