Meet Troy Rosasco
Troy Rosasco, Founding Partner and 9/11 Attorney
Troy G. Rosasco is one of the leading 9/11 attorneys in the nation. Troy was recently selected by his peers as a 2018 and 2019 “Super Lawyer” for his representation of 9/11 first responders, residents, and workers of Lower Manhattan who were exposed to toxins below Canal Street. Additionally, he has represented survivors of the attacks at the Pentagon.
Troy is a founding partner of Hansen & Rosasco, LLP, and he has been representing 9/11 victims and their families since October of 2001. If you have become ill as a result of exposure to the air at Ground Zero, Troy understands your health concerns and has the experience to get you the compensation and health care you deserve from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) and the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP). He has wide experience in helping clients coordinate all claims associated with the Victim Compensation Fund, including Social Security Disability and other benefits.
Troy’s Impact in the 9/11 Community
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 VCF. He frequently lectures to other attorneys and courts about the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and the World Trade Center Health Program.
Troy always tries to listen and 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, or 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.”
This same compassion and pride is shared among all of the 9/11 attorneys at Hansen & Rosasco, LLP.
Troy's Impact in the Legal Community
