Caring for People
Anthony ("Tony") Vieira was raised in the small town of Jacksonville, Illinois, just down the road from Abraham Lincoln's New Salem Village. His "Grandma Vieira" was a Christian woman with extraordinary faith in God, living a life of integrity and selflessness in the midst of great poverty. She had 13 children, and she loved and gave of herself until the day she died. She is a special reminder to Tony of someone who understood what is important in life.
Tony's mother raised five children of her own and also adopted one, and for over 40 years she taught and cared for many handicapped children through her work at the Illinois School for the Blind. His father, now deceased, was a respected, hardworking laborer who worked as a plumber and later as a successful industrial plumbing, heating, and air conditioning contractor. During Tony's teenage years, when he wasn't playing basketball, he remembers working alongside his father, helping him do everything a plumbing, heating, and air conditioning man does - from running water and sewer mains and tearing out heating and air conditioning systems to pouring and breaking out concrete. In later years, because of his life's work in the trades and exposure to asbestos containing products, Tony's father developed asbestosis.
Anthony Vieira has a heart for the hurting. These are among the many experiences that have shaped his passion for protecting the rights of injured people and their loved ones.
