FAMILY AND COMMUNITY
The two most important things in Anthony's life are his family and his clients, in that order. However, his wife ex-Victoria, with much love and respect, may say his clients come first, given the many dinners that she has prepared that have been left sitting while Anthony answered just one more phone call before coming home for the evening. Sad to say but my career and working so much took a toll on my marriage, though we are still friends. Regrets I've had a few for sure. But after 32 years I know you need someone who will fight with all their heart for you. .Being a personal injury lawyer is more than a job.
