He is the sole practitioner at his firm but has a large support staff of paralegals, legal assistants, and a team of experts to offer insight into accident cases, medical malpractice cases, etc.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Attorney Carbone worked as a police officer. After spending a few years working with the police department, he decided to switch gears and continue his education in order to better defend those who needed it most.

After obtaining his JD degree from Temple University and passing both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Bar exams, Attorney Carbone returned to his hometown of Jersey City, NJ, to begin his own law practice.

Attorney Carbone prides himself on offering his clients aggressive, relentless, and successful representation and has the track record to prove he can handle the tough cases.

He has successfully handled many divorces, working diligently to ensure his client receives a fair settlement. If you have been charged with a crime, whether a felony or misdemeanor, our criminal defense lawyer will perform a thorough investigation into the allegations against you and prepare an aggressive defense to get your charges dismissed or to get you an acquittal should the case end up before a judge and/or jury.

I highly recommend Anthony Carbone
I've gotten better results from working with Anthony Carbone than from any other lawyer I've worked with. He knows the law, is a pit bull in the courtroom, and can think quickly on his feet if necessary during litigation. All very important aspects of getting the results I wanted, which was primary custody of my son. I highly recommend him.

Legal Defense!
Loved!Loved!Loved! Mr. Anthony Carbone, Esq. His representation was beyond EXCEPTIONAL! He was so professional throughout the process of representing me. He was on time, knowledgeable, and serious about my legal defense. Mr. Carbone did not come to play. Even with that he was so calm and soft spoken not to mention handsome, well dressed and sharp while being assertative in his argument. When I say, I Love this man for what he has done for me that is an understatement. I can't put a price tag on what he's done for me. He saved my life. I know he was a God-Send. No question about it. The Creator sent him. From the very moment, when I was so confused, scared, and worried about who was going to help me with my case. I picked up the phone to call his office. I was so Blessed to have found him. It started with me looking him up and then I made that phone call into his office all of which was the start of me being guided and directed directly to him to find out if he can represent me, but just to have met a Wonderful person like Mr. Carbone are beyond what words can even express. His staff was GREAT! throughout the process as well. The receptionist is so sweet, and nice and I now consider her my friend........I pray and wish her the BEST! I am truly Grateful! Mr. Carbone knows the Law and he goes by it. I truly have found not only a friend for life but someone I consider a God-Send, an Angelic Being. THANK YOU AGAIN! Mr. Carbone I really mean that. If you need a legal expert or legal advice I highly recommend Mr. Anthony Carbone, Esq., and his staff. I pray for all the Best! for Mr. Carbone and his family So what are y'all waiting for. Love ❤ Y'all Family!

Review of Mr. Carbone’s professionalism
Mr. Carbone’s successful and accurate representation of my cases was critical to my career. The outputs of my professional endeavors are globally visible to the public, both domestically and internationally. I am the firm believer of if I haven’t done anything wrong, I should never get into trouble with the law, nor being shame of myself. Then my divorce started more than two years ago, not long after that, I have heard from DCPP, all the sudden, I was accused Child Sexual Abuse of my 7 years old boy, who is the most loved child in and out of the family. I thought to myself: what a desperate, topsy turvy attempt!! Somebody would sort this malicious nonsense out for me… I took it lightly, got a referral lawyer, who didn’t fight for me at all, only talked me into accepting the orders from the judge at the time, till the moment I have been ordered to pay for the lawyer of the opposite party, to fight to my weak lawyer!! That really woke me up and I realized my case was going down, and the treacherous smile of the accuser drove me furious so I thought I had to give some effort, finding somebody with the professional strategy, and an uncorrupted sense of justice. So I went to the office of Anthony Carbone. Mr. Carbone is the only lawyer who didn’t rush me out of the “free consultation”. In fact, some lawyers even rushed me when I paid 400 dollars per hour for their consultation. Mr. Carbone listened to my story, and paid attention to all the facts. He took over my DCPP and divorce cases, he really worked into it, and turned the Child Sexual Abuse and divorce cases around. Firstly the major step in winning of the honoring of my prenuptial agreement, which the opposite party was challenging it, wanted to throw out the whole agreement. But she couldn’t!! And then we throw away/dismissed the topsy turvy Child Sexual Abuse case, the stunning way of the judge was seeing the truth, and very much on my side. In the end I ended up to sign the agreement with minimum alimony payout, and the very fair child support. My cases revealed to me that is vitally important to have a great lawyer like Mr. Carbone on my side. He really seeing the truth, turning the cases around, step by step, fighting very, really hard to the malicious accusation, bringing the justice back!! When somebody presumes that just about every woman gets a fortune out from their divorce, especially when they do not hesitate to use their most precious children, as their weapon in the divorce, and then they confront a lawyer like Mr. Carbone, so they have a nightmare instead of a fortune as their lifetime lesson. I am a practicing artist and a very satisfied client of Mr. Anthony Carbone. I appreciate his effective representation in the matters of my cases. Mr. Carbone examines the truth, in the sense of pursuing justice for paternity.

