    • I do not recommend John Nixon.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Agriculture matter.

    After discussing a property boundary fence case with the attorney, I asked him to write a letter to a neighbor who failed to properly contain his livestock. Mr. Nixon chose to call the neighbor after I stated I only wanted him to write a letter for me. He then billed me for this time, along with 2 phone calls to a number that was not mine. (He said he wrote the number down wrong, even though he read it back to me correctly when he was given it.) When I finally was able to get in touch with him after 13 days, I requested a refund since I had seen no action on the case. When the invoice was received several days later, it was addressed to someone else.
    As the bill was for his call to the neighbor (which I had told him not to do as I wanted a letter written), and for the 2 calls to whom-ever, I cannot recommend this attorney. To avoid the same experience I suffered, I recommend you seek advice of another attorney.

    • I recommend John Nixon.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Contracts & Agreements matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had a contract with another company and they didn't pay like they said they would. We had done business together for years so I didn't want to sue them. Russell worked out the problem without filing a single page with the judge. I wasn't sure at first whether Mr. Nixon would be able to work things out because he's so young. I've had other lawyers in the past that immediately sued and dragged things out for years. Russell handled everything and got me my money in about a month. I was shocked that he worked so quickly. The relationship I had with the other business is fine and we're still on good terms. They say they respected the way Russell spoke to them and explained the options. He's now my business and personal lawyer. I'll never use anyone else.

    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was worried that I'd lose my job because of my arrest. After Russell spoke to the state's lawyer we were able to work everything out. Then he spoke with my employer and explained what happened. My employer later told me that they would have fired me based on the charges the court listed, but after speaking to Russell they decided not to. I would have lost my job, my house, and possibly custody of my children if Russell hadn't help me so much. I would recommend RUssell Nixon to anyone. He's great. He explains everything so simply that even i understood. lol. Hopefully i won't need him for anything in the future but if i do I know I can trust him to take care of everything.

    • I recommend John Nixon.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Russell did my divorce and he was great. He was very patient with me when I didn't know how I wanted things resolved. My husband was being a jerk and Russell stayed cool even when I was losing my cool. He always made me feel like eveything was going to be fine. Hire Mr. Nixon. He did a fantastic job and I would recommend him to anyone.

    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I was so worried about my criminal case, but Mr. Nixon help me to ease my mind. I went to two other lawyers before I found Mr Nixon and I won't ever use anybody else. He has a good way about him and I think that makes him better at dealing with other people, like the district attorney or other attorneys.

    I hired Mr. Nixon for a criminal case and he was wonderful. He kept me informed and took me through the process step by step. I would recommend Russell Nixon to anyone looking for a great lawyer at an affordable rate. I feel he charged a fair rate and worked for hard his attorney fee.
