Cannon Heyman & Weiss, LLP | Law Practice Concentrating in Affordable Housing and Community Development Law.
our mission/philosophy Cannon Heyman & Weiss, LLP is committed to providing high-quality legal representation to all segments of the affordable housing industry and community development. The firm is known for its responsiveness and effectiveness. We are dedicated to serving our clients with courtesy and respect and to the best of our ability. We work closely with our clients to develop creative, yet practical solutions to complex real estate financing and other issues that routinely occur in affordable housing and community development transactions. We do not stand on formality, and our “roll up your sleeves” work ethic has been embraced by our attorneys and staff and is well received by our clients. We pride ourselves not only on the reputation we have developed in our niche practice area and on the volume of repeat clients we are asked to represent across the country, but also on the desire of large institutional law firms to create strategic alliances with our firm for the rendering of legal services regarding the federal law aspects of affordable housing and community development transactions.
