Morning Mail: Remembering Dave Nixon
To The Editor:
I would expect that every one of us older members of the bar have stories about David Nixon, and all of them showing Dave to be one of the truly great lawyers in New Hampshire.
My experience, and one that I will always remember happened a few years ago when Dave, his wife Patricia, my wife Helen and I dined together at the Mile A Way restaurant in Milford. As we were leaving the dining room, walking towards the door, a middle aged woman rose from her table and rushed over. She said, “Are you David Nixon?” Dave replied, “Yes.” She blurted out, “I want to thank you for what you did for my mother 30 years ago. Your taking her case saved her life.”
Dave was embarrassed in that he didn’t remember her name or the case; he just thanked her.
How many of us would be thanked for our legal services 30 years later?
