Great Attorney
Anthony helped me deal with a state bar investigation from a disgruntled former client. As a defense counsel myself, I originally thought I could handle it, but due to the complex history of the case and the many requests from the investigator, I decided it was better to leave this to an expert in this area of the law. I am so glad I did - within a few weeks, the case was closed out with no action. Call Anthony if you need someone to handle such a case for you - you won't regret it.

Great Advice RE Good Moral Character Application
Anthony provided me with a brief consultation prior to my submission for my good moral character application. Seven months after submitting my application, my application was cleared by the state bar of California. I recommend Anthony to anyone that is submitting the good moral character application!

Trust Anthony as Your Attorney If You're Dealing with Any State Bar Issues
I retained Anthony almost a week and a half before my informal conference with the State Bar in their San Francisco location. Without going into too much detail regarding my circumstances, my situation was tricky. I had academic issues in undergraduate, which I initially failed to disclose in my law school application. My moral character application had been pending under review for at least 6-7 months. I was extremely nervous about the informal conference, but Anthony immediately made me feel comfortable. He prepared me via two phone calls, where he asked me questions he believed the Bar would ask me, and explained the entire process in detail. He also flew from SoCal to San Francisco to attend the conference with me. I felt prepared going into the conference. Ultimately, I was admitted to the Bar and I credit this to Anthony. He is an incredible attorney who will prepare you for the challenging process that is navigating the State Bar.

Personable, Approachable, and Knowledgeable
Anthony is a great lawyer. He listens carefully and provides honest advice on the best approach to take. Anthony represented me in responding to a State Bar investigation stemming from a frivolous complaint filed by a disgruntled former client. Anthony saw that there was no basis for the complaint and he got the case closed rapidly and efficiently. Highly recommend.

Honest, efficient, effective, and easy to work with
Anthony handled a State Bar matter for me in the first quarter of 2019. He was responsive, knowledgeable, efficient, and easy to work with. At our initial meeting, Anthony gave me an honest and accurate assessment of my case. His fees are reasonable, and his instructions are clear. Best of all, the case turned out exactly as he predicted. Kudos to Anthony for successfully defending my professional reputation.

Great attorney, would retain again.
I've worked with other State Bar attorneys in the past and they are loathe to give you the lowdown on how things work behind the scenes and to strategize. Anthony, on the other hand, was very open about how things work behind the scenes and how to best increase your chances of success. He never made me feel hurried. Plus, he was affordable and did a great job for me on relatively short notice. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and would advise that you hire him before you respond to the State Bar.

First and only call you need to make
I was contacted by the bar regarding an investigation of allegations of misconduct. The bar investigator wanted to come and interview me at my office on the same day. I refused and called Anthony immediately. As you can imagine, I was angry and concerned. Anthony handled the situation and I did not have to deal with anybody at the bar. More importantly, he convinced the investigators that they had no solid evidence and forced them to drop the case. I also retained Anthony years ago when I was charged with a DUI. He handled that case with the utmost professionalism and expertise as well. I highly recommend you retain Anthony if you have any issues with the bar.

Excellent Attorney
I cannot express how grateful I am to Mr. Radogna. He helped negotiate a very complex and arcane complaint. He was always accessible and willing to discuss my case. Mr. Radogna really helped me through a year long process - a very stressful process that took a toll. However, I am very lucky to have been represented by Anthony. His representation is incomparable.

Life Saver
I hired Anthony and he was awesome. He took control of responding to the Bar and that allowed me to stay focused on my clients. As a lawyer turned client it was hard to let go, but that was really helpful to have it taken off my plate. And the result was exactly what I wanted and hoped for.

Case closed . Thank you Anthony
I hired Anthony to help me respond to an investigation by the State Bar and he successfully assisted me in getting the case closed . I am extremely grateful to him. Anthony was extremely knowledgeable, experienced, understanding, provided great service and is easy to talk with. I decided to call him after reading a positive review about him here regarding his exceptional insight and effectiveness and I am so happy that I did. So, if you are in the same situation I highly recommend you give him a call.

