Exhausting Divorce
Chandra and her team were always professional and extremely competent. Filings were always on time and I was kept in the loop throughout the divorce process. Fathers out there see my YELP review it is a must. The most important aspect of this process was that Chandra always put my children first making sure they were well protected and taken care of.

Holstrom,Block,& Parke
I would like to take this time to express my gratitude to Melanie Suba and Chandra Moss of Holstrom, Block, & Parke for taking on my case. Your experience and ability to convey all that was relative and then put all this together in a fair and equitable manner helped me enormously. This was a very difficult time for me and your help was vastly needed and for this I wish also to extend my thanks. An enormous problem was solved, due to all your professional expert support and service. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you. I will always be grateful to Ms. Robin De LaTorre for having recommended you Thank you, again, for taking on my case. For with you at the Helm, I withstood the gale that looked like a storm brewing.

What I needed
Chandra kept me informed, helped me understand the process and timelines and reassured me along the way. Divorce is an emotional roller coaster so it's critical that you have a good relationship with your attorney. I am exceptionally grateful to Chandra for her professionalism and kindness.

15 year ordeal over
After 15 years of futility I was introduced to Chandra Moss. Both Chandra and Robin did outstanding work on my case. Chandra took control of the case and immediately began driving it to a positive conclusion. She was always prepared, methodical and presented my case in a manner in which the court and other side was compelled to provide the outcome I had sought for many years.

Outstanding Family Law Firm
I am very glad that I retained the services of Holstrum, Block and Parke in Corona when I decided to go forward with a divorce. This was a 28 year marriage, with a good deal of wealth and property in the mix, along with a delusional spouse and plenty of other distractions. When I met Ms. Moss for the first time, she was professional, direct, honest and compassionate. Over the two years that it took to resolve the case, her team was well organized, gave me plenty of time and detailed instructions on the documentation that I needed to provide, and plenty of help on how to do it. The pre-trial preparation meeting was very well exercised, and would have been very helpful had we actually gone to trial. Ms. Moss and her team were always 100% behind me in every step of this endeavor, and I am eternally grateful to her and her firm for their outstanding and dedicated service. I highly recommend them for any family law matter. Her in-depth and innate knowledge of some very fine points of the law were instrumental in my getting a settlement with my wife that we both could ultimately live with.

Best lawyer I will ever have
Mrs. Chandra Moss first began to work on my case periodically from 2008 and became my primary attorney in 2011. At trial in late 2013, Mrs. Moss showcased her wealth of experience...and ensured that the court awarded in my favor the most important Orders. At this time, I cannot foresee any other lawyer who could match Mrs. Moss's professionalism, ethics and personal dedication and attention to her client. Unequivocally highly recommended!

Did a lot with a little
I have nothing but good to say. I had just retained Chandra and had a hearing 2 days later. She had no file or information to go off of besides what i could explain to her. With what she was given, she was able to still effectively argue my case which resulted in a judgement in my favor. She understood what thought process the judge was pursuing and was able to anticipate and counter it.

Chandra brought it....
As hard as the process of divorce can be, it always help to have the best attorney for the job. Chandra was professional and very knowledgeable not just on the legal aspects but more importantly for me, the financial side. With most divorces the client provides the info but the attorney needs to understand and translate that info appropriately and fairly into your case. Chandra did and I would recommend her to anyone who would ask me. Thank you Chandra.

The best Family Lawyer you could ever find
I couldn't have asked for a better, more professional and aggressive lawyer than Chandra Moss. Chandra is very trustworthy, responsible, dedicated, loving and will fight to the end for you. My case with my daughters Mom has been so difficult and stressful but once I hired Chandra as my lawyer everything suddenly took a change for the better. She will tell you like it is and will always give you great advice. I want to thank Chandra and the team for helping me accomplish my goal of getting more time with my daughter and allowing the court to see that I deserve to have fair rights and responsibilities as the mother has. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHANDRA TO THOSE WHO HAVE ANY FAMILY LEGAL PROBLEMS WHETHER IT BE CUSTODY, CHILD VISITATION, CHILD SUPPORT etc., CHANDRA MOSS IS THE WAY TO GO. Thanks again Chandra.

A Few Good Women
Chandra is compassionate, diligent, and an ethical human being. These individuals are a rare these days. In the past, Chandra has handled my case with integrity and tenacity. Most attorneys could care less, however Chandra balances her professional ethics with human qualities. Therefore, if you are looking for an excellent advocate, especially a female, then Chandra is your attorney.

