"Tony is an extremely thorough attorney and problem solver. His ability to analyze a situation is amazing. His zealous commitment to his clients and his focus on guiding them through the complex maze of litigation leads to a high degree of trust and respect from both his clients and associates. He approaches litigation on behalf of his clients as though he and they are a team.
