Dixon & Cannon, You Simply Can't Do Better!.
The possibility of personally facing a criminal accusation had never even entered my consciousness, so when it suddenly became a reality several months ago, it was with fear and trepidation that I walked into the law office of Dixon & Cannon. I chose them based on the reviews here on CitySearch. After my experience, I agree 100% with the other reviewers. Simply stated, for criminal defense, you can’t do better than Dixon & Cannon.
I was a very naive, perspective client at the absolute lowest point in my life when I first met Jim Dixon. He took my naiveté in stride. Throughout my case, he patiently explained the law to me in great detail. He always advised me of my options, including an honest assessment of the benefits and risks of each approach. Five months later, I walked out of Jim’s office with a much greater understanding and appreciation of our criminal defense system. Oh… and incidentally, I walked out of the courtroom with a clean record!
I fully credit Jim with the success of my case. His years of experience in the Puget Sound area have provided him with a deep understanding of our northwest legal system. He personally knows the players (judges, prosecutors, fellow attorneys) in the different jurisdictions and when you observe his interactions with them, it is clear he has earned their respect.
Jim is also great at thinking “outside the box” when it comes to legal strategies. I felt like no option went unexplored. I watched him pour his heart into my case, on many occasions when he was outside the office and completely off the clock. It’s clear that he does what he does because he has a passion for the law and because he takes defending his clients very seriously.
Probably the most impressive aspect of my experience was the human connection I felt at Dixon & Cannon. Fran is the sweetest and most helpful office assistant I’ve ever met. You will likely want to give her a hug each time you see her. :) I always felt like Jim believed in me and was 100% on my side. Even when I made some arguably foolish decisions along the way, he supported me and patiently helped me to understand the error of my ways. And everyone Jim interviewed as part of my case, with the exception of my accuser ;), had nothing but good things to say about him. I only met Jennifer Cannon, Jim’s legal partner, on a couple of occasions, but it was immediately clear that she has the same passion for her work. I know Jim and Jennifer regularly conferred on my case and she expressed much happiness when it was resolved in my favor.
This is an easy 5-Star recommendation. Start your search for an attorney at Dixon & Cannon and you won’t feel the need to look further. You will definitely be in good hands!
Highly Recommend Jim Dixon (Dixon & Cannon). Whether or not you’ve made a mistake or been falsely accused, Jim Dixon (Dixon & Cannon, LTD.) is able to help. He has a detailed knowledge of the law and an extensive professional network of other attorneys and law professionals. He uses his knowledge of the law and the individual situation (including which court, prosecutor or judge is assigned), and the knowledge of those in his professional network to arrive at the best solution for the client. I know this from personal experience: on two separate occasions I have faced situations that had very serious potential consequences. Both times, without fail, Jim determined courses of action that lead to dismissals. He is supportive, personable and easy to work with. If you are facing a situation (either criminal or civil), I highly recommend that you contact Jim Dixon.
Best Attorney in Seattle.
I went thru one of the hardest times in my life, and facing up 2 years in prison. Having the odds against me, 5 people saying (all friends) that I committed a crime that I did not commit. I was desperately looking for attorneys that could help me. From a big list I narrowed it down to a few attorneys that I met in person. After meeting with Jim, I knew I was going to pick him. With his extensive experience and his great personality, I knew he was very professional and that he really cared about me and my case.
Jim Dixon was excellent in every aspect, at the time of the interviews with the people claiming I committed the crime, he was able to obtain a lot of conflicting statements from the alleged witnesses. All of this evidence was a definite factor for us to never pursue for a plea bargain and go for the trial. Just one week before the trial got a very tempting plea bargain, from 1 felony (assault 2) and 1 misdemeanor (assault 4), they offered me 2 misdemeanors (assaults 4) and they will be deferred in a period of 2 years, no jail time, some community service, after this such great deal, Jim was able to improve with his impressive negotiating skills to an Alford plea. This Alford plea greatly reduced the risk for a civil suit at a later time, this was a key factor for my decision. This kind of plea bargain is no offered very often and the reason I was giving this deal was greatly because of the impressive job that Jim Dixon had done with my case.
If you meet Jim in person, you will realize right away that he is a trustworthy and reliable person.
Jim Dixon is an excellent attorney and a great person. I could not had chosen a better attorney for my case.
Awesome Attorney. I was truly fortunate to have selected Jennifer to represent me in a personal injury case. This was a four year, and often arduous, process. The unique circumstances of my case required a unique combination of sympathy, practical legal knowledge, and judgment, which Jennifer never failed to provide. At every juncture of the process Jennifer was there with the information and guidance I required to determine mine, and our, next step. The final conclusion of my case was a fair, and more then satisfactory judgment in my favor. I would not have enjoyed this result without Jennifer’s efforts (and, I should mention, the efforts of her firm’s entire team). I could not more highly recommend her.
Wonderful law firm. James Dixon is AWESOME and so is his administrative assistant Fran!!! My son was not represented well by his first attorney and received an unusually high sentence. We sought out Mr. Dixon to appeal this sentence. He and his staff were wonderful to us and to my son during the long appeal process. Through phone calls and emails he kept us informed of every step of the journey. Can't say enough good things about this firm. Now that my son has been re-sentenced (to a lot less years) I am going to miss Jim & Fran.
They aved my son!!. Like severall reviewers on this site, my son was in legal trouble. he was charged with felony assault by dubious accuser. If convicted, my sons bright future would have been destroyed. Jennifer and company listened, comforted, planned with us, then set out to do everything they could for us. Jennifer kept us informed every step of the way. Her knowledge of the law is quite impressive and her dedication to clients is simply amazing. Jennifer and her firm got our case dismissed! Jim helped out also, and I will always be grateful to these two outstanding attorneys!!
Dixon & Cannon, Ltd. - Highly Recommended Law Firm. We were one of Jennifer's first clients! She did such a great job representing us in an injury case. Truly dedicated and out for our best interest every step of the way. Their staff is wonderful to work with as well. I would highly recommend this firm.
The Best Firm in Town!. Jennifer is very professional, knowledgable, and kind! She helped me with every aspect of my case and took her time until I understood what was being done. She was never pushy and always respectful. I would reccommend her to anyone who wants the best lawyer in town. She put her heart and mind into my case and I was very pleased with the results. I dont just consider her my lawyer, she is my friend and Im glad she was there to represent me. Her legal knowledge is superb and she knows the law very well. I would trust her with my life!! Thank you Jennifer.
Honesty, Integrity and True Compassion. James Dixon and his wonderful staff go above and beyond. Mr. Dixon is the type of attorney that phones his clients on a Sunday evening just to make certain that all of your questions and concerns have been answered and addressed. When you need to reach him, you can count on your call being returned. He is well known in the legal community. It made me feel great when I witnessed him entering the court room, only to see the prosecutor smile and stand to shake his hand. Mr. Dixon and Dixon Cannon receive my highest recommendation.
Need a very good attorney? Try Dixon and Cannon..
Jim did an excellent job of representing me in what could have been an expensive and lengthy court battle. He handled the negotiations with great care and was very well prepared. He kept me well informed as to what my options and risks could be. Jim Dixon is confident in speaking with the court and with his fellow litigators. I believe his professionalism and integrity showed during the help he gave me with my situation. Jim also kept me very well appraised throughout the course of my hearings of any and all changes. I am very pleased with the results.
I would recommend Jim and his colleagues at Dixon & Cannon.
