Tony Szilagyi

In 2001, Dood & Wilson, PLLC folded their partnership, so Tony put out his own shingle and set up his office in the Glassen, Rhead building where he built his business with a lot of hard work and skillful practice of the law.

In 2003, Tony purchased Joshua House located at 110 South Clemens Avenue in Lansing and moved the business to this new location where it remains today. The firm employs an exceptional staff, while Tony's wife Sherri takes care of the billing and administrative needs. Their children, Ben & Olivia, also spend time at the office after school. They run a professional office while enjoying the perks of working with family and friends.

The firm has steadily grown each year due to everyone's continued hard work and dedication. They pride themselves on having excellent customer service and an outstanding reputation in the business and legal communities.

Tony's Experience

Before going to college, Tony spent one year in the US Army where he specialized in artillery. After one year of active duty, he enrolled in classes at Pennsylvania State University and transferred to ROTC for officer training. During his studies at Penn State he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army. In 1991, Tony graduated from Penn State University with a Pre-Law Degree.

His next eight months were spent at Fort Knox in Kentucky to complete his U.S. Army officer training. Upon completion he graduated at the top of his class and earned the Top Gun award as a Tank Platoon Commander. While applying for law schools, Tony worked in construction, giving him a unique perspective as a lawyer dealing with construction law and land development. He also worked as a substitute teacher.

In 1993 Tony was accepted to Thomas M. Cooley Law School and moved to Lansing, Michigan. After graduating from law school in September of 1996, he passed the Michigan State Bar in February 1997. He worked for Legal Aid of Central Michigan from 1994-1998, both as a clerk before graduating and as a staff attorney after passing the Bar, specializing in Divorce & Family Law, Landlord/Tenant Law, Civil Litigation and SSI/Disability Law.

Tony became an Associate Attorney at the White, Przbylowitz Law Firm in 1998 where he specialized in Employment Law for the Michigan Education Association and the Michigan Nurse's Association. As he realized that this firm was not where he wanted to be, he became an Associate Attorney at Dood & Wilson, PLLC where he specialized in Business Law, Construction Law, Real Estate Law, Zoning & Land Development and Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning. When Dodd & Wilson closed their offices in 2001, Tony began his own business.
