Anthony received his Maters of Social Work from the University at Buffalo in 2023 and quickly joined the PREP team post-graduation. You will find him in our Buffalo office, and interestingly, he was born and raised in the city of Buffalo. Anthony has always had an interest in the intersectionality between law and society and the impact they have on each other. He utilizes a holistic approach when working with individuals he serves. Anthony also utilizes restorative practices when engaging with individuals at all levels. He believes that society has a job to restore those who caused harmed just as much as those who caused the harm. Anthony spent his undergraduate and graduate career enrichening his understanding of the legal system by completing four legal involved internships. Anthony most recently co-lead a 3-part youth diversion series that worked with youth involved in the legal system and the larger community to respond to crimes of car theft by discussing the wrongful action, explore the impact, and work towards repairing the harm in a way that leaves those impacted in better positions then when they enter the room.  Anthony solemnly believes that by taking accountability for ones actions and making actionable steps to repairing the harm done to oneself, the harmed, and the larger community, we make for a better tomorrow. During Anthony’s free time, he finds himself traveling, playing kick ball, enjoying the company of his dog, and making responsible, yet impulsive, memories that will last a life time.
