Experienced attorney Anthony A. Capetola founded his Williston Park law firm, The Law Offices of Anthony A. Capetola, in 1976 with the goal of providing the residents of Long Island's Nassau and Suffolk counties with high-quality legal services in the areas of matrimonial and family law and criminal defense. In the nearly 40 years that have passed since his firm's doors first opened, he has earned a reputation as a leader among New York attorneys.
Mr. Capetola began his legal career in 1971 after earning his Juris Doctor from New York Law School and his approval to practice law in the state of New York. In addition to his approval to practice before all of New York's state courts, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York also approved him to practice in their courtrooms.
Attorney Capetola's legal experience is not limited to private practice. He spent two years at the Nassau County District Attorney's Office where he served as assistant district attorney, and he also taught at Widener Law as an adjunct professor. His experience and extensive knowledge have made him a regularly requested guest speaker on legal topics and led to his appointment as a Special Referee for matrimonial cases by Nassau County's Matrimonial Center, which is a branch of the New York Supreme Court.
