Substantial Experience in Family Law Cases
Reaching agreements out of court is always preferable to a long, drawn-out legal battle, but it requires a high level of skill and knowledge of the law to ensure that a client's best interests are protected.
In representing those involved in complicated family law matters, Antonio is a trial lawyer who painstakingly gathers the evidence needed to defend your case, while using his knowledge of the law and the family court system to make compelling arguments in your favor.
His law degrees were obtained from the following universities:
- Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Trial Advocacy, Temple University College of Law

His thorough knowledge of the law, practical experience in applying it to family law cases, and dedication to getting results have allowed Antonio to be well respected, both among my clients and the legal community.
When not in the office helping clients, Antonio is usually spending time with his wife, Sandra, and their precocious young child Jeremiah. Trying, but failing, to be a hardcore biker, Antonio enjoys riding his Harley on the weekends. He completes one 2,000+ mile motorcycle trip across different states and through various national parks every summer usually finishing the trip at the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota. That's as close as he gets to feeling like a true biker.
