Tony Peluso currently practices law in Tampa, Florida, representing law enforcement in federal and state courts.

Born in Pennsylvania, Peluso grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, where he graduated from a Jesuit prep school. He dropped out of Arizona State University after his second year, and volunteered for the US Army. He served in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969 as an enlisted paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Separate). Intensely motivated by his war time experiences, Peluso returned to Arizona State University, graduated with distinction with a degree in history, graduated from law school, passed the Texas bar exam, and obtained a commission as a captain in the US Army, Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAGC), in 1975.

Peluso served 17 more years on active duty as a JAGC officer in different assignments, including tours with the 82nd Airborne and the 18th Airborne Corps. In 1992, Lieutenant Colonel Peluso retired to take an appointment as an assistant US attorney in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida. Peluso served more than 14 years as a federal prosecutor in the US Attorney’s Office. In 2006, he retired from the Department of Justice to assume his current responsibilities.
