Anthony began his career as a prosecutor in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office from 1990-1994. In this role he gained extensive trial experience and earned a reputation as an aggressive prosecutor who zealously advocated for victims and held criminals accountable for their actions. From there, Anthony took a position with the civil litigation firm of Friedman, Hirschen, Miller, Coughlin and Campito, where he defended individuals and organizations in a wide variety of civil litigation matters.
In 1996 Anthony joined the Office of General Counsel for New York State United Teachers, where he would spend the next 22 years of his career representing individuals and unions in a wide array of labor law and education law matters. This included handling matters before State Courts (trial and appellate), Federal Courts (trial and appellate), the NYS Commissioner of Education, the NYS Public Employment Relations Board, and numerous arbitrators and hearing officers.
In March 2018 Anthony retired from NYSUT and took a position with Capital Region BOCES where he began his career representing school districts in labor relations matters. This has included collective bargaining, contract interpretation, grievance processing, investigating and prosecuting discipline and discharge cases, providing guidance and advice on labor and education law issues, and providing training to school district staff.
In July 2019 Anthony opened The Law Office of Anthony J. Brock with the goal of building a practice focused on high quality representation of employers while simultaneously building positive employer-employee relations. Zealous advocacy can and should be handled with respect and courtesy for your employees and labor partners. Maintaining a high degree of professionalism in all matters is a cornerstone of the practice.
