    I can't say enough about Robert, he is definitely an expert in his field. He is knowledgable and very easy to talk to. He makes you feel confident in his ability right off the bat. I was recommended to Robert by my wife's company. After we had our first meeting we connected easily.
    Robert has represented me since 2013, when I started looking for my first storefront. I did find potential locations and when we were at the point (more than once) of signing a lease, Robert was able to explain to me in plain English that the leases were not in my favor. I remember this when he said to me "This people want you to to fail before you even open the store"
    Well, finally in 2014 we were able to find a good location for my business and he did what he does best and helped me make the best deal I could. He is still representing me in other areas, and I would recommend him to anyone.

    On short notice, I, along with two other local retailers, hired Bob to represent our interests in opposition to a new application. With his expertise and experience in the licensing process from both perspectives, Bob researched our situation, found data to support our opposition, and presented a case that resulted in a favorable outcome for the existing retailers. He worked hard -- and most importantly, successfully -- on our case on short notice. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    We Hired Robert Romano to assist us in getting our liquor license. He was very helpful and well versed on topics relating to the liquor authority requirements. Mr. Romano drove six hours to meet us in person. At the hearing, Robert remembered all of the little things that we talked about and used that information to personalize our request for a liquor license.
    We were attending the hearing on video from Buffalo and were very nervous at the beginning of the trial but those feelings went away when we saw Robert facing the commissioner and deputy.
    Mr. Robert Romano did exactly what we needed him to do, we were approved. We are going to maintain our relationship with him for any future assistance as we begin our journey in the retail liquor industry.
    Thanks.

  • It doesn't get any better than Bob Romano!!

    Another attorney referred Bob Romano to me for help obtaining a liquor license. Because of the business I was in, getting the license was far from guaranteed. I can't say enough good things about working with Bob. He is straight-forward, honest, available, organized, fair and knows the liquor licensing process backwards and forwards. He kept me appraised of our progress the whole way though and was honest about any possible road bumps. He said that he has never failed to procure a liquor license for one of his clients and I believe it! We were a fairly high maintenance proposal and he handled everything efficiently and made it look easy. I can't imagine we would have gotten our license if I had chosen another attorney. Bob was an absolute pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    Bobs responsiveness, attention to detail, and knowledge set him apart from the rest. He not only handled my liquor license with ease but got me the best deal possible with my Fortune 500 landlord. Lease negotiations went off without a hitch thanks to his expertise. I truly couldn't have done it without him.

    Mr. Romano is an incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and proactive straight shooter. Bob helped me through a sticky lease situation for a Liquor Store and brought swift conclusions with outstanding results. Bob is down to earth and has an amazing ability to translate complicated legal situations to a level that not only could I understand but ultimately benefit from greatly. When seeking an Attorney to obtain your Liquor License, there is simply NO ONE better to have in your corner. He’s your Attorney and your Partner and will navigate you through the astoundingly complicated task of obtaining your license.

  • Review for Robert Romano NYSLA

    Posted by Paolo

    Mr. Romano (Bob), helped us thoroughly in obtaining a NYS Liquor Permit. He walked us through the process, which in our case included some extra details. He was hard working, and a pleasure to work with. He is a true professional who is dedicated to his clients. I would recommend him without any reservations. My business partners and I felt as if Bob focused all of his attention on our case, and for people who don't know the particulars of this application, it put us at ease.
    Thank you.

    I worked with Bob Romano on getting our approval with the State Liquor Authority (NY) and it was nothing short of a pleasure to deal with. He answered his phone every time i called, was responsive to emails and was extremely professional and capable.

    I would refer him without reservation to anyone needing his services.

    My husband and I hired Robert Romano to handle a business deal for us on the recommendation of a professional that we trust.
    Mr. Romano is extremely knowledgeable, but if he isn't sure about something, he immediately does his research so that he knows exactly what he is talking about. I found this very reassuring. If I called with a question, he either got back to me right away, or called to let me know that his schedule was so booked that he would get back to me the next day.
    The one word I would use to describe Robert is "conscientious". He really does care about getting things right for his clients. I've had enough experience with attorneys that I consider that fact alone quite remarkable.
    I also really appreciated the fact that his rates are so reasonable. If he talks to you for 5 minutes, he doesn't round that up to a quarter hour and then bill you $100 for your 5 minute call, which plenty of attorneys consider standard practice. That said, of course, Mr. Romano does not have time to listen to clients go on and on, so as in any client/attorney interaction, he mostly needs to stick to the matter at hand.
    Over time, though, my husband and I both started thinking of Robert as kind of like a really fun acquaintance because he is just a pleasure to be around. He has a great sense of humor - with a slightly 'dark' edge to it - but what other kind of humor could an attorney have?
    Robert is extremely responsible and fair.
    My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone in need of a business attorney.
