When Joseph A. Romano Speaks...
We share our Founding Attorney’s words with you!
Read below as Joe speaks to us in his own words:
One solitary debilitating injury or chronic ailment has the potential to disrupt many lives.
“Joe, how will I support my family now that I am unable to work?"
I have heard this exact question many times over the past three decades. The names, faces and type of impairments may change, but their concerns remain the same.
In setting up a Workers Compensation or Social Security Disability Claim, I have been able to help thousands of people get themselves back on track. For me, it just never gets old.
My first law practice, originally based in Yonkers, New York back in 1986, quickly grew by word of mouth. By notoriously winning courtroom battles against all odds, calls for my help spread to jurisdictions beyond Westchester County.
My formula for success is as simple today as it was when I first began;
“Never give in to fear. Fight to win.”
Today, the Law Firm established in my name carries on the “fight to win” Romano Tradition.
With four conveniently located metropolitan offices, I’m able to help countless people with their various legal needs, throughout the Greater New York Area.
My greatest reward is that the dedicated team of Associates and Legal Professionals of Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. have evolved into the living embodiment of my own personal mission statement;
“Making a Real Difference for Real People.”
Whether for Hearing Loss or any other type of Occupational Disease, two specific areas of law we successfully handle involve the workplaces of those employed in the fields of Waterfront or Railroad Labor.
The Long Shore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act was drafted to develop a process separate from the traditional Workers' Compensation process.
If you were injured on the water, a pier, wharf, dry dock or terminal, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation for your lost wages and medical treatment.
The Federal Employers Liability Act, commonly referred to as FELA, was passed to ensure the protection of thousands of railroad workers.
As opposed to no-fault workers' compensation claims, a FELA claim must clearly show that the defendant was negligent.
Depending on the situation, the defendant can be the railroad company, the railroad's employees or an equipment manufacturer.
