Featured Flourish

Tony’s practice concentrates on complex matters in the areas of product liability (including “mass torts” and “toxic torts” involving products such as asbestos, pharmaceutical drugs, and medical devices) medical malpractice, personal injury, premises liability, sexual abuse, liquor liability, and business disputes. He is a seasoned trial attorney who effectively distills complicated scientific and medical evidence into compelling arguments.

Tony has represented local, national and international product manufacturers, distributors and retailers in product liability cases throughout New England and New York. His cases have involved all kinds of products ranging from power tools, motor vehicles, construction machinery and household appliances to children’s play equipment, lawn-and-garden equipment, arts-and crafts-materials, and mechanical components.

In addition to his trial successes, Tony has won numerous pre-trial dismissals of significant cases, has been successful in appellate matters in both Massachusetts and Virginia, has deposed expert witnesses around the country, and has widely published and spoken on diverse legal topics.

On a selective basis, Tony also represents injured plaintiffs in serious medical malpractice and other personal-injury and wrongful-death cases, and he has achieved favorable results for his clients through settlements and verdicts. His medical malpractice cases have involved claims of failure to diagnose various illnesses, including cancers and other serious medical conditions; failure to provide appropriate post-surgical care; failure to properly read and interpret laboratory results and radiological scans such as x-rays, MRIs and CT scans; failure to recognize and diagnose child abuse and provide proper social services; failure to render appropriate medical treatment during a stress test; surgical malpractice; incorrect filling of prescriptions; inadequate and improper psychiatric and psychological counseling; negligent collection of blood by a phlebotomist and a blood collection organization; and failure to obtain a patient’s informed consent.

Tony’s dedication to the practice of law extends beyond the office and courtroom. He has been involved in pro bono matters including representation of a volunteer emergency-rescue worker injured at the World Trade Center on 9/11, an indigent and elderly woman who was being wrongly evicted from her home, and victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Tony served for four years on the governing council of the Health Law Section of the Massachusetts Bar Association, and five years on and as vice chair of the governing council of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Civil Litigation Section.

Tony is a member of Sugarman Rogers’s Product Liability practice group, and is co-chair of its Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury and Defective Drug and Medical Device Practice groups.
