Knowledgeable and fast !
I had case for unpaid overtime and two other lawyers blew me off because it wasn’t enough. They didn’t even know details. I found Peter online , he responded fast and invited me in for a free consultation. He quickly knew all angles to build a decent case. I received a decent settlement in months , NOT YEARS. He is thorough and responsive and gave excellent advice. I don’t usually leave reviews but Peter truly deserves one for a job well done !

Review my experience
The lawyers I have dealt with in the past, have left me with no confidence or security. Mr. Peter Romero was very knowledgeable assertive and proactive. Whenever I called him and left a message, he would always return my call the same day. He discussed my options and answered all of my concerns. I highly recommend Peter Romero to anyone who needs a Labor and employment Litigator. I want to personally thank him for his professionalism and for making my case run smoothly and in a timely manner. Sincerly Bob

Consummate Professional
Working with Peter was an exceptional experience. Peter is highly responsive, supportive, compassionate, and produces quality, timely work. Peter was able to negotiate my separation with ease, and very favorable outcomes in less than 3 months. I am very grateful he was recommended to me!

Peter is the whole package!
After being misrepresented by a previous attorney, I was helpless but decided to get a second opinion and reached out to Peter, who was heavens sent. After my consultation, he was confident, he could fix the mess from the previous attorney and gave me the best possible outcome. Peter's extensive knowledge of the law and negotiation skills were phenomenal and it showed. He is professional, compassionate, articulate, attentive, and so much more that I could go on and on... That is why he is a cut above all others. Mr. Romero exceeded my expectations completely because he truly cared, he was one step ahead throughout the entire length of the case, and received the best legal representation. Thank you Peter!

It All Came Together With Ease
At first, I was just really upset and disappointed that an employer would let me go after all that was said and done. I knew they did me wrong. I told my story to another lawyer (a high school friend) and she immediately told me to do something about it. She referred me to Peter Romero. I’m so glad she did. I was very emotional when we first met, but he made me feel at ease with all of this. He asked questions to make sure I was okay and that understood what needed to be done in order to move forward. I appreciate his honesty, and you can tell he is a genuine person and a great lawyer.

Amazing Employment Discrimination Attorney
I endorse this lawyer. Peter is a smart and competent attorney who thinks outside of the box when working with clients and adversaries. He is professional and courteous, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney in this field.

More than I could’ve asked
I was seeking council about an issue with a former employer and ended up speaking to Peter. He was honest with me about the situation and informed me of things that were happening that I didn’t even know were going on. I hired him and any time I had a question/concern he would always call me back after getting my messages and was always willing to have a conversation. He never rushed me off the phone or made me seem like just another client. My case needed up going to mediation and he was on top of everything that was going on and being said and had nothing but my best interest in mind. I highly suggest him for anyone and if I ever need legal council again he will 100% be the one I call.

Professional, Experienced and Hard Working!
After some investigating online I found Peter Romero, I contacted him immediately and wqs able to meet face to face the next day. He took the time to listen to what I had been dealing with at my job that I had quit the previous day. Mr.Romero took all my information and explained everything possible. After keeping me informed of all the updates, and always replying to me, he was able to get a 15% increase from what the judge originally offered as a settlement. What happened to me at my previous place of employment shouldn't ever happen to anyone, but Mr. Romero helped me find contribution and justice, for which I will always be grateful.

Peter Romero is top-notch
Peter has far exceeded my expectations every step of the way. His professionalism and responsiveness left nothing to be desired. I truly appreciate the way he honestly and considerately discussed the strengths and weaknesses of my case. He also clearly set expectations regarding the arbitration process we were bound to follow, based on the policy of my former employer. With his guidance, we were successfully able to arrive at a resolution that left me with a sense of being vindicated. I couldn't ask for more. Many thanks.

Peter was great to work with - he kept me informed about what was happening with my case, asked the right questions, and kept things moving. He kept my expectations realistic, which is really important. I hope I don't need to hire him again, but I would no hesitate to do so.

Grateful!!
Peter is an excellent attorney with a compassionate side and complete understanding for your emotions as well as a thorough knowledge of law and best course of action. Always available! He totally helped me wrong a right! Peter helped me with a lawsuit against a large company for discrimination in employment in violation of Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, 42 U.S.C. § 1981 (“Section 1981”) and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (the “NJLAD”). I would use Peter again in a second!

Excellent
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.

Review of Peter Ramero
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 Ken

"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.
