Belleville Bankruptcy Attorney
The attorneys of Dixon & Johnston Law Office are seasoned professionals, each concentrating on specific areas of law in order to give our clients focused and in-depth legal representation. Having worked together for more than 20 years, Scott Dixon’s sole focus is in Social Security Disability law, while John Johnston works mainly in bankruptcy. Chris Smith, who practices both family law and bankruptcy, is an associate with the firm.
Scott graduated from John Marshall Law School in 1978 and has since helped residents of Illinois and Missouri with Social Security Disability and Social Security Income. He is a member of several professional associations, including:
· The National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives
· The Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis
· The St. Clair County Bar Association
· The St. Louis County Bar Association
· The Illinois State Bar Association
Scott is a practiced attorney with nearly 40 years of experience. He has received an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, an honor held by only 10 percent of attorneys. He has helped many clients apply for and receive Social Security Disability claims.
If you live with a physical, emotional, or mental disability that has prevented you from engaging in substantial, gainful employment for a year or more, Scott can help you apply for Social Security Disability benefits or appeal a denial of benefits.
John J. Johnston
John J. Johnston concentrates on Bankruptcy Code, family law, and foreclosure and loan modification assistance. He has been practicing since 1979 and has received bar admissions from the State of Illinois, the U.S. District Court Southern District of Illinois, and the U.S. Court of Appeals 7th Circuit. He has held significant positions in several professional organizations, including:
· Board Member of the Illinois State Bar Association Board of Governors

Like his partner, Scott, John has also received the AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®. He published an article titled “Family Law and the Bankruptcy Code” in the Illinois Bar Journal in 2006.
John is an expert at helping individuals and families in Illinois navigate the complicated legalese of the state’s bankruptcy and foreclosure laws. If you’re considering bankruptcy or are going through a divorce, he can show you how best to strategize and protect your assets.
When not practicing law, John enjoys doing charitable work. He is on the Board of Directors for the St. Clair County Children First Foundation (formerly President), and he is also the former Pastoral Council President of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.
