Anthony with Downing Van Dyke was an ABSOLUTE Rockstar! When I first came to him, I was upset and confused. He walked me through everything and made me feel so at ease about the whole process. After submitting all my information to him, he was so knowledgeable and brought to light additional issues with my case. He was funny, knowledgeable, and committed to putting us first and making sure we were set up for success. Anthony is a character and I enjoyed working with him so so much! Thank you for being our advocate for us and our case!

- Client

Anthony is a knowledgeable and expert attorney. He walked me through everything and made me feel at ease at every hurdle through the whole process. As an inexperienced landlord, I certainly leaned on his expertise. Not only did he address my every concern, but he went above and beyond negotiating bills for me and was on top of the entire case/details/correspondence. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with Anthony’s knowledge, commitment, responsiveness and his great sense of humor. He is an Ace of Spades. I enjoyed working with him immensely. I would highly recommend Downing Van Dyke, LLC.
