Anton has provided legal services regarding the designation of redevelopment areas, rehabilitation areas, and redevelopment plans. He also defended against various challenges to redevelopment designations and redevelopment plans at both the Law Division and the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court.

He has worked as one of the lead attorneys on several transformative redevelopment and public works projects within the City of Newark.
In 2019, Governor Phil Murphy appointed Anton to the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund (“EOF”) Board of Directors. The EOF was created by law in 1968 to ensure meaningful access to higher education for students that come from backgrounds of economic and educational disadvantage, and to contribute to the development of a college-educated public that reflects the diversity of the State. It provides financial assistance and support services, such as counseling, tutoring and developmental coursework, for low-income New Jersey residents who are capable and motivated but lack adequate resources for college study.
In 2020, Anton was inducted into the Rutgers African-American Alumni Alliance Hall of Fame.
