Lance O. Mixon is one of Mississippi’s preeminent attorneys whose practice focuses on driving under the influence (DUI) and criminal defense litigation.  He is a graduate of The Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminology.  Lance received his Juris Doctor from Mississippi College School of Law.  He is admitted to practice in all Mississippi state courts, the United States District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Mississippi, and the Supreme Court of the United States of America.  His practice consists of both the trial and appellate litigation of DUI and criminal cases, and he has handled matters across Mississippi in numerous municipal, justice, county, and circuit courts, spanning more than seventy (70) counties as of early 2015.  Lance has also represented a client in a criminal case on a pro hac vice basis in Alabama.  He has handled appeals in the Mississippi Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.  Lance’s reported cases include Gilpatrick v. State of Mississippi, 991 So. 2d 130 (Miss. 2008), which was decided by the Supreme Court of Mississippi, and Deeds v. State of Mississippi, 131 S.Ct. 150, 178 L.Ed. 2d. 37 (2010), which eventually made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. 

While in law school, Lance was a law clerk for his mentor, nationally renowned attorney DUI defense attorney Victor W. Carmody, and is now an associate of the Carmody Law Office, based in Flowood.  He is a proud member of the prestigious National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), where he attends the annual summer session at the Harvard Law School, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL).  Lance frequently attends numerous seminars about the defense of DUI cases across the United States, and he regularly instructs at seminars in Mississippi on topics such as field sobriety tests and DUI case law and legislation.  Lance has received advanced training related to the Intoxilyzer 8000 breath testing machine, and is also certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing.  Attorneys from around the state routinely contact him for advice and insight on DUI law, procedures, and strategies in representing citizens accused of DUI.

In 2010, The National Trial Lawyers (formerly known as The American Trial Lawyers Association) included him in the selection of the Top 100 trial lawyers in the state of Mississippi.  Since 2011, he has been a "Rising Star" in criminal defense of Super Lawyers.

 

Lance’s expertise in DUI law and criminal defense also extends to his writing abilities.  He is a co-author of Mississippi DUI:  Law and Practice, a publication of Thomson-West, Understanding DUI Scientific Evidence, 2010 Edition, by Aspatore Publishing Company, and Mississippi Criminal Trial Practice Forms by Thomson-West. 

 

Most of Lance's clients who are charged with DUI stand to lose a great deal:  driver's license, job, career promotions and progress, academic opportunities, clean record, and reputation in the community.  These are things that are additional to the mandatory sentencing laws which courts are required to impose, which consist of, among other things, jail, fines and court costs, attendance at alcohol safety education classes, etc..  Not only that, a criminal conviction for DUI in Mississippi will result in a permanent conviction which can NEVER be expunged from one's criminal record.  The long-felt ripple effect of a DUI conviction all-too-often results in loss of employment or modification of employment, adjustments in vehicle insurance (which includes MANDATORY SR-22 high-risk insurance in order to reinstate the driver's license), and a negative social and professional stigma.  Groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) have contributed to a widespread belief that a DUI offender is necessarily an alcoholic, a deadbeat, and a potential killer (in an alcohol-related car accident).  Lance knows and understands that this is far from the truth.  The overwhelming majority of his clients are first-time offenders who have never been in trouble before, much less charged with a crime.  However, Lance also represents subsequent offenders and those charged with felony DUI involving injuries or deaths.

 

Lance has represented clients ranging from nearly all walks of life:  construction workers; truck drivers; military officers; college students; SEC student-athletes; law students; medical students; doctors; nurses; pharmacists; business owners; and other attorneys, just to name a few.  He firmly believes that DUI law and procedure is at the forefront of the erosion of many constitutional rights in the criminal justice system:  the presumption of innocence; the 4th Amendment protections which encompasses traffic stops, searches and seizures; the 5th Amendment right to silence and against self-incrimination; the 6th Amendment right to a lawyer; the disappearing right to a jury trial; and the basic, fundamental due process rights to fairness in criminal proceedings, among many other things.  The crime of DUI, however, is a crime of opinion.  Most often, a law enforcement officer will make an arrest based on less-than-compelling, inconclusive evidence of intoxication.  It is rare that the officer will interview a single witness regarding the alcohol or drug consumption of a suspect, even if that witness is seated in the passenger’s seat of the suspect’s vehicle.  The officer forms an opinion that a driver is “under the influence” based on ambiguous evidence such as bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, smell of alcoholic beverages, performance of field sobriety exercises (if any), and the manner of driving which led to the traffic stop.  Most often, the officer will attempt to verify his or her opinion with a chemical test of the driver’s breath (most common), blood, or urine.  The testing devices for these things have numerous flaws, and the procedures and methods in which the driver is tested can sometimes produce erroneous results.

