Biography

Anthony A. Trask has been a trial lawyer for more than 20 years. His practice focuses on family law, criminal defense, and civil litigation involving contracts and property disputes. Although he spends most of his time in central and eastern Maine, Tony’s practice is truly statewide. He has handled cases in all of Maine’s 16 counties.

Tony is an active member of the Maine Trial Lawyers Association, the Aroostook County and Penobscot County Bar Associations, the John Waldo Ballou Inn of Court, and the Maine State Bar Association. He is a recurring faculty member at the MSBA Family Law Institute. He has published articles on various topics, including de facto parenthood and grandparents’ rights.

As a result of his experience and expertise, Tony was selected by Maine’s Supreme Court to serve on committees examining and improving family law, including the 2013 Family Division Task Force and the 2019 Advisory Committee on the Maine Family Rules. For the past decade, Tony has been a commissioner for the Maine Assistance Program for Lawyers and Judges (MAP), which confidentially identifies and provides assistance to members of the legal profession dealing with alcoholism, drug abuse, and mental or emotional disorders.

Tony was born and raised in Maine. As the son of a game warden, Tony lived in all corners of the State before his family settled in central Maine. He received a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Maine. Then, he earned his law degree at Suffolk University in 1995.

Tony spent most of the following decade in Boston, litigating civil matters of all kinds in Massachusetts’ state and federal courts. In 2004, Tony moved to northern Maine to practice with his brother at Currier and Trask. He spent six years doing trial and appellate work before joining Rudman Winchell in 2010.

When not at work, Tony enjoys distance running and hiking Maine’s mountains with his wife, Jacinda. However, the values nothing more than time with his son, Tyler, and daughters, Brooke, Paige, and Tatum.
