"When clients are faced with life-altering matters, I'm not afraid to tackle challenges other lawyers won't."

Anthony Riccio is an experienced trial attorney who quickly developed a reputation as one of the best young lawyers in Massachusetts. He has been named to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for his work in criminal defense for five consecutive years (2016-2020); a distinction awarded to only 2.5 % of attorneys in Massachusetts. Anthony has been lead counsel in over 50 trials, including approximately 35 jury trials, with a nearly 85% acquittal rate as defense counsel.

Criminal Defense from a Former Prosecutor

Anthony represents individuals charged with misdemeanors and felonies in district and superior court, as well as federal court in Massachusetts. Anthony is a former Assistant District Attorney at the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office. He prosecuted thousands of criminal cases involving allegations of operating under the influence of alcohol (“drunk driving”) or drugs, drug possession and distribution, assault & battery, larceny, violations of restraining orders, and sexual assault.

As a former prosecutor, Anthony has the unique ability to understand the strengths and weaknesses of a case from the government’s perspective and uses that knowledge to negotiate favorable plea deals for his clients. When a plea deal is not an option, Anthony uses his experience as a trial lawyer to develop effective trial strategies and aggressively defends his clients at trial.

Personal Injury Advocacy from a Lawyer Who Knows How Insurance Companies Think

Anthony also represents individuals injured through no fault of their own on personal injury claims throughout Massachusetts. He has negotiated favorable settlements for clients injured in motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and slip-and-falls. Previously, Anthony worked at a Boston law firm defending insurance companies on personal injury and wrongful death claims resulting from car accidents, construction site accidents, slip-and-falls, and other claims of negligence. With Anthony’s knowledge of how to defend a personal injury claim, he understands what it takes to bring a successful personal injury suit on behalf of a plaintiff.

Anthony graduated from Syracuse University College of Law and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Anthony was born and raised in North Attleboro, MA and is an avid sports fan.
