David R. Cannon

As a criminal defense attorney, David has negotiated numerous plea agreements, tried more than 400 criminal cases and handled more than 20 criminal appeals. His successes at the trial level include the reduction of felony charges into misdemeanor charges in a case involving the stabbing of a Sherwood police officer and the achievement of a hung jury in two trials for a client accused of rape. His appellate victories include a reversal in a drug case involving attorney misconduct and a victory in another case involving Fourth Amendment search and seizure issues.

A founding member of the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (AACDL), David has distinguished himself by assuming several leadership roles. In 2008 and 2009, he took on the responsibilities associated with board membership for the organization. In 2010, he served as president elect and in 2011 he was elected president.
