Jamaul Cannon

Brief Professional History

Jamaul Cannon is an attorney with over ten years of practice in the areas of both civil and family law. In 2009, after working for several of the largest law firms in the world, he opened his own private practice, the “Cannon Legal Group.”

After practicing for nearly seven years in the areas of business and employment litigation, he decided to venture off on his own and start his own practice. Mr. Cannon began with a “virtual office” in Glendale consisting of just himself and his determination to wear many hats throughout all stages of the attorney-client representation.

Mission & Work Ethic

Today, even though he works with another partner and has his own administrative staff, the underlying principles behind his law practice remain unchanged. Mr. Cannon's commitment to achieving excellent results for his clients has earned him a perfect Avvo Rating of 10.0 Superb, as well as the highly sought after Avvo Clients' Choice award.

The core of Mr. Cannon's vision for Cannon Legal Group developed over time because he felt he had to make several tradeoffs working for large firms that he simply was unwilling to continue forever. Because Mr. Cannon had a young family, he wanted to attain greater control over his calendar and work/life balance. Ironically, he probably works harder; but he also works smarter. His days now fly by because he truly loves what he does and the people with whom he works.

Approach to Family Law Cases

Mr. Cannon readily recognizes that family law is the one area of law in which attorneys typically work with clients who are at one of, if not the, lowest emotional points of their lives. Consequently, Mr. Cannon recognizes that his job as an attorney is to exhibit the care, empathy and ability to listen that he feels many attorneys often overlook. Mr. Cannon's philosophy has been that by finding work he enjoys and people with whom he enjoys working, the outstanding results that he seeks for clients will eventually come to pass. It as a philosophy that has served him well for ten years of private practice and it is even truer today.


Mr. Cannon, is an Ivy League graduate of the Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science where he received a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Industrial Engineering and a minor in Economics. Mr. Cannon earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2003.
