After graduating Temple University Law School in Philadelphia PA, Anthony Lario was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1948. He was appointed as the City Prosecutor of Camden NJ on May 11, 1950. 

Anthony Lario's brother, Frank M. Lario, a 1930 graduate of the South Jersey Law School in Camden, was also a prominent local attorney. In 1954 the Larios represented the American Dental Association in a libel suit. The brothers partnered in a law firm with offices at 724 Market Street in Camden. By 1959 Anthony Lario was living at 3003 Waldorf Avenue in Camden NJ, where he remained into the early 1970s, before moving to Cherry Hill, and his practice to Haddonfield.

City Court Scene:
Barrington Man Given 30 Days for Bad Check

A Barrington man went to county jail for 30 days after Judge Dzick ruled him guilty of passing worthless check for rental of an auto.

The sentence- 30 days and $25 fine- was imposed on Ralph Visco, 35, of 338B Barrington Manor Apartments. Visco, police said, operates a filling station at 100 Grove Street, Haddonfield.

He was arrested on complaint of Augustus Gondolf; manager of an auto rental agency, 35 North 5th Street. Gondolf charged Visco tendered him a worthless check for $178 last December 10.

When arraigned today, Visco told Prosecutor Anthony Lario he wanted to make restitution and took a check from his pocket.

Dzick said he thought Visco had "a lot of nerve offering to make good on a bad check with another check" and added:  

"I'm getting a little tired of persons passing worthless checks and I don't care whether the checks are made good later ... the crime occurs when the check is first passed".
