Candy Arthur - Legal Assistant

What Kind of Work do you do at Hemminger Law Group Westshore?

I am a legal assistant working on all legal matters including family law matters. I am also known as the "Queen of Operations." I am the person in our law firm family that makes sure everything runs smoothly for not only the people who work here, but most importantly, for our clients. 


If there is one lesson you learned as a young person that you would like to pass on to others, what would that be?

When things seem really difficult or challenging in life, we have to remember it is not the end of it. We can get through these things and learn from our experiences. I know this from my personal experience as a single parent.


What is your home town?

I was born in Kamloops, but have lived in Victoria, since I was wee, like four or five years old.


What do you love most about Langford and the Westshore?

I grew up here, so it is my home. My friends and family live here too.  It is also where I work with my Hemminger Law Group Westshore "family." I love everything about Langford. It is friendly and upbeat. It is a great place to be. It is a great place to raise my child.


Where are your top 3 favourite places and how come?

1. Ogden point - this is because of the beautiful view. It is a great local place to go and reconnect with myself.

2. Botanical Beach - this place is magical. The sights, sounds, and smells of the ocean are all so beautiful and refreshing. 

3. Anywhere with my son, Arijah. He is my world and we love adventuring around Victoria and all over Vancouver Island making new memories.


Outside of the legal profession, what is your passion?

Besides spending time with my son, I would say sailing. I used to sail competitively in races, and now I enjoy coaching and teaching others to sail. 


How do you deliver your more as a part of the more than your ordinary law firm family?

I deliver more by taking the time to connect personally with each client and listening to and validating what they are saying. It is the connection to the clients that is important for me. I like to welcome them into our law firm and help them understand that they are part of our created and legal "family" at Hemminger Law Group Westshore.
