Tony came to the bar after an extensive period of time working as an associate to his Honour Judge RG Williams at the County Court, where he was exposed to trial, plea and appeal hearings in the criminal division, and trial and application work in the civil division, working both at Melbourne and at circuit Courts.

Tony then came to the bar, reading with Chris O'Neill, now a judge of the County Court, gaining experience in the personal injury work before moving on to concentrate on develop his practice in criminal law and intervention order applications.

Tony has undertaken appearances as counsel in the Court of Appeal along with trial work as junior to Howard Mason, now also a judge of the County Court, and has in recent years concentrated his practice in the summary jurisdiction, conducting pleas and contested hearings in police prosecutions, local government prosecutions and government agency prosecutions, as well as private prosecutions involving intervention order applications.
