He earned his law degree from California Western School of Law and previously earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy with a Pre-Law focus from California State University, Fresno.

Kandah brings significant litigation experience to HFM’s Trusts & Estates practice, combined with prior expertise in the financial sector. Before beginning his legal career, Kandah spent over a decade in the banking industry, including serving as Vice President for JP Morgan Chase & Company. Kandah’s law practice has focused on a broad range of complex litigation, including appeals, in both state and federal courts. He earned his law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law and previously earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from San Diego State University.

Both Donaghy and Kandah joined HFM in early June.