 

Very few things are as professionally satisfying to Lance as having successfully defended citizens whose DUI cases many other lawyers thought were unwinnable.  Described by his colleagues in the legal profession as intense and tenacious, Lance’s personal life experiences, his values, and willpower in the pursuit of justice has molded him into an inspired and relentless trial lawyer.  On one occasion, an assistant district attorney, who was attempting to dissuade a witness from testifying against one of Lance’s clients, referred to him as “a shark” who would “sink his teeth” into her if she took the witness stand.  His client avoided a possible forty-five (45) year prison sentence.  Lance credits his involvement with the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), in which he annually attends the summer session at the Harvard Law School, for much of his success in these complex endeavors.  Lance's trial skills, trial performances, knowledge of criminal trial practice, accomplishments and principles helped earn his selection by The National Trial Lawyers as one of Mississippi's Top 100 trial lawyers.

 

While the majority of Lance’s cases involve DUI, he has also handled criminal cases including, but not limited to:  assault; malicious mischief; manslaughter; money laundering; murder; possession of cocaine; possession of controlled substances; possession of marijuana; retaliation against public officials; shoplifting; solicitation of prostitution; and trespassing.

Mississippi officers sometimes use the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test as part of a DUI investigation.  Here is a brief clip showing what "distinct and sustained nystagmus" looks like.  "Distinct and sustained nystagmus" is one of the clues of HGN.

Dui dismissed with prejudice
Oct. 2021 i was arrested in RANKIN COUNTY and Charged with DUI. im a truck driver (CDL Holder) so my license means the World to me! I googled the BEST dui lawyer in rankin county and Mr. Lance Mixon information appeared. I must admit, googled didn’t lie.

As my court date arrived (9 months later) we won the case and all charges were Dismissed with prejudice! Mr.Lance is very educated, knows what he’s doing, and very professional. If you walk in the court room with Attorney Lance Mixon, they know you mean business!

Keep calm and call Lance
My spouse and I contacted Lance after I got arrested by an aggressive cop on a power trip. I had never gotten so much as a parking ticket before my unfortunate encounter with this rookie law enforcement officer who arrested me for allegedly speeding and for not pulling over as fast as he wanted me to. (I made no effort to evade the officer. I was not driving recklessly. I communicated with him about what I was doing; I just didn’t see a good place to pull over, and he rushed to judgment in a big way). This incident resulted in my being forced off the road by a slew of officers where the hot headed arresting cop decided to show off by cuffing me, accusing me of resisting arrest, putting me in the back of his police car, towing my car, and booking me/taking my picture at the station. At the time of the incident, all I was trying to do was pick up my sick child from school. Worst day of my life. My wrists hurt for 2 weeks after the incident, and I had nightmares for months afterwards about being locked away and unable to raise my children due to being in jail. The only remotely positive thing that happened was that the judge made the cop release me after he booked me, so I didn’t have to get bailed out or go behind bars. Enter Lance. He met with my spouse and me to assess the situation. He was expensive, but we paid him because he had good reviews and we hoped he could get the arrest off my record. The whole situation with the cop was enraging and mortifying, and I wanted someone objective with a clear head who knew the law to sort it out for me, so that’s why we hired Lance for the job. Lance gathered evidence from the event, was very sympathetic, and represented me in court. Most of the other lawyers in court looked sketchy - one of them didn’t even show up for his client. Another lawyer badmouthed his client to the judge and made no effort to fight for him; then his client got arrested, which was mortifying to watch. In contrast, Lance looked clean cut, tailored, together, and like a smooth professional. Lance advocated for me and spoke to the DA on my behalf. He spoke up for me in court with the judge. He was very calm and composed. I was advised to plead guilty and told that in exchange for my plea that the judge would non-adjudicate my case (I.e. throw it out), which he did. I had to pay the court costs (I.e. tickets), lawyer fees, and car tow fee from the arresting incident though which altogether was in the thousands sadly. However, a couple of weeks after court Lance got the judge to expunge the incident from my record at no additional charge. So, I can say I have never been arrested now because an expungement means a return to before the incident as if it never happened. I would definitely recommend Lance. He was much more responsive fo messages from me than I hear lawyers typically are which was certainly appreciated. He was kind, respectful, and polished. This was my first time hiring a lawyer. The court room is definitely his wheelhouse. If you ever get arrested, just keep calm and call Lance. I will forever be grateful to him for what he did for my family and me.

