Duffy Dillon is the founder of Dillon & Grube law firm in Janesville, WI. Duffy is one of the most experienced trial lawyers and business advisors working in Rock County today. He focuses his practice in four areas: personal injury, civil litigation, family law, and outside general counsel for local businesses.
Duffy has litigated personal injury cases throughout his career. After spending 19 years handling personal injury claims for accident victims and insurance companies alike, Duffy founded our firm in 2019 so that he could devote 100% of his personal injury practice on helping accident victims recover full compensation for their injuries. Duffy has recovered millions in settlements and judgments for his personal injury clients over the course of his career.
Unlike some personal injury lawyers, Duffy has also litigated a broad range of civil disputes throughout his career. Duffy’s civil litigation experience includes but is not limited to claims for breach of contract, defamation, employment law discrimination and non-compete claims, and trademark infringement, as well as disputes over insurance coverage, property rights, and zoning and land use.

As Duffy’s business clients came to appreciate his advocacy and skills in the courtroom, those same clients started asking Duffy to help them in their boardrooms, too. Today Duffy acts as outside general counsel for local manufacturers and service providers who rely on him to help tackle the day-to-day legal needs most businesses face. Duffy’s business clients appreciate the unique experiences Duffy brings to the table as their counsel. Duffy’s accounting background helps him understand what makes their businesses “go,” his litigation experience helps him ask the right questions about the risks they face, and his personal experiences launching and running his own businesses help him relate to business owners in ways that some lawyers cannot.
Duffy spent several years litigating family law cases at the outset of his career. He resumed his family law practice after opening our firm in 2019. Duffy’s family law clients benefit from his experience, steady temperament, accounting background, and sound judgment -- particularly in divorces involving business owners where property division disputes can be more involved.
