  • John William Hillman

    I know Anthony very well, personally and professionally. As a professional, there is no attorney that works harder, especially in the area of matrimonial and family law, or who is more knowledgeable than Mr. Buono. As an adversary, Mr. Buono is very courteous and professional in the way he conducts business, though he no doubt zealously represents his clients.

  • April Marie Dalbec

    I have the pleasure of knowing Anthony Buono as an adversary on several cases in Columbia County. He works tremendously hard for his clients, he is a fine negotiator, and a formidable opponent in the court room. He is also a genuine and caring person-who truly cares about his clients' needs. I fully endorse this lawyer.
