Candice Tully

Paralegal

Candice was in a long-term, abusive relationship from the end of high school through her early 20’s. What initially started as young love turned into a full-out war zone. She was surrounded by verbal, physical, and emotional abuse from someone who thought recreational drug use wasn’t an issue. Very shortly after her 18th birthday she found out she was pregnant. She tried to reconcile the relationship for 4 years after her son was born, which involved numerous physical and verbal altercations, several bloody noses and plenty of “other women”.  She finally knew it was time to call it quits when she discovered her son’s father had progressed from occasional recreational drugs to using heroin in their family home in the presence of her young child while she was at work. 

Leaving was hard, but it wasn’t the hardest part. That came as her son grew older and asked about his father, even though his memories of them as a family were very clouded. Eventually over the years, as his father never came around, the questions became less and less frequent. But for many years she felt guilty, knowing that the decision that needed to be made would also cause her son heartache. Her son now has a new role model in his life and is safe and happy.  Leaving was not a mistake – it was just the start of another chapter.

Journey to Family Law

Candice fell into family law accidentally. After leaving her son’s father in 2012, she started the paralegal program and applied for a Craigslist ad for a receptionist position at what turned out to be Modern Law. The rest is history! After about a year with the company, she quickly transitioned to a Paralegal position and has worked on hundreds of different cases.

Favorite Types of Cases

Professionally, Candice is experienced, organized, diligent, and very committed.  She most enjoys working on complex custody cases but there is no case she will turn away. Candice is passionate about helping people and their families. She knows the heartache surrounding the situation that many of our clients face, but she also knows there is light at the end of the tunnel. She knows first-hand and through years of working with clients that the way you feel today is not the way you will feel in nine months when your case is done, or in the years following when you have recovered.
