Great consultation
Mr Romano took the time to answer my questions without even hiring him. I'm going to retain him for my workers comp case. He will make you feel comfortable not like other attorneys. Keep up the good work.

Really Awesome
Edgar took over my case from another attorney and the experience with him and his office was like night and day. He took care of us like family.. I recommend him 100 percent without reservation.

The Best!
Mr. Romano was truly amazing! From the moment we met him, we knew he was the right guy for the job. Mr. Romano walked us through the litigation process and kept us informed about the case from start to finish. Unlike, our past experience, he was extremely patient and would be glad to speak or meet with us. He dominated the Courtroom and the Judge kept turning to him for help on the law. We could not have been more happy! He truly cared about us and we can't thank him and his office enough!! We have referred our friends to him and they are equally happy and impressed.

Edgar Romano review
Ed Romano is among the most experienced workers compensation lawyers in New York. There is a reason why he and his firm have been repeatedly named among the best in this field. I was inured on the job and know firsthand that being hurt and finding yourself unable to work is a traumatic experience. Navigating the byzantine workers compensation system and fighting to obtain medical treatment and salary replacement can be exhausting and intimidating, especially when you are suffering and in pain physically. Eds's extensive expertise and his willingness to fight hard for his clients can make an awful experience more bearable. He is prompt in returning my calls and always makes me feel like I am his only client. I highly recommend him without qualification.

This lawfirm has not been helpful at all with my husbands case. Twice he missed a court case because he was never mailed a letter stating he needed to be in court. The people working there have no concern at all for their clients my husband went to their forest hills office and his lawyer is with another client, my husband can hear everything. Don't waste your time with these people
