Criminal Defense

If you need legal representation, the team here at Cannon & Associates has a wealth of skills, experience, and determination to fulfill your criminal defense needs. We have catered to a large variety of different clients with very different criminal allegations against them.

Our criminal lawyers could be able to help with your case if it relates to any of the following:

DUI Defense

We understand how much of an effect a DUI conviction can have on a client’s life, such as fines, license suspension, and even imprisonment. If you have been arrested and could be facing criminal charges, we can help you defend against DUI charges.

Our criminal defense attorneys can provide legal counsel and valuable assistance to our clients facing a DUI charge, including representing you in court, negotiating with prosecutors, and advocating for your rights.

We also help clients minimize the impact of a DUI charge on their personal and professional life and career and will help you in seeking the reinstatement of your license.

Drug Crimes

Drug crime charges can have severe consequences and may result in imprisonment, fines, and a criminal record that can impact a person’s personal and professional life. At Cannon & Associates, our team can provide valuable assistance to any clients who may be facing drug crime charges.

When it comes to drug crimes, we can build a robust defense on your behalf, seeking the best possible outcome, whether that is the dismissal of charges or reduced sentencing.

We will represent you in court, negotiate with prosecutors, and advocate for their rights. They can also assist with drug treatment programs and plea deals.


One way to avoid a permanent criminal record is to get your arrest history or criminal conviction history expunged.

When a record is expunged, it is removed from the public record entirely – and is then only accessible by law enforcement and legal entities should you be accused of another crime in the future. This means prospective employers, financers, educators, and other essential bodies will not be able to use it to deny you services, opportunities, or privileges. Once the record has been expunged for ten years, you can apply to have it destroyed entirely.

Expungement is available to all misdemeanor crimes, some non-violent felonies (excluding those crimes that place you on the sex offender’s register), and even some violent felonies if you have been wrongly accused.

To find out if it is within your legal rights to have your past charges expunged, call us today for a free consultation to discuss your criminal defense needs, and we can help you build a better future now.

Federal Crimes

Federal crimes carry severe penalties, including lengthy imprisonment, significant fines, and a criminal record that could ruin a person’s personal and professional life.

If you are facing a federal criminal charge, we will work on your behalf to fight the charges, providing the strongest possible defense. We will aim to have your charges dropped if possible, and if not, we will help you with sentencing guidelines, appeals, and post-conviction relief issues.

Military Defense

We have experience helping clients through issues relating to court-martial, administrative proceedings, and discharge upgrade requests. Our experience covers all branches of the military, such as the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.

Our team can also assist servicemembers with issues related to security clearances, military retirements, and veterans’ benefits.
