Picture of M. Anthony Brown

M. Anthony ("Tony") Brown is a partner in JMBM's Corporate Defense and Investigations Group.

A former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Central District of California, Tony has investigated and tried cases involving mail, wire, and bank fraud, drug trafficking, human trafficking, child sexual exploitation, and violent crimes. As a federal prosecutor, Tony handled close to 50 appeals and ten oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, including the only appeal from a federal death sentence in the Central District of California.

In private practice, Tony has handled a broad range of civil matters, including appeals before the Ninth Circuit, the California Supreme Court, and the California Courts of Appeal. Tony's wide-ranging experience in both civil and criminal matters, at both the trial and appellate stages, makes him a uniquely qualified trial attorney, trial consultant, appellate advocate, and advisor for clients and their businesses as they seek to comply with government regulations and conduct internal investigations.

Tony received his J.D. from UC-Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law. He clerked for the Hon. James R. Browning of the Ninth Circuit. Before embarking on his legal career, Tony completed a Ph.D. in English at UC-Berkeley and taught Expository Writing at Harvard University.
