For over a decade, Attorney Candice O’Neil has been drawn to estate planning for the opportunity it provides to educate people about a complicated but important area of the law and to build lifelong relationships with clients. Her natural compassion and patience help put her clients at ease as they discuss the personal and sensitive issues necessary to creating an effective estate plan.
While clients are drawn to her personable nature, they are also comforted knowing that she has over a decade of experience in estate planning. A graduate of Assumption College and Northeastern University School of Law, Candice honed her skills at a Massachusetts law firm and a wealth management company before joining Hudkins Law in 2011. Now the Managing Attorney of the Hampton, NH, office, Candice helps individuals and families protect their assets, plan for the care of loved ones and minor children, and avoid probate. In addition, she advises small business owners, assisting with entity selection, business formation, business succession planning, and contract drafting.
A Red Sox fan, Candice met her husband Corey at a game and later got engaged at Fenway Park. Since then, they have made an effort to go to a game each year on the anniversary of that first meeting, no matter where it takes them. This is not as easy as it used to be because their three young boys, ages 6, 3, and 1, keep them very busy at home. In her spare time, Candice enjoys exploring the New Hampshire and Massachusetts seacoast and discovering new gems in Boston, Portland, Portsmouth, and Newburyport with her family. They love the Seacoast Science Center and Odiorne Point State Park, spending time at the beach, and exploring nature. She feels incredibly blessed to live in what she considers to be one of the most beautiful parts of the country.
It is never too soon to start thinking about protecting your assets and making a plan for your loved ones. Candice believes that every individual—young or old, married or single, wealthy or otherwise—should have an estate plan of some form.
