First Rate Family Law/Divorce Attorney
Candace is top notch. I was, unfortunately, involved in a very contentious and divorce. Her professionalism, advocacy, dedication and experience was first rate. She had to navigate through many roadblocks and situations and did so like a pro. Her responsiveness was above and beyond and her staff also handled everything with grace and speed. She went to bat for me and my family and helped me achieve my main goal. I will forever be thankful for Candace and what she accomplished for me and my children. Candace, thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you need the best...reach out to Candace at You will not be disappointed!

A true "Super Lawyer!"
My wife and I put quite a bit of thought into finding the right attorney to represent us in our quest to seek custody of our granddaughter after her mother (my wife's daughter) passed away. We looked into several lawyers and after reviewing her experience in family law, focus on the safety of children, client reviews, and being named a "Super Lawyer" in 2019 and 2020 we selected Candace Williams. Ms. Williams is a tireless advocate for her clients and one of the most dedicated professionals I've worked with. I remember on one occasion I was upset about an incident and sent a very long, detailed e-mail to Ms. Williams at 11 pm and went to bed. When I got up the next morning I noticed Ms. Williams had answered my e-mail at one o'clock in the morning, eloquently addressing all of my concerns. This is what you get when you hire Ms. Williams; a superior attorney with the drive and determination necessary to discover every tiny bit of evidence to support your case and organizes that evidence into a clear, concise briefing to ensure you have the best opportunity to win. Ms. Williams is a "bulldog" in the court room and has a certain "Perry Mason" way of questioning witnesses and won't rest until the judge has a all the facts in order to make an educated decision on your case. I highly recommend Candace Williams if you're in need of a family law attorney, she is the epitome of a professional "Super Lawyer!"
