Hire her, you will not be disappointed
Rhonda is excellent. She is very down to earth & treats you like an equal. She never makes you feel judged or less then. Best lawyer in town to have on your side.

She is a spit fire
I had nine felony charges put on me with an extensive record I was scared to death made some bad choices, I decided for the first time ever I'm going to hire an attorney before even hiring her I called her on the phone and she must have talked to me 30 minutes and checked on all kinds of stuff for me made me feel so comfortable and then about 9 months later there was a warrant for my arrest and I decided to hire her two court dates later I walked out of that door but not having to spend one day in jail I wanted to hug her she's amazing this lady I would refer her with a five star that she is; matter of fact she's a 10 star. The thing is she's not only all about winning but before winning she's a mom with a big heart and she makes you feel like she really cares because she does. My husband and I we're so amazed we felt like we knew her all our life because that's how she makes you feel she's a fighter and she will not walk through that door without fighting for you and she wins believe me- with my felony record I should have got five years and I walked out of there without one day in jail thank you Rhonda we love you!

Make sure you call Rhonda first!!!
had some legal issues back in 2015 and calling Rhonda was the best decision I ever made. She is extremely knowledgeable and aggressive. Rhonda exceeded my expectations and I will definitely recommend her to anyone having legal troubles in Shasta county.

Blown away!! Don’t know how else to thank you!
Wow! Where to even begin! If you are looking for someone to represent you don't look any further. Like seriously. Rhonda has completely exceeded my expectations! She is truly such a beast and so confident and knowledgeable! Myself and my husband had some legal issues from about 4 years ago and ended up with warrants and when all seemed impossible after speaking to multiple lawyers, for multiple reasons, we met Rhonda and she is so reasonable and like stated before confident and knowledgeable, she made us feel so comfortable and she communicated with us great as well! The outcome was amazing and we are beyond happy and so appreciative for her services! I just feel like I have to share that you will not be disappointed! She is very straight forward and just knows her stuff! Thank you Rhonda!!! You are amazing!!!!

Peace of Mind
Ms. Hixon was everything I'd prayed for when looking for a lawyer to help my son with some legal issues in Redding. He was no longer there and she took care of everything, saving us tons of money and time traveling to court. She represented him well and he ended up with a very fair deal. She never shamed him or me for the problems he'd gotten himself into. Just excellent!

Start with Rhonda first!
Talked to many different lawyers; all wanted $1,500 or more to do what Rhonda did for next to nothing. She also got my fines as low as possible. Start with her first and save yourself the time and energy. She is great!!!

Review for Rhonda Hixon
When we received a recommendation to Rhonda Hixon, we were already several months into our case and things were not going well. Our case was one that everyone else that we consulted with had told us we did not have a chance to prove our innocence. Rhonda listened to us, thoroughly reviewed the facts and then did an excellent job in her investigations. She gave excellent legal advice during all stages of our dealing with her. Our case did go to trial, and after six days in trial, the jury came back with a NOT GUILTY on all counts. There have been several residual effects that had built up during the two years that we had been fighting, but even after the trial, Rhonda has helped in every way to clean up all of those items. She is a rare person of integrity and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of defense. She will fight for you.

Your lucky to have her.
Rhonda does not specialize in Family Law, but she helped me anyways with a complicated case. She is a rare find. She is conscientious, knows her stuff and is honest and straight forward. If you don't know anything about the law, you can rest assured you are in good hands.
