Biography:  
  
Tony Scheer owned and managed a water sports store for several years after college. As a certified scuba instructor, Tony trained several hundred people to dive and led dive expeditions all over the Western Hemisphere. In 1989 at the age of 32, Tony fulfilled a long-time desire and enrolled at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
 
In 1993, Tony became a prosecutor in the District Attorney's Office. He spent approximately one year handling misdemeanor offenses (from traffic tickets and DWI to domestic assault and gun crimes). After a tour of duty on the felony prosecution team, he spent the final two and a half years of his career as a DA prosecuting exclusively violent felonies such as robbery, rape, and murder.
 
Tony joined Rawls, Scheer, Foster & Mingo, PLLC in 1997 and practices criminal defense and whistleblower representation. In the early years, Tony handled all crimes from traffic offenses to murder. His criminal practice is now almost exclusively felonies in the State and Federal Courts. He has extensive training and experience in forensic evidence (including DNA, fingerprint, firearms and toolmark identification, blood spatter, forensic accounting, and other disciplines). Tony is also one of only a very few lawyers in North Carolina who maintains an active practice in representing people who blow the whistle on fraud against the Government under the Federal False Claims Act.
 
Professional and Community Involvement
Tony is a Board Certified Specialist in State and Federal Criminal Law and is a member of the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers, and National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He also serves on the Mecklenburg County Drug Treatment Court Board, Criminal Justice Partnership Advisory Board, and Board of Directors of Summit House.
