To her peers, Candy Montgomery was a picture-perfect wife and a popular figure within her neighborhood and church. But beneath the surface was a woman in an unsatisfying marriage with wandering eyes. Candy began an affair with Allan Gore, the husband of her friend, Betty. But she was not prepared for the deadly turn that her romantic rendezvous would take.

Retired Attorney Robert Udashen was a member of Candy Montgomery’s defense team. He reflects on the high-profile trial that ensued and discusses how he was able to successfully represent and defend Candy Montgomery.

Robert Udashen has received many awards and accolades throughout his career. For 20 years, he was an adjunct professor of Texas Criminal Procedure, Trial Advocacy, and Criminal Law at the Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University. Robert previously served as President of the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and was named a Texas Super Lawyer by Thompson Reuters.
