Our Services

Through a broad range of legal disciplines, Evans & Dixon’s highly skilled attorneys leverage their experience and expertise in the following practice areas to meet client objectives:

Insurance Defense

Our civil litigation team offers excellent case management experience, superior advocacy skills and deep knowledge of emerging legal and regulatory changes that can affect the outcome of a dispute.

Business Litigation

When it comes to business litigation, the name speaks for itself: commercial and legal issues are two sides of the same coin.

Collections

Achieving the maximum returns on outstanding debts while minimizing potential risks requires persuasive skill, tenacity and a clear understanding of debt-related regulatory requirements.

Workers' Compensation Defense

At Evans & Dixon, we made our name on the strength of our workers’ compensation and employer liability practice.

Cyber Security

According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Incident Report, 25% of the time security incidents involve internal attackers (e.g. employees or contractors) and 75% involve outside attackers.

Labor & Employment Law

From the executive suite to the factory floor, businesses are only as good as their people. It’s a simple formula — but one that has become increasingly complicated by a diverse, highly mobile workforce and a complex web of federal, state and local regulations.

Healthcare

The U.S. healthcare industry is in the midst of a rapid, major transition from fee-for-service models to a performance- and value-based payment system.

Intellectual Property

In today’s economy, every business owns creative assets that, at minimum, require protection and, at best, can be exploited to realize their full market value.

Insurance Subrogation

The Evans & Dixon Insurance Subrogation group's extensive experience in trials, mediation and arbitration has resulted in the recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of insurance companies.
