The Law Offices of Candiotty and Block is a general services law firm offering legal support in a wide range of areas. We get to know our clients' needs, and our practice is built on the relationships we have with the people we serve. When you call us, you're not dealing with a junior associate or a paralegal — you're speaking with your attorney who has decades of experience, and we are committed to helping you achieve the legal outcome you are seeking.  Many of our clients have been with us for decades and many are the second generation of long-standing clients.  We strive to make every client feel like they are our only client, and we pride ourselves on being deal-makers, not deal-breakers.

Our clientele includes start-up companies and large international corporations.  We represent young families looking to plan for the future with a family trust and families looking to do sophisticated tax planning and transfer wealth and management of assets to the next generation.  Doctors, accountants, realtors and even other lawyers call on the Law Offices of Candiotty and Block to represent them because they know that we will treat them with the kind of experience, professionalism and personalization that they strive to offer to their own clients.
