Matter concerning eliminating alimony
Review for Daniel McCammon at Fernandez Family Law , Orange County California I began working with Daniel and his team in 2021 as I retired and had been paying alimony for over 21 years. My ex-wife and I were divorced in California in 2001 but neither of us currently live in California. After researching and talking to Daniel the process to reduce or eliminate my alimony would have to be completed in California. The divorce and issues surrounding my ex-wife and our adult son were unique which created some challenges, but Daniel and his team were able to work with her attorney and after going back and forth on several potential settlements including working with attorneys in a different state, Daniel was able to have my alimony eliminated at the end of 2022. The professionalism that Fernandez Law demonstrated through the entire process which took over a year to resolve was amazing and again Daniel stayed on top of all the issues, was able to counter any concerns my ex-wife’s attorney brought up and again at the end the alimony was eliminated. I would highly recommend Daniel and this law firm for any representation relating to resolving a divorce issue or going into a divorce to ensure that you are well represented and protected for the future.

Your New Favorite Lawyer
If you're looking for a family lawyer to assist you in your darkest times, Daniel is the one. Not only is he so kind, but also incredibly knowledgable and a true professional. I retained him for my restraining order case and he was very responsive and constantly followed up. Once my case was over, I retained him yet again for my Divorce. He's THAT good. Daniel has many years of experience with family law and is not only knowledgable with family law in Orange County, but also worked in family law for Riverside County. And bonus, he is bilingual. He completely surprised me. He can speak perfect Spanish which was incredibly helpful as h was able to communicate with my Spanish speaking mother. I highly recommend Daniel and his firm. You truly get a quality experience.

Thankful for Daniel McCammon!
When I found Daniel McCammon, I had already looked at several other attorneys in my area. I was having a child custody battle and did not know what legal actions to take what so ever. From the first conversation, he had a positive attitude and was extremely helpful from then on throughout my entire case. He was always thoroughly explaining every option available for me and information he would receive for my case. He was very timely on filing with the courts an made sure we were always fighting for that extra step ahead. Him and his team worked very hard on my case and I could see it after every option I went with. I am very happy to say my case is now settled and I am able to go on in peace knowing I have Daniel McCammon in my corner.

Great!
From the first conversation I had with Daniel I knew I had the right guy. He is confident, knowledgeable and comforting all at the same time. He always had insight to any of my concerns. He and his team were very thorough and pushed me to be the same. He always made sure we were ahead of the game. He always made sure we had all information and then some. He and his team were always on top of and timely with signatures and documents. The presentation for my court order was excellent. He really knew how to execute my ideas and words and build a strong case with the important information. He pushed for opposing information and was very clear on what was either true and/or relevant to the case. He really took the time to understand my situation. He did a great job negotiating with the the opposing lawyer and ultimately created the strongest solution I could hope for before the judge could even be involved. Ultimately the stipulation agreement we came to was the best case scenario in all accounts. It was worth every penny.

Amazing Lawyer!
I came to this law firm with a previous case that my attorney Daniel McCammon had previously been working while he was at another firm. Daniel has always from the very beginning been a very professional down to earth attorney that has laid all the scenarios and possible outcomes out and consistently kept me informed and updated on my very difficult and challenging case. This case had several challenges, difficulties and setbacks that Daniel handled with professionalism and empathy and compassion and helped my 2 year long case finally reach a very satisfied conclusion. I would highly recommend Daniel McCammon as an attorney! His knowledge of the laws and his no yield negotiation skills made my difficult case easier for me to bear.

Divorce
When I filed for divorce and child visitation I believed I could come to agreements with my ex, but as the case moved forward she hired an attorney. I was overwhelmed with all the paper work they wanted me to file, as soon as I met Mr. McCammon he listened to what I had to say and wanted to take up my case. I decided to hire the law firm and Mr. McCammon immediately began to work on the documents my ex attorney was requesting, and as the case progressed tensions were growing higher and thanks to not only being my attorney he offered advice that was of great help. I appreciate Mr. McCammon not only did he help me in a troubling time in my life, but got the results that I wanted.

