She won two out of three issues in the case, which was a very difficult litigation process. Moreover, Ms. Dillon cites figuring out a balance to a busy legal practice and being a wife and mother to three children has been one of the most challenging aspects of her career. In five years’ time, she envisions herself still litigating cases in tax court.
