Well-Prepared at All Times
In my practice, I strive to be well-prepared at all times and in all aspects of each case. My goal is to ensure that each client understands all potential outcomes and the likelihood of certain results, whether the client chooses to let the courts handle their matter or resolve the matter outside of court. I do this so that my clients are well-prepared to move forward in their lives once this part of their life is over.

Not only did she help give me the strength to get through that incredibly hard period, but she fought and fought hard.
Without going into a great deal of personal detail. Going through a very rough period in my my ex attempted to take full custody of our daughter. Candace was amazing when I met her I was unsure and low and n faith and she was strong, a fighter. Not only did she help give me the strength to get through that incredibly hard period but she fought and fought hard. In the end she achieved the outcome I was hoping for. Candace is bright, personable and tenacious. I think the quote “and tho she be but little, she is fierce” aptly fits her. I would highly recommend her.
