I can't say enough good things about Candace. She was an answer to prayer in my life at a time when I so needed her professionalism, expertise, honesty, compassion, and knowledge. I would highly recommend her in any situation, especially with protective orders and domestive violence issues. I've worked with attorneys before in the past and was amazed at her dedication to getting the job done quickly at short notice. At trial, an A+++. Without her intervention in such a short time, I'm not sure I would be here to type this. Given any other legal issue, she will be the first one I would retain. At a time of confusion and intense stress, she and her office paralegal, made me feel very confortable and that I could trust her with her expertise in a timely manner, and she demonstrated expertise in the courtroom as well. If you want the best, Candace and her staff will deliver.

Ms. Williams handled my Modification of Custody case this year based on a move. Ms. Williams was responsive within 24 hours to my inquiries, professional, understanding of the emotion, detailed, realistic of the outcome, and very strong in Court. We were successful in defeating the claim and on the contempt. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a family law matter. Thank you Candace and her Staff at Coleman and Chambers, LLP, Maresa, and Gina.

Here is the letter I sent to this attorney:
"We needed someone that would listen to our case and take it as seriously as we did and work for us with diligence. I cannot thank you enough for what you and your staff (Maresa and Gina) did for us. Candace, you listened to us every step of the way and guided us in the appropriate direction. The communication was always clear, concise and timely and your attentiveness and responsiveness was evident in your documentation to the other side as well as your communication with us. Even though we were out of town, the distance did not matter because we were able to correspond effectively through phone and email.
Your perseverance and the careful time and planning were proven in our final outcome. You carefully selected the mediator and other professionals in our case based on your past experience. You predicted possible problems in the future and wrote language to circumvent those potential issues. Your excellent analytical skills and willingness to take the time to make sense of large volumes of information was key to our positive outcome. Your creativity and ability to find solutions and persistence with the other side’s counsel was another additional benefit for choosing you. I was equally impressed with your written skills and ability to produce compelling arguments to help the judge to understand our difficult case.
I would highly recommend you to anyone seeking family law help. I have never had a positive experience with an attorney until now. The quality of service we received from you and your staff saved us years of heartache and frustration. In our eyes, you are our hero and the go-to-gal of custody matters! Thank you Candace Williams and staff!

I endorse Candace Williams wholeheartedly. As a partner at her firm, I have seen her work all hours of the day and night for her clients. I have seen her take losing cases and turn them around and secure wonderful results that no one thought possible. She cares about her clients and is beloved by them in return. Even though Candace is extremely busy, her paralegals and associates ensure client contact is maintained at all times and that work is progressing forward at all times. Candace was an inspiring mentor to me when I first became an attorney and she continues to inspire others. If you want to feel that your family law attorney is knowledgeable, caring and honest, Candace Williams is the attorney for you!
