Romano, P.C. — Making a Real difference for Real people.
Joseph A. Romano was born and raised in Yonkers to a family of lawyers and has close ties to the Bronx and Southern Westchester communities. Growing up, he delivered cookies, put Sunday papers together for the local deli, washed dishes for Wimpy's, worked as an East Bay Lodge short-order cook and busboy, served as a CBS stagehand, and worked for Congressman Peter Peyser. These experiences allowed him to understand the nature of many different industries and helped shape him into a forceful and compassionate advocate for workers' compensation matters.
During college, Mr. Romano lettered for three years in Division 3 Cross Country. He graduated cum laude from Hobart with a Bachelor of Arts in American History in 1982. Following college, he attended Albany Law School Union University, where he volunteered for the tax star program. He earned his law degree in 1985.
Mr. Romano understands all the options available to you as an injured worker. People who have been hurt on the job potentially have recourse to the workers' compensation system, SSDI, municipal disability pensions, and sometimes a personal injury lawsuit brought through the judicial system to obtain compensation. Our firm often works with municipal unions and the building trades. Unlike many other workers' compensation attorneys, Mr. Romano, and the firm are very familiar with union contracts and benefits, and how they can be affected by workers' compensation claims. Our knowledge of contracts can save workers a lot in the form of benefits and future work prospects.
The workers' compensation system provides cash benefits and medical care to employees who are hurt or made sick on the job. The system ensures that employees injured on the job are compensated without having to litigate their claims, and it is usually the workers' exclusive remedy. However, if a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, caused or contributed to the injuries suffered at work, a personal injury lawsuit may be appropriate, and would not necessarily be barred by the workers' compensation system.
If you are part of the New York City Retirement System, Mr. Romano can help you with civil service disability pension benefits. These are used to help those that belong to the New York City Retirement System who become disabled and are unable to work. This system is very complex. The type of disability pension for which you may apply depends on your "tier." This is determined by the day that you joined or rejoined the Retirement System. To receive these benefits, your accident must arise from a sudden, fortuitous mischance—an injurious event that is out of the ordinary. Any injury that happens without an unexpected event given the particular type of job will not be considered an accidental injury for purposes of recovery. Because the rules are complex, many of these cases must be appealed. Mr. Romano can help you throughout this process.
In addition to his law practice, Mr. Romano is an active contributor to community charitable initiatives, he supports the Teamsters Local 456 in their fundraising efforts for local community organizations including Maria Fareri Children's Hospital in Valhalla and Children's Hospital in Hastings, New York.
Mr. Romano is admitted to practice in the State of New York and Federal Courts in the Southern District of New York and the Eastern District of New York. He is a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers, the Workers' Compensation Bar, and the Westchester County Bar Association. With over 25 years of experience in workers' compensation, Mr. Romano can help you recover compensation for your injuries and take other cases to trial as necessary.

I worked at The Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. full-time
Coming in from a different field of law this firm really sets individuals up for success. The training team are very supportive. Learning a new field of law is something difficult but everyone is very helpful. Everyone has their own opinion but ultimately it is up to the individual to take the ball and run with it. Hard work is the only way you can succeed, in any business.
None. If you work hard there are no cons.
Advice to Management
Keep you the supportive attitudes, it really helped motivate me to strive to be the best at what I did.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. (Bronx, NY) in November 2017.
One on one interview with the supervising attorney. Average interview going over resume and experience with some follow up questions. Attorney explained the position and the firm. Turned it down due to low pay in the amount of USD 45K per year and overall reviews online of the firm.
