About me

Mr. Dillon is an internationally known private attorney who represents individuals and businesses in tax and business matters. His practice is dedicated to providing owners and managers of businesses with the advice, support and strategic counsel they require to successfully operate within the laws and regulatory requirements of the United States. He counsels United States and foreign clients on tax planning, tax controversy, corporate structure (incorporations, partnerships, joint ventures), buying and selling businesses, and financing. Mr. Dillon also has a thriving tax practice focused on assisting clients in long-term tax planning as well as representation before the Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities.


Mr. Dillon also has extensive professional experience involving government-to-government, business-to-government, and business-to-business relations in Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans. In fact, Mr. Dillon is recognized as being one of the foremost United States private attorneys with substantive experience in one of the newest countries in the world - Montenegro (the heart of Southeastern Europe). An example of his experience and efforts in Montenegro as well as the rest of the Western Balkans is that he is the founding director and president the U.S. – Montenegro Business Council (, a trade association aimed at promoting trade and investment opportunities between the United States and the Western Balkans. It is also through this organization that Mr. Dillon negotiated with the State of Maryland and Podgorica, Montenegro, the establishment of a foreign trade office for the State of Maryland in the Western Balkans (headquartered in Podgorica). As a direct result of these efforts the State of Maryland is the first state in the United States to have a physical presence in the Western Balkans.


Mr. Dillon’s previous legal experience includes working as a law partner with one of Maryland’s largest private law firms, where he managed the Tax Services Department. Mr. Dillon also worked with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (Enforcement Division and Market Regulations), the U.S. Department of Justice (Civil Tax Division), the Internal Revenue Service, Chief Counsel’s Office (Corporate), and the U.S. Tax Court.


Mr. Dillon is also a decorated veteran of the U.S. Navy. For more information, please visit
