Creator & Founder

Past, Present & Future

In 2004 Anthony was approached by his former partners of Class Action Refund to join a business which he had never heard of before; The Class Action Recovery Business. As Anthony attended a meeting and listened carefully. He immediately understood the magnitude of what was being presented to him and quickly decided to sign on to the company as a low level account executive & employee. Up until this point in his life, Anthony had only been self employed and involved in entrepreneurial endeavors, but knew that this was something he needed to be a part of even if at a ground floor level with all intentions to climb the corporate ladder as quickly as possible and hone his skillset as a Class Action Recovery Expert.

Although his former partners knew he would be an asset to the company based on his Motivation, ambition, work ethic and in depth understanding of the Class Action Space, they could of never imagined the immense value he would bring to the company in such a short period of time. He quickly became the top closer in the firm executing nearly 50% of all the firms contracts inside of his first 6 months of engagement. In less than one year from joining the firm he had began to invest his own personal capital and quickly became an equal partner gaining the Managing Director position of the fledgling startup.

From systems to operations Anthony did it all. Between his proprietary methodology in finding cases, ability to locate clients and a keen eye for hiring top quality staff, He quickly transformed the business into a well oiled machine producing millions of dollars in yearly revenue & championing a $175,000,000.00 gross recovery for the firm & their clients in one specific case (The Visacheck / Mastermoney Antitrust Litigation Settlement). In addition to years of research in the class action / antitrust realm of litigation, his sheer drive, determination, cunning business sense, & leadership skills, caused him to create the leading Class Action Recovery firm in the country while simultaneously and systematically pioneering the industry as a whole through 2015.

Anthony has taken his years of experience and innovative techniques in this market and has launched his newest venture, Slateshore Recovery (a division of Slateshore, LLC).

Anthony will not only focus on the class action claims recovery side of the business but will also be creating a new, very promising Division of the company called “Slateshore Capital Group”. This sister company will consist mainly of class action claims purchasing which is a fairly low risk investment Instrument for the right investors. This will create a mechanism for clients in distress to be able to receive funding of claims instantly, rather than deal with the uncertainty of the judicial systems sometimes difficult and time consuming payment process.

“Those who are certain in what they believe in can never fail as long as what they believe in has been self proven in the past”…. Anthony Picadio.
