At the Vieira Law Firm, we care about people. Anthony Vieira, the firm’s founder, has helped hundreds of people who have been injured and/or have suffered loss due to the negligence of others. With genuine faith, heartfelt compassion, and a sincere desire for truth and justice, Mr. Vieira has brought together a team of highly-qualified attorneys and staff who care about people and the concerns that they have. Trusted and respected, this strong team is committed to helping their clients achieve the best possible outcome in their particular situation.
Anthony (“Tony”) Vieira was raised in the small town of Jacksonville, Illinois, just down the road from Abraham Lincoln’s New Salem Village. His “Grandma Vieira” was a Christian woman with extraordinary faith in God, who lived a life of integrity and selflessness in the midst of great poverty. She had 13 children, and she loved and gave of herself until the day she died. She is a special reminder to him of someone who understood what is important in life.
Tony’s mother raised five children of her own, and for over 40 years she taught and cared for many handicapped children through her work at the Illinois School for the Blind. His father, now retired, was a respected, hardworking laborer who worked from being a plumber, and later, a successful industrial plumbing, heating, and air conditioning contractor. During Tony’s teenage years, when he wasn’t playing basketball, he remembers working alongside his father helping him do everything a plumbing, heating, and air conditioning man does – from running water and sewer mains, tearing out heating and air conditioning systems, to pouring and breaking out concrete. In later years, because of his life’s work in the trades, Tony’s father developed asbestosis.
Mr. Vieira has a heart for the hurting. These are among many of the experiences that have shaped Mr. Vieira’s passion for vindicating the rights of injured people.

While in the Navy, Mr. Vieira received various awards for his trial representation, including an award from the U.S. Department of Justice for his outstanding work in a series of rape cases.
After he left the US Navy, Mr. Vieira worked for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office as a Deputy District Attorney. His experience included cases that received national media attention, including the prosecution of the retrial of the Erik and Lyle Menendez case, the “Wrong Way Murder Case,” and the “P9 Witness Murders.” He spent four years as a member of the elite Hard-Core Gang Unit, where he concentrated on conspiracy prosecutions involving murder, attempted murder, and robbery. Mr. Vieira was recognized through numerous awards for his work, including commendations from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the City of Pasadena.
