Candace is Founder of Duff Law and Mediation, located on Miami Beach.
What is your business?
As the founder of Duff Law and Mediation, I bring people together instead of fighting through the long court process. I love litigation, yet I prefer mediation as it is more viable for most people.
What makes you great at what you do?
My personal experience. I am a Florida Supreme Court certified Circuit Civil, Appellate and Family Law mediator. However, my specialties are vast. I specialize in commercial, construction, insurance, employment, bankruptcy, federal, appellate, tort, products liability and real property mediation. Prior to Duff Law and Mediation, I worked at Greenberg Taurig, P.A. I enjoy helping individuals and parties through difficult times. This is exactly what I did for over 20 years at Greenberg Taurig. However, I wanted to be more flexible in terms of what services and solutions I could provide to clients.
What led to Duff Law and Mediation?
As a litigator I handled large complex cases and many of those cases would move on to be resolved outside of the litigation or a formal court process. Once I saw those benefits I wanted to focus on Alternative Dispute Resolution.
What do you do outside of work?
I love art and going to music festivals especially because I sing myself. Also, I enjoy spending time writing fiction and attending writers’ conferences to learn and share my work.
