Alfred M. Anthony, one of New Jersey’s most prominent mass tort and class action attorneys, heads the firm’s Roseland, New Jersey office and also works out of the firm’s New York City office.
Mr. Anthony has spent his entire career 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).
Mr. Anthony also has played key roles in 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.
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 again in 2019 and deputy mayor in 2015 and 2018. He and his wife Lori of 24 years have four beautiful children.

Conversations that originate from website messaging, chat or other two way web based engagement do not create an attorney client relationship. It is imperative that any action taken be done on the advice of counsel. Because every case is different, the description of awards and cases previously handled do not guarantee a similar outcome in current or future cases.
