Upon law school graduation and passage of the Bar Examination, Mr. Anthony began trying cases in 1983, representing the City of New York. He remained in that position for 7 years.
After leaving City employment in late 1989, Mr. Anthony began trying cases for injured plaintiffs. His first plaintiff’s verdict was one where a Manhattan jury awarded $1.3 million dollars, an amount that withstood appeal. Thereafter, Mr. Anthony almost exclusively represented plaintiffs who were injured due to sidewalk falls, snow and ice cases, premises liability, police misconduct cases, workers who were injured on the job site, traffic accidents involving ordinary drivers, taxis, and City vehicles such as police, fire, sanitation and MTA vehicles. His verdicts include a $7.8 million-dollar verdict for a young girl who was caused to suffer lead poisoning in the building where she lived. At the time, it was one of the single plaintiff lead poisoning verdicts in the country.
