    Chris Fodor Owner, City & Country Winery Ltd
  • Dixon Legal LLP was recommended to our family by our Realtor when we were buying and selling our recent properties and we couldn't be happier with our experience from start to finish! We were contacted by the wonderful paralegal Sandra prior to our appointment and she sent us a very detailed email outlining exactly what to expect, what we needed to bring and a detailed breakdown of the expenses associated to closing costs. Sandra was prompt to respond to any questions we had and her experience and wealth of knowledge made the appointment efficient and painless! The staff communicated with us every step of the way to keep us updated and it was an incredible experience to know on closing day everything went as planned and we were new home owners! We highly recommend using Dixon Legal LLP for all your legal real estate needs!
