Where We Come From

To understand what Dixon|James is all about, you need to know something about our namesakes: Alfred Dixon and James Harvey. They are my grandfathers. Alfred Dixon was a minister (like his father and grandfather before him) and a missionary who raised his young family in China while serving as church pastor and school principal. His life was focused on serving others in need. He was a passionate optimist, powerful teacher, and a persuasive communicator with a booming voice.

James Harvey played an instrumental role in the success of the railroad in the mid-century. He was responsible for trafficking trains and precious cargo to their intended destination. His intense knowledge of the subject, extreme attention to detail, and desire to deliver results as promised were expressed daily.

The experiences and combined qualities of these two men, and most importantly their commitment to integrity, respect, collaboration, precision and fearlessness, are the qualities imbedded in Dixon | James today. To honor their lives, the firm donates 5% of its annual profit to those in need.  Once again this year the firm supportedMake-A-Wish-Logo the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois, in its efforts to provide hope, strength and joy to children facing life threatening conditions.
