A San Joaquin Valley native, Tony chose a career in law after many years managing the family farm. He joined Lang, Richert & Patch in 2016 after graduating magna cum laude from the University of San Diego School of Law.

While in law school, Tony worked with a top San Diego litigation firm, interned for two federal judges, and honed his trial skills at 5 national mock trial competitions as a member of USD Law’s National Trial Team. He participated in USD’s appellate clinic and successfully appealed an immigration case to the Ninth Circuit, thereby obtaining relief for an indigent client who sought asylum in the United States.

Tony’s practice at Lang, Richert & Patch focuses on employment law and business litigation. His many years of experience managing employees and working in agriculture make him particularly suited to meet the needs of Valley business clients. Tony speaks fluent Spanish and Portuguese. He is admitted to practice before all California state courts and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.
