Antonio Díaz practiced law and was a prolific jurist in academic and specialized works, especially in the field of civil law in general, and of Galician regional law in particular. He was a member of Unión de Centro Democrático (UCD/Union of Democratic Centre), with which he attended and won a seat for Lugo in the Constituent Cortes of 1977. He renewed the seat in the next two calls, always for the same constituency and in the candidacy of UCD, in 1979 and 1982. He was a presenter in the Ley de Montes Vecinales (local common mounts) in the Congress of Deputies.

In 1988 the Government of Spain granted him the Orden del Mérito Constitucional (Order of Constitutional Merit). In 2012 and posthumously, the Ministry of the Interior awarded him the Cruz Distinguida de 1ª Clase de San Raimundo de Peñafort (First Class Distinguished Cross of San Raimundo de Peñafort).
