Law360 asked Dyer to name an attorney in his field and outside of his firm who has impressed him, and to explain why. Dyer replied "I will mention Paul Debolt. Paul, now at Venable, was a young JAG officer when I first met him. I was a young associate. We were on opposite sides of a case involving strong personalities on both sides. Even at that relatively young age, Paul impressed me as someone who strove to put personalities aside and to focus on moving the case forward based on its merits. Thanks in good part to Paul’s attitude, we were able to settle the case to, I think, both parties’ benefit."
