CANDICE J. SHOCKLEY, ESQ.

candice_4ma28838929-6BACKGROUND & EDUCATION

As an attorney, I am licensed to practice law in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. The focus of my practice is primarily in Shelby County and Jefferson County, however I have successfully argued cases before the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and the Supreme Court of Alabama.

My undergraduate degree is from Wesleyan College, where I graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors. I studied law at Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama and received my Juris Doctorate decree in 1983.

I started practicing law in Bessemer, Alabama in 1984, then relocated to Pelham, Alabama in 1995 and have continued to practice law in Pelham since that time.

I have successfully represented people and businesses in all walks of life; teachers, small business men and women, farmers, lawyers, hotel owners, nurses, and “stay at home” moms and dads. I devote my time and attention to my client’s cases, in order to obtain the best results possible. While a much of my practice is devoted to divorce and family law, I have obtained significant settlements and verdicts in personal injury, fraud and business litigation cases. I believe in providing dedicated service to my clients, in and out of the courtroom.
