Over the past fourteen years, he has litigated cases involving negligence, maritime injuries, wrongful death, product liability, insurance bad faith, professional liability, lender liability, and fraud. Anthony is a member of the Leadership Circle for the Alaska Association for Justice. He is also a Leadership Circle member of Alaska Public Broadcasting.
Anthony earned his law degree, with honors, at Gonzaga University in Spokane Washington. He was awarded a Dean’s Honor’s Scholarship and served as Editor-in-Chief of the Gonzaga Law Review. He is admitted to practice law in the courts of Alabama, Alaska, and Tennessee. Anthony has served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Alaska, Anchorage where he taught a course in civil litigation.
Anthony started practicing maritime law in 2001 with a firm representing international ship owners, operators, charterers, and P&I Clubs. He learned, firsthand, how shipowner’s insurance companies move quickly to protect their financial interests. Now, he uses everything he learned to protect injured crew members and their families.
In 2006, Anthony established the State of Alaska’s Office of Elder Fraud. While he was working for the State, Anthony investigated more than 500 cases of fraud, and recovered more than 4.5 million dollars’ worth of assets for financially exploited elder Alaskans.
Anthony feels particularly honored to represent working men and women and their families. He comes from "working family" roots. He spent summers working as a laborer with a concrete form erector crew, and put himself through college working as many as three jobs at a time. Anthony frequently sees working people lose the ability to work because of injury. Injured workers need good lawyers to help them recover everything available
