Anthony was born and raised in Washington State, the youngest of nine children. He learned the true nature of hard work in his family's fruit orchards along the Columbia River. Every summer and whenever school schedules allowed he would be at work in those fields. This work ethic has stayed with him and informs his professional practice every day. Anthony received his Bachelors Degree with Honors from Gonzaga University graduated cum laude from the Seattle University School of Law.
Anthony started his career with the prestigious firm of Heller, Ehrman, White and McAuliffe in Seattle and since 1998 has limited his practice to the arena of criminal defense. During that time, Anthony's practice has been largely dedicated to the aggressive and successful defense of DUI charges and the accompanying administrative hearings. Anthony has the experience of handling many hundreds of DUI cases and maintains a constant level of knowledge and expertise that very few attorneys can claim.
Anthony is well-liked and respected by his clients, peers, prosecutors and judges and uses his vast experience to get the best possible results for his clients. Anthony's hard work and experience really make the difference in these difficult cases.
