About John R. Nix, LLC

John and Tricia NixI am an AV Preeminent* Rated attorney who has been serving clients in Mobile and throughout Southern Alabama (including Baldwin, Washington, Clarke, Monroe, Escambia, Marengo and Choctaw counties) for over 40 years.

Earlier in my career, I worked with large firms handling litigation for major international corporations like IBM, as well as large industrial clients (for example, Ciba Specialty Chemicals, Georgia Pacific Corporation, Olin Corporation, Alabama State Docks Department), a Regional area hospital and a Mobile based national healthcare technology provider.

I opened the law firm of John R. Nix, LLC, in order to provide my clients with more personalized service.



I provide clients with legal representation marked by:

  • Versatility: In my career, I have handled everything from personal injury and estate planning matters to employment law for employers, and complex business law and litigation for companies of all types and sizes. My diverse experience has given me a unique versatility in handling all types of cases for my clients.
  • Efficiency: As a one-attorney operation, my law firm is able to cut through the red tape and inefficiencies often associated with larger, multi-lawyer firms. I provide clients with the same experienced, knowledgeable legal service with significant time and cost savings.
  • Personalized service: When my clients bring their legal issues to me, I put my heart into it, and I do everything I can to get the results they need.

I am also deeply involved with the legal and local community, earning a number of accolades and holding some distinguished positions, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • AV Preeminent* rating from my peers and judges, the highest possible rating in legal ability and ethical standards.
  • Alabama Defense Lawyers Association’s Board of Directors — 2007-2010
  • Adjunct professor – University of South Alabama in Mobile (Business Law) and University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa (Labor Relations Law)
  • From 2006 through 2012, John R. Nix has served as an instructor at the “Deposition Bootcamp” sponsored by the Alabama Defense Lawyer’s Association. During this three day seminar, held annually in Birmingham, experienced litigators train Alabama lawyers from throughout the State in the handling of Depositions.
  • Member, Christian Legal Association — 2000 to present
  • Certified mediator and arbitrator since 2004 – Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution**
  • Member, Ashland Place United Methodist Church — more than 35 years

John R. Nix ∙ Dedicated Family Man

John R. Nix and SonsAlthough I am certainly proud of my professional accomplishments as a lawyer, I am even more proud of my family. My wife of more than 35 years, Tricia, and I have three sons born in 1984, 1985 and 1986. They grew up hunting and fishing with me and have grown into fine young men. Although I have been quite successful in my practice, my office is filled with family pictures (including my first grandchild), and I consider my family to be my greatest success.
