Schedule your free, 30-minute consultation during his regular business hours by using his on-line calendar, 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Dr. Anthes believes that wherever you come from, whatever your life circumstances, you rightly expect to be able to choose professional legal services from a variety of providers, including self-help. Human rights and constitutional rights are meaningful in the context of your ability to talk to a licensed legal professional, which is one of the main themes of his Ph.D. history dissertation from N.Y.U., published in 2003 as "Lawyers and Immigrants." Complementing his practice, Dr. Anthes regularly volunteers at the Los Angeles Law Library where he offers pro-bono legal consultations to the public. He also is a published author, who enjoys film, travel and the arts.

Since leaving academia in 2001, he published erotic short stories in magazines and anthologies, and he has written a novella, "Eighteenth & Castro" (2005), and two self-published novels, "Underneath" (2006, rev. ed. 2009) and "Fierce Stranger" (2013, rev. ed. 2019).
