 I am from Cuyahoga Falls OH, I went to Falls High and then Ohio Northern University because originally I wanted to be a Doctor to help people. My dad wanted me to be a lawyer because my family from Korea was in law, and he always wanted me to follow in their footsteps. I transferred home to Kent State and graduated with my B.S. in biology/ premed. I worked as a server, bartender, and a paramedic throughout my college years. Then one day I decided maybe I should try the law. I went to the University of Akron Law School and have never looked back. I truly enjoy being an attorney and I genuinely care for my clients. I may not be a doctor, but I know I am still helping people.

This was unreal
Well. My case didn't just get ruled in my favor. The opposing party literally agreed to a dismissal. I must say I am not surprised. I could tell when I met Candace she is a rising star in the legal community. She cared and was sharp as hell. I've never had an attorney that made me feel this confident. If you retain her you will understand. I was even intimidated by her confidence and lack of feeding me cheap lines to build trust on the case. She was on point. I literally am telling anyone who is considering retaining her....you will never feel a desire to use any other attorney for anything ever again. I just hope she is never on the opposing parties side in any case in my future.

Really can't tell you what a blessing Candace Kim-Knox has been to me. We have had to fight an up hill battle for a Judicial Release and to say she was amazing, just doesn't sum up enough of the gratitude I feel. Her knowledge, her perseverance and presence in the courtroom is incredible. I have the utmost respect for Candace and I would hire her without hesitation for any other representation. She was prepared for this fight and did everything in her power to accomplish the task at hand. Additionally, she took the time to speak to all involved in this release and to explain actions that the court made as well as her understanding and compassion for this case.

She gets the job done!
We retained Attorney Kim-Knox to get a disposition for my husband's background to be cleared up for our upcoming adoption. And to this day we will choose her again and again if needed! To God be the glory!! She got the job done, words alone can not express how grateful we are.

I had an ovi and Candace represented me. She got me 7 days total house arrest, and then 18 days of regular house arrest for a second ovi within 10 years. No jail time. Outstanding work. I highly recommend her!

Review for Candace Ann Kim-Knox
Candace Ann Kim-Knox was a great lawyer for me. She took care of me in court. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. She always knew what to say whenever the judge would ask questions. She helped me through the entire process.

OVI
Candace was an excellent lawyer. My case looked bad, I blew on the breathalyzer and Candace still managed to get my case dropped to a physical control. She really knows her stuff! She made a very stressful situation for me have a very good outcome. If your fighting a OVI case or any case period I recommend you go to her. She is very easy to talk to and well get you the best results!

Wonderful! Exceeded all expectations
Candace Kim-Knox was an amazing attorney. Hired her for an OVI charge and she was amazing and did everything she could to help me. A friend highly recommended her so I contacted her and had a phone consultation. She answered all questions that I had and explained how she would go about the case. She kept me informed every step of the way and fought for me. She looked into every aspect of my case and did a lot of work to get the best possible outcome. The results were far better than I ever expected possible. Having her help me through the entire process was great and I would highly recommend her.

DUI Attorney, Summer 2019
I was charged with a DUI as, I was speeding and refused to blow and failed the field sobriety test. I performed well for the camera and was polite to the officer. The next day, I searched for a lawyer in Akron, OH with a good history and Candice came up several times. So I called her, and retained her after that first meeting as I liked her style and personality. The price was fair. The work she did for me was exceptional. I barely had to even go to court. When I did the longest I had to wait was 30 min, but typically was only 15 min. She got my charged reduced to a physical control with no points and they dropped my speeding ticket. This was an amazing turn around and I barely felt the effect on my day-to-day. I would encourage anyone in the area to go to her. She kicks butt at what shes does and she knows exactly what to do and how to do it. Thanks Candice!

Grateful
Candace took the time to see me right away and go through my case thoroughly. After reviewing my case, there was no question. Attorney Knox filed to get my license back early, after all headaches from other attorneys. Attorney Knox got my license back quickly. Her rates are by far the best, and her communication was just simply amazing. Wish I would have found Attorney Knox before I did. Saved me so much time and hassle. I am extremely grateful. Thank you for your hard work.

Great Attorney and Person
I hired Mrs Candace Kim Knox with somewhat of a short notice and she also already had previous cases. It was no problem for her I always felt as if I was her number one client and friend. She was able to get me the minimum for a high tier OVI case.

OVI
Let me just say Candace Knox was a godsend for my case and the overall ruling. Mind you, I had an OVI 7 years prior to this one. On my first OVI 7 years ago, I paid a lot more money and got it reduced to a reckless ops but the outcome to this case was even better than that! I refused the breathalyzer and got a reduction to a physical control which is 0 points on my license. Recently I just graduated college but if I were to get convicted, I would have paid and went to school for nothing because I would not get hired. Not only were her fees affordable but she saved my career! I highly recommend Candace for your OVI case!

Look no further
Hiring Candace to appeal the false conviction of my OVI proved that former prosecutors are the best defenders. She knows our legal rights like the back of her hand, and exhaustively uses every in and out of them. Not only is she a skilled communicator with tough-as-nails determination, but it's obvious that she and her secretary genuinely care for each and every one of her clients. She goes above and beyond to accommodate with tight situations, and she keeps her word. I would recommend her to anyone as an attorney you can feel safe with.

Great Lawyer
I hired Candice to handle the dissolution of my marriage. She gave me good advice and took care of every step of the process quickly and efficiently. My result was much better than I had expected. She is knowledgeable, professional, and very skilled at keeping people focused when the conversation needs to delve into personal and emotional areas. She is simply excellent at her job.
