Very disappointed with this office. Kevin was late to our very first hearing, so we didn’t get to talk about details. I had no idea what to expect having never done this before. I feel he was completely incompetent with the manner in which he counsels. I had to continually call the office to ask about my case. Twice I was given wrong dates for hearings. I feel a lot of the leg work was done by myself. I was told I did not have to be present during the last hearing, so I’m at work in the midst of COVID with patients dying, and who calls me, Kevin Ramey! I have to try and listen in on this hearing through his cell phone while working and then the judge wants to postpone, Kevin said nothing so I took control and got things done. Don’t waste your time or money with this office. It may have been better if Mr Ausman had been my lawyer, but I’m not so sure now. I was told by Tiffany they’ve had a large turnover recently and the billing is a mess. I keep receiving invoices, that were “stuck” in the invoices not to be billed. I have serious doubts about the competency level of this office. Tori Keen is the only competent and kind person working there. My case was over in January and I’m still fighting them about what I supposedly owe them. I sincerely wish I had gone to someone else, and I would never recommend this office to anyone.

The Law Offices of William Ausman has a wonderful staff of professionals who are compassionate, responsive, and dedicated. I highly recommend this firm for individuals needing legal assistance.

I have now used this office twice. Both times left a bad taste in my mouth. I would not suggest using them unless you want to do half of the work yourself. I consistently had to call in to find out what the progress was. Never did I get quality follow through. At the end of my case, they asked if I needed their services any longer and for my new address, to which i responded no an gave it to them. I assumed(my bad) that they would close out my account and send me a refund check for the remaining deposit not used. Incorrect! It took 3 months, several hasty phone calls, plenty of run around and excuses before they even told me the balance remaining. I then waited for the check, only to find out it was $200 less than I was told!! Subpar customer service, questionable knowledge of the law and lack of billing ability make this a 3 star at best review. Good luck to anyone already retaining them.

Bill is an outstanding attorney and a great guy. Highly recommended!

I just started working with The Law Offices of Williwm Ausman. What a great legal team.

Great paralegal attorney/instructors. They went above and beyond teaching and mentoring students throughout the tumultuous cross over to remote classes. Their thoroughness was exceptional. “Paralegal Class of 2021”. AHC

I Highly Recommend Mr. Wagner And Mrs. Bourbon And There Team For Anyone That's Going Through Or That's About To Go Through A Custody Battle. There Highly Trained In What They Do And They Put There Time And Effort Into Your Case And Get You What You Ask For Or Deserve. There Very Personal, Compassionate,Trustworthy, Informative, And Detailed Oriented. They Fight Aggressively Till The End And For That They Will Always Be My Go To Attorney Cause I Know They Will Bat For Me If I Ever Need Them Again. Thank You Guys For Everything You Did!!!

Stephen Wagner has been our attorney since 2017. We have unfortunately been to court many times for different reasons/circumstances, so it’s be a roller coaster of a family law/custody case. Since day one when my husband and I retained him, he has been honest and forthcoming about what to expect and how to handle any and all situations that have arisen. He has been loyal to us and our daughter on our journey to ensuring what is best for her. We lost our first move away request, but Stephen still made sure to fight for the best custody/visitation for our daughter. We recently filed for another move away, and won with the help of Stephen and his staff. Brian and Marina have assisted him on all of our RFOs and court appearances, and never once did they leave us disappointed- always very thorough, professional, and understanding! And let’s be real.. custody cases can bring out so many different emotions, but they have always addressed my concerns with empathy and respect, even when I might have been a tad emotional haha! The only “complaint,” I have (if you can even call it a complaint) is that Stephen has a heavy caseload and is consequently very busy! So, don’t expect to be able to call the office and speak to him immediately. However, once you are able to meet with him in-person or over the phone, he is sure to be very thorough and address all of your concerns to the best of his ability! I have recommended him to so many people, and will continue to do so!

I was in quite the position. I was advised on what actionable steps to take, and encouraged to do it quickly. I was able to get 50% custody which is all I've ever wanted. Thank you for helping me be in my children's lives to the greatest extent possible.

I want to say our experience was nothing normal because we where in the middle of COVID. But that didn't stop the amazing job they did! Thank you!

