A greatful father that got to keep his children
Candace is a excellent lawyer with a great staff that support her and her clients. When I first came to her I knew nothing about divorce or what I was getting ready to do. I explained to her my situation and that my first priority was protecting my children. She did not sugar coat anything. She explained the cost and how long this could take with this being a hostile divorce. She was spot on in the end with cost and time. She was very responsive always took my calls if she could or returned them quickly and the same with emails. When going through this kind of divorce you need to deal with lots of different people from therapists to investigators and real estate people and everyone in between. She knows them all and helps you find the right one for your case. When you start learning about divorce law in NJ it can make you very angry especially if you are the main earner in the house. Candace was very good at letting me vent my frustration with the law. Then she would calm me down and explain carefully to me what I need to do within the law to get through this divorce. It was kind of funny looking back at some of the simple things she did that got me through this. While meeting with a mediator she could hear in my voice or see my posture change and she would grab hand and give it a lite squeeze basically getting me to be quite before I said something I would regret. She came through for me and I got to keep my boys and as a bonus I got to keep the house. She worked with me the whole way through in all aspects of the divorce. Thank you very much Candace
