Top Family Lawyer and Mediator in Birmingham
Experienced, caring and dedicated family lawyer Candace (Candi) B. Peeples is a partner at Shaw, Anderson & Peeples, L.L.C, a boutique law firm in Birmingham where she practices law limited to areas of matrimonial and family law including divorce, child custody/support, alimony, property division, premarital agreements, adoption, assisted reproductive technology, and other post-divorce modification and enforcement issues. As one of the Birmingham Business Journal‘s “Top 40 under 40”, Candi is an active member of the Birmingham community. With over 13 years of experience and a widespread reputation for excellence and ethics, Candi was featured by Birmingham Magazine as one of the city’s “Top Attorneys” in family law — a selection voted on by her peers in the legal field. She is also a certified domestic and appellate mediator who facilitates both private party mediations as well as mediation sessions with attorney participation from represented parties.
Helping you Transition to the Next Phase of Your Life
Divorce is a time of uncertainty, anxiety and emotional turmoil. It can be impossible for you to imagine a life “after divorce”. That’s why Candi will personally focus on your family’s divorce situation clearly educate you on your options, and help you make wise, level-headed decisions today that lead to a better tomorrow for you and your children.
Avoiding Lengthy Litigation
It’s common knowledge that settling a divorce outside of court is swifter, less costly and significantly less stressful than heading to trial. Candi believes that every case has the potential to settle out of court, and strives to exhaust all possible avenues to help you avoid lengthy litigation. She will help you sort out complex financial issues, intricate business arrangements and the tangled maze of blended families. However, if the merits of your case require a trial, be assured that Candi has the proven skills to aggressively protect your rights in court.
Preserving your Family’s Future
While divorce can seem like the “ultimate final chapter” in your relationship with your spouse, if there are children involved, it’s not going to be the end in the eyes of the courts – or your children. That’s why Candi helps you preserve a civil, respectful, and responsible “co-parenting” relationship with your ex-spouse. This is vital to the healthy development of your children, plus it supports your own personal healing and peace of mind.
A Network of Professionals Who Can Help
Candi fully respects that you may need more than legal support as you go through your divorce. With your approval and in full confidence, Candi can coordinate the professional services of marriage counselors, financial advisors, medical and mental health experts.
