Hi, I'm Dana Cannon

I have nearly 30 years of experience with Estate and Trust Litigation matters. As an attorney, I have successfully administered, litigated, and settled small estates involving minimal assets, complex matters with assets in excess of $30 million, and everything in between.

My passion and drive to help clients stem from my personal experience with a family dispute involving my grandmother. I know firsthand the emotional toll it can take out of a family when dealing with a legal dispute involving a loved one.

It is my goal to ensure that my clients are well-informed every step of the way, confident that their rights are being protected, and that all parties involved are treated with respect.
