About Me

Antonio DiMinno is a founder at DiMinno Rizzi Lawyers. His clients include entrepreneurs, businesses, investors, professionals, lenders, developers, and property owners across Ontario. Antonio’s practice also has a unique focus on real estate investing, helping real estate investors purchase in Ontario using strategies such as joint ventures, syndications, BRRRR, rent-to-own, lease options, fix-and-flip, assignments, and agreement for sale.

Antonio takes pride in working differently than most law firms. His guiding principles are open communication, personal service, and a genuine concern for his clients’ well-being. Antonio’s focus is solving rather than creating problems through practical, timely, and cost-effective solutions delivered in plain English. His clients’ success is his success, and he thrives on protecting their interests by being a trusted advisor every step of the way.

As an entrepreneur and real investor himself, Antonio understands the practical realities of business and believes in forging long-term, win-win relationships. He loves taking the time to deeply understand his clients’ businesses to help bring their ideas and plans to life. He does not work with those who place a low priority on integrity in business.

Antonio brings a strong understanding of the worlds of finance, business, investing, and sales alongside his legal expertise. He enjoys tapping into his network of people and opportunities in business and investor communities to bring good people together.

Legal Background

Prior to starting his own firm, Antonio worked for a leading boutique law firm in real estate law, business law, land development, and estates matters. He had the rare opportunity to work directly with seasoned lawyers from the beginning of his career. As a result, he obtained tremendous client-facing experience with individuals and small/mid-sized businesses from all walks of life.  His entrepreneurial spirit, passion for building rewarding relationships, and vision of what a modern law practice should be led him to start his own practice, rather than taking the traditional route.

Education

Antonio studied law at Osgoode Hall Law School, where he was President of the Legal Entrepreneurs Organization and was awarded the Rudolph P. Bratty course prize for highest standing in real estate law.

Prior to law school, Antonio obtained his undergraduate degree with distinction from the University of Toronto, Trinity College, majoring in English Literature and History. 

Antonio is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, Canadian Bar Association, and Ontario Bar Association.