Strong Representation
I found myself facing a contempt case filed by my child’s father after 4 years custody battle and I needed to find an attorney that was fair, strong, professional, and most importantly, compassionately human. I found all these characteristics in Mr. Daniel McCammon who was assigned to me by the law firm he works for Holstrom Block and Parke, one of the most prestigious and aggressive law firms. Right from our initial consultation, I knew Mr. McCammon was the right attorney for me. He listened attentively, asked good questions, and really made me feel at ease. I didn't want someone who was egotistical or vengeful. I needed someone that would immerse themselves in my particular situation and case, and diligently follow through. Not to mention someone that exhibits extreme intelligence, knowledge, and experience. Throughout the process, I was always kept updated and informed about the proceedings and what to expect next. I found Mr. McCammon and his capable staff especially Miss Margo Emil to be readily accessible and responsive to any of my needs and inquiries. His administrative and professional staff demonstrated the upmost professionalism and courtesy. Although my case became much more involved and drawn out than I would have ever expected, I was relieved and so thankful to have Mr. McCammon as my representative and advocate. I truly enjoyed working with him, and was quite pleased with the resolution and outcome. We hit a Home Run Today! And if you win it says all about your attorney. Mr. McCammons fees and billings were also extremely fair, considering I was facing a contempt case, and he had the whole team on board, literarily! I would highly recommend Mr. Daniel McCammon from Holstrom Block and Parke law firm to anyone seeking one of the most top-notched attorneys in Riverside or San Bernardino counties.

Excellent outcome to my visitation/child support case
Having to hire a lawyer out of state to represent myself while I reside in GA, Mr. McCammon showed high involvement with my case through constant communication. Mr. McCammon was very informative throughout my case and in the end my visitation and child support cases were successful in what I wanted the end state to be. Even after the case he still shows interest in how everything is going with the matter at hand and that if there are any other services that he may provide. Would definably recommend to hire to help with your case.

Great representation
Daniel was able to get my case dismissed in California and keep it in Missouri as it should be! He is a smart attorney that knew the right strategy to win our case. One of the reasons I would recommend Daniel is his honesty. He would shoot me straight always, even if it were something bad he would at least let me know the potential of what “could” be in the opposing parties favor. And for that he had my trust. He knew the law, he worked diligently with my other attorney in Missouri and they build a strategy that couldn’t be beat!

Not only a great attorney but also a compassionate Gentleman
I was in a unique situation with the court when I reached out to Attorney Daniel C. McCammon. My wife and I had already had our judgement entered and signed by the judge. During the time prior to expiration of time and final divorce being permanent, we were able to reconcile through counselling. With only weeks from the divorce date, Hemet Court told me I would not be able to cancel the case in time and that the child custody, support (spousal and child), division of property and the entire judgement was inevitable. I was calling around in a panic and no attorney wanted to take the case because they didn't think (they obviously didn't know) how to successfully make this happen. After calling and speaking with the paralegal for the consult, she also was not sure if the case would be possible, but she took the time to speak with an attorney (Daniel McCammon), who then got on the phone with me. I again explained the situation and he told me that in 200 years of combined experience at the firm, this would be the first time they would handle the cancellation of a divorce after entered judgement signed by a judge, but prior to final divorce date. He was very compassionate and even told me, "In this family law business we are always looked at as the bad guy by one side or the other. I would be honored to be a part of fighting to actually save a marriage". Attorney McCammon told me how time was of the essence and the filings would have to be done ASAP. He was able to get an ex-parte hearing which was able to be put on calendar the very next day. The paperwork that he wrote up in defense of our marriage and explanation of request to set aside judgement and dismiss the case was very well thought out and explained to us in detail. He also took the time to explain to both of us, what exactly this dismissal meant, and the legal implications (basically starting from scratch) if we were not 100% on our decision. He did it!! Within 10 days from my initial call, the entire judgement was set aside and the case was dismissed. Attorney McCammon then took an extra step and shared with me some personal information and testified how happy he was to save a marriage rather than get a judgement to end one. The communication, professionalism and compassion in my case was second to none. My brother is a corporate law attorney and in my profession I have also dealt with many attorneys on both sides of the criminal, family and civil law. Hands down I recommend Holstrom, Block & Parke; and even more specifically Daniel C. McCammon. Thank you!!

