Kathy is a great attorney! She's very well educated and understands your concerns from a personal point of view and not just as your attorney. She has a great reputation in the court and is highly respected by other the attorneys and judges. She handled two different cases for me and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome based on my circumstances. I highly suggest hiring Kathy if you are looking for an attorney for criminal charges.

I was a part of an incident that I never wanted to be a part of. The police had misinterpreted what had happened and I was facing felony charges that could have sent me to jail for a while and ultimately ruined my life. I went to a very good attorney, explained my case and even HE told me to go to Kathleen Cannon. From the moment we had our initial meeting, Kathleen made me feel like I was in good hands and that there was nothing to worry about. She is widely viewed as one of the most FEARED attorneys in all of San Diego. She knew exactly what to do, told me exactly what I needed to know and at the end of the day, she was able to get the charges dropped. There was never a time that I didn't know what was going on since she kept a very constant stream of communication every step of the way, whether it be through a phone call, email or text message. I understand that people are very skeptical about hiring attorneys and might not trust the whole legal system, but I can guarantee you that you absolutely WILL NOT regret hiring Kathleen to fight for your freedom.

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.
