    Mr. Nixon helped me a lot. My case is complicated but he was able to manage it so I have minimal damage on my driving record and my finances as well. Also, he gave me a very valuable advise regarding another problem (small court lawsuit). Thanks a lot! I highly recommend Mr. Nixon for any type of legal work.

  • Used Mr. Nixon's firm for over twenty years. Best of the best bar none.

    Mr. Nixon has always been extremely professional, comforting in very stressful situations. We have always received the best possible legal advice in a timely manner even when his schedule was full. In addition, his staff has always responded to us in a professional manner. His firm is an asset to the State of Wisconsin. We really like this attorney.

    I have been using Jay as needed for more than 20 years. He's always been upfront on costs and expectations. He explains and does what he says he will do. I felt the need to post as the other negatives do not do him justice.

    First off he is so unorganized it's not funny

    He tried to get me to accept a guilty plea and do time in jail on a case that a much better lawyer later got reduced to a fine of $250.

    He was ale to court at the first hearing and couldn't remember my name when the case was called

    Whatever you due run from this guy he is the worst lawyer I have ever known a complete 0

    Jay K. Nixon’s response: “This is pure nonsense. I never represented any such person and would sue for slander if whoever posted this identified themselves.”
  • Jay treats you like a peer

    He didn't treat me like his time was worth more than mine and talked to me like a peer rather than a "less than informed" client. He was very understanding and at the same time forthright about those things that I would have to accept and grin and bear. He was open about fees and was informative about options.

    Posted by a Bankruptcy client

    I wouldn't recommend this attorney to anyone, not even if they were using him to sue ME! Very very poor communication, changed terms during his representation of us, left out many many KEY components to questions that we had, failed to tell us that some of our lenders had contacted him, on several occasions. When asking how to handle certain situations, we would get a simple explanation then when it would come time to handle said situation, the way to go about it changed, and some necessary information was left out all together. Simply a horrible experience all around.

    Jay K. Nixon’s response: “I do not believe that this was actually posted by one of my former clients. I suspect instead that it is harassment from an opposing party (creditor) whose debt I successfully discharged on behalf of a real client and who now seeking revenge because I did my job too well. To the best of my knowledge, no such person as this poster has never even employed my services. Bankruptcy attorneys are always approached by creditors during the preparation period prior to actually filing client bankruptcies, in order to verify representation. My clients specifically consent to such contacts in advance, and understand clearly that we will use these contacts only to verify the creditor information for the client’s paperwork. Unless the client retains me to negotiate debts rather than to file the bankruptcy, I do not engage in negotiation attempts with such creditors. For most clients, such contacts are far too numerous for it to be practical to relay detailed information to the client on each of them (unless the client retains me for negotiations instead of bankruptcy, which I am also more than happy to do).”

    Posted by a Estate Planning client

    My wife and I are college educated smart individuals but we have never created estate documents. We also have experienced some ugly family probate issues so took our estate planning exercise very seriously. We felt very rushed at our signing appointment. It was communicated to us that it appeared we had more questions than he had time. Also, Nixon had a gift of making us feel stupid on several occasions. Lawyers are in the customer service and document production business. I wouldn’t recommend Nixon to walk my dog, let alone create critical family legal docs.

    Jay K. Nixon’s response: “Although I provide estate planning services, it is not a large part of my practice. I often provide these services to clients who are members of legal services plans, where somewhat limited services are completely covered by the employer’s group legal services provider, and more elaborate services are simply not covered. While I am happy to provide complex estate planning services, I normally do so only under private retainer agreements rather than as a part of prepaid group services plans. My office employs state of the art electronic communications to keep clients updated minute by minute as we prepare their cases. However, clients who do not have email or internet access often need to be kept informed via slower, non-digital processes.”
