Named a Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ in the legal field, which is given to just 2.5% of attorneys nationwide, Anthony Geraci is the managing shareholder of Geraci in charge of firm strategy and development of Geraci’s team and culture. He is skilled in mortgage lending and securities law and has authored numerous articles on real estate finance and security subjects. Mr. Geraci is a leader in creating national mortgage pools and mortgage funds as well as sophisticated net branching arrangements among several mortgage companies.

What does that mean exactly? 100 attorneys and 100 consultants. Mr. Geraci is a prolific speaker and has spoken at several national conferences. His vision is to provide value and peace of mind to all Geraci clients nationwide.

In his free time, Mr. Geraci is a coach to his 8 year old son’s baseball team. He has a passion for baseball and loves working with his son. Mr. Geraci believes in teaching the kids teamwork and helping grow their baseball skills – a win is just icing on top of the cake!

Favorite Quote

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where—" said Alice. "Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat. "—so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
