I was very impressed with Mr. Dixon. I feel he did an excellent job of walking me through this process, explaining everything to me and stating the best way to move forward. Through everything he was always prompt with any questions I had and always very respectful. I could not recommend him more. Unfortunately I have had prior experience with personal injury attorneys who met with me at the beginning and then after several months told me things had settled. I was left clueless about the process and didn't feel like I was represented. I had a complete opposite experience with Mr. Dixon, feeling he went above and beyond for me, and I could not be more happy with the outcome.

When I was arrested on false allegations of felony violation of a domestic violence no contact order James Dixon exposed the truth and I was cleared of all charges and the case was dismissed. Jim Dixon has amazing attention to detail and an uncanny ability to expose lies and contradictions through a very methodical process of interviewing . This was in my situation what eventually lead to the dismissal of charges. Through out the whole nightmare Jim kept us informed of everything that was going on . He was always available for communication which can be very comforting at such a stressful time. When the state suggested a plea deal Jim never once encouraged me to take their offer. He was ready to fight for me at trial should duty call. One of the conditions of my release on bail was that I not leave the state . Unfortunately my job requires frequent travel . Jim was able to have this condition lifted and I even adjusted court dates around my work schedule . This was a huge help at a time when things were already bad. I actually lost one really good job as a result of the arrest .Jim was very compassionate , often times providing me with very positive advice and optimism . I feel he was very fair and honest with all of the fees I just can not say enough good things about Jim, a true professional in every aspect . Although I knew I was innocent all along. The criminal justice system can be very scary place, the wheels turn slowly . Having the right person in your corner is critical . I am so glad we chose Jim Dixon . I hope that I never need a lawyer again But if I do Jim Dixon is my man.

I have seen Mr. Dixon in action and he is a master in the courtroom. He came highly recommended in 2006 and I have taken things to him ever since. Jim is the guy you want in a criminal case for trial and for appeal. I would not hesitate to call on Jim Dixon again on Criminal matters.
I also have used Jim in a civil matter in the Court of Appeals. He helped to get the case back on track and helped get a brief in before the issue got out of hand. You will sleep better at night with Jim Dixon on the job.

For the past couple years I have had the pleasure of working with Jim on a very complex criminal case that we recently won. Words tend to fail me when I try to describe just how incredible he is - as an attorney and as a person. Put simply and after having spent nearly 25 years in this business, I feel very comfortable stating that Jim is one of the best criminal defense lawyers I've met. He is brilliant, funny, an incredible writer and devastating to the other side in the court room. He is honest, calm in a storm and tenacious beyond belief. Jim is truly an attorney's attorney. I endorse him without reservation in both criminal defense and personal injury matters.

I have opposed Jim on many cases over the years in the personal injury area. Because of the confidence I have in his abilities as a trial lawyer, I have referred clients to him when in need of a criminal defense attorney.
