Alumnus Anthony Barone ’62 was featured in a Staten Island Advance article about his service to the Richmond County Bar Association.
Anthony P. Barone, is the youngest of three children to parents Domenico and Cristina Barone, and the only sibling born in America.
A Staten Island native, he grew up on Stanley Avenue in West Brighton, graduated Curtis High School, Fordham University and Fordham Law School, where he received his juris doctorate in 1962.
The Barone’s have always been a hard working family who hailed from Vinchiaturo in the Italian Provence of Molise, in Southern Italy, a tiny farming town.
Mr. Barone was the first in his family to go to college and become a professional. His dad was a self-employed sewer contractor and mom a homemaker who could never make enough food — with almost everything homemade and fresly picked from their garden.
Mr. Barone has been practicing law on Staten Island since 1964. He is admitted to practice in New York and in the United States Supreme Court.
During his 54 years of practice, he has had offices in New Brighton, Grant City and now New Dorp, where he’s been for 25 years. The firm that specializes in real estate, has been representing a number of clients for 30 years.
