As leaders in upscale focused litigation aimed to establish financial stability to the injured and disabled, our compassion and empathy for those unable to work, is what sets our practice apart. 

We are inspired by Founding Attorney, Joseph A. Romano, Esq., (You may simply know him as Joe). Joe’s personal motto, derived from decades of advocating justice and winning for his clientele from all walks of life, has become the company’s mission statement;and serves as our inspiration.

“Making a Real Difference for Real People.”

 The Federal Government, through the Social Security Administration (SSA) offers two benefit programs for individuals who are unable to work:

Social Security Disability (SSD)    

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) 

Both programs are available to those who meet the qualifying requirements.

Filing a claim on your own is possible, but it is advisable to allow our legal experts to guide you.

The Social Security Disability Team at Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. takes immediate action to streamline the process of your SSD and SSI claims and gets you back on track financially.

We offer a free consultation that will help you understand your best options, and the initial questioner process.