I am incredibly thankful for Mr. Fernandez's time and attention. He navigated the intricacies of my case flawlessly and has a superior understanding of all legal matters. Mr. Fernandez and his staff are professional, polite, and supportive under all circumstances. They offered the best legal advice and explained all perspectives. Priceless representation. I feel blessed to have been his client.

It was one of the worst experiences I've ever had with an attorney. I paid him over ten thousand dollars for lousy representation. Not to mention my ex wife had no case, because she wasn't even their mother. The whole thing should have and could have been resolved in a couple hours, but Cameron chose to drag it out for the big pay day. In my opinion this guy was a complete douche bag!!!

The worst attorney I've ever come in contact with, this attorney is scum of the earth makes fun of children calls them fat if it benefits him, he is sneaky, greedy and dirty stay away.... I don't know he sleeps at night!

I am happy to say Carmen Kalashian has recently helped change my life. I have been dealing with a very difficult custody situation for the past three years. When I saw the opportunity to get better custody of my daughter, I knew I would need help. Carmen Kalashian successfully helped me in a difficult custody situation. Carmen is prompt, detailed, professional and really is an attorney with teeth. She is great at her job and does not sacrifice honesty. Carmen is everything good you want in an Attorney. Great experience, great service. Wouldn’t expect anything less from Veteran.

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.

Before retaining Marcus Morales, I had a pretty prominent local attorney that didn't give me much hope & tried to convince me to sign into a mediation that would put my little daughter in quite a shocking situation. Marcus Morales and Mollyanne are such an intelligent, confident and reliable team that I never had to worry about being forced into an uncomfortable situation. They are there for you pretty much 24/7 if need be! I am so pleased with the immense work they have done for me and especially the positive outcome that came from solid dedication on their part! Thank you again Morales Law =)

Marcus and his law firm are currently handling my divorce case. I’m very glad to have chosen them, they are handling my case with extremely care and dedication. Marcus, Hana and Allyson are very profesional and talented. They understand the priorities and the minor details of my case which involves a minor. They are fully advocating for my daughter, fighting for her stability and safety, getting successful results.

Morales Law, particularly Marcus Morales himself, is an excellent attorney. I came to Mr. Morales with a difficult case and knew nothing about family court or how to navigate the complex process. I was so grateful that Mr. Morales and his staff, were all there to help and support me. Mr. Morales is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and strategic, while providing transparency, and being cautious not to "sugar coat" situations so that my expectations were unrealistic. In the end, I could not have been happier with the outcome. I am quite certain that there is no other attorney that will work as hard and as diligently as Mr. Morales. He went above and beyond for my case and I know he gives that same attention to every client. I highly recommend!

Marcus Morales and his team are strong and smart advocates for their clients. They listen, get to the heart of the matter, and work hard for a positive outcome. I went to Marcus over a year ago with a complex guardianship case that was about to be heard in court and settled when the pandemic hit. Marcus and his team switched seamlessly to online communication along with phone calls and texts. I always felt well taken care of and even though the case took longer than any of us anticipated due to family court closures, Marcus secured a good settlement for me for which I am very grateful. He, Mollyanne, and Hana are all caring people who somehow make the time to listen and help offer different ideas to make one's life in the limbo before a hearing bearable. He "keeps it real" but gives you hope when all seems hopeless--he and his team are just that good! Marcus and his team are awesome! So, if you want a tough, strong, smart and caring advocate, Marcus Morales and his team are the lawyers for you!

I'm so glad I chose Morales Law to handle my divorce! Everyone at Morales Law were very helpful. Always courteous respectful and professional. Marcus is amazing. Very knowledgeable and extremely confident.

I am beyond grateful I chose Bobby Cloud as my attorney when I decided to go back to court. Mr. Cloud made sure my voice was heard, and I am now able to enjoy my sons on the weekend. Now the weekends are equal, and my sons cannot go out of state without my permission or a court order. Everything he said I could ask for I received. He made sure I knew what was reasonable and what was not. Mr. Cloud and Lorena were great and made this process so much better!! Thank You Both!!!

Thanks Bobby! Talk about honest and professional. I called with an issue that I wasn't sure how to go about and Bobby was very honest in letting me know that I didn't need an attorney for what I was trying to accomplish. He definitely had my best interest at heart because not only did he refer to someone that could help me but also saved me a hefty chunk of money. Highly recommend .

