About me


Aaron Dishon is the founder and senior partner at Dishon & Block, a six-attorney matrimonial law firm with offices in Irvine and Century City, California. An authority in matters pertaining to divorce, custody, child and spousal support, paternity, business valuation, complex property division, as well as high net worth cases, Dishon serves as a Judge Pro Tem in the Los Angeles Superior Court and is an Orange County Young Executives Trustee.




A Certified Family Law Specialist by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, Dishon is a graduate of the American Bar Association Family Law Advocacy Institute.




A member of the Executive Board of the Marital Property Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Family Law, Dishon has also served on the editorial board of Divorce Magazine. A sought after lecturer, Dishon sits on numerous legal and custody conference panels.




In 2012, Aaron Dishon received an AV® Preeminent™ rating from Martindale-Hubbell. Awarded by attorneys and judges with personal knowledge of Dishon's case work and ethical standards, the stellar AV® Preeminent™ rating is the highest level attainable and a notable testament to Dishon’s level of professional excellence and respect in the industry. Dishon is rated “10” out of "10" by his former clients and peers on AVVO, an expert-only legal forum, for his consistent ability to successfully advise and address legal concerns.  In 2011 and 2012, Dishon was featured in OC Metro magazine as a “Top Attorney”, a merit distinguishing the preeminent lawyers in each category.




Dishon’s charitable activities include service for the Family Philanthropy committee of the Jewish Federation of Orange County and the board of the Solomon Society, a men's charitable organization. He is a member of Entrepreneurs Organization and Gen Next, membership organizations that connect, inform and engage executives and entrepreneurs in providing long-term solutions and support for future generations. Dishon also serves on the board of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Orange County and is actively engaged in supporting Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) and the Orangewood Children’s Foundation. Finally, Dishon served on the board of Kids First, an educational program designed to meet the specific needs of children whose parents are separated or divorced.




Dishon received his Bachelor of Arts, cum laude with the highest distinction, from the University of California, San Diego, in 1992 and earned his J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1995.
