Attorney and Advocate for the Seriously Ill and Injured
“Most liability lawyers simply guide accident victims through the courts. Joseph Romano is a liability lawyer with a modern – day twist: He also guides his clients through the mazes of managed care”.
“The Patients – To their Defense”
Wall Street Journal
Joseph L. Romano
Joseph Romano is a nationally known attorney/advocate whose practice is limited to the representation of children and adults with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, burns, Cerebral Palsy, and other serious/catastrophic injuries.
