I have always enjoyed protecting the rights of the little guy.  Too often the party with deeper pockets wins and I yearn to change that by leveling the playing field.  Everyone deserves justice.

Mr. Canner is an excellent attorney. I had a great experience with him. He was able to get me more than I was expecting. He kept me up to date on everything with my case as it progressed. He's extremely knowledgeable, personable and hard working. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Thankful Client!
Michael was great to work with. I am starting a small business and he was able to get a contract in order for me that allows me to engage each client with the ease of mind of knowing that I have a solid contract. He was very responsive to my questions and thorough. Highly recommended.

Excellent Attorney
Micheal Canner is a great attorney. He makes times for every client no matter what he is doing, he go beyond measures to make sure his client is happy. Micheal helped me get way more than I was expecting & was even helping me with something that had absolutely nothing to do with my case. He referred me to great doctors who helped me heal naturally with no medication what so ever. He do way more than his job and I’ll always think of him if someone I know ever may need an attorney
