Attorney Anthony A. Ferrigno brings more than 40 years of experience to bear on the firm’s clients’ legal matters. The firm serves both those wishing to prosecute their own claims, as well as those who need assistance in defending suits filed against them. While a full-service law firm, its emphasis is business litigation.
Starting with his earliest academic achievements and right through the cases he is currently litigating, excellence in performance while maintaining the highest ethical standards is Attorney Ferrigno’s stock in trade. That commitment to excellence, coupled with hard work and discipline towards achieving best results, was reflected early, as he graduated with honors from one of the Bay Area’s most highly regarded academic institutions, San Francisco’s Saint Ignatius High School. There, hard work as captain of the track team also led to his twice achieving All-State honors as a distance runner. To this day, his pastimes include running and golf, and he and his wife spend spare time reading, writing and with their precious family dogs and traveling for visits with their children in Tennessee.
Attorney Ferrigno worked his way through college, graduating in 1965 from the University of California at Berkeley, earning a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Psychology and Liberal Arts. Thereafter, after spending some time doing graduate work in psychology at San Francisco State College, he and his wife, Dana, to whom he has been married over 40 years, started their family, raising two children, while he continued to work as a probation officer by day and attended a full-time law school curriculum by night. In 1974, he graduated near the top of his class from one of California’s most prestigious law schools, Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles. That same year he passed California’s State Bar examination and was admitted to the practice of law. He is admitted to practice before all Courts in the state of California, including the Federal Court. He has earned admission, as well, to the United States Supreme Court Bar.
Attorney Ferrigno has earned the highest recognition in his profession as reflected by the ratings he has received in ethics and performance by both peers and clients. He continues to achieve their highest marks, as published by Martindale-Hubbell, the best recognized lawyer rating firm in the nation. From a time commencing in the late 1970s, when he achieved the highest settlement then ever recorded in a wrongful death cases in California, through the late 1980s and into the 1990s, during which time he won multi-million dollar jury verdicts against Fortune 500 companies on claims including trade secret misappropriation, fraud and breach of contract, and settled huge class action anti-trust claims on behalf of small business owners and consumers; and, into the present, as lead counsel coordinating a legal team composed of attorneys from five separate law firms in prosecuting class actions, again representing small businesses as well as consumers, against one of the major technology companies in the Silicon Valley; and, while being a prominent member of another legal team litigating claims in the cell-phone industry. Attorney Ferrigno continues to litigate cases at very highest level of performance. At the Law Offices of Anthony A. Ferrigno, client matters are always treated with commitment to excellence.
