Experience

Prior to joining Post Polak, Anton was a partner with DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP. He has significant experience with the construction phase of redevelopment/development. He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering with an emphasis on construction management.

Prior to practicing law, Anton was involved with various Newark school construction projects and the construction of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). Additionally, he is a former commissioner of the Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission and Zoning Board of Adjustment. He has worked as one of the lead attorneys on several transformative redevelopment and public works projects within the City of Newark.

In 2019, Governor Phil Murphy appointed Anton to the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund (“EOF”) Board of Directors. The EOF was created by law in 1968 to ensure meaningful access to higher education for students that come from backgrounds of economic and educational disadvantage, and to contribute to the development of a college-educated public that reflects the diversity of the State. It provides financial assistance and support services, such as counseling, tutoring and developmental coursework, for low-income New Jersey residents who are capable and motivated but lack adequate resources for college study.

In 2020, Anton was inducted into the Rutgers African-American Alumni Alliance Hall of Fame.
