Getting Real: A 'Video Podcast' Series: An Interview with Justin Dillon

Hosted by Foley Hoag partner Veronica Renzi to generate dialogue among and build community with women lawyers

These days, we are looking at this widespread remote working scenario as an opportunity to enhance business relationships by reexamining professional boundaries and relying on means such as video conferences and phone calls. This "video podcast" series consists of discussions with female and male attorneys about issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you find them interesting and helpful and we are grateful to all the lawyers who made time to talk with us.

 

Guest: Justin Dillon, Partner, KaiserDillon PLLC

In today’s episode, Veronica gets real with Justin Dillon, partner at KaiserDillon PLLC in Washington, DC. Veronica and Justin talk about what it’s like to defend college students in Title IX proceedings all over the country; why he likes doing white-collar work for individuals so much; and how his past experiences have helped shape him as a tenacious, criminal defense attorney who really partners with his clients when their life and freedom is on the line. Justin also reflects about hustle and luck and why they are both key success in law and life, and why, if a professional can clearly articulate how they are viewed by others, they are probably spending a little too much time thinking about it.
