Mary Ann Candelario

Personal Injury Attorney on Long Island, NY


Phone: (800) 800-0000

I am a personal injury attorney with a passion for helping those who have been wronged.  I represent my clients tenaciously, with a personal approach, and fight for my clients as if they were my family.

I graduated from the University of Charleston, West Virginia with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science and a minor in Business, and then continued on to receive my law degree from Pace Law School. I am licensed to practice in New York and my professional affiliations include the Bronx Bar Association and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. Additionally, I am fluent in Spanish.

Over my 28 years of practicing law, I tried many cases to verdict in New York. My goal is to get you the compensation you deserve for your personal injury case, including motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, premises liability, construction accidents, nursing home negligence, dog or animal attacks, wrongful death, and more.

In my spare time, I cherish spending time with my children, 17 year old twins. My happy place is the beach.

The Barnes Firm has the resources and experience you need to fight insurance companies and get the compensation that you deserve. Our firm is dedicated and eager to work for you and help you get the best result possible.
