Lance O. Mixon was the first lawyer I'd ever had to hire. Never having gone through any legal previous legal issues, I was scared and in the dark on much of the procedure and judicial dealings. However, upon hiring Mr. Mixon, my worry was tremendously diminished. First, he detailed what services he could provide me, explaining that we would avoid trial at all costs for my situation. Then, Mr. Mixon met with me for a brief conference about potential penalties, what his initial thoughts were, and cost of hire. He continued throughout the process to keep me informed at each new detail discovered. He was always prompt when meeting with me, and he kept a positive attitude while still remaining frank and honest. Overall, I trust Mr. Mixon and would hire him again if ever I needed his field of expertise.
Lance was very knowledgeable and helpful. He consulted with me before we hired him and he seemed very experienced and attentive to detail. He was very thorough in gathering research for my case, he had a plan to approach my case from the beginning and kept me informed throughout. He thoroughly explained to me everything that was happening with the charges against me as well as the possible outcomes. I felt very prepared and confident going into court. And we ultimately achieved our desired result.
If you need a knowledgeable and competent representation in a DUI legal matter, I have to say, Mr. Lance Mixon is your man. He knows his stuff and has the resources and network necessary for success. Above all "I never thought that a DUI would be so, not so unpleasant to handle." However without Lance I'm certain my experience would not have been so delightful. It was like having a guardian angel walking beside me through fire and brimstone. Thank you Mr. Mixon, for everything!
Lance provided help with my son's alleged DUI in Mississippi. He was very helpful during a trying time in which our son was jailed overnight. Lance explained the process of the investigation and the legal proceedings in a way that myself, my wife and my son could understand. He was there with us every step of the way and eventually got the charge dismissed. If anyone is in need of an attorney for a DUI case, I highly recommend Lance.
Lance Mixon is the epitome of the lawyer that any client would want handling his or her case. First and foremost, Lance is intelligent and dedicated to the law. I was always impressed with Lance's knowledge of the law. He was quick to explain case law and statutes on a whim when prompted by my questions.
Additionally, Lance was always great about keeping in contact. Throughout the eight month time span of my case, Lance continually kept me informed and was always great about returning my calls. He truly takes a personal interest in his clients.
Finally, Lance is a fierce advocate. He comes prepared for and ready to do battle when he steps into the courtroom. Lance's uncanny preparation and intelligible tactics certainly serve him well.
With the odds staked against me, I made the best decision I could have made: I hired Lance Mixon to represent me. I would recommend Lance Mixon to anyone needing representation in a criminal court proceeding. He is an excellent attorney, and a great guy.
Lance is a awesome dui lawyer. He did a great job with me case.
His advice was second to none. He did his homework just as he said he would. Lance even gave me advice on another matter all together. Most lawyers wouldn't have. I consider Lance and friend and he has my respect without a doubt. If anyone needs a dui lawyer Lance is the man to call.
I cannot express the gratitute i have for Lance staying with my case and following through with it for almost four years. After the 1st trial and then an appeal, he kept working and saw the case through. He worked every angle that he could and because of his help and God's mercy I was able to get a 2nd chance that I will never take for granted. He is easy to talk to, will listen, and will work to to get the results. I sincerely hope that I never need to call him again but if I do or if I know someone else that needs help Lance is the man for the job!
I hired Mr Mixon almost 4 years ago and he handled my case with patience and with expert care. The results were better than I could've ever hoped for. There isn't a way it could've turned out better.
In March 2013 I was referred to Lance Mixon by a top DWI attorney from another state. I was told that if I wanted the best defense to hire the Victor Carmody Law Firm and talk to Lance Mixon. I called that day and spoke to Barbara and immediatly felt at ease. She had Mr. Mixon call me back and from that point I I felt like I had a " TEAM" working with me. We only went to court one time and my case was dismissed. Hiring Lance Mixon was the best decision I could have made!!
I hired Lance Mixon in May of 2012. I had recently been charged with refusal to take the breathalyzer and arrested for DUI. When this first happened, I like most people thought that this was the end of my career and would mess me up for life. I was told by the arresting officer that I didn't need an attorney, that I should just show up to court plead guilty and the judge would grant me my license back in 30 days since this was my first offense. I thought about doing this just to get it over with and so i could get on with my life, but a good friend of mine called Mr. Mixon’s office and explained my situation. At that time Lance showed such confidence and knowledge of the law that I decided to stand up for myself and not just let the officer ruin my life. So, I hired Lance and with his extensive knowledge and high confidence he was able to talk with the district attorney to get my refusal charges dropped and license reinstated. This month we had to go to court for the actually DUI charge - I have have to tell you that i was amazed at how professional and knowledgeable Lance was in court . Not only did he know the laws, he was very courteous towards the judge and the officers that stood as witness for the state. I was proud to have him represent me and will highly recommend him to anyone who ever needs a criminal defense attorney . We were able to get all charges dismissed and I was only without a license for 4 days.
