Dill served in the Maine House and Senate before running for former Sen. Olympia Snowe’s seat in the U.S. Senate. She won the Democratic primary but came in a distant third in the general election, after independent Angus King and Republican Charlie Summers.

Dill, who used to be a self-employed civil rights lawyer, said she will concentrate her law practice on commercial and civil litigation; federal employment law and representing veterans; government relations for individuals and businesses; and assisting Internet-based companies and start-up organizations.
