At first glance, it wouldn't seem that prosecuting criminals and litigating personal injury matters would have much in common. But for Cynthia Simpson-Cannon, a former Assistant State Attorney, they share the most important qualities of all: reversing an injustice and advocating the rights of a victim. Ever since she graduated from the University Of Cincinnati College Of Law in 1999, Ms. Simpson-Cannon has been protecting, and fighting for, individuals who have suffered because of the misdeeds of others.
In her five years at the Office of the State Attorney in West Palm Beach, Ms. Simpson-Cannon, known for her tenacity as a litigator, gained trial-by-fire experience that takes most civil trial lawyers decades to develop. With little time to prepare for cases, she learned to think on her feet and to create her case strategies quickly and effectively. She also learned how to counsel and work with victims. These qualities don’t just come in handy in the civil cases she now handles; they give her and her clients a crucial edge.
At Simpson-Cannon Law Firm, P.A., Ms. Simpson-Cannon is involved in every aspect of the firm’s work and case it handles. Ms. Simpson-Cannon has also developed a special emphasis in legal research and writing. But for the Florida native and University of Miami graduate, a passion for law is not enough. Compassion for clients, and the drive to get them the results they deserve, is what makes a first-rate lawyer, and an outstanding law firm.
