    I was privileged to work under Peter's tutelage as an Associate in Long Island, New York. To this day, I consider him to be my role model. I have personally seen Peter work tirelessly for his clients, leaving no stone unturned. He is simply a natural and does not stop working until he is completely satisfied with his work product. With a combination of intellect, up-to-date knowledge of the law (including its nuances) and wit, I have observed him tackle and subdue the position of attorneys from white shoe law firms. In negotiations and at trial, he articulates his position with utmost resolve and persuasion, obtaining higher than expected results for his clients. With that said, it is no surprise that Peter has a very high success rating in achieving settlements and verdicts on behalf of employees, assuring his clients that he leaves no money on the table. If you hire Peter A. Romero, Esq. you can rest assured you have a tough negotiator and litigator by your side.
