    Kathleen Cannon has more experience, skill and compassion than any other lawyer I have encountered in my 23 years of practice. Her command of the law and her incredible advocacy skills are sought after not only by people in need of her services but by her colleagues and new lawyers who want her to teach them how to be as effective as she is.
