Look no further for expert legal representation
I was referred to Attorney Jennifer Dixon to assist in a high-conflict family law case. Jennifer was able to quickly get up to speed and resolve all outstanding issues within 6 months, a stark contrast from previous representation that in a 3 year period was unable to make any progress on multiple fronts. I have worked with multiple family law attorneys in NC as well as CT; Jennifer is far and away the most knowledgable and organized I have worked with to date. Family law cases can be stressful enough; save yourself significant stress and hire the right attorney from the start!

Divorce-Timely professional help when needed!
I sought basic help from Jennifer for a simple NC divorce that was underway with my spouse's attorney, but I had not obtained representation. I had a clear idea of what was needed and mainly wanted assurance that everything was proceeding appropriately. I fought representation from someone who would seek timely completion and explain delays clearly. Jennifer more than meet my criteria and kept me up to date or a regular basis. She is an excellent communicator who keeps an aggressive timeline. She also handled a simple domestic relations order that was nonetheless confusing to a layperson.

Highly Recommend
I found Jennifer through the EAP at work. During my initial consultation I knew I would hire her as my attorney. I needed someone who would be knowledgeable, professional, efficient, direct and transparent about the fees and I found all those qualities and more in Jennifer. I highly recommend her!

Outstanding legal representation
I went through a painful divorce where child custody was handled in NC and the divorce itself was handled in another state. To make matters more confusing, Jennifer took over my case midway through the divorce and custody as my original family law attorney retired and recommended her. She handled it like the professional she is. She got right up to speed, consulted with my divorce attorneys in another state and didn't miss a thing. Couldn't be happier with her and am not going to use her for estate planning.

Superhero Lawyer!
I quite recently was facing very dire consequences for a hefty speeding/reckless and endangerment charge; in a county notorious for being especially hard on offenders for that particular charge. Was quite possible and likely that my license would be suspended or even revoked, and that additional fines (on top of court fees) be demanded. I'm currently unemployed, desperately looking for work, live in a rural area without public transport...losing my license would have been catastrophic. Would have had no way to even get to the grocery store, much less travel from Hendersonville to Greenville and Asheville and everywhere in between as needed for job interviews and medical appts. There were multiple extreme extenuating circumstances surrounding, and which directly led, to my offense. Though legally they don't technically excuse my actions, people capable of compassion, understanding, and open-mindedness, MIGHT view my actions differently in light of the circumstances, and possibly treat a fairly common and serious offense with pretty standard, pre-set consequences a bit differently. Not the usual description of a DA, and I was not optimistic. However, Jennifer was somehow able to convince the DA to read my personal statement and fairly assess the circumstances at the time of my offense, as well as take medical conditions I was suffering from into account when determining what my sentence would be. I'm sorry to say I've never met Jennifer in person, because she must have magical powers of persuasion and the ability to convince people to view things from a different perspective. The DA was shockingly, and most gratefully, incredibly lenient with me. Jennifer must have STRONGLY convinced the DA to seriously consider the entirety of the situation; enough to, consequently, treat me with a great deal of understanding and compassion. I had begged to keep my license and offered to go to driving school, serve community service hours, ANYthing to avoid losing my only means of transportation. Jennifer persuaded the DA to DISMISS the reckless and endangerment charges, reduce the speeding ticket from 37mph over the limit to 14 over!!! No driving school, community service; just the standard court fees, and corresponding fees and points on my license for a 14mph over-limit speeding ticket. Words cannot describe the relief, elation and amazement I felt upon receiving her prompt response with the results of my hearing on my court date. I was sure I was doomed and so incredibly grateful such leniency was shown. I am greatly indebted to Jennifer for working so hard on my behalf with such a successful result. Now, I'm NOT saying you should make bad decisions and break laws expecting Jennifer can get you off. I am sincerely remorseful for my actions, fully aware of the devastation they could have caused, take full responsibility for them, and have, and will continue to take measures not to repeat them. I was in a very troubled state of mind due to grievous personal events and exacerbated medical conditions at the time, and my actions were completely out of character; would never have occurred under different circumstances. I am just so fortunate I hired Jennifer to take my case because she was able to make the DA see and understand all of that and convince him/her of my sincerity. I expected the worse in this situation, but thanks to Jennifer, I've not only been saved from being dealt devastating repercussions, but have also gained a bit of faith that with the right people involved, our justice system actually CAN assess each case on an individual basis, and is capable of acting with compassion and mercy. And Jennifer is most DEFINITELY one of those right people who need to be involved for that to happen.

