Anthony is an excellent litigator with a proven record of success. Mr. Coccerino began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in Montgomery County. While there, Anthony excelled in prosecuting sex crimes, major crimes, and crimes against children. Working closely with law enforcement officers, Anthony developed his cases from the ground up – using advanced investigative techniques to ensure all evidence was uncovered and utilized from filing to trial. Anthony had tremendous success in the courtroom as well as with negotiating equitable resolutions with opposing counsel. More than anything, he took pride in always taking time to explain the process to victims and their families so that they felt supported and were in the best position to thrive once justice was secured.

Anthony later transitioned to a prominent insurance defense law firm in Montgomery County. There he learned how to apply all of his training to the civil arena, handling complex legal malpractice claims. He also handled a large volume of motor-vehicle accidents for a major commercial transportation agency. Anthony uses all procedural tactics available to secure early dismissal of cases where possible. He also believes in engaging in effective motion practice to secure competitive advantages in litigation. When resolution is necessary, Anthony works with opposing counsel to determine how best to resolve cases in a manner that is fair and just for all parties.

Anthony prides himself on working tirelessly to ensure that his cases are handled in a thoughtful and exceptional manner. He also makes sure that his clients are always consulted and informed so that they may work in a collaborative manner to achieve the client’s goals.

When Anthony is not litigating cases, he is teaching the next generation of trial lawyers at the Beasley School of Law at Temple University. As an adjunct faculty member and coach of the National Trial Team, Anthony is responsible for teaching second and third year law students the principles and mechanics of trying cases, including how to master the rules of evidence. Anthony’s career as a coach was a natural transition from his career as a competitor in law school. As a student, Anthony won a national trial competition and was awarded for being the Best Advocate in the Final Round of competition. He also won various awards and honors throughout law school for his excellence in trial advocacy.
