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
