Dillon Harris was born in California (unfortunately) but grew up and spent most of his early life in Kingman, Arizona. His first exposure to the legal system came during high school when he spent a summer in the Mohave County Attorney’s Office working with attorneys and office staff in various practice areas.
Dillon attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona and graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice with specializations in Legal and Criminal Investigation, Legal and Court Justice, and Justice in Politics, Media, and Popular Culture. Throughout and immediately after college he held positions in both the Court Administration and Clerk of Superior Court departments of the Superior Court of Arizona in Coconino County, and operated on the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team responding to both individual-wilderness and disaster emergencies. During his time with the Superior Court, he was part of a team that was awarded the 2016 Strategic Agenda Award by the Arizona State Judiciary and the 2016 Merit Award by the Arizona Association of Counties.
In 2020, Dillon passed the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) in February, graduated cum laude from Vermont Law School in May, and then passed the Pennsylvania Bar Exam in October. He is admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania and Maryland and handles cases in both states dealing with firearms or general estate practice.
Dillon has been hunting and shooting, mostly in the Arizona desert, for nearly as long as he has been able to walk and can regularly be found on the range or exploring the trails and forests around Pennsylvania. Transitioning that background into a focus on firearms-related law was the natural evolution of his ever-increasing interest and understanding of the law and defending the Second Amendment.
