About Candace

Learn Candace’s areas of practice.

Where Our Firm Began

Lead attorney, Candace E. Rader, was inspired to get into law by her father, who was a practicing attorney for more than 60 years. Accepted to practice law by the Georgia Bar in 1989, Ms. Rader has aggressively and successfully handled hundreds of cases involving a variety of family law and criminal defense issues.

When Ms. Rader came to Carrollton, there were no full-time female trial lawyers in town. So, in 1995, she established her law firm, Candace E. Rader, P.C., which has been serving residents throughout Carroll County and West Georgia for more than 20 years. She believes strongly in fighting for her clients and honoring the principles our founding fathers established.

We believe in always providing prompt and friendly service that delves deeply into your legal issue from the very beginning. We will then stay with you through the entire process, making sure your outcome is the best one for your situation.
Though we are tenacious in the courtroom, we offer a relaxed yet professional atmosphere at our law office in Carrollton. We take the time to listen to your circumstances, while helping you understand your options and the steps you need to take to get to a successful resolution. Lead attorney Candace E. Rader may wear her heart on her sleeve during her meetings with you, but you will always leave your consultations knowing she cares about you and is fighting for the best possible outcome for you and your family. Upon entering the office you may be greeted by two cats and a friendly chocolate lab.

Ms Rader did an excellent job in my defense. I could not have hired a better attorney. The best around. She and her staff were hardworking and thorough and fought every inch to defend me. She kept me informed about everything going on with my case. I highly recommend Ms. Rader.

Wonderful experience, knowledgeable and responsive! Consummate legal professional!!!
I hired Ms. Rader after having a very passive attorney. I didn't feel that that attorney was aggressive and really fighting for me or my interest. Another attorney in my town gave me Candace Rader and it was the best referral EVER!!! She is aggressive and fights very hard for her clients. I love her direct approach and her no non-sense attitude. She has made a very bad situation much better. It had been months seeing my son despite paying child support and trying everything! She is the BEST and I would recommend her to anyone who wants the unadulterated truth!!!!

Did an excellent job for my son in a difficult case. This lady is a tough and careful attorney. Always returned phone calls promptly and handled herself perfectly in court, even with a cantankerous, stubborn judge. Did an amazing job to get case dismissed.

Excellent Criminal Attorney
Candace did a great job representing my father. She represented my father in a criminal case that involved very unseemly accusations. She stood up for the State and fought for him every step of the way. I would highly recommend her in any criminal matter.

Excellent Child Custody Attorney
Candace did a great job on custody case. The other side was represented by a very aggressive attorney but Candace helped the Court see through all the nonsense. Her pricing was straight forward and spelled out in a written contract. She was not the cheapest attorney but she was worth the price.

Helped me very much in my case.

Unprofessional and greedy attorney = a client's worst nightmare
I hired Candace for a divorce and custody case, and I quickly discovered the unprofessionalism with which she conducts her business. She unrelentingly bashed opposing attorneys, refused to speak with me over the phone at times, and - worst of all - prolonged my case and filed unnecessary orders so that she could pull more money out of my pocket when it was all said and done. If only I could go back and do it all again, I'd hire one of the many other competent attorneys in the West Georgia area.

Horrible Attorney!!!!!!!
Candace Radar is a terrible lawyer! She is unprofessional! She is complete disorganized and is always late! I have tried contacting her for two weeks now and still heard no answer. Something as simple as trying to set up court ordered mediation has taken her two months she prolongs everything and files orders to extend or lengthen the process when all you need is for her to communicate with you…her client! I will never hire her again!!!