The absolute BEST lawyer in Charlotte!!!
Jennifer did a great job of explaining the entire process of my divorce, alimony negotiations, and child support agreement. She was very professional yet aggressive at working through some rather difficult negotiations. She is detail oriented, extremely knowledgeable, and always responded to my concerns within the same day. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance.

Despite other cars speeding faster than I was when I was on my way home at 11 pm at night - I was the one pulled over, and for quite a speeding ticket despite it being my first. I can't explain the amount of frustration and stress this brought me. Luckily I stumbled upon this firm and a couple of months later, Ms.Dixon handled my case and I am beyond happy with the result. I can't speak much higher about this because I trust in their services and highly recommend them so please don't hesitate in working with them!

Great Service & Actually Listened
I went to Jennifer after paying a lot of money with an attorney that a friend recommended and having zero results. Jennifer listened to what I wanted and made sure to identify and discuss in a thoughtful manner [something the previous attorney was terrible at providing] and was very happy with her service all around. Would recommend to anyone in need of service etc.

Custody Battle
I came to Jennifer for a custody case. She walked me through all of the steps in what were to happen, what can possibly happen, what happens if I won (which we did) and how everything was broken down in regular civilian language, not "lawyers talk". She was straight forward and to the punch. She was kind and understanding of the sensitivity of my specific situation. She kept her word on everything she told me. And she won my case. I would recommend her to everybody, and I have!

Thourough and Quick Results & Hghly Recommended!
I had an unclear title to my personal home. This creates too many legal and financial barriers to describe here. Jennifer thoroughly researched the title issue and worked quickly to resolve the problem - I now have a clear title to my home and peace of mind that there are no related legal issues tied to my real estate, my home. Additionally, Jennifer stayed in contact with me throughout the process which I greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Jennifer Dixon for your legal matters.

Great lawyer...great results!
I recently hired Ms. Dixon to represent me at my unemployment appeal hearing. She handled my case with great knowledge and professionalism which resulted in a favorable outcome. If you are looking for an attorney that listens to you, answers all your questions, thoroughly explains all possible outcomes (good and bad), is responsive, courteous and experienced…look no further than Ms. Dixon.

Class A Representation
Received a speeding violation that originally was planning to contest or plead for lesser charges on my own. Several brochures came in the mail, and I was quite impressed with the letter from the Remington & Dixon firm. I rang to inquire and Mr. Brandon Remington answered. Impressive and informative he was, I decided quickly that these professionals needed to handle this matter on my behalf. A quick call from Jana, Legal Assistant, to get my credit card information and a scan of my ticket emailed to the firm was all it took to get this in play. Jana called back and said everything was in order and I would receive an email on my court date with the disposition. Ms. Dixon handled my case as described by Mr. Remington, with the favorable outcome I was hoping for. This is how you get it done. I highly recommend the firm of Remington & Dixon for legal representation.

Great representation!
I reside outside of North Carolina and received a speeding ticket on I-85. That traffic citation would have adversely impacted my driving record as well as future insurance premiums if I had elected to not contest the charges and simply pay the fine Ms. Dixon was able to secure a reduction to a lesser charge at a very reasonable fee, which will result in no points assessed upon my driving record and no increase in future insurance premiums. I would highly recommend Ms. Dixon for anyone seeking representation in a traffic related matter.

Ms. Dixon went to court for me for a bad speeding ticket and got it reduced greatly. I was immediately informed of my outcome after the court date and was very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her!

#Boss
So the worst thing that could have happened happend I was accused of some very serious crimes that I did not commit. Jennifer and her team came to my rescue they helped me get back into work while helping me clear my name. She is helping me establish custody of my child. I felt she treated me like family she was very courteous of my time and schedule she went above and beyond in representing me. I could tell from the very beginning that it was money very well spent. Her team kept me from serving 20 plus years in prison for these false charges. When speaking to Jennifer I felt like I was speaking to a friend a very knowledgeable one not to mention she cooked the plaintiff in court I was very impressed! I would certainly recommend her over everyone else I saw defending others in court. Jennifer made this awful experience very pleasant and at very affordable cost.
