"Great advocate, great outcome"
Jennifer and her staff were so responsive, professional and determined to help me. Jennifer was very thoughtful and patient as she explained the complexities of my case and the process. I felt like she had my best interests in mind every step of the way. She empowered me with the information I needed to choose whether or not to take an offer or pursue other avenues. In the end, she was a determined negotiator and I felt like she helped me get justice for my case. I was very happy with the outcome and with the advocacy she provided. I would recommend Dixon & Cannon to friends, family and colleagues.
