Get in touch
Most people don't like lawyers because we remind them of life's worst events - injuries, suffering, divorce, jail, or death. And don't forget bills - big ones! We understand. We've been there, too. We know that finding the right attorney to represent you is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer free consultations to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals, and your budget.
Nicky N. “Nixon” Daughtrey, Jr.
Hello, my name is Nixon Daughtrey and I'm the owner of the Daughtrey Law Firm. I founded this firm because I wanted to practice law in a different way.
In 2011, I said goodbye to my mother in August, when she passed away from cancer. In December of 2011, I said goodbye to my grandmother who passed away from cancer and a broken heart. These events changed forever how I look at life. I never imagined having to deal with two loved ones in the hospital at the same time. I thought I had done everything I could to plan for their passing, but I was not prepared emotionally.
I learned how hard it is for someone to Implement a well-thought-out plan when grieving. I probated both my mother's and my grandmother's estates personally. Standing in court as the attorney and the executor tore my heart to pieces. Every time I had to do something for their estates, I pictured my mother or my grandmother in my mind's eye. The smell of the paper, the look of the printing on the page, even seeing their names was difficult for me for a long time which prolonged the probate process.
When I got over my grief, I returned to the oil business, and guess what I discovered? I realized that I didn't want to spend my life drilling holes in the ground for a company that cared about getting oil out of the ground cheaply.
My goals had changed. I knew I wanted to help people. With this in mind, I opened my firm where we build lifelong relationships with our clients. We genuinely want to help you. We don't want you to be scared to call us because you think you will get a bill. We will not nickel and dime you to death.
Now, I help families and small businesses. I rarely charge hourly anymore, and I help my clients plan for success and avoid difficult times. A good estate plan or business plan is hard to execute when times are tough, a poor plan or no plan is nearly impossible to execute.
Some things are worth fighting for and I will fight for you. I have learned that careful preparation and planning can help you avoid most litigation. Even if the inevitable occurs, having basic plans and structures in place will put you in a better position to pursue or defend your legal rights than just working on a handshake or promise. I can't keep you from getting sued, but I can help you to be ready if you do get sued.
