About Candace

Learn Candace’s areas of practice.


Yes. I'm an attorney. But get those stuffy images and greedy stereotypes out of your head. I became an attorney to help people and I'm here to help you. Too many people don't know the little things that can make all the difference in their lives. Sometimes you just need a friendly neighbor with some helpful insight. So thanks for stopping by- I'm The Attorney Next Door! :)

Calling myself The Attorney Next Door has been a long time coming.  You see, law school doesn't teach lawyers how to help people.  It teaches us how to think from different perspectives, see issues from multiple vantage points and argue different positions. It teaches us to research the law and apply it to different fact patterns.  But it doesn't teach us how to take our skills and services and make them affordable and accessible to the general population. But that's what I'm about.


Let's focus finding and executing a strategy for your success at a price you can afford.

Interview Candace, you won't regret it
Candace has been a heaven sent. She is very comforting in a stressful time. You can sense her personal interest while always retaining a professional demeanor. I was always well informed and up to date on any necessary steps, paper work and upcoming strategy that would be used. She always discusses all possibilities positive and negative and is very open and welcoming to feed back and my opinions. When in the court room she handles each situation with its own personal approach to each situation. I have had two different judges on my case with two very different personalities. Her approach to each was adjusted to suit the particular style needed for each situation. Even when a twist was thrown in she was quick to adapt in stride due to her preparation. I felt very comfortable throughout the proceedings since Candace would again, go over all scenarios days and sometimes weeks in advance if possible. The paperwork submitted was very well written and always presented to me for approval prior to submitting which was comforting because I always knew what was going on and had a say so if I wanted a change which was rare. Would I refer Candace, definitely. I interviewed 4 attorneys prior to Candace from downtown L.A. Westwood, Studio City and Woodland hills. By far Candace the best choice and I have no regrets as she continues to help me in my journey. You should at least schedule an interview and see for yourself.

I am very Thankful for Ms. Jones. She has been a very amazing attorney. From the moment I met and talked to Ms. Jones I knew she was the right attorney for me. I was going through child custody and DCFS issues. I was so stressed about my case. But as soon as I talked to Ms. Jones she assured me everything would be okay and she would help me get through my situation. While working on my case Ms. Jones always kept me updated on my case and she always answered my phone calls regardless if my questions where small. She never left my side. All the hard work paid off because I achieved the outcome I wanted. She is very professional and knowledgeable in the courtroom. I couldn't imagine doing this myself or having any other attorney but Ms. Candace Jones . I highly recommend her. Thank You so much Ms. Jones.

Also she explained every step clearly,gave good advice,and was there to help during a very difficult time. Highly recommend. Thank you Candace!.

Candace saved my daughter
I was a month away from DCFS terminating my parental rights. I completed everything ordered by the judge. No failed UA's. Candace took on my case, and fought a system that isn't designed to win, regardless having a private attorney. She knew the court, the people involved and navigated with knowledge and patience. Her retainer and fees were fair. She was patient with my payments. Her assistant Brandy was also wonderful and helpful. All calls were always returned timely and she always came to court prepared and informed. My case was an usually difficult; group homes, mental wards, ICPC, a newborn, choosing to stay married, a jaded social worker, extended past the 24 month time limit, just to name a few hurdles. Candace saved our lives; I thank her and ONLY recommend her.

Job well done!!
I hired Candace to help me with my custody battle. Not only did she handle my case in a timely and professional manner...we WON! I can honestly say I was nervous being that I’m the father in the case and he lived with his mother, “usually” the “system” favors the mother. Not in my case! Candace was straight forward and presented the fatcs which helped us prevail! I would definitely recommend her with all of your family law needs. Thanks Candace!!

Child Custody
Mrs. Jones came highly recommended by two colleagues. She provided limited scope services for my child custody trial. We met initialy via tele-conference. During this meeting, it allowed me to provide some background history and context. We then met for an hour as Mrs. Jones prepared a draft of my responsive declaration. We met a week later for a coaching session. During this hour, we discussed my desired outcome and the goals I wanted to set. We debriefed strategic action and appropriate steps. I left the meeting having done some deep thinking and with action items to undertake which prepared me to represent myself Pro se in my trial. Thanks to Mrs. Jones, at the end of the trial, the respondent’s request to modify custody and visitation was denied. I will be eternally grateful to Mrs. Jones and would recommend her services without hesitation.

If I could use one word for Candace Jones it would be amazing! However why stop there, she is smart, knowledgeable in law, patient, understanding and diligent. I had what appeared to be a fairly easy case and in my eyes should of been closed easily. However due to opposing council turning it into nightmare it was anything but easy. Candace did a great job at what I can only call games and trickery from the opposing council. Divorce cases can become emotional and Candace kept a calming demeanor that transcended to me. She also did what she could to keep fees down since the opposition was bent bent on continuances, delays, and deceptions. I would recommend Candace Jones to anyone that needed great representation, fair fees, and a great attorney. I am very grateful for her services in my case.

Performance at My Trial
Ms Jones in the beginning heard my specific needs in person and was very patient in listening to my concerns. She explained to me in lay terms what to expect and what my options were. There was no pressure at all. Ms.Jones treated me on a one to one basis and followed up exactly as she said before, during and after my trial. The day of my trial, Ms. Jones was aggressive on my behalf and demonstrated leadership and made me feel confident that day. She definately has skills and wisdom of the law. I was extremely satisfied with the judges decision that day. I highly recommend and commend Ms.Candace Jones for her expertise in the field of attorney at law. I thank you again Ms.Jones. Sincerely, Lester
