Anthony went above and beyond with my case. Not only did he keep me in the loop with any relevant information regarding my case, but he put me at ease by not treating me like just another client. He is very personable and easy to talk. All in all, he was on top of everything 100% of the time. William

Right off the bat I could tell Anthony knew his stuff. His experience as being a prosecutor completely gave him the knowledge of the criminal court system from that side. Now as a defense lawyer, you couldn't ask for a smarter guy who knows everything about what the other side is doing. Don't to call him, you won't be disappointed. Former Client
