Tony is the man!
I went in for my consultation today and I felt he got the background of the case immediately. He was able to break it down, knew what to do with it and how to proceed in my best interest. Answered all my questions. He's a senior attorney with over 25 years experience and the backing of Jeff Leving's lawfirm. Down to earth, knowledgeable guy and professional as can be. Exactly who I want representing me during this time when I need a lawyer.

Great attorney
Anthony works for the law firm of Jeffrey Leving’s Fathers Rights. I recently had an appointment with him in regards to my situation. I HIGHLY recommend this Anthony, not because he works there, but because he really helped me. This law firm is truly a BLESSING.

The Super Lawyer
Tony is a very genuine and down to earth guy. When I met him. I really didn't know what to expect and I was extremely nervous. Tony gave my situation a silver lining. As long as you are doing the right thing. This would definitely be your best choice hands down. When I left his office I was able to tell that Tony is a the type of person and lawyer you don't and won't meet everyday. Jefferey Leving is and excellent judge of character for hiring Tony. He knows his stuff and he gets immediate results.

Divorce (No Kids)
I hired Anthony D'Agostino to assist me with my divorce. Him and his staff were courteous as well as professional, and my divorce was finalized without a hitch. They made an incredibly stressful proceeding as simple and painless as possible and I would certainly recommend them.

Highly reccomended
I highly recommend the Law Offices of Jeffery Leving, and my attorneys Mike Ochoa and Anthony D’Agostino. They were passionate and highly skilled in the Courtroom in fighting for my Fathers’ Rights. I was glad they were part of my legal team and would definitely work with them again.

Consultation to my 14 year DNA Paternity Case (My case was dismissed)
I met with with Attorney Anthony back on 10/10/2013 at his office for a consultation. After getting a DNA test that gave evidence that I was not the biological father to a minor child. I met with Attorney Anthony for a consulation. This man was God send to my family and I. He took over an hour to speak with me. He listened and showed extraordinary care in my case. I am so impressed and blessed by His high level of expertese in family law and concern over my past issue that was resolved on May 6, 2015. I will never forget Attorney Anthony and Highly recommend his services to anyone who is in a tight position. He is extremely professional, knowledable and truly is more than an attorney. I highly and I mean highly recommend him. I cannot say how grateful I am for all he has done for me and my case that was dismissed and all my arrearages have been thrown out too!!! I am a free man and he gets the credit!!!

Anthony D'Agostion a lawyer you can count on
Mr. D'Agostino really impresses me because he is able to analyze legal situations and come up with great strategies and solutions that really work, unlike so many other lawyers who just are not creative and resourceful. For me, he is a family lawyer who is at the top.
Posted by anonymous | June 17, 2015
Great Attorney
Anthony represented me in my divorce which consisted of many issues including child custody, visitation, child support, maintenance, and a division of our marital estate and property. He did an excellent job and was passionate about helping me and the children. I highly recommend this lawyer!

Child Custody Client
TONY IS AN OUTSTANDING AND COMPASIONATE ATTORNEY. My Initial Consultation with the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving was with a highly respectable and very experienced attorney Anthony (Tony) D’Agastino). During my initial consultation, Tony did the following: 1 )Listened to and wrote down every important detail of my lengthy story and concerns. 2) Expressed sincere concern and even expressed sympathy for my situation and the events that I had already endured. 3) Asked questions and made sure that he understood the details correctly. 4) Clearly explained the law and what he would do to get me a court order for visitation/parenting time as soon as possible. 5) Discussed my options as well as how he could use the law to address my concerns and achieve my goals. For example, he told me he would file a motion for an emergency hearing to establish visitation/parenting time as soon as possible. – none of the other attorneys I interviewed offered this. 6) Listened to my goals and helped me clarify and establish clear achievable goals. 7) Provided me with instructions, resources, and clearly explained what I should do over the next few days, weeks, and in the coming months to help my case as we moved forward. – For example, simple things like keeping a journal and log of any visitation, organizing documents, attend every appointment with the pediatrician, and keep a copy of all medical records for our daughter. 8) Continually reassured me of what a great father I am and that he wanted to fight for me and make sure I was protected. 9) Explained the details and importance of having everything spelled out specifically in a parenting agreement that would eventually be signed and put into order by the judge. 10) How to document and keep track of what the mother was doing to interfere with the father child relationship 11) How to conduct myself in a manner that would not discredit me or make me look bad in front of a judge. 12) Explained how the law firm worked and that my case would be reviewed by Mr. Leving and assigned to a senior attorney. 13) Formulated an effective legal strategy implemented in court Tony continued to work closely with the senior attorney (Larry Rosen) that was assigned to my case. Tony and Larry did exactly what they said they would do and WE RECEIVED A COURT ORDER FOR VISITATION/PARENTING TIME EXACTLY THIRTY ONE WORKING DAYS AFTER MY EX WAS FIRST SERVED WITH MY INITIAL PETITION.
