Anthony joined Marler Clark as an associate attorney in August 2015, after graduating from Seattle University School of Law with honors. Spending his last year of law school working as a Rule 9 Legal Licensed Intern with Marler Clark, Anthony worked closely with managing partner, Bill Marler, and former partner, Denis Stearns, on complex class actions, completing significant research that covered a variety of legal issues including the recovery of emotional distress damages in cases involving consumption of recalled food, and the differing legal standards applicable to the certification of class actions under state and federal law. Also during law school, Anthony worked in-house at Weyerhaeuser Company, where he focused primarily on environmental and natural resources law issues, and served as a summer associate at the firm of Fortier & Mikko, P.C. in Anchorage, Alaska, where he helped prepare native villages for a government consultation with the EPA and worked on Endangered Species Act issues surrounding the development of Pebble Mine. He also had the opportunity to work as a legal extern for now Washington State Supreme Court Justice, Mary Yu, at King County Superior Court during her appointment.
Most recently, Anthony has worked on many of the firms significant personal injury, product liability, mass tort, and class action lawsuits representing victims of foodborne illness outbreaks. He has successfully represented clients nationwide against companies such as McDonald’s, Trader Joe’s, Genki Sushi, and Costco, in both state and federal courts. Going forward, Anthony’s practice will focus on all stages of pretrial litigation including drafting pleadings, conducting discovery, attending mediations, developing case theory, and preparing cases for trial.
Prior to law school, Anthony obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Natural Resource Sciences from Washington State University, where he focused on Wildlife Ecology. One of his fondest memories from that time is living in a tent for ninety days during his senior year, conducting habitat and vegetation surveys to collect and analyze highly technical data for the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife. When he is not working, Anthony is an avid outdoorsman, enjoys playing softball, and spends significant time with his English Pointer, Rock.
