Lawyerly Lairs: Capital Homes in the Capital

Who says Jones Day doesn’t pay its people well? Consider this counter-evidence:

Lawyer Tony Dias bought a Colonial on Newhall Road in Potomac for $3.3 million. Built in 2006, the 11,000-square-foot house has eight bedrooms and eight baths. Dias is a partner at Jones Day, specializing in financial-institution litigation and regulation.

Dias graduated from Allegheny College in 1986 and from the University of Pittsburgh’s law school in 1989. He is active in community service, “hold[ing] leadership positions in national and local organizations promoting better public policy and improving children’s health.”

People have referred to Jones Day’s compensation system, where partners and associates don’t know how much their colleagues earn, as a “black box.” But if the black box contains enough cash to pay for a $3 million mansion — yes, it’s a “mansion,” with more than 10,000 square feet — who’s going to complain?

Sadly, we weren’t able to locate a photo of the house’s facade. And Google Maps mysteriously has no street-level view for this neighborhood. But here’s an aerial shot:

As you can see, it’s a beautiful area. The houses are sizable and well-spaced, and the forested terrain enhances the privacy of residents.

We’ll conclude our visit with a home that’s half the price of Antonio Dias’s, but impressive nevertheless….
