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, and other serious/catastrophic injuries.
In addition, Mr. Romano focuses his practice on pursuing liability claims and assisting trauma patients with discharge planning and identifying and securing “private funding” from third party private companies. This funding pays for needed supports and services and allows a family to care for their loved one at home during the time it takes to settle or try their case.
He has received awards and commendations from the American Trauma Society, The Brain Injury Association of America, The American Spinal Cord Injury Association, Phoenix Society (burns), and he was elected to the Pennsylvania Association of the National Head Injury Foundation Hall of Fame.
In 1996, Mr. Romano was selected as the only attorney along with medical experts in the field of traumatic brain and spinal cord injury to write a chapter in the medical treatiste Neurotrauma. His chapter is entitled Medico-Legal Aspects of Head and Spinal Injury. Since 1988 he has published over 300 articles and six editions of the Legal Rights of the Catastrophically Ill and Injured: A Family Guide.
