Super Lawyer
Lennea Cannon is a Super Lawyer. I had a very difficult complex divorce. It was only because of Ms Cannon's superb knowledge of the law was justice served. She listened and always was on top of my case. Excellent lawyer!!

I picked Lennea to represent me in my child custody/modification case after reading reviews about several lawyers online. I was very particular as I have had a few dissatisfying experiences with lawyers. Lennea is very well rounded: knowledgeable, responsive, careful, insightful, professional, and caring. She works for a big law firm, yet was very accessible by email and phone, making sure she was familiar with all the details of my case. Custody battles are an emotional roller coaster, and that is why I was pleased to have someone as grounded as Lennea looking out for my child's future!

Excellent Amicus
Lennea worked on my case in excess of one year, and took the time to investigate endless lies, manipulations, and misrepresentations about me and my kids to come to a reasonable parenting solution. It did take longer than I would like for those things to be found out, but my case was complicated and her sticking through with an open mind made the difference. She was professional during the entire process and my kids are in excellent shape and protected from the bad things that were happening to them.

Lennea - thank you so much!
Lennea, thank you so much for representing me on my modification case. My child's father isn't exactly a stand-out guy and he's pretty nifty at cutting corners and cheating the system. But not on your watch. From mediation to negotiations to getting my case ready for trial - you've truly fought for the best interest of my family and I'm so grateful for your help and guidance.

Amazing attorney and person
My husband and I first hired a different attorney in a contentious visitation case. After beginning to lose hope for a solution, we hired Lennea. She quickly helped us reach a settlement and a plan we are so happy with and works for both parties. I recommend her for not only her skills but knowing you are in the hands of a good person.

Thank you so much!
I interviewed a number of attorneys before choosing Lennea. Lennea does a great job of helping to keep the end in mind when going through what it is a very emotionally charged area. Lennea was excellent and got me through my divorce quickly. I have 3 kids. I wanted extra custody. Despite a pretty unsuccessful mediation procedure, we were able to move forward and get the best result possible. I would recommend Lennea to anybody that has reached this point in their life.

Top Notch Attorney, Firm and Staff
Reached out to Lennea for a Grandparent Visitation issue. I couldn't be more pleased with her service, eagerness and knowledge of the law. Lennea had reviewed my circumstance prior to my 1st consultation meeting and had a strategy already. If you are in need of legal representation I would look no further, this is by far the firm for you. Hat's off Lennea, you can add this to your win list!!!!

Handled my post divorce matter well
Lennea helped me through a challenging post divorce matter. She was very responsive and made good recommendations that made the process go smoothly. She knows the law and understands the practical realities of contentious family law disputes. I highly recommend.

Wonderful Attorneys
Lennea Cannon and the rest of her team took us as adoption clients at the last minute and provided us with wonderful service. Her team knew exactly what they were doing, kept us informed and did their job fantastically.

Review for Lennea Cannon
Mrs. Cannon, was nothing but professional, kind, warm and loving towards her clients, my children during my custody case. She wanted what was best for the kids from day one and would not settle for anything less. Mrs. Cannon was very thorough and presented a great case to the court for her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a custody case and is in need of an attorney to look after the best interests or their kids.

Highly Recommended Family Law Attorney
Lennea is a very talented and professional attorney. She is clearly a subject matter expert in Family Law and had a deep understanding of my needs as a client. Lennea made herself available as required and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. She also provided me with first class representation during my proceedings.

Great, comprehensive divorce attorney
Would recommend Lennea Cannon again and again. She cleaned up behind the opposing counsel's mess and made sure I was taken care of.

The Most AMAZING Family Attorney...Lennea Cannon
Lennea Cannon with Kerr, Hendershot and Cannon, is a professional who goes above and beyond for her clients. I am writing this praise before the outcome of my case because I firmly believe no one else could have been more prepared, knowledgeable or compassionate. This is round 2 with my ex. She gave me the strength to stand up and fight back for my children. The decision is up to the Judge…but I can walk away with my head held high and knowing God sent me an angel in Lennea Cannon. I pray no one here needs her services, but if you or someone you love does…SHE IS THE BEST!!!.

Compassionate Attorney
Lennea Cannon is beyond compassionate yet ready to fight for you and your children. My "family friend" attorney that I went to when my husband of 20 years decided he wanted a new life…left me with a mess. Lennea has been amazing and helping me be strong for my kids. If you or anyone you know needs help with family law….she would be my first call!!!

Outstanding attorney!!
There truly isn't enough space in this review to fully explain Lennea's qualities. I was involved in a year long divorce/child custody case. The biggest thing Lenena brings to her clients, is peace of mind! First and foremost, she is a lady that is of the highest integrity, and moral code. As an attorney, Lennea is truly talented in her field! She is ALWAYS prepared; she will without fail, show up to whatever there is, with evey detail in line, and ready. Lennea has the ability to see all the angles on the field, and she is never caught offguard! She knows the law, she knows the court system, and she knows how opposing council will act. She is extremely fast thinking, and able to act upon that, should the case dictate. These types of cases are always stressful, and never offer much in the way of stability. Lennea is extremely realistic with her clients. She is habitual in her approach of not ever claiming to be able to do something, and then not being able to produce. In this, you will most likely never be dissapointed. She is fantastic about always keeping you informed, and in the loop of what is going on. You are never in the dark with her. In everything I have written, there is truly so much more! If you want the best in the business, Lennea is without a doubt the person you should be considering. Thanks Ms. Cannon!

My divorce wasn't as painful as I would have thought, and I know a lot of that is due to her preparedness and knowledge of the law. I really appreciate the flexibility I was provided financially. I truly feel like my kids and I can move on with our lives now, and be happy. That wouldn't be possible without her!

Why I Wouldn't Recommend Lennea Cannon's Legal Services
As someone who has never left a negative review for an attorney before, it pains me to write this, but I feel that the public needs to be aware and cautious about my experience with Lennea Cannon. Despite paying her an additional retainer, she demanded further payments, citing a chargeback issue. Though I managed to save up the necessary funds and pay her again, it turned out that she had already received the initial payment, which caused my bank account to be in overdraft for 75 days. Throughout our interactions, she also failed to communicate effectively and was frequently dismissive and rude. When I suggested a fee arbitration service, her responses became increasingly hostile. To make matters worse, she withheld excess funds without explanation, which I found unethical and frustrating. Given my experience, I urge anyone considering her services to conduct thorough research and proceed with caution. While it is concerning to see positive reviews on Avvo, my personal experience was far from positive.
