In addition, access to forensic specialists such as trusted accountants and appraisers is often a must. David Anton has approximately 30 years of experience as a business owner. He has been the owner of the Anton Legal Group for approximately the last 20 years, and has been an owner and the president of Cigar City Investment Company, a local real estate development and management company, since 1986. As for education and training, Mr. Anton received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Florida in 1981 with a major in economics and an emphasis on accounting. Thereafter, in 1984 he received his law degree, again form the University of Florida.
Mr. Anton has a fundamental understanding of the real value, or lack thereof, of a small or medium-sized business.
