  • Omar Sebastian Anorga

    Being a civil litigator, or a least a good one, demands that you have a masterful grasp of strategy and procedure. Tony has that skill. Often, I go to him for his insights on a matter that I am dealing with, or how I should run a certain play in litigation, and Tony always has sage and insightful knowledge for me. He is competent, and readily available to me, and with his clients. I endorse this lawyer.
