Excellent Business Attorney

I am a colleague and a client of Dixon Howell, who I have known for 7 years. Dixon has an excellent reputation in the community as being both insightful and pragmatic, which is why I chose to associate with him personally and professionally, and chose him as my business attorney for my 20 person law firm. Dixon did an excellent job in reviewing and providing input regarding our buy-sell agreement, and I would be happy to use him again. I highly endorse Dixon Howell!

Incorporation, Contract Law or Meaningful Advice
Dixon Howell is THE Right Choice

Our firm has been using Dixon Howell’s law firm for all our agreements. Dixon is a good contract lawyer and they are just hard to find. I was particularly impressed with his ability to point out potential pitfalls and areas of risk – this much-needed feedback helped us shore up the risk on mission critical contracts.

We have been using Dixon Howell’s Firm for all our legal agreements and contracts, and we will be using them moving forward.

Dixon also provided advice on a civil dispute. He was a great asset to us during the early stages of this dispute, thanks to his words of advice, he gave us sanity to navigate the process and set our expectations until an insurance appointed attorney was assigned.

If you are currently looking for a business law attorney, I recommend you contact Dixon Howell.

Money in the Bank

With Dixon's advice, recommendations, and implementation. he has saved both myself (and friends that I have recommended) money in current and possible future litigation. He has helped in the setting up of S-Corporations, LLC's, employee manuals and buy sell agreements. His office is inviting and I felt he listened to my concerns and help me to understand how to minimize my exposure.

With his help I feel I have more "Money in the Bank".
