One of Indiana's Most Respected Law Firms Since 1995 We serve clients in four core practice areas: family law, criminal defense, appellate practice, and civil litigation.
Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. is a legal practice founded in 1995 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The singular thread woven into the firm's founding philosophy remains true today: Every case has a specific story to tell; and to maximize the clients probability of reaching his or her objective, the legal advocate must commit the time necessary to learn its depths, dimensions and nuances.
Inasmuch, the firm's representation of clients is akin to an artisan's work. Each case is unique, and no one approach or technique may be universally applied to best serve the client to maximize the legal objective. For this reason, we start and handle every case where and how it makes sense to do so, even if that approach is unique, progressive, or a one-off.
Distilled, however, a simple, and now tried and true, recipe for success emerges: Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. closely partners with its clients to identify and/or clarify the legal need to synthesize the legal theme that will be consistently utilized for settlement or trial purposes. This necessitates open and frequent communication.
Once this is accomplished, the plan is executed; and collectively, exhaustively and aggressively, the firm employs and applies the legal tools necessary to reach a successful resolution or until the prudent courses of action is exhausted to the end of the legal objective. Over time, this model has been particularly effective in addressing complex civil and domestic cases, along with the balance of those in our core practice areas
