Tony represented me as the majority shareholder and CEO of a company my father had started, in unfortunate litigation with the minority shareholders. His representation was aggressive when necessary, his advice and counsel was always on target, and his passion for our position was comforting during a very difficult time. His knowledge of the legal issues was exceptional, and he had an uncanny ability to explain the law throughout the litigation. Ultimately his knowledge and experience helped me to arrive at a compromise resolution.
I am pleased to provide this testimonial for Tony. Tony represented me in a financial services arbitration hearing. You may be surprised that I am writing this though Tony and I did not prevail. I am writing this because through Tony’s commitment, passion, empathy and above all, legal skills, Tony made me feel protected, defended, and in great hands. He was a zealous advocate against one of the largest financial institutions in the world. He explained the risks, the law, and I was able to make an informed decision to go to trial that I do not regret, because it was the right thing to do, and I’d do it all again with Tony. I give him my strongest recommendation.
Tony represented me in a dispute over my shareholder agreement with my former partners in a medical practice. It was not an easy decision for me to pursue the claim, but I chose to pursue it out of principle. Tony was clear about the costs of pursuing my claim, both emotionally and financially. I appreciated that honesty. He was a fierce and zealous advocate from start to finish. He explained the law to me all along. I felt like we were in it together. Even though the arbitrator didn’t rule in our favor, even if I knew then, what I know now, I would do it all again.
We retained Tony and his firm to handle complex litigation with a competitor in Connecticut. His extraordinary efforts and skilled handling of the case enabled us to receive desirable results and we certainly would engage Tony again. We recommend him to others in need of a highly competent, qualified and diligent attorney.
Tony is a key part of our legal team. He handles our litigation matters with a vision of not only our key objectives, but also of the concerns we have with the high cost of litigation.
Our family has been manufacturing and selling trucks in Connecticut since 1947 based on quality service and reputation. Tony has been our attorney since 2000 for the same reasons.
When our company faced its first discrimination complaint, we retained Tony's firm because his credentials were impressive and ideally suited. He went above and beyond for us and to our relief, resolved the matter successfully and within our limited budget. Despite the onerous nature of the matter, it was a great pleasure to work with Tony.
Tony's firm defended our company against trade secret and unfair trade practice claims brought against us by a competitor. The competitor was represented by two attorneys at all times from a large regional law firm. Tony outmatched them every step of the way.
As a fellow attorney, I can wholeheartedly recommend Anthony to other business owners or professionals. My legal matter involved complicated issues of a former business partnership with my former spouse and law partner. Anthony handled the case with compassion and with strength. One of the best.
After having the unfortunate occasion to find my company involved in litigation I was very fortunate to be introduced to Tony. Tony has not only an extensive knowledge of the law but the wits to be able to utilize that information at the appropriate time and place. As a lawyer, he is professional and confident and I was impressed by his ability to understand and clarify the nuances of the legal system. I was very pleased by his representation and consider him a valued resource for my business.
Tony is an excellent attorney. He is smart, practical, and a great strategist. I've had the pleasure of working with and hiring Tony as local counsel. I have also referred him clients. My clients and referrals and I have been very pleased with the results. Tony has a strong work ethic, is trustworthy and reliable.
Tony’s firm represented our healthcare consulting company, brilliantly! We sought commissions for services rendered to a healthcare technology company backed by venture capital firms with deep pockets. We endured over a two years of litigation in federal court against a firm with an international footprint. Nearly all of Tony’s arguments carried the day with the federal judge on issues including unfair trade practice and bad faith breach of contract. Tony’s experience as a law professor was really helpful as he explained complex legal issues in a way that my wife and I, sole principals of our business, were able to understand. Tony’s wise counsel helped us navigate decision making so we were able to rationally weigh the risks of trying the case in front of a jury. At the end of the day, Tony successfully negotiated a fair settlement, which has made a real difference for my family, avoiding the necessity of arbitration or assuming the risk of a trial by jury.
I fell behind reading the advanced release opinions from Connecticut's appellate courts. This one from June about a subcontractor using deposit money from one project to fund its other projects is a fact pattern that happens all too often. The analysis applies to any business.
Minchella Law Junkies are proud to sponsor the 2022 Summer Read at the Middlebury Public Library!! “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
The Dept. of Health and Human Services issued some guidance in the wake of SCOTUS Roe reversal. It addresses some really interesting issue for doctors, physicians and all providers about cell phone apps, tracking, and protected information.
In an opinion granting a motion for extension of time, judge noted how defense counsel attacked plaintiff's counsel ("seeking another bailout to allow him to file a late memorandum.") and doubted his veracity. We can be really good lawyers, and even better, by not doing that.
Just had a case reassigned to a new magistrate judge in the EDNY. So great for the profession to see individual rules that encourage "junior and less experienced" lawyers to argue motions, and the willingness to hold oral argument to facilitate that experience.
