Peter was referred by a colleague of a family member to assist me with the violations my company made under the Family And Medical Leave Act. I hired him after our first consultation where he assured me that it wasn't if I had a case it was how long this case would it take to be resolved. My priority was for an amicable solution, and Peter agreed. Within a couple of months after filing the lawsuit, the company agreed to settle out of court, and Peter negotiated the settlement to meet my requests, as well as to compensate him for his diligence. I would definitely refer him to anyone in the same situation.

I had a problem with the company I work for. I was told that I would be shifted from exempt to non exempt. I did some checking on the web and found out that i was probable due some overtime pay. My company said no way. I thought about it and looked up a labor lawyer and found Peter.
He sent a letter to my company and they still said no. I then filed a law suit and we managed to settle the case
I have the highest respect for Mr Ramero

I highly recommend this attorney. He provided an excellent turnout for my case. Very knowledgable, professional and took the time to answer all my questions. He followed through on everything he said he would do for my case. He stated my case wiould have an under a year turnaround and it did. He delivers!

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
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.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Peter is an exceptional lawyer. He demonstrates consistent professionalism, dedication to his client and is a strong advocate. I highly recommend him on all employment matters including trials. He is experienced in representing both plaintiffs and management side clients.
