Area of Focus: Land Development & Government Relations
Anthony’s background, prior to practicing law, as the founder of an internet startup gives him a unique perspective into the challenges that entrepreneurs face on a daily basis. Whether a client is buying, zoning or developing a property, or dealing with the inevitable disputes that can arise, Anthony is positioned to help his clients find a business-focused path forward.

In addition to practicing law, Anthony is an adjunct professor at the University of Miami School of Law in the Real Property Development Program. He also coaches entrepreneurs as part of the University of Miami’s Blackstone Launch Pad business incubator, an experience that continues to shape his thinking.
Q & A
What challenges do you see facing the Miami area?
One of the biggest challenges facing Miami is its lack of transportation infrastructure. I am very excited to be working on some of Miami’s key transportation-oriented development. Creating a better transit system for Miami is critical to its transformation into a world-class city.
What client relationship are you most proud of?
One of my clients is a long-time real estate developer. The relationship started out with one matter, but within a number of months the relationship grew. I helped them rethink the way they were using legal services as a business. Most recently I helped them with a government request for proposal on a $400 million redevelopment for a private-public partnership.
How have mentors shaped the way you practice law?
The culture at Bilzin Sumberg is unique. Training and education are built into the way we think about our work every single day. Almost everyone here is a mentor. My mentors have helped me learn more about communicating with clients and fostering relationships with the community outside the office.

Anthony is an adjunct professor of law at the University of Miami School of Law, Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Real Property Development. Anthony is also a member of the very small group of real estate development attorneys to hold an LL.M. from this distinguished program.


Anthony is a recipient of the Hispanic National Bar Association's 2017 Top Lawyers Under 40 Award which recognizes his outstanding professional achievements and his exceptional commitment to service.
