Cannon Legal Firm

About Cannon Legal Firm's Attorney.

An advocate you can rely on and legal expertise you can trust.

Your Attorney...
Dana M. Cannon

I am a wife, stepmother, new grandmother, and dog mom. I am a long-time resident of Long Beach, California. I grew up on the beaches of Orange County. I am proud to provide estate planning, trust and estate administration and litigation services to Long Beach, Seal Beach, and all of Orange County, Los Angeles County, and the surrounding counties of Southern California. My husband and I are avid boaters and spend several weeks a year on Catalina Island with our bulldogs.

I know that you have lives, families, careers, and other things that are important to you. As your attorney, my goal is to help to demystify the legal process and allow you to focus on what matters to you.

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 a legal dispute involving a loved one can take on a family.

It is my objective 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.
