Background and Experience

Alfred M. Anthony, one of New Jersey's most prominent mass tort and class action attorneys, heads up the firm's Roseland, New Jersey office and also works out of the Locks firm's Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York City offices as well.

Mr. Anthony has spent the last 26 specializing in environmental contamination, toxic and mass torts, chemical exposure, benzene exposure, asbestos exposure, pharmaceutical torts and products liability litigation.

In 1994, Mr. Anthony established legal precedent in New Jersey by certifying the first toxic exposure personal injury and medical monitoring class action (Russo v. Allied Signal). As a result of the settlement, a 30-year medical monitoring program was established for people who played on a chromium contaminated ball field in Jersey City, NJ.

In 1997, he received the Association of Trial Lawyers of America's Outstanding Achievement Award for his work on behalf of 427 Pompton Lakes residents in an environmental contamination suit against DuPont that resulted in a $38.5 million settlement (Armona v. DuPont).

Al also has handled several other environmental contamination suits and chemical exposure cases, obtaining very positive results for his clients. Within the past few years, Mr. Anthony certified two additional class actions in West Caldwell, New Jersey and Tonawanda, New York, representing over 38,000 victims of environmental contamination. Both have been upheld on appeal.

Outside the Office

Mr. Anthony is very active in community and civic affairs and was elected to the Livingston, New Jersey Town Council in 2012 and 2016. He served as mayor in 2016 and deputy mayor in 2015 and 2018. He is currently the Mayor for 2019. He and his wife Lori of 24 years have four beautiful children.
