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.