Wealth of Knoledge
My girlfriend and I were being tormented by her x. Showing up at her job, following us, waited outside house. We placed a TRO, but the cops didn’t write in report everything that was being done. Case went to trial. Mr Carbone took the time, in snow and drove to see us. He explained his rights as well as ours and the process it takes to really put end to this. He was so knowledgeable about domestic violence that he was by far best choice ever. Thank you Mr Carbone.

Nothing But Great Results
I hired Anthony Carbone to defend me in a case where I was facing charges that would follow me throughout the rest of my life. I am so grateful to have been represented by an attorney that took the time to sit and have a consultation with me and act upon his words. From the moment we spoke about the charges I was facing, I was put at ease knowing that I was in the hands of someone who had in the past excelled as an attorney and was more than knowledgeable of my rights. Walking into the courtroom I was confident that I would be leaving with nothing but positive results and I was right. Thank you so much for representing me the way an exceptional lawyer should.

Unbelievable Lawyer and Help
On or about May 2013 I was injured and was referred to Anthony Carbone, Esq. by a neighbor I had no idea of what I was walking into. However, he answered all of my questions thoroughly and clear.

MR. CARBONE IS THE BEST IN HIS FIELD!!! RESULTS ORIENTED!!!
Mr. Carbone recently represented me (Defendant) on harassment case. A young gentleman (Complaintant) I was briefly involved with filed a harassment charge for sending him a few text messages after things between us went south. Though he regretted having taken things that far, I am a professional with a Security Clearance and his actions had a possibility of affecting my career. It truly surprised me at how the NJ legal system addresses this type of incident - especially after he continued to contact me after filing the charge. From the moment I called Mr. Carbone's office and spoke to his lovely assistant Mary, and had my initial consult with Mr. Carbone, I felt confident that my case was in the best possible hands. Not living in NJ made selecting the right attorney challenging, but after reviewing his AVVO profile and being referred specifically to him by some of his collegues as one of the best attorneys in Union City/Jersey City, I knew I had made the right choice. Though the legal process took a bit of time, Mr. Carbone and his staff keep me posted on the progress Today Mr. Carbone was successful in having the case dismissed! His staff, Mary and Johanna, were so very kind each and every time I called the office. My recommendation is that if you are looking for an attorney that is not only confident, knows the legal process, and be assured he will work very hard to provide you with the best possible outcome... Mr. Carbone is highly recommended!

Mr. Carbone is amazing. He is a cat in the courtroom and is relentless! I will never go anywhere without Mr. Carbone.
Mr. Carbone is amazing! He is everything a lawyer needs to be. He is aggressive when needed, completely relentless until we get what we need, and he definitely is successful. There was an incidence with my grandmother where she was being taken care of (negligently) and being harassed. Mr. Carbone rectified the situation while uncovering plenty more. She is now in good place and has less stress because of him. Good man and great lawyer! If you need one, call Mr. Carbone. He takes care of you or your family.

Exceptional and prompt service
Mr. Carbone has provided me with excellent service every time I have retained him. I have had other attorneys in the past that I wouldn't even consider hiring again after working with Mr. Carbone and his efficient staff. I truly appreciate his help and cooperation with every case he's handled for me

Got me results!
I met Mr. carbone after I interviewed a few lawyers in New Jersey to defend me on a case with my very bitter ex-husband. My ex husband and his horrible mess of an Attorney Maggie Khalil tried to settled the case with terrible terms on my child's custody that I did not have to agree to. Mr. Carbone adviced me very well and I did not agree to any of the terms and we ended up in trial. Today I celebrate winning the case and maintaining sole custody of my child. Very well recomended lawyer.

Kept my family together
When my 18 year old son had fallen into trouble and made an irresponsible decision I was devastated and I knew that my family would not be whole as it once was because of it. I was recommended Anthony Carbone and could not have been any happier with my decision. Mr. Carbone was honest, aggressive, and comforting all at the same time. There was not one thing that he told me that he did not back up. Mr. Carbone made me feel at ease during the entire process and he also helped my son realize the negative path he was taking in his life. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Mr. Carbone for delivering amazing results and most of all keeping my family together.

Best Lawyer I Met
I cannot endorse Anthony Carbone more highly! I am extremely satisfied with his services and could not have found a better attorney. He has handled three of my cases for me: a divorce, a Worker's compensation case, and a car accident case. I have won all three of these cases. He and his staff were always well-prepared and knowledgeable about the law. The were understanding and compassionate about my situation. Mr. Carbone took all the time I needed to make sure that I was successful and go the settlements that I deserved. I recommend Mr. Carbone to anyone! You are in great hands!