Current client
Chandra is very knowledgeable about the law. She is thorough, trustworthy, hardworking, dedicated, efficient and very professional. I appreciate her honesty and personally I don't like to have"sugar coated" information and I really appreciated her telling it to me as it is but in an advisory way. Ultimately she is keeping my wishes in mind but giving me all the information of possible things that can happen. She will fight hard, very hard for you. She is so kind as a person in general as well as very patient and compassionate with me with my situation. She is aggressive for you in court because she has the law knowledge to back it up. I adore Chandra and couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. I personally find it interesting that she whips out sections of the law as the judge has to look it up in a book or a computer, that just shows how knowledgeable she is. Her law firm Holstrom, Sussing, Marks and Anderson in general have been nothing but professional. I did have one incident that was negative with a paralegal early on in the beginning of my case not the one working with Chandra and myself now (Cora ) is awesome too but when i brought it to their attention, Mr. Holstrom intervened immediately to rectify my concerns so fast that was so impressive and meeting Mr. Holstrom was so impressive too. He was so knowledgeable that I think he would only have the best of the best on his team which includes Chandra Moss. My case is still going, I don't know what the outcome will be but I know regardless Chandra was and is awesome and I am very impressed with Chandra. As far as her failing to do anything for me, I can't think of anything honestly, she is open to suggestions and hears me out. I am in a very weird situation with my case not Chandra's fault( not to get too specific) and I was nervous and scared and I needed to talk to Chandra. Chandra met with me I think it was that very next day to answer my questions and concerns and made me feel better. If you need an aggressive, knowledgeable, smart family law attorney I would definitely recommend Chandra Moss as well as that law firm.

Chandra Lynn Moss, Family Law Specialist
Finding a good family law attorney is like finding a needle in a haystack. They are as rare as diamonds. Chandra Moss is that diamond. Chandra Moss is a very gifted attorney with expansive knowledge of the law, building your case with meticulous, technical skill. Chandra is genuinely kind and provides comfort and compassion to those she represents. Despite her calmness, Chandra is a power house in the courtroom and judges are amazed with her ability to quote and intrepret legal codes and precedent cases backwards and forwards. Chandra represented my husband and me in two very difficult family law cases, both resulting in positive, successful outcomes. The entire support staff at Dishon & Block contributed to these big wins as they work closely as a team to ensure every detail is perfectly in place. We will never forget Chandra Moss as she has made such a life-changing contribution and difference in our family, particularly in the life and future of our child. Thank you, a million times, THANK YOU!!!

my experience
It was a long hard struggle in my divorce, Chandra did her BEST to get what was mine, because of delays from Respondent and opposing counsel things were difficult, yet Chandra always had a plan b, we finally we're sucessful, court went well and Respondent and were able to come to an agreement and a judgement was made. Chandra and her paralegal Robin are very knowledable.

Fairness not Included
I chose Holstrom, Block, & Parke, specifically Chandra Moss, because they touted themselves as men’s advocates in divorce cases. I felt relatively confident after sitting with Chandra during the initial interview that I could conclude my divorce in a timely and fair manner. The divorce was indeed handled more quickly than it was moving before her involvement, but I am convinced it was at the cost of fairness because my case did not “fit in the boxes” due to some extenuating circumstances she/they were either unable or unwilling to deal with. One example is that my ex-wife had been cohabitating with another during much of the proceedings even though I had been paying an agreed upon spousal support. She had perjured herself, though we had ample strong evidence to support the fact of cohabitation. Yet attorney Moss chose not to pursue this at any level and, at the very least, use the evidence as a viable negotiation tool! Secondly, I was paying half of what was considered a community debt (borrowed from her mother’s home for a failed business adventure) because I did not want her mother to lose her home. However, this was carried over she characterized the “community debt” (my name wasn’t even on the loan against her mother’s home) in the orders as “additional support”. The intent here was to make this payment tax deductible along with the rest of the spousal support, but the unintended consequence is that it can never be the subject of a bankruptcy action…something Chandra said at the time may be a strategy for later. Subsequently, the home has been sold at a substantial profit and, as the orders are written, I get no benefit (tax credit related to mortgage, a portion of proceeds, etc.) even though I was seeking no proceeds nor profit…only relief since the debtor has been paid in full. Chandra and team do not see fit to fight on my behalf! Finally, the standard Gavron clause was issued for my ex-wife in the orders, but again Chandra and team do not see fit to pursue that, either! My ex has done nothing of consequence to better her situation and is quite content with bleeding me (as she did for most of our marriage)! If you are a “cookie cutter” case I believe this team may serve you well. If not, and you have some unusual circumstances as I did/do, let’s just say her lawyer was better than mine!!
