Nix Poet Attorneys has recently completed a new conference center in their Sherman TX law firm office, complete with state-of-the-art technology. These upgrades push them to the forefront of 21st century law practice capabilities. Dallas firms frequently seek to use the office and its amenities as a home base when trying cases locally in both Federal and State Court. These resources have paid off handsomely for our clients. Even though we are the new kids on the block, you can’t argue with our results. In the last year alone, we have negotiated numerous six-figure settlements and unlike many firms, most of that money actually ended up in our clients’ hands.

Courtroom success stems from a combination of trial experience, creative solutions and a commitment to winning. Our lawyers know every case is unique, and though some of the firm’s accomplishments are detailed on this site, each individual situation receives its own specific strategic analysis.
home_mid_page_block-3Our initial consultation is free, and most of our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. In other words, it won’t cost you a penny unless we recover funds for you. At Nix Poet Family Law offices, the lawyers handle the negotiations, not an assembly line of paralegals and former insurance adjusters. We are not one of the high-volume car wreck mills that advertise on television by promising results they can rarely deliver. We take great pride in that fact, and we pledge to never forget how lucky we are to have you as a client, not the other way around.


Criminal Defense

The presumption of innocence is the cornerstone of our criminal justice system, but it is a frequently forgotten concept, not just by the public, but attorneys as well. When you call Nix Poet Attorneys at Law, you can rest assured you will not be treated like a criminal, you will be treated as a valued client with fundamental rights that deserve protecting.



The dissolution of a marriage or divorce isn’t something anyone plans for on their wedding day. This unexpected bump in life’s road is an emotionally rocky event, and having the guidance and assistance from a knowledgeable and compassionate divorce lawyer is one of the few things that can make this struggle more bearable.

Regardless of what you do, where you live, how much you make or who you know, there is a chance you might find yourself arrested and prosecuted for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). If a night out with the guys, or one too many glasses of wine at dinner results in your unfortunate prosecution, you need lawyers familiar with the most recent strategies in defending DWI cases.