Great attorney. Helped us get supervised visitations for the other party for the safety of our child. Something that I feel is hard since courts rarely take full custody away from the mothers. Price was reasonable. I called around many attorneys didn’t even want to bother since the case was and Shafter. The ones that were willing to take the case wanted to charge double of what Bobby Cloud charged us. Happy that we choose Bobby Cloud. Plus we loved his red suspenders!

I just wanted to say Bobby and my paralegal Lacinea help me through this process very smoothly from start to finish... soon as i jumped on board they had gears moving and my children were with me do to certain circumstances that was cought by Bobby and his team...and won coustody shortly after..Big thank u to Bobby and his team God bless

After reading other reviews on this thread, I CAN NOT understand how Bobby Cloud Law could get anything but 5 stars! Those other people are wrong!! Getting divorced is probably the hardest thing you will ever have go through! This lawyer is professional and has your back throughout the entire process. There wasn’t a single time I didn’t feel like I wasn’t at the top of his priority list! Yeah, this stuff is hard and emotional, but Bobby always made me feel like he was there for me and me alone! I sat in those court rooms many times waiting for my turn and there wasn’t a single other lawyer I would have trusted after watching them fumble their cases! You want to win?!? You want to keep your dignity during a time when you are at your lowest place?!? Stop wasting your time with others, call his office and schedule a consultation. Sure.....It costs money to retain a lawyer, but this is the only place you will feel like your money was well spent when it’s over!! I will recommend Bobby Cloud Law over and over without hesitation! Thank you Bobby for all that you have done!

    I am beyond grateful I chose Bobby Cloud as my attorney when I decided to go back to court. Mr. Cloud made sure my voice was heard, and I am now able to enjoy my sons on the weekend. Now the weekends are equal, and my sons cannot go out of state without my permission or a court order. Everything he said I could ask for I received. He made sure I knew what was reasonable and what was not. Mr. Cloud and Lorena were great and made this process so much better!! Thank You Both!!!

    Thanks Bobby! Talk about honest and professional. I called with an issue that I wasn't sure how to go about and Bobby was very honest in letting me know that I didn't need an attorney for what I was trying to accomplish. He definitely had my best interest at heart because not only did he refer to someone that could help me but also saved me a hefty chunk of money. Highly recommend .

    Great attorney. Helped us get supervised visitations for the other party for the safety of our child. Something that I feel is hard since courts rarely take full custody away from the mothers. Price was reasonable. I called around many attorneys didn’t even want to bother since the case was and Shafter. The ones that were willing to take the case wanted to charge double of what Bobby Cloud charged us. Happy that we choose Bobby Cloud. Plus we loved his red suspenders!

    After reading other reviews on this thread, I CAN NOT understand how Bobby Cloud Law could get anything but 5 stars! Those other people are wrong!! Getting divorced is probably the hardest thing you will ever have go through! This lawyer is professional and has your back throughout the entire process. There wasn’t a single time I didn’t feel like I wasn’t at the top of his priority list! Yeah, this stuff is hard and emotional, but Bobby always made me feel like he was there for me and me alone! I sat in those court rooms many times waiting for my turn and there wasn’t a single other lawyer I would have trusted after watching them fumble their cases! You want to win?!? You want to keep your dignity during a time when you are at your lowest place?!? Stop wasting your time with others, call his office and schedule a consultation.

Azemika and Azemika law firm was there for me when I need it help with child custody battle. They were amazing at explaining every step of the process and answering every question I had. Made a difficult situation something easy and painless. Anthony is very knowledgeable at what he does. I am glad they were by my side. Thank you again to the Azemika team for everything you guys did for me.

Nick Azemika helped me with my divorce. He was attentive to my questions, he gave me great advice and made the whole process much easier. His whole staff are helpful and professional as well. I would highly recommend this law firm.

As I look back at the initial stress and anxiety brought about by the divorce journey, I now stand grateful and relieved to have had Nick Azemika’ professional and reliable office by my side. Mr. Azemika’s vast experience combined with his ease at navigating the system simply smoothed out the process for me. Were it not for his reliable and proven approach, my divorce settlement could have a mess. I highly recommend Nick And his tremendous staff.

