He has experience with researching, editing and evaluating legal analyses, reviewing trial records, preparing pre-argument memoranda and drafting published and unpublished opinions for the court. 

Prior to joining Bowman and Brooke, Tony served as a law clerk to Chief Judge James E. Lockemy of the South Carolina Court of Appeals and as a staff attorney for the court. His work included multiple tort cases, including cases involving joint liability, premises liability and product liability. He also screened appellate cases for oral argument based on legal merit.
