Anthony “Tony” Macauley grew up in San Francisco and attended a small, tuition-free all-boys high school, Lick-Wilmerding. Like 74 of the school’s 75 graduates, Tony went to college after he graduated. In his case, Tony moved to Berkeley and attended UC Berkeley.
He stayed in the East Bay area and started attending night law school at Golden Gate University. Mr. Macauley was licensed in 1987 and joined a large workers’ compensation defense firm. In an interesting twist, Kegel Tobin was actually formed from this same firm during the 1970s.
In 1991, Mr. Macauley helped that law firm return to the Southern California area to compete with Kegel Tobin and other defense firms. He became a partner and opened an office in Los Angeles for the firm in 1999, managing it until 2007. Tony resigned from that office in 2014. Just three weeks later, he started at Kegel Tobin.
