In 2006, he graduated with honors and ranked in the top seven percent of his graduating class of over 250 students.

Anthony’s work at Butler has mainly involved property subrogation and recovery, including all forms of contribution and indemnity claims. Anthony has handled hundreds of subrogation matters around the country, including claims for property damage, business interruption/ and loss profit, extra expenses, and other damages that occur as consequences of losses.  From initial evaluation through trial, Anthony has handled subrogation cases arising out of, among other things: wild land fires, explosions, structure fires, material failures, mechanical failures, structural collapses, construction defects, product liability, and trucking accidents. Through his work on cases arising out of such catastrophic events as wild land fires and massive fire spread cases, Anthony is skilled at effectively managing matters involving many parties.
