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.

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!

I gave him a $20,000 retainer, though he did not ask for that much. He gave me excellent advice, settled my case and gave me most of my money back. he is an outstanding and honest lawyer. There are not many of them these days.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I went through a terrible divorce and needed a lawyer again to re-evaluate my child support. My last lawyer really did a horrible job and I was worried about hiring a new lawyer. I wasted a lot of money on her and was afraid of another bad experience. I so was impressed with his professionalism and sharpness. He reviewed my case and gave me the answers I wanted and needed. I hired immediately and have to say it was the best decision I have ever made. Cameron and his team did a solid job on reviewing the numbers. As a matter of fact, what Cameron told me what I was to receive in the beginning is exactly what we walked out of court with. When you need someone to trust, Cameron is the one to hire. I will use him again, and recommend to my friends and family.

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.
