Candace Martinez joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2022. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.

Prior to attending law school, Candace worked as a political compliance analyst in Washington, D.C. and as a municipal law analyst in Ontario, California. In law school, Candace was a research assistant for the UCLA Resnick Center for Food Law & Policy and served externships at the U.S. Attorney's Office and the Federal Public Defender's Office.