Love Tony and the staff. If you are looking for a firm that doesn't take any bs and works hard for you look no further. My experience while long was always easy and understandable. Tony and staff always had answers for me where I had questions. Thank you for everything. We are grateful.

I’ve referred Nick to many other people in my life dealing with the same things I was going through with divorce and he kept me updated and got me what I asked for. I feel bad for everyone that has to start off with other attorneys only to still end up with nick or his brother in the end. Divorce/ separation is already hard enough as it is, do yourself a favor and go straight to Nick! I guarantee you will save yourself time and money! Full disclosure divorce is never cheap/affordable but save yourself the cost of hiring other attorneys just to still end up with Nick

When I first got divorced I didn't do the research on divorce attorneys that I should have and I paid the price in court. Two years later I needed to go back to court and this time I did the work to find out what office would be the best to help me. Mr. Bruder and especially his paralegals went above and beyond for me and my children. I could not be happier with the outcome and would recommend their office to anyone.

Mr. Bruder and his staff have helped me every step of the way. For over 5 years I was involved in a very ugly divorce. It involved a lot of pieces. Threw the whole process they never misled me or forgot to mention key factors. It was my story but they knew it just as well as I did. Mr. Bruder always is poignant and to the point in court. The judges respect him and listen. He and his staff take the extra time to make sure I understood the process and the next steps. I would highly recommend Mr. Bruder and his staff.

Vanessa was great, and the entire office was always willing to work with me. Mr Bruder went out of his way to explain what my rights were. Vanessa went out of her way to make me fell like I was a good person, even though the other partner in the matter made it seem like I wasn't. Thank you

Attorney Dale Bruder represented me in a challenging family law case. He and Irene were incredibly well prepared every step of the way. They were attentive, and always available to me throughout the process. He is honest, ethical, and assertive. I am thankful for his service and highly recommend.

Attorney Dale Bruder represented me for for a little over year. Mr. Bruder and staff did an amazing job representing me through the court case. The staff is friendly and I was guided through the whole process. I felt relief that I didn’t have to go through the case by my self. I am extremely satisfied with the services I received as a client I would recommend the Law Office of Dale Bruder to any one needing legal services.

He answered the phone himself and took the time to give me a complementary, quick consultation. His honestly about my situation was much appreciated. I only took off a star because I couldn't afford to hire him, so I don't know what the outcome would have been like but he does appear to be very knowledgeable and straight forward. Thank you, Mr. Bartlett!

Couldn't be happier with my experience. Mr. Barlett answered every question I had with patience and expertise. I came in with no clue how to manage my particular situation and he carefully described what my options were. He broke down exactly what I'm looking at in terms I can understand and explained the best plan to move forward. I would absolutely return for any future needs I may have down the line.

Bob Bartlett in my opinion is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and brilliant attorneys in the State of California. A man of great character.

This attorney was exceptional for me , consistent and quite reliable when he didn't have to . Good man !

Bob is one of the most down-to-earth lawyers I've ever worked with. Can't recommend him enough!

I hired Maria, shes a paralegal there at the office, and she was very patient with me and handled everything quickly. She was very sweet to my daughter and I. I'd highly recommend going to her or any of the lawyers there at the office. Very warm environment, I'll definitely be back with any future needs.

I hired Ms. Mattos after consulting with several other attorneys. I am in a same sex marriage which Ms. Mattos had never handled. She assured me she could handle it however. Not only did she handle my case, I came out the winner on almost every issue. She is a no nonsense attorney who had to calm me down several times and it paid off. Her demeanor in court is calm and cool. While I witnessed other attorneys getting agitated, Ms. Mattos always stayed calm and it always paid off. I would hire her again for any matter. Also, her office staff is really friendly and informative, often answering your questions at a lower rate to save you money. Thank you Ms. Mattos and Belin for a job well done!

If you're looking for someone who knows all the in's and out's with your divorce Ms. Mattos and her team meets that expectation. I'm really happy you help me through it all and very very pleased with your hard work. I will pass you guys on to anyone needing a noble lawyer.

A close family friend gave me a helpful recommendation for this firm. Based on that, I expected competent representation. I received that, and more.

She is in it for the money not for her clients at the beginning she plays you like your case is easy and you will most likely not even use the total retainer . Lie dont fall for it. Then she even helped the x referring a attorney for her. Trust me dont hire her.
