Her business background and experience make her uniquely qualified to represent clients in complex property cases in a divorce.

Ms. Cannon represents famiies with compassion, zealous advocacy and thorough analysis and litigation of difficult and extraordinary legal issues. Courts also often appoint Lennea as an amicus or ad litem attorney to represent the best interest of children involved iin litigation. 


 


She is also a member of the American Bar Association (Family Law Committee and Civil Litigation Section), Houston Bar Association (Family Law Section Member), Fort Bend Bar Association (Family Law Committee) and is a Family Law Section Member of the State Bar of Texas.

  • Benjamin Lowell Hisey

    I endorse this lawyer. Lennea's unparalleled ability to relate to her clients, puts her at another level with respect to family law attorneys. That being said, Lennea is a superb orator and litigator and she possesses a strong court room presence and an ability to think on her feet.
