About Me


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 seven years in the areas of business litigation and labor and employment, 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. A year and a half later, Mr. Cannon had another partner whom he went to undergraduate school (but who unfortunately went to UCLA law school) with, as well as an office manager.  


The core of Mr. Cannon's philosophy 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 a greater control over his calendar and work/life balance. Ironically, he probably works harder, but he also works smarter and his days now fly by because he truly loves what he does as well as the people with whom he works.  Recently, Cannon Legal Group opened a new larger office in order to accommodate a larger staff.  However, no matter how many more people begin to work for Cannon Legal Group, Mr. Cannon’s vision for the firm remains the same: by finding work he enjoys and people with whom he enjoys working and the outstanding results for clients will take care of itself.  It as a philosophy that has served him well for ten years of private practice and it is even truer today.
