About Us



Patrick, Harper & Dixon, LLP traces its beginnings to October 1, 1946, when four prominent Hickory attorneys created the law firm of Aiken, Patrick, Murphy & Harper. Each of John W. Aiken, Bailey Patrick, Joseph L. Murphy and F. Gwyn Harper, Jr., had successful legal careers; however, they recognized the unique potential in combining their skills and expertise to form a new firm committed to providing quality client service for their community. Mr. Patrick and Mr. Harper continued the practice after the deaths of John Aiken & Joseph Murphy, and in 1952 they hired a new young lawyer, Charles D. Dixon, as the firm’s first associate. After four years, Mr. Dixon became a partner, and the firm was renamed Patrick Harper & Dixon.
