Posted by Gary and Kaye
Several years ago we were referred to Scott Candoo. We hired Mr. Candoo and found that he not only was he an excellent attorney but he also listened and cared about our concerns. More recently he also referred us to a specialized attorney. We still use Mr. Candoo for advice occasionally, and we would highly recommend him to anyone!

I came to Mr. Candoo about 2 months before a dissolution trial. During the year before the trial, I had been self representing and pleaded with my X to have us make things right. It was not going well and to top it off, she put false accusations out there that took my children from me!
I was an emotional wreck from her last onslaught and I needed help ASAP. After several attorney interviews, Mr. Candoo's name came up, and he was recommended by a multiple sources there after. With such a short time coming to the trial date, I met with him too and he agreed to represent me.
He first saw to it that I receive the proper personal/grief counseling needed to get through the emotional pains of the past year. Then he tackled each legal issue and dismantled ALL the false accusations. Mr. Candoo cares about his clients and wants to get the best outcome possible for each situation, and he wants you to be the best you can be too.
Now that all is over, my children are back at home with me and life is almost normal again. There is NO way I could have got through this tough time with out the proper representation. The ugly situation was only getting worse. I highly recommend Mr. Candoo for you.

Scott Candoo, is a long established Tacoma Lawyer who you can count on. I had the privilege of having Scott represent me in a family law case and criminal law case. There is no better lawyer you could have for his ability to stay posed under the most difficult of circumstances. Scott's integrity is above reproach, compared to many other lawyers now in practice. His office staff is easy to reach and very competent at what they do. I would not think twice about recommending Scott or using his services again

I was pregnant, stressed out and hormonal. Scott was amazing through all of my mood swings. He took the stress of trying to understand everything. That alone was worth every penny and them some. Scott got me everything I was entitled to get. When I randomly share my story with other divorcees I instantly see how necessary a Lawyer is. He kept me focused on what was important now and the future. He also did great at being a respectful middle man when the fighting between my ex and I would get bad. .

Scott Candoo is AMAZING. This review is long over due but very much deserved. Last April my year long battle to divorce my husband was final, all with the extraordinary help of Mr. Candoo. My ex-husband is affected by the personality disorder Narcissistic/Borderline and was trying to make divorcing him extremely difficult; his mind does not work logically and rationally like the average person. This really worried me when it came to looking for someone to represent me. After speaking to Scott on the phone about the details of my divorce case I was immediately put to ease. Scott knew EXACTLY the kind of person my ex was and exactly how to deal with him. Through-out my case his tactics were very effective and it took much less time (and money) to complete the divorce then I ever expected. Scott (and his staff) were always very easy to talk to, responded quickly to phone calls and emails and are just generally good people. I would 100% recommend him to anyone for any type of case and I would not hesitate to call on him in the future if I find myself needing legal help again. Thank you Scott Candoo!!

In the beginning, Scott was very informative and kept me well informed. As the case dragged on, he began to neglect me. At his hourly rate, he began to charge me when I checked in with him. Finally, he missed a very time sensitive filing that would have sealed a win. After I fired him, he billed me for the time I spent on the phone firing him! I believe that Scott has good intentions and enjoyed the beginning of the fight but did not have the follow through to complete it. If you have an open/shut case, the may be able to assist you. In my case, with a lengthy process that needed attention to detail, he could not.

Everytime I thought I was going to lose my mind during my custody fight, he kept me focused, gave me my reality checks when I needed them and always made sure I knew exactly what was and would be happening at all times, as well as his paralegal Maryanne. I needed that kind of security considering I was fighting for my children. I have worked with Scott twice and my mother worked with him as well. I would trust him for anything. Hes a realistic, no nonsense Attorney that has a heart and is always looking out for your best interest. Hire him TODAY!

We hired Scott in January 2011 to get my daughters son back from his father in Alaska, from the moment I talked to Scott I knew he was the one that was going to get the job done! He has been so caring and compasionate about the whole case, and he honestly cares about his clients, we always knew what was happening with the case. He is very professional and has the biggest heart, he truly has made my daughter feel so secure in her case and his expertise about his job. We truly cannot say enough good things about Scott and his help that he has given us and will continue to give us until this case is done. Scott, Thank you for everything.
I would reccomend Scott Candoo for anything, and he also has the best office staff.

I find Scott to be a very personable and knowledgeable attorney. He has handled all of my law issues with the utmost respect and professionalism. I trust him to always make the right decisions and advise me on what course would be the most beneficial to me and my situation.

Mr. Candoo was recommended by my firend's friend. I was very happy and pleased he was my attorney. I recommend to anyone who need an attorney.
I went to my 1st meeting with my trustworthy friend and I was nervous. When Mr. Candoo introduced himself, I knew immediately he could help me. I liked his well mannered gesture. I was deeply impressed by Mr. Candoo's professionalism.
I was surprised to know that he was organized and prepared for my case. I understood it was not easy to take over from someone's work. After all, he had to study my case from May 2007 to October 2009.
At the 1st meeting he impressed me by his fast pace work, typing fast and at the same time, he could listen to our questions. He pointed out and made a list what I could do and what the possible outcome would be.
When I had questions no matter what kind, I did not have to hesitate to ask him. He paid attention to my smallest question with respect. Since last year November until it was over, Mr. Candoo and his assistant kept me informed what was happening. It was so nice to have such contacts/relations because my previous attorney didn't.
What I admire and respect Mr. Candoo was that he always kept and pursued what the best for me. We had lots of talking both pros and cons. When it came to make a decision, we did it together. He never pushed what he thought the best for me.
I'm glad my 3 yers 2 months of waiting to be free was over. I truly believe that I couldn't do it without Mr. Candoo.