Finally A Lawyer worth the money!!
I recieved a phone call from my Ex’s Lawyer and they informed me I was to be in court 2 days later. When I reviewed what she had filed it was laced with hearsay and false allegations that if they were true would have ripped my children from my life and step children. I have hired a laywer before and talked to 3 other lawyers before calling Holstrom Block and Parke. Their staff was friendly, very professional and actually listened to me when I talked with them. Daniel McCommon contacted me within an hour and I consulted with him. I hired him the same day. He was very knowledgeable in the court room and due to the nature of the allegations the judge made temporary orders that made life difficult because my wife was not allowed to be alone with my kids and I had to find someone to supervise her on our time. The case was taken to trial that ended up being on 2 separate days. His aggressive tactics, knowledge, and knowledge of the San Bernardino Court system was no match for the opposing counsel. Although I was only asking for the orders to stay the way they were before these hearings, he ultimately got the judge to drop the temporary orders and had a few minor changes that did not impact my time share, my wife or my step children. He his a good Family Lawyer And if I ever have another child custody issue I will hire him again. We are very happy that we hired Mr. McCammon and will recommend him to anyone who asks me for a lawyer. He helped bring our family back together so that we could go on with our life as a normal family.

Very easy to work with, aggressive!
I hired Daniel in May after being served with a domestic violence restraining order. He listened to my story, and helped me aggressively fight the restraining order. It was dismissed at the first hearing, and I went from no custody, only having supervised visitation and a request for me to pay child support, to joint physical and legal custody of my kids, including my stepdaughter whom I have not yet adopted, with equal time and no child support payments. Daniel is familiar with "presumptive parent" and is a real expert in divorce and child custody. Daniel and his staff are always accessible via phone or email, which is important when things can change quickly. His aggressive tactics, and his willingness to be real, ultimately led to my wife and I reconciling, and the divorce being dismissed. I can't thank Daniel enough, and have recommended him to friends who are looking for an aggressive family law attorney.

Phenomenal representation
Hired Daniel to navigate a messy divorce. Was great at communicating with me and letting me know where I stood at all times. When I appeared in court, I could instantly tell that I he had credibility with the Judge and opposing counsel. Was assertive and I got what I needed to move on with my life. Will refer him any family or friend member.

Great representation on restraining order case
Was very happy with the way Daniel McCammon handled my case. Defended me in a restraining order case and was able to attack the credibility of my ex-wife's false claims against me. Would use him again if I needed any legal help. Was also responsive, answered all my questions, and gave me faith in the legal system again.

Grateful FL client
Words will never be able to adequately express my gratitude for the work that Daniel has done on my behalf. He represented me in what should have been a simple divorce; short marriage, no children, no debts. It was not simple at all. Because the other party filed first in CA, and I moved to FL, and because of both the FL the CA divorce statutes and process, I was put on an immediate disadvantage. With no cooperation from the other party, I contacted several FL and CA attorneys. The day I spoke to Daniel I had spoken to 5 attorneys. When he called me for the initial consultation, he had already gone on-line to review the status of the case. He was the only attorney that took the time to do this, and although this may appear like a small act, it showed the degree of investment that Daniel has for his work and for his clients… and I wasn’t even his client yet. Every step of the way, I was kept informed of everything, what is outstanding, different options, cost, etc. I was 2600 miles away with no control over the situation, and yet, I never felt detached from the case. I never felt helpless, and that is a testament to Daniel's work. There were so many calls and emails even late at night. I always knew what was going on. Nothing was sugar coated or understated. He always gave me the facts. In the end, he was able to settle and finalize the divorce to my advantage. In addition to the work ethic, integrity, and an extraordinary high level of competence, Daniel is a kind person. Finding an attorney that had both the competence and the demeanor and who was able to assist me in a long, difficult, and frustrating divorce, was nothing short of a gift… he earned my trust from day one, and earned both mine and my fiancé’s gratitude for life… what else can I say… words can say so little when he has done so much… JP

Takes the time and cares
Daniel is an attorney that gives time and input and cares about the family and what the impact of the outcome will be to the family. He isn't afraid to stand up for what is right but gives advice and perspective to make sure we understand all perspectives and have thought each aspect fully. Thank you Daniel for being not only a good attorney but a good person.
