Craig Nixon and his staff handled a delicate family situation for us in an extremely caring and professional manner that we will be forever grateful for. We had an extreme crisis on our hands and Craig stepped in as a friend and a lawyer to help settle our situation and leave everyone feeling relieved and appeased.
My brother has struggled with drug addiction for over thirty years and the situation escalated to the point of extreme elder and financial abuse against my parents. When me and my husband stepped in to try and stop the situation it created more family conflict and as a friend Craig made some legal suggestions which we eventually followed and which indirectly caused the situation to be rectified. He made different options available to us and gently guided us through crisis in a caring and compassionate way. When we made decisions based on his advice, he pointed out long term effects and possibilities of our decisions.
In the end his sound advice regarding wills, a family agreement and a trust fund for my brother appeased us all and I am happy to say that my family is back on stable ground. I give much of this credit to Craig Nixon Law Corporation and his professional, caring staff.
We enjoyed working with your company which we found to be both professional and top notch. We would recommend Craig to anybody.Kevin and Nicole Fischer
We found our experience with Craig and his staff to be professional and friendly. The process for our wills was pleasant and reasonably priced. We would highly recommend Craig Nixon law firm for any legal business dealings.Leroy Brown and Jane Morrison
Craig handled a commercial real estate transaction for us in 2014. He came prepared with checklists of everything we had to discuss and make decisions about, which led to professional, efficient and timely meetings. Craig did his due diligence and even though we did not follow all his recommendations he made sure we were aware of the consequences of our decisions. All in all, a very good experience.Mark and Dorothy Purdey
I was emotionally and mentally devastated by the sudden dismissal notice I received from my employer. I was coping poorly, feeling paralyzed, discouraged, fearing for my future, mentally exhausted from the stress, and feeling rejected.
When I first called Craig Nixon’s office, I was greeted by a courteous, warm and friendly receptionist who took my message. This may seem like a normal encounter for some people, but I cannot emphasize how much I was comforted and such a reception definitely eased my anxiety.
When I spoke with Craig Nixon over the phone, he was receptive and listened with compassion. I felt very reassured. Despite the uncertainties surrounding my situation, it was such a relief to know someone with vast legal knowledge “cared”.
As human beings, we can immediately sense when someone genuinely cares about us.
When I met Craig Nixon at his office, once again, the receptionist greeted me warmly as if I was a very special guest. I did not expect such a welcome from a law office!
Then, when I sat down with Craig Nixon to discuss my situation, he listened with absolute attention and interest, as if he had all the time in the world. With his complete sense of “presence”, he demonstrated a masterful art of communication, human engagement, and the delivery of realistic advice.
What I learned from my experience receiving professional advice and service from Craig Nixon’s office is that, as human beings coping with various challenges or stresses in life, we forget how service providers can make a huge positive impact on a client simply by their ability to listen and connect with sincerity, to empathize with patience and understanding, to encourage, inform and give firm guidance.
Craig Nixon also explored pros and cons with me, and asked the right questions that helped me to gain more clarity. I was made aware that perhaps more important than the case “details” is the “human element” that tends to get lost in many business situations, legal or otherwise.
Being involved in a crisis situation, such as a loss, break up, betrayal or termination, often we are shocked and emotionally traumatized.
In my case, I could not think straight, I was vulnerable, depressed for days and felt like a failure.
But I unexpectedly experienced a valuable lesson from Craig Nixon: He put things into perspective which helped me to accept and be more at peace with options presented to me.
And yes, in life, in legal conflicts, it is nearly impossible to end up with a perfect or an ideal outcome; but somehow the struggles, even injustices you may encounter are made much easier to endure because someone took the time to hear you, understand you, and demonstrated respect.
I witnessed such impeccable professionalism with Craig Nixon, and for this, I am made a stronger and wiser person. Thank you, Craig, for sharing your amazing gifts, expertise and dedication through your law practice.
I have no doubt the world is made a better place because you make a difference in people’s lives as you did for me.Kaira Potter
