Got money from Detroit even with bankruptcy
He told us what would happen throughout, got an arbitration award from Detroit before bankruptcy and refused to take less when Detroit tried to get us to. He told us we were going to get them to pay 100% on Our case against the police. He was right! He knows the law and is always nice. Busy guy but he will get back to you. No BS

True advocate. Aggressive, caring, and tireless fighter for me
Did an amazing job. Two other lawyers told me that my injury was not serious enough to reach the Michigan Injury threshold. I almost ran out of time but made one last attempt with Romano Law. They filed just In time and I was awarded the other guy's insurance limits

Great Trucking Accident lawyer
Romano did an outstanding job recovering money for my family when the trucking company did not want to take responsibility. Very tough and willing to go all the way

Wrongful Arrest
wrongfully arrested, 3 days in jail, charges dropped. I contacted Romano Law and they sued the police for me. I received a large settlement for the pain and misery, loss of employment for my illegal arrest and detainment! Romano restored my faith in the justice system but never in the police!

Great Law Firm
A few months back I made some statements about Mr.Romano and his firm that were not true. I used Mr.Romano and his firm in a PIP case against AAA. My case was a hard case due to various facts about me. Mr.Romano and his firm did a great job on my case with what they had to work with. I would recommend Mr.Romano and all the lawyers at his firm to anyone. They are all very nice people. No one is making me write this,I just want to make things right about a great man and a great firm.

Great lawyers to fight the police
Aggressive, true advocate who cares for the client. Excellent and responsive support staff He took on the City of Detroit and made them pay for what their cops did to me.

Great Lawyer
This is the greatest lawyer I have ever met. Mr Romano and his law firm picked up my case after my previous lawyer dropped the ball and said nothing more could be done for me. Mr.Romano and his law firm are awesome. I do not know how to explain it they did more for my case in less than a month than my previous lawyer did in 2 and a half years. If you want quality caring results in your time of need go with Mr. Romano and his law firm you will be getting the best there is.

The truth came out Romano
You did fumble the ball on my case big time..... took a few years but a person came to me and told me I was right. No I won't smear the what was going on at the time. But I lost a lot leaving Swartz and Swartz. Don't say this is fake or someone you beat in court. You were in a bad place at a bad time. I am paying it for the rest ignition life because you had other issues. I called you out and you bullied me.. not professional at that time. Maybe now hindsight is 20/20 but to late for me. I hope you got what you needed. I pray for you and your wife.

Do not use for auto accident
He is the worst attorney. He yelled at me to take the money. I was very upset. He owns you. Very arrogant client controller. I tried to dispose of him he said I could not. Another attorney stuck up for me i because he was a no show. Worst time of my life. He knows why. He could have had video of accident but was too busy.. would have been a slam dunk. Thanks for all the paini am still enduring because you think you know it all. Well you screwed my case up. Hope you sleep well. I know I can’t. Shame on you your pawn.

This law office is a joke. As a business owner for the past 15 years, I have never experienced such lack of expertise when it comes to legal assistance. I have no earthly idea on how the others reviewed this person's business and put such nonsense. My experience with this firm over the last year was horrific. No one called and or even cared when my husband and I would combat them on not keeping up with our health status (dr. visits.) etc....the case as a whole. We never met Daniel G. Romano moreover recently found out he was our lawyer not the "glorified male receptionist" who couldn't cut it as a real lawyer and posing as our attorney. I thought living in Michigan was bad as a southerner... well I gotta say this law firm places the cherry on top of the whip cream! I never write reviews, but I have to do my duty as a person and let others know you will get the "run around" here. Eventually, they will close your case and say good luck with living. May G-d have mercy when it's Daniel G. Romano and his businesses time to be judged.

I have no idea who this person is but he is a coward. The person does not identify himself and likely is not a client, but a disgruntled competitor. The only case we lose are those where people who lie to us or get caught on video doing things that they say they say they cannot do. If this coward is real, the he is likely someone who had a bad result due to his bad acts or we withdrew because he lied

Attorney walk off the case right in the middle .....
I had the worst experience of my life with this firm. I spoke to Mr. Romano and he agreed his firm would handle my personal injury case on a contingency bases. I was never really defended or advised on anything. After Katrina received all of my documentation , and gave it to the other attorney, she basically walked off the case right in the middle of the settlement, jeopardizing my case. And I never received a dime. I was left with medical bills, and pain and suffering from the injury. My case was not handled with my best interest in mind. Please if you want your case to be handle right I would suggest finding someone else.

We withdraw from cases where people lie to us because we do not tolerate fraud. Probably this post is by someone of the above ilk
Posted by Bill | July 11, 2013
I agree
I hired this firm in the Fall of 2009 for a PIP case against my auto insurance company. I am disabled for life from this accident and suffered brain damage and it made my mental health worse. I turned over all bills I incurred and my caregivers submitted attendant care and they never got paid a penny.They do not communicate with you at all, I used to call and leave messages all the time and no one would answer. When I did get someone on the phone they were really rude.

This does not happen in our cases, EVER, UNLESS SOMEONE IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH. We represent thousands of people. Unfortunately, the happy ones seldom post

Save your money
In my opinion, this firm is more concerned about themselves then they are about their clients. The people at this firm are very arrogant and are more concerned with litigious actions against their clients than litigious actions for their clients. I and several other people have been threatened with legal action after complaining about their shoddy work.

Clearly, this person was not represented by U.S., we do not charge any money unless we collect. So there is no money to save. What crap we have to contend with with faceless posts

Civil Tort Case, Dismissed with Prejudice because Romano even didn't appear to the Court
I made a contingency fee agreement for legal services and trusted his law firm. They assured me that I didn't need to appear to the court and they would handle the case. But they even didn't appear to the court, so my case was completely dismissed without prejudice. I asked him to file a motion to reconsider and I'll obtain a new lawyer. Of course, they didn't. Don't hire them if you expect a reliable lawyer.

this is a patent lie
Posted by Jason | October 13, 2011
This law firm and this attorney do a pitiful job of keeping you informed. His staff of attorneys are not helpful, they appear almost uneducated. My case was handled poorly and of course we lost because of the sub par work of this law firm. They never asked any questions and really did not know or understand my case. I tried to share as much as I could with them so they would understand this very complicated case. Never called me back, never answered my emails. I would steer clear of ROMANO LAW FIRM

Who is this liar.!? You know who I am. I have collected millions for deserving people. I doubt this post was drafted by anyone I represented. Maybe by someone we beat in court
