Since that time, she has focused her practice primarily on clients who are individuals, small to medium sized businesses, local governments, and non-profits. She enjoys being able to bring her attention to detail and strategic analysis skills developed during her big-law training to clients who are looking for the flexibility and individual attention a small firm provides.
She understands that no two clients, matters, or situations are ever the same, and works to find efficient solutions that are specific to the client. This means that her clients get more from her than just the filling out of a form with their information. They get documents and analysis tailored to them and their particular needs.
Dixie earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Baylor University in 1997, graduating cum laude with a major in telecommunications and a minor in business administration with an emphasis in accounting. In 2002, she earned her Juris Doctorate, with honors, from the University of Texas at Austin. She started her legal career at Haynes and Boone LLP, in its commercial litigation section, and practiced there until she started Newnam Land LLP. In addition to her private clients, from 2008 through 2018 she represented the Board of County Commissioners for Las Animas County, Colorado as the County Attorney.
Dixie is licensed in both Texas and Colorado. She is a current member of the Texas Bar Association and belongs to its Business Law and Real Estate, Probate, and Trust Law sections. She is also a member of the Colorado Bar Association and is a Colorado Bar Foundation Fellow. As a member of the Colorado Bar Association, she held positions on the following Bar committees and boards: Executive Director Search Committee (2014), Joint Management Committee (2010—2014), Joint Budget Committee (2008—2010), and Board of Governors (2007—2009). She was also a member of the Colorado Judicial Performance Committee for the 3rd Judicial District (2011-2015).
When not working on legal matters, Dixie volunteers for various local organizations, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Wimberley Valley Chamber of Commerce and Wimberley Valley Radio (KWVH)—where she co-hosts a weekly radio program that explores all things tech. She also owns and manages a local yoga studio, where she teaches and practices presence and balance.
Dixie is married to Robert Land, her life and law partner. They have two vibrant children, of whom they are incredibly proud, a dog who thinks he is a cat, and a real cat who is a destructor of headphones.
