I turned to Robert Ungaro when I had legal issues. He swiftly educated me to all my options and successfully help fix my problem.
I recommend him to all my fiends and family and would recommend him to anyone else if they need a great lawyer that will fight for them and never give up.

Strongly recommend! Great lawyer, he is no BS .
The whole staff is great and has a lot of knowledge!
Rob ungaro treats you like family who actually cares.
I have been to other local lawyers and I had to switch to Rob Ungaro!
He will not let you down and he's always available to talk!
Never rushed he will answer all your questions and give you advice.

I used Robert Ungaro for Social Security after receiving 3/4 from the FDNY for Line of Duty injuries. He was recommended to me by a friend at the UFA and when I asked around all I heard was good things about him. Robert was always on top of my case and there for me at every step of the way. He helped me get through a real problem with one of my doctors. Through the years I have sent many brother firefighters as well as personal friends his way and they all won their cases and couldn't say enough about his firm. With Robert you can rest easy and know you are in good hands. I am now using him for the Zadroga Bill.

I have worked with Robert on many matters over the last two decades. He is an extremely capable attorney who is devoted to his clients and who maintains an unmatched success rate in the area of disability law. His legal acumen is respected by his allies and adversaries alike.
