Tuesdays with Tony, Part 1: Jersey Boy
Let’s get to know your lawyer a little bit, shall we?
Anthony Carbone is a true Jersey boy. He spent is early childhood in East Orange and at the age of 5, his family moved to Roseland. “At that time the town of Roseland was a farm town,” Tony says. “There was one traffic light in the entire town. Now it is the center of every major law firm in NJ. Yet I still remember that half of the police officers in town lived on my block.”
He attended school at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament grammar school where he served as an altar boy for four years. It was at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament where he discovered the beauty of good wine: “This is probably where I got my first taste of wine and my affinity for good wine.”
Tony attended West Essex Region High School in North Caldwell and graduated in 1979. Following graduation, Tony enrolled at Jersey City State College, graduating in 1984 and then finally left the state of New Jersey by attending Temple University School of Law. After graduating in 1988, he quickly returned to his beloved Jersey and raise a family and start his career in law.
