"I think the foremost quality--there's no success without it--is really loving what you do. If you love it, you do it well, and there's no success if you don't do well what you're working at." - Malcolm Forbes

Candace walked me through the process of divorce and child custody advising me on things that I had not considered. She helped me to protect my children and their best interests.- Gretchen
"Ms. Collins was very helpful during my custody hearing. It was not about the money for her; instead, it was about doing what was right for my child and me."
She was fair, open, and honest. She informed me of my rights as well as the rights of my ex-husband. She was not out for blood, but just out for what my child and I were entitled to.- Vanetta J.