My case was dismissed and not one time did he ever make me feel uncomfortable! I would recommend Lance to anyone that needs legal services. I WILL FOREVER BR THANKFUL FOR HIM!

The best
Lance just took on 4th DUI charge, which is mandatory minimum 2-10 years, and got it dropped to 1st DUI misdemeanor. In Rankin county of all places. He is very thorough, super attentive, easy to work with and keeps you updated at all times. He obviously knows the laws and procedures through and through and has a good working relationship with the prosecutors and DAs. I have only seen this level of professionalism in movies before, never in real life.

Charges Dropped. Highly Recommend!
I've been meaning to write this review for quite a while. Lance was a life saver during my legal troubles. I was dealing with a misdemeanor charge that had potential for 1 day in jail during the beginning of Covid. Needless to say, I was crazy stressed and dealing with legal issues is not my normal. Even contacting other lawyers was a frustrating process, but Lance was great at being responsive and making me feel at ease. He had confidence in the situation and his abilities while still being realistic about possibilities and put my over-anxious mind at ease. He was able to get my charges completely dropped. I highly recommend him, not only because he delivered but because he is professional and reliable. You will not regret hiring him. Thank you, Lance.

Called on him when I got involved in a legal situation while working
CDL truck driver from Louisiana and I was accused of possession of drugs at the weigh station entering Mississippi in my commercial 18 wheeler. I was immediately fired even though I tried to explain it was not what it looks like. I was fighting an up hill battle immediately of being presumed innocent until proven guilty. While sitting there trying to figure out what I was gonna do next I did my research and hired the best lawyer I could find and I’m glad I did. His initial consultation over the phone was even before being retain by him was very through and he is very polite, considerate and the best at what he does. If I had to do it again I would retain him and urge others to do the same!! I was in danger and did lose the career I worked hard for and I needed the best. As soon as I could he recommended me to take a drug test, which I did and passed. I believe this quick thinking was crucial to getting the charges dropped at my FIRST court appearance and for me get back to work and act as this never happened. Thank you Lance, the respect you gave me and my case is more than I could have imagined. I am very thankful for you

Case Dismissed!
I am having an intricate summing up this review from the staggering experience I have had as Lance's client. From the initial consultation to the dismissal of my DUI charge, the entire experience has been a smooth sail. I am beyond grateful and thankful I went with my instincts. I could not suppress a triumphant smile even if I wanted to! Lance has always responded to any questions or concerns if I had any! He conventionally reached out to me with any updates or details about the case. I was never once dissatisfied or regretful during this process! If you are probing for a lawyer and reading this review, just stop here and give him a call, you will not be disappointed!

Honest, efficient, effective
I hired Lance Mixon after a friend recommended his services. I had consulted with other attorneys before choosing Mr. Mixon and am very pleased I had the opportunity to work with him and his team. He guided me through the DUI process as simply as possible. He is efficient, honest and his approach to my case ultimately saved me from conviction.

DUI Charges Dropped
Mr. Mixon handled my case in a professional and orderly fashion. His fees were reasonable as he had to travel to North Mississippi on several occasions to defend my rights. He ultimately got my charges dropped because he knows DUI legislation to the letter of the law.

