Through The Mom at Law, Candace provides programs and coaching to women lawyers seeking navigating career transitions in or outside the law.

why women lawyers?

Like any group, women lawyers are a diverse lot. However, we have many things in common, too. We are ambitious. We started our legal education bright-eyed and hopeful, eager to take on the challenges before us. Second, we are determined and scrappy—you don’t earn the “Esq.” without taking your lumps and paying your dues.

Further, as moms, we are united by the common thread of motherhood in all its exhausting, all-consuming, beautiful, frustrating glory. We want equity. We want equality. We moms at law are tough. But that doesn’t mean we can—or should—face our personal and professional challenges alone.

My Clients

kind words from

“I’m a recovering attorney who has followed Candace’s story for years on her Mom at Law blog and Instagram account. Reading about her experiences as a lawyer finding a new creative professional outlet inspired me to make my own career transition and leave a soul-sucking job I hated. With Candace’s help, I pivoted to consulting in my area of expertise. Candace’s insights were so helpful. I would never have made the leap without her experience!  - Natalie, attorney turned consultant
