Annelore Cannizzaro, DAWN Affiliate Attorney, Kalamazoo

I am a DAWN Affiliate Attorney and have a law practice in Portage, Michigan. I was born in France, where I spent my childhood years. My family moved often, and I ended up in high school near Cleveland, Ohio. I spent many hours riding and taking care of horses and I now live in the country with my husband, three children, three horses, four goats, two dogs, three cats, ducks, turkeys, chickens and rabbits.

I am also a veterinarian and had a private practice in the Kalamazoo area for 15 years before going to law school. I now only practice law and love being an attorney. I enjoy counseling clients and guiding them through difficult decisions, and always strive to make personal, long-lasting relationships with my clients.

In addition to my law practice, I am a board member of South County Community Services, a local non-profit organization which provides food, transportation, and emergency assistance to families in need, and senior and youth programs in the community.
