Mr. Kurt Laurence Dixon: Attorney with Riddle & Brantley, LLP


Kurt Dixon joined Riddle & Brantley in 2010. He began practicing law in 1992 in San Francisco, California. At that time, Kurt defended large corporations such as Cessna, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, Bic Corporation and many of the well-known automobile insurance companies.

In 1994, Kurt came to North Carolina and primarily represented Wal-Mart Stores until he decided that he would rather represent the injured person rather than the corporation or insurance company. Kurt made the switch in 1999 and has represented people that have been injured by the negligence of others ever since. He works in our Raleigh office but handles cases from all over North Carolina.

Education and Professional Experience

Kurt was born on June 2, 1962, in Kensington, Maryland, but has also lived in Mississippi, California and Virginia. He graduated from Herndon High School in Northern Virginia in 1980 where he was quarterback and team captain of the high school football team. For college, Kurt attended the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. While at Navy, he started on the football team as a defensive back.

After graduating in 1984, Kurt joined the United States Marine Corps. He served for five years as an artillery officer and was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal for “superior performance of duty.” Kurt then went to law school at the University of California at Davis where he was a Senior Research Editor for the Law Review. He graduated in 1992.

Memberships and Accolades

Kurt has handled many types of litigation in his career but the case that received the most attention from the media involved a botched heart and lung transplant at Duke University Hospital. Kurt was called in soon after the unfortunate mistake and was interviewed by the national media and made appearances on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Early Show and CNN. Due to his work on the case, Kurt was asked to participate in a press conference on Capitol Hill to help fight pending legislation that would limit a person’s right to recover full compensation after an injury caused by medical negligence.

Kurt lives in Cary, North Carolina with his wife of 32 years. He is an avid runner, bicyclist and football fan and actually roots for all three of the local area’s teams and does not know what to do when they play each other. He is a very proud of father of two boys and a girl, all in their late twenties.
