Biography

Troy G. Rosasco is one of the leading 9/11 attorneys in the nation. He has been representing the 9/11 community from the beginning - soon after that tragic day. In October 2001, Troy was asked to represent the family of a victim who died when the buildings came down. He was able to obtain the family significant compensation and burial benefits. As he did with all his 9/11 cases at the time, he waived his legal fee. For over the last 21 years, he has represented 9/11 victims and their families and has the experience necessary to obtain maximum compensation from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

A graduate of Cornell University and St. John’s University School of Law, Troy has written extensively on the 9/11 claims process and frequently lectures to the public and other attorneys. Troy has appeared on NBC News, ABC News, and Fox News discussing 9/11 claims. Troy has been quoted on legal issues in the NY Law Journal, NY Times, NY Daily News and Newsday. Troy has been consistently selected by his colleagues as a “Super Lawyer” in the area of mass and toxic torts for his representation of 9/11 first responders, residents, and workers in Lower Manhattan who were exposed to toxins.

Troy is a former Adjunct Professor at St. John’s University School of Law where he taught about the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and disability law. Giving back to the 9/11 community, he and his wife have established the endowed Troy & Linda Rosasco 9/11 Memorial Scholarship at St. John’s School of Law for students with financial need.

Troy has wide experience in helping clients coordinate all 9/11 related legal claims associated with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, including Social Security Disability benefits, New York State Workers’ Compensation benefits, New York City and New York State disability retirement pensions, Public Safety Officers Benefits (PSOB) and other benefits.
