Attorney Lannon’s great grandfather, Eugene Malone, started a law firm in Central Illinois which Attorney Lannon’s father, Richard James “Jim” Lannon, Jr., managed prior to being appointed Judge on the 13th Judicial Circuit, in and for LaSalle County, Illinois. Attorney Lannon’s aunt, M. Catherine Lannon, was the head of the Administrative Law Division of the Florida Attorney General’s Office for 33 years after clerking at the 1st DCA. His cousin, Laura C. Lannon, served as a prosecutor for Cook County, Illinois (i.e., the Chicago metropolitan area) prior to her untimely and unfortunate death. Hence, being an attorney is in Attorney Lannon’s blood.

Born in LaSalle, Illinois in 1974, he moved to Dedham, Massachusetts when his parents divorced in 1984. He attended school in Massachusetts from 4th grade to his senior year of college, having graduated from The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester in 1996. For the next 4 years, He worked as a sales representative for BellSouth Advertising & Publishing Corporation in Tucker, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Being a sales representative prepared him for being an attorney, for it is far more difficult to sell a product or service to an unwilling buyer than it is to demonstrate to a jury or a judge why his client’s position in the lawsuit is meritorious, why his client deserves to win, and why his client deserves to be compensated (i.e., paid damages).

Years of ExperienceWelcome to the Law Firm

I am intimately familiar with land use and zoning matters having handled thousands of them while City Attorney for one of the largest cities in Florida. As for my appellate experience, in addition to starting my legal career clerking for Justice Peggy A. Quince at the Florida Supreme Court, I have handled countless appeals at every appellate court applicable to Florida (state and federal) save the United States Supreme Court. Regarding commercial litigation, I have personally handled matters involving hundreds of billions of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition to being board certified by the Florida Bar in Business Litigation, most people fail to realize that a major city like Palm Bay is a corporation, a Florida municipal corporation. On average, my staff and I handled 330 cases annually. Please allow me the opportunity to help with your business litigation matter.