Lance Mixon
Last year we hired Lance Mixon to handle our daughter's DUI case which was recently resolved with a good outcome. He was great to work with - professional, knowledgeable, meticulous and understanding - pretty much everything you want in a lawyer. He kept us informed and when we had questions or concerns, he was quick to respond. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

DUI Charges Dropped
Mr. Lance O. Mixon is very professional, I was lucky to find him after looking up on the internet just how serious these charges are, I began looking for an attorney to insure I didn't repeat my mistake. Mr. Mixon explain in great detail what a guilty charge would cost financially plus the time that would be consumed, plus the possibility of affecting my job. Mr. Mixon started to work that day on my case. That being said, the outcome was "nolle prossed" which means "not prosecuted" and dismissed in basic language. I could not have ask for a better outcome, up until the court date Mr. Mixon kept me informed all along the way. Also when Mr. Mixon ask me to do something....... that would help my case I did it he is the expert in this area. I highly recommend Lance Mixon as a defense attorney.

DUI LAWYER
I was very pleased how Lance Mixon explained the process to get his clients a individual trial. He has a very strong track record in winning his clients case. He was the best staying in touch with me explaining the steps of different courts and how he works with appeals, finding the mistakes law enforcement normally make. My charges of DUI refusal test were dropped before my court date. He is very passionate and personal with his clients. Lance charges more than the average lawyer but the absolute best at what does.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Mixon handled my case with utmost proficiency and professionalism, and one would be pressed to find a more competent firm or attorney. His grasp of DUI/DWI law was perplexing and I would highly recommend his "services".

Lance Mixon
I first met Mr. Mixon in May of 2011 after a charge of DUI first offense. Not having the slight direction of how to proceed, Mr. Mixon provided exceptional advice and counseling on the matter. He thoroughly reviewed my case, critiqued the Intoxilyzer 8000 results, and subsequently filed a motion to exclude the BRaC results. After the motion was filed, the case was dormant for four years. At my request and consent, Mr. Mixon contacted the DA to have my case "revived" and/or moved to trial. This process taking several phone calls and emails on Mr. Mixon's behalf to the DA. Mr. Mixon always kept me informed and updated on the latest news and, once the case was dismissed, provided copies of all the case documents that I needed. I feel that Mr. Mixon's passion for DUI defense shines in his work. He gave me a peace at mind after one of the worst situations in my life, and I highly recommend him to anyone who has been charged with a DUI.

Endorsement of Lance Mixon
Lance Mixon is one of the best DUI attorneys in the state of Mississippi. Mr.Mixon and i recently consulted on a case together. He has a through understanding of what to do to help his client navigate the process of dealing with a DUI charge.

A consummate professional. Thorough, tenacious. Could not recommend more.
Mr. Mixon was beyond excellent in providing legal counsel for my recent DUI First offense. After overwhelming myself in research of defense attorneys that first week following the citation, I had contacted more than a few local offices about my legal situation. Lance's office returned my call promptly, and set up an initial meeting the next day. I remember leaving that first meeting thoroughly impressed by Lance's passion for DUI defense, his extensive knowledge of historical precedents coupled with more recent rulings throughout the US, and also by his active role in bettering his professional community that shares such passion for DUI Defense law. Throughout the few months from citation to my court date, Lance was proactive, responsive, and informative every step of the way. On my final court date, I learned that one can actually be tenacious while also remaining pleasant and entirely composed. His approach was thorough, hard hitting, and most importantly, effective. This professional display of ability that day was so impressive, it managed to rouse the day's bailiff, who admiringly gestured over to me just to ask my lawyer's name, and I watched as the bailiff's face shifted from admiration to intense concentration as he struggled mightily to retain what he'd just been told. Again, I really could not recommend Lance Mixon any more highly as your defense attorney. He will most certainly receive anyone I meet that finds themselves in the unfortunate situation I found myself in.

"Attorney Mixon is an excellent practitioner. I have litigated in concert with him and as opposing counsel in numerous cases. He is honest, maintains a good rapport with his clients, attorneys and the courts. Perhaps his most prominent asset is his ability to absorb statutes and cases - which, keeps him on the cutting edge of defenses available to his clients. I would not hesitate to retain him."

"I have been fortunate to work with Lance on numerous cases over the last few years. He is one of the most dedicated attorneys I have worked with, not to mention his extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to DUI and criminal defense. But he also has a real gift when it comes to legal research and citation. Together, these traits make him a relentless and effective advocate for his clients. I would highly recommend Lance to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney, and especially someone charged with a DUI."
