Glad I spoke with him that day
I was working on merely getting an expert opinion from a lawyer with regards to a tax exempt status application I was working on so I made a couple of calls one fine day in September. Charles Dillon Esq was one of the lawyers I called. He got back to me later that day and after explaining what I was after he cut to the chase and told me that "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure". He then promised to take a look at my case and go from there if I was interested in getting the work done right. I went to see him in his office and since then I have been amazed at his humility, professionalism, attention to detail, sense of humor among other qualities. He is also willing to work with your budget, though the quality of his work is such that he can charge any sum he wants. I am a happy customer with the work he did on my foundation. I highly recommend him and I intend to work with him on other projects in the not too distant future.

Down to earth and very knowledgeable
Charles Dillon was referred to us through another attorney to handle some very sticky tax issues that we were dealing with for our company. We were incorporated, but were facing some real debt that we would be personally liable for to the IRS and the state. Upon meeting him the first time I immediately felt a sense of relief. His depth of knowledge about how we needed to approach our tax dilemma, as well as his "down to earth" demeanor put both my husband and myself at ease. It was almost as though he took the burden off our shoulders and put it on his. In all the subsequent meetings and phone calls throughout the process he was always very thorough in explaining each step to us in language we could understand. It was quite a process but in the end I was pleased with the outcome. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing representation, especially regarding tax issues--he's a genius!
