I've been helping the victims of auto collisions, dog attacks, 18 wheeler accidents, work accidents where there is no workers compensation and slip-and-fall negligence in  Houston since I first obtained my law license in 1995. I am certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law and personal injury is all our law firm does.  If you have been hurt and need an experienced advocate fighting in your corner, please give me a call. 

I was born here in Houston back in 1970. My wife and I have two awesome kids and we spend most of our free time on the soccer fields and on the sidelines coaching and cheering them on.

Auto accident
Paul Cannon did an amazing job with my case. He would take the time to make sure I knew what was going on, and he or Stephanie were there anytime I had questions. They are willing to go above and beyond-without being asked-, they truly make you feel like you are the only client they have! I highly recommend Paul Cannon, and his paralegal Stephanie!

Professional, Caring and would refer Paul to anyone who needs a Great Lawyer!
I came to Paul Cannon when I had a shoulder injury due to a fall in a store. He handled this case Professionally and I received a settlement quickly. He listened and kept me informed on all the details. Stephanie always emailed or called me back quickly to every question I asked and I always felt comfortable when I came into the office. Mr. Cannon is truly a "Christian Trial Lawyer" as I felt he handled this situation with a caring heart. Jesus will be proud of his service to his clients! I felt the staffs prayers as I prayed for this case to be handled in a way that all involved would be satisfied with the results. I know that if I have to have an attorney in the future, I know where I will go, and I would Highly Recommend Paul Cannon to help you through your difficult journey, as he handled mine in a way that I am truly Grateful for! Thank you Paul and Stephanie! You guys are Great!

I would Highly Recommend Attorney Paul Cannon....
I had a wonderful experience with attorney Paul Cannon. He and his staff always kept me updated and informed with my file. They returned phone calls promptly. Paul is very very knowledgeable and my husband and I really trusted him and knew he had our best interested at heart. Paul and his staff went over and beyond the call of duty to ensure I received a fair judgment on my case. My husband and I felt we were his only clients because of the amount of time he spent with us explaining our case and answering all of our questions. I have already referred clients to him and will continue to refer and we would defiantly use him again. I have never had such an amazing experience and trusted an attorney before until I met Attorney Paul Cannon…….

Wonderful Attorney
Paul Cannon is an excellent attorney and wonderful person! He handled a case for my 2 year old's burn injury incurred at a childcare facility. He was very thorough and creative in exploring solutions. His ability to think "out of the box" is very valuable. He does not give up easily either. When a positive or lucrative result seemed dim, he continued to explore possible win situations. He has a big heart. He is always considerate of his clients first before himself. He could have charged a considerable amount for his services instead he allowed the funds to go toward my son's college fund. Some other attorneys collect more funds than their clients receive. I highly recommend Paul Cannon to anyone considering utilizing his services.
