“Small Town Service. Big City Experience” is a promise we make to our clients. When we tell our clients, “We’ll take care of you,” we mean it.

Our firm was formed by first cousins Sam Dixon and Sanford Thompson. Our attorneys were born and reared in Eastern North Carolina. Mr. Dixon and Mr. Thompson both worked for large Raleigh law firms that represented insurance companies and major corporations. They gained solid legal skills working on all kinds of large, complex cases. However, they were not satisfied at how impersonal big law firms could be, and they wanted to represent people, families, and small businesses. Mr. Dixon moved home to Edenton in 1990, and Mr. Thompson went out on his own in 1992.

For years before forming Dixon & Thompson Law PLLC, Sam Dixon and Sanford Thompson often teamed up, and they have represented many clients in Northeastern North Carolina. They saw a need in Northeastern North Carolina for a firm fully committed to delivering the highest quality legal work with the personal, individualized service of a small town practice so they formed Dixon & Thompson Law PLLC.
