An active member of the North Carolina and Florida Bars and Retired Air Force Officer, Anthony Fisichella, Jr. currently operates a private practice in Arden North Carolina, just south of Asheville. He has dedicated himself to bringing all of his experience and expertise to bear in assisting residents of Buncombe and Henderson Counties with their legal needs. “The tireless and zealous advocacy of the residents of Western North Carolina is my first priority. I am honored to be a part of this community and privileged to serve.”
After his selection for promotion to Major, Tony instead chose to revive a childhood dream. He retired from military service in 2004 and shortly thereafter was accepted to Barry University School of Law in Orlando. Tony graduated in the top 10% of his class, garnering Cum Laude honors and counting among his other accomplishments, top honors in Trial Advocacy.
Despite the rigors of legal education and raising a family of six, Tony augmented his academic training and got his legal education where it really counts, working full time as a legal secretary in a small law firm in Cocoa Village, Florida. This ‘nuts and bolts’ experience gave him an uncanny perception of what it takes to properly and zealously represent clients in the often confusing and overwhelming world of transactional law and litigation.
Tony came to the practice of law from a broad core of experience that has left him uniquely equipped to recognize and handle a wide variety of legal challenges.
After enlisting in the Air Force he acquired an Associate’s Degree in Electronic Systems Technology, giving him the vocabulary and experience to delve into highly technical areas. Tony served for ten years as a Sergeant and precision electronics technician while simultaneously setting himself to completing his bachelor’s degree.
Tony honed his acute analytical skills at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs in pursuit of a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. He graduated with honors and immediately applied for a commission in the U. S. Air Force.
Tony was selected to Officers’ Training School and again distinguished himself, graduating with honors and for the next ten years served as a staff officer in a wide variety of leadership positions in Air Force Space Command and Air Force Recruiting.
Tony’s core of experience also includes a significant period of residential Home Building in Brevard County which left him well prepared for construction law issues.
Now Tony continues to serve the people of our community as we navigate the daunting rigors of our judicial system.
Tony is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, 28th Judicial District Bar Buncombe County, North Carolina, Florida Bar Association, 18th Judicial District Bar, Brevard County, Florida, and American Bar Association.
