Anthony holds what has been reported by the press as the record for the largest personal injury jury verdict in the history of the State of Maine ($4.4 million).  In 2007, he was named by Lawdragon as one of the top 3000 personal injury lawyers in America.  According to Lawdragon’s website, the attorneys named to the list represent less than one-half of one percent of the legal profession, placing them among the most elite group of legal professionals.  In 2011, 2012, and 2013, Anthony was recognized as a personal injury "Super Lawyer" by New England Super Lawyers magazine.
