Tony focuses his practice on the life cycle of lending transactions, from loan origination through final collection, including addressing the bumps along the road through loan modifications, defaults, workouts, bankruptcy, and foreclosure. Because lending and real property are closely intertwined, he frequently handles complex real estate transactions for buyers and sellers, and for financial institutions with an interest in the transaction. Tony has served as both debtors’ and creditors’ counsel, and so brings a diverse background of experience to analyzing the lender-borrower relationship.

Before joining Farleigh Wada Witt, Tony was the regional Managing Attorney of a financial services law firm, after working in the Business Transactions and Bankruptcy groups at Miller Nash Graham and Dunn and other Pacific Northwest law firms, with a focus on business transactions, corporate finance, and financial services litigation.

He was first admitted to practice in New York in 2007, and now regularly practices in state and federal courts throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

Tony is the Chair of the Oregon State Bar Debtor-Creditor Section’s Legislative Committee, and is an active member of the Credit Union National Association and the Oregon Bankers Association. He was formerly a Director and Supervisory Committee Chair of a leading Oregon-based community credit union.
