Anthony A. Trask has been a trial lawyer for more than 20 years. His practice focuses on family law, criminal defense, and disputes involving contracts and property. Although Tony spends most of his time in central and eastern Maine, his practice is truly statewide. He has handled cases in all of Maine’s 16 counties, which is easier now that many court proceedings are conducted by telephone or video conference.
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 and has published articles on various topics, including divorce, child custody, alimony, child support, de facto parenthood, and grandparents’ rights.
As a result of his experience and expertise, Tony has been 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, substance 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 & Trask, where he spent six years doing trial and appellate work before joining Rudman Winchell in early 2011.
When not at work, Tony enjoys distance running and hiking Maine’s mountains with his wife Jacinda. However, there is nothing he values more than time with his son Tyler, twin daughters Brooke and Paige, and daughter Tatum.
