While just a 19 year-old college student, Candice Blain was followed home in broad daylight, and violently beaten in an attempted rape.

Her escape involved jumping through a closed second-story window—shattering the glass in the process.  Her injuries left her hospitalized for days.

Her attacker was never found.

Ms. Blain went on to finish college, and excelled in her law school studies.  And upon graduating, she was recruited to work for some of the nation’s top law firms.

In 2016 she founded Blain LLC.

Today, Candice Blain is a nationally recognized expert on gender-related issues, victims’ experiences, and the laws that address (or, fail to address) contemporary abuse.

She tells the story of her own experience as a sexual assault survivor here.
