TROY G. ROSASCO is a leading 9/11 lawyer in the nation and was recently selected by his peers as a 2018 Super Lawyer for his representation of 9/11 first responders, downtown residents and downtown workers who were exposed to toxins in Manhattan below Canal Street and at the Pentagon. He is a founding partner of Turley, Hansen & Rosasco, LLP. Troy has been representing 9/11 victims and their families since October 2001. He understands your health concerns and has the experience to get you all the compensation and healthcare you deserve from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and the World Trade Center Health Program.

When other lawyers need to learn about the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, they turn to Troy G. Rosasco. He is an Adjunct Professor of Law at St. John’s University School of Law where he has taught about the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. He frequently lectures to other attorneys and courts about the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and the World Trade Center Health Program.
Beside his legal skills, Troy is known for his compassion and always tries to speak to his clients personally:
” As sad as my job can be at times, it also gives me great satisfaction to give clients and their families a leg up when they are up against the wall, either economically, medically or both. I recently represented a 9/11 laborer who worked at Ground Zero for almost six months. He suffered from a 9/11 related lung disease known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder, also known as COPD. Prior to our law firm getting him his 9/11 compensation award, he was living in his “storage unit” and was washing up each day at a local McDonald’s. When we called him to tell him his money was on the way, he was so grateful and appreciative on the phone. This all happened on a Friday. It made my weekend and reminded me why my law firm does 9/11 claims. We make a difference in the lives of the heroes who rebuilt New York City after 9/11″.
As a 9/11 lawyer, he wrote his first legal article about 9/11 benefits in October of 2001 and has continued to write about 9/11 Zadroga Act through 2018. In addition, Newsday, Fox News, ABC, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Telecare TV have interviewed him and his clients on 9/11 related cancer claim matters.
