Anthony was born in Aberavon and hails from a large sporting family of five brothers. He initially attended St Joseph's Roman Catholic Comprehensive school in Port Talbot before securing a Law Degree in Essex.
Articles of clerkship were undertaken in 1986 under the guidance of Mr Neville Walsh, the senior partner of Messrs. Howe, Walsh and Ambrose at Station Road, Port Talbot. Anthony qualified in 1988, and joined David W Harris & Co as an assistant solicitor in May 1991. Anthony was elevated to an Equity Partner in May 1994.
Initially dealing with criminal defence work, Anthony has over the course of the last 15 or so years combined his criminal practice with extensive personal injury work and general litigation, with a client base predominantly in the Port Talbot, Neath and Swansea areas.
Anthony still has a keen interest in all types of sport, having previously played both rugby and football to a competitive level. As a result of his playing activities and the associations he has made as a consequence, he currently represents a number of prominent professional sports persons.
Anthony is a life long supporter of Glasgow Celtic Football Club.
