Cindy was my attorney for my divorce. Dealing with my ex is very difficult and Cindy had to negotiate a number of complicated issues with him. She was able to do that and she was able to get fees against me waived. She also kept me informed and updated. She is smart and very professional. I would not hesitate to call her if I ever need representation in court again. I saved money by hiring her.

Cindy Lee Cannon was referred to me as an attorney that will defend your legal matters and care for your case above and beyond any other attorney. This couldn't have been more true! Cindy helped me with an extremely difficult and high conflict custody situation and move away request. Every hearing or matter that she represented me in was resolved in my favor. She was hands on with my case and through the process became someone that I would call my friend today. She was personally invested in my case and ensured that my interests were always represented with an eye on cost containment. I am grateful everyday that I received Cindy's name as a referral and hope that she continues to find joy in the helping people find safety, peace, stability, and the ability to move forward in their lives. That is what she has done for me and my girls. Thank you Cindy.

Cindy helped my daughter with her civil case against people who assaulted her. She is so compassionate and goes beyond the call of duty in every way for her clients. I could not have asked for better representation and would recommend her highly to anyone.

My ex-husband was trying to remodify our divorce agreement that was settled 2 years ago, but my story had a little twist to it. All the attorneys I spoke to would just categorize my situation without hearing me out completely, and quote me a ridiculous retainer fee. I continued to search and that's when I found Cindy on this website. She is a genuinely wonderful person who truly cares about each of her clients. From the first time I spoke to her, I felt warmth in her voice talking to me with concern, not as an attorney judging to see if this case would be worthwhile. Once I met her, I knew that she was the attorney for me. If attorneys are just looking to make money, it shows in their work habits, communication and mannerisms. Cindy is a positive and very knowledgable attorney to work with. The court order was in our favor, though we still have some work to do. I am very happy and grateful to Cindy who has been and will be there with me every step of the way. Thank you Cindy!

I have known Cindy Cannon for 20 years. Although we both grew up in Laguna Beach, we didn't know each other in school. When I first met her we connected right away. Cindy always has a smiling face and wants to know how "you" are doing. When I would see Cindy around town I would always ask how work is going. She always had a positive response. I guess she wins most of her cases, she had no reason to lie to me. When I called her to help me with my daughter she immediately asked how she could help and said we will get this taken care of immediately. I sent her all the important information, the letter was sent and my daughter's money was sent to her with no going to court. I highly recommend Cindy Cannon to help you with family matters.

A few years ago, I hired Cindy to help me file papers for my divorce from my first husband. She agreed to help me. I understood her to not be representing, so there was no confusion as to her role. However, she filed the papers, improperly, and then did not do anything to correct the issue(s.) I asked her several times for her help, and then eventually just her guidance and legal advice. She brushed me off, not returning my correspondence or only returning short, curt and unprofessional emails. This resulted in my having to take time off work and attempt to refile three times on my own, getting three rejections based on initially filed paperwork.
This also delayed the legal immigration of my then fiance by almost TWO YEARS. I finally hired a paralegal who was able to correct the problem and finish my divorce very quickly. Cindy's care for me disappeared once the deposit check for thousands of dollars cleared.
I'm glad others have been helped by her, but it seems like if you are not rich or cannot give her major fees/rewards with your case, she won't do all she can to help you.

She was never available when I needed her. Most of the time she was on vacation and she only showed up to one court case and made me lose my case completely. I would have been better off on my own.

Cindy came off like she really cared about her job and made it seem that she would go the extra mile to help out, but when it came down to it she failed to keep her promises and all she was worried about was getting paid. She didn't do anything she was suppose to do if fact she let the opposing attorney just bully her around. She failed me completely.

Cindy was a huge asset in a victory with settlement in a Civil Law case that was related to a complicated criminal domestic violence case and 5 year long family law case. I referred her to a friend and she was thrilled with Cindy as well. Cindy is honorable and tenacious and someone you would want on your team and in your corner if life ever brings you an unexpected legal surprise. I hope to never need her again but would hope to use her if necessary.

Cindy went the extra mile for me during the 3 years she represented my case. She took a civil case agains my ex-husband during my divorce no other lawyer would consider.
The only think I would recommend to the readers is to be sure to double and triple check Cindy's work. There was a very important piece of propery (importance isn't tied to monetary) that was reflected in the draft judgments and negotion round but somehow it disappeared from the final judgment filed with the court. Then Cindy dropped my case.becasuse according to her I filed a Case with the Department of Child Support services against her advice. It still doesn't make sense to me to pay a lawyrer $250/hr to collect $422/month of money the father doesn't want to pay. At the end of the day Cindy held true to her word, and worked hard. She made some pretty big mistakes but who doesn't? It is my fault I was ever in that stituation.
