About Arthur A. Duncan II Esq.

Arthur Anthony Duncan II, Esq. is an attorney in Buffalo, New York. He was born in Los Angeles, California but was primarily raised in Buffalo, New York by his grandparents. He is affectionately called Tony or Tone by close friends and family, as his father is known as Big Tony.

After graduating from 8th grade in Buffalo, Arthur left and moved back to Los Angeles to live with his mother and attend high school; where he had to endure the LA street gangs and a violent drug-addicted step-father. After graduating from high school in Los Angeles and briefly attending college, Arthur came back to Buffalo to visit and decided to stay. Thereafter, he joined a neighborhood drug gang and began to sell drugs with some childhood friends and was eventually incarcerated for 3 years.
 
Upon his release from prison, he was able to turn his life around despite many challenges and hurdles; hence the subject of his autobiography Felon-Attorney. Arthur graduated from law school at age 43 in 2012 and was sworn into the New York State Bar in 2013.
