Dillon Zinser is a proud East Tennessee native. Dillon was born in Knoxville, but grew up in Maryville Tennessee. Shortly after graduating from college in 2013, Dillon moved to Knoxville, where he resides now. From a young age, Dillon wanted to be a lawyer to help people through difficult situations.
Dillon earned his Associate’s Degree from Pellissippi State Community College, before transferring to the University of Tennessee to complete his Bachelor’s Degree. Dillon spent three years working as a Supplemental Instructor and Tutor in Biology and Anatomy before commencing his legal education at the University of Tennessee College of Law in 2016. In 2017, Dillon began working for the Law Office of Joshua S. Reed as a law clerk after completing his first year of law school. Upon his successful completion of the Bar Exam and being licensed to practice, Dillon joined the firm at the Law Office of Joshua S. Reed as an Associate Attorney. Dillon’s practice focuses primarily on criminal defense and defending the rights of the accused, but Dillon also enjoys working on family law and estate planning matters for the firm. Dillon’s science background taught him the importance of analyzing the specific facts of each situation, thinking unconventionally, and developing a personalized strategy based on the details of a client's case.
Dillon strives to give back to his East Tennessee community, through both his legal work and volunteering with local organizations. He is an active member of the Knoxville Bar Association, the Blount County Bar Association, the Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (TACDL), and the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association.
