Court case
Overall I couldn’t have asked for better representation for my case. Mrs. Nixon is an excellent lawyer who was always looking out for my best interest. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my case and I would give her a 10/10. Highly recommend!!

This lawyer saved my future. We all make mistakes but she was able to make sure that my mistake didn’t affect me for the rest of my life. Georgia Nixon was very honest and down to Earth with my situation and told me exactly what I needed to do and the possible outcomes. After the first meeting with her I had no doubt in my mind she would take care of business. I made the payment in the morning, and by that evening my case was dismissed. It took her one day to get things done. In regard to her costs, it was definitely the best investment I’ve made in my life thus far. I’d recommend her to anyone.

Attorney Nixon is informed, relatable and a great communicator. She is a straight-shooter and does not leave clients to face the "what's next" alone.

#1 Lawyer
My boyfriend and I ALWAYS use Georgia Nixon for any legal matter. She has beat traffic tickets, his drug charges, my dwi, and a few other cases. My boyfriend swears by her. When he first said he was hiring her for my dwi I was skeptical because I didn't know she worked with cases like this. When we got to her office the first thing she said was "I like to beat those. " And when it was done and over with she had it dismissed!!! I'm ecstatic with her work! She gets the job done every single time! Her rating is really a 20/5 because she goes above and beyond.

Excellent defense attorney
Ms. Nixon represented me in a case that I thought I had no chance of winning. She kept me informed through out the process. When the case went to court, she was very prepared and won my case. I am really grateful for her expertise.

The best attorney I’ve ever used
Ms.Nixon is such a great attorney! I’ve had to use her for various charges over the years for everything from serious drug charges to DWI to simple traffic charges. Unfortunately, I had to learn that all attorneys are not created equal. She was so knowledgeable and returned all of my calls. She’s awesome and after hiring some in counties she doesn’t go to, I really realized the difference. She also lectures and teaches other attorneys how to spot problems!

Saved me!
I don’t know where to start. I had really serious drug charges that i was guilty of some but not of all. I was facing much more than jail time! I was facing getting kicked out of my senior year of college and not graduating. I can’t say enough about how thorough she was. The guy sitting me next to me in court was so impressed he asked me for her card. She rocks. She fought for me in ever aspect!!!

The best attorney in High Point
Ms. Nixon beat my DWI charge! I had 3 attorneys tell me that there was no point in even fighting it. She listened to my facts and promised me nothing, but delivered the world. I would recommend get to anyone and have!!! If you use anyone else in Guilford County you are not getting the best representation!!

Insurance Claim
Georgia assisted me with an insurance claim against a minimum insured party that I was injured by in a crash. Georgia was easy to contact, communicate, and work with. Along with being easy to work with, she also did not make any false promises and got the best settlement for me. I have been able to see her work over the years and have seen her win several challenging cases. I would recommend Georgia Nixon to anyone and would hire her again!

Highly recommended
I was charged as a student and had to hire an attorney. I was very concerned with handling the situation without the help of my parents. Ms. Nixon took care of my issue so expertly. She kept great contact with me, told me what I needed to do and put me at ease. My co- defendant used another office and the matter is still not resolved and no one will call him back. I can’t speak highly enough about Nixon law.

Skilled professional
Ms. Nixon used her experience and knowledge of the law to get my charges reduced. The DWI would have ruined my professional career. She took the time to perform the proper research and investigation. My case had minor abnormallies that only a skilled lawyer could find. Ms. Nixon was open and available to discuss the case and provided the guidance I needed. I live on the other side of the country and felt like I was a block away.

Excellent Lawyer!
I feel very fortunate that Georgia was around to offer me all the help and assistance that I required in dealing with my legal case. She was clear in explaining everything that we needed to do, and she instilled confidence in me that everything would end up favorably, as it indeed did. I had a lot of questions, and I sought her advice on several occasions; and each time she was able to give me answers and reassurance. It’s easy to see why she is so highly regarded, and I would not hesitate to recommend Georgia to anyone.
