” 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″.
