About Anthony

Learn Anthony’s areas of practice.

Anthony A. Ciaccio, Sr. is the head of the personal injury department at Schalk, Ciaccio & Kahn. Anthony’s vast experience as both a trial attorney for a major insurance company and then for a prominent plaintiff’s personal injury firm, gives him the insight to advocate for clients who are injured through the negligence of others.

Anthony began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney for the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office, gaining real-world trial experience prosecuting both misdemeanors and major felonies. He tried numerous cases while working as an Assistant District Attorney with a tremendous success rate and built a reputation as a fierce courtroom advocate among his peers and colleagues.

Following his time in law enforcement, Anthony applied his trial skills to the field of personal injury, learning the inner workings of the insurance industry from both sides of the aisle. Anthony worked for a major insurance carrier, becoming an expert in how insurance companies value cases, as well as avoid paying out on claims. Anthony then joined a premier personal injury law firm where he applied this knowledge and honed his negotiation skills, fighting for compensation for his clients’ injuries. Anthony’s unique experience working on “both sides the fence” ensures that you quickly get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Anthony has recovered millions for his clients through settlements, arbitration, and verdicts. Anthony has a reported million-dollar verdict and several notable settlements. Anthony prides himself on trying tough cases and winning when other lawyers feel there is no chance for victory.

Anthony proudly served our country in the United States Marine Corps and received an Honorable discharge after four years of service. Anthony is active in community affairs, enjoys spending time with his family and always has a spare moment to talk baseball.

Excellent Attorney
Anthony has been more than helpful with my traffic ticket. He kept me updated the entire time, making sure I knew the steps he was taking and was also very quick in handling my case. He made sure I was well informed and educated on anything I didn't know or any questions I had and was quick to respond. He went to the court house for me and He got me the best deal possible on my 90 mph speeding ticket from 8 points down to community service with no points and a small fine which is a small price to pay. I've recommended Anthony to all my co-workers and friends because he is affordable, well educated, and an all around nice guy to deal with.

Need an attorney
Having known Anthony Ciaccio for over 20 years and having served with him in the United States Marine Corps, Anthony is the type of man not just lawyer that I would put my trust in over any other. He has recently been doing some legal work for my company with great results, getting our latest violation dismissed. I had already referred Anthony to several other companies and would strongly recommend him to anyone in need of legal help.
