Aside from being a lawyer

  • I’m married to my beautiful wife Nicole. My wife and I have welcomed our first daughter, Lia Kate, to our family! See attached. Lia Kate was born in May 2018 and keeps us both on our toes!
  •  We like cooking together and eating at new restaurants but love our favorite local places as well.
  • I like boxing and trying to stay healthy. I hope to fight again in a charity fight next year. Charity work has had a true impact on my life.
  • Growing up playing handball, I never thought I would say this, but I really like playing golf.
  • I spend time with my family and friends. Most of my family lives nearby. We spend a lot of time together celebrating occasions and also helping each other (snowplowing and painting).

The reasons I like practicing law

  • I really enjoy coming up with creative and “outside-the-box” ways to advocate for our clients and get them the best result.
  • I enjoy fighting for the rights of people who are injured, neglected or have been taken advantage of and helping them to get justice and compensation.
  • I am a comfortable “underdog” in a case. As a Plaintiff’s attorney, we often are. With my team, we don’t cower to big corporations and insurance companies.
  • I like to think outside of the box to come up with innovative solutions to obstacles facing my clients. If there is a will, there is a way; that is the truth.

I believe

  • Being a lawyer involves having common sense and street-smarts. Cases are not won just on the law but what the other guy has to lose or gain.
  • My clients should be treated like people not as potential profits.
  • Being prepared and being on time.
  • Thinking big and thinking positive, always.

Before I became a lawyer

  • I grew up in Franklin Square; a small working-class neighborhood on Long Island.
  • I graduated St. John’s University in Queens as an economics major.
  • I then went to night school for 6 years while working full-time to attain my MBA and later my Law Degree from Hofstra Law School.
  • I started working at an early age and never really had just ONE job. I was a paperboy at age 11 (do kids even do that anymore?).
  • I did tree-removals for 8 years starting at the age of 16, worked as private security at various venues in Manhattan, and worked for major corporations in both finance and sales, before becoming a lawyer.

After I became a lawyer

  • After graduating law school, I founded my own practice, Romano & Associates in Garden City, NY.
  • After practicing law for more than 5 years I joined as a partner to form Wisell, McGee & Romano, LLP in Queens, NY.
