A narcotics prosecutor by trade, Mr. Nixon is currently the Director of a joint State/Federal HIDTA task force, based out of Miami, Florida, conducting long-term international money laundering investigations. As a prosecutor, Mr. Nixon has reviewed thousands of arrest affidavits, drafted hundreds of search warrants, documented countless confidential informants, and tried over 100 cases, including murders, drug trafficking offenses, robberies, and myriad other serious felonies. In addition, Mr. Nixon has developed an expertise in electronic surveillance, supervising more than two dozen wiretaps.