Great Attorney, Excellent Work
I received one of those dreaded letters from the State Bar. As an attorney, no matter what the circumstances, you do not like to see one of them come your way. I was referred to Mr. Radogna by a friend, and am extremely happy with the work of Mr. Radogna. He is very knowledgeable, easy to talk with, provides great client service. and obtained a highly satisfactory result for me. I will easily recommend him to people in the future.

Investigated by the State Bar? Hire Anthony Radogna!
Anthony represented me in responding to the State Bar's investigation. The result was: No charges were filed and the State Bar closed their investigation.

Anthony will all you to remain calm and focus
When faced with a State Bar Complaint, every attorney should not only take it seriously, but put it in the hands of someone you can trust your business with. This is your career and how you survive we are talking about. Abraham Lincoln is credited with stating “[they] who represents [them]selves has a fool for a client”… this also rings true when facing the State Bar. Do not be foolish, hire Anthony like myself and others and get back to focusing on your practice. Thank you Anthony for your professionalism and calming presence.

I'd give more stars if I could. I am writing this reivew to help anyone who may need Anthony's services in the future. I'm not generally one who uses reivews to help me hire people or to choose restaurants. But if you are reading this review, I would absoltuely recommend hiring Anthony as your lawyer to defend against a State Bar Complaint. My partner and I received our first Sate Bar complaint from a former client and we were shocked, to say the least. We discussed handling it on our own, but decided to hire Anthony for two reasons: i) he was referred by a friend and ii) he has a well-respected, unique background with the State Bar. I found his experience as a former investigator to be invaluable in working out our issue. He was able to speak with the investigators in a language we did not understand, and drill down on whatever the main issue was to resolve our complaint. In addition to doing great work, Anthony is very, very responsive. I would contact (i.e. harass) him with tons of questions becuase I was upset, nervous and scared that the Compalint would damage my reputation. Anthony was patient with me (even though he didn't need to) and answered every one of my questions in a reasonable, profesionall and respectful manner. Our case was ultimately thrown out, which came as a huge relief. I credit this decision entirely to Anthony's hard work and dedication to our case. He actually made me feel like he cared about getting the case dismiss, which is more than I can say about a lot of my colleagues. I'm not writing this review becuase he asked me to. I thought it would help anyone who is looking at this reivew to know what they are getting into. In the event I have another discipline issue (which I pray I never do), Anthony will be the first person I call.

Don't Be Foolish. Hire Anthony When Faced with a Bar Complaint.
Unfortunately, I have been subject to two bar reviews. In both instances, Anthony represented me with both matters closed after initial responses prepared by Anthony. He knows and understands the Bar process and procedures. He understands the nuances of the investigative process and counsels keeps his clients away from potential pitfalls that may not seem obvious to someone unfamiliar with these types of matters. Don't handle these matters yourself. Hire counsel. More particularly, hire Anthony Radogna.

Hire Mr. Radogna if the CA Bar sends you the initial letter or files charges against you - Period!
I received an inquiry letter from the CA Bar. Instead of initially submitting a claim through my insurance carrier, I let my ego get the better of me and tried to handle it myself. BIG MISTAKE. Don't let your own ego get the best of you - like it did with me. Mr. Radogna focuses on CA Bar defense - I don't - he knows and understands the process and how to resolve matters without further escalation, and ultimately reach a positive resolution - which was the final result in my case. By the way, I then contacted my carrier for financial coverage of this matter and my carrier wanted to assign its own panel defense counsel - who happened to be a legal malpractice attorney. I declined the carrier's choice because the defense attorney had limited experience in specifically handling CA Bar cases. After thorough research and discovering Mr. Radogna, I then interviewed him personally - which was more of a cross-examination as opposed to a general Q & A. He was the right choice - Period!

Excellent Attorney! Excellent Outcome!
The moment I read the complaint letter from the State Bar i had a panic attack. I immediately contacted Mr. Radogna and consulted with him via telephone regarding the complaint. The very next day I was at his office interfacing with him regarding my matter. After a very lengthy conversation he gave me the confidence to hire him. He answered all my concerns and was honest throughout the whole process. My case was resolved with an excellent outcome! Moreover, the relationship he has with the State Bar investigators gives him an advantage over other attorneys. I highly recommend that if you are facing disciplinary action by the State Bar, the attorney you should call is Anthony P. Radogna.
