  • Diane Carole Hurst McNamara

    I endorse this lawyer. I know Mr. Candiano through Avvo, where he responds to questions from injured workers across the nation. His answers are well thought out, insightful, and communicated with patience in simple, direct language. I often agree with him. Mr. Candiano is experienced in the field of workers' compensation. I also see from his website that he has experience on the defense side of the insurance industry, which is asset in this area of practice. I would recommend this attorney to anyone pursuing a claim for workers' compensation in the jurisdictions where he practices.
