He has made it a responsibility in life to contribute on matters that affect the lives of other people especially the less privileged in a positive manner. Anthony Petrello changed perspective about life when he got his first daughter, Carena.

He moved to NY where he joined a law firm known as Baker &McKenzie. This is a firm he would work for before he finally moved to Nabors Industries in 1991. His first role at Nabors was that of the chief operating officer.
