In the Media

Michael Barasch and Jim McGarry have been interviewed on TV and radio as well as in dozens of newspapers, describing the work done by our NYC personal injury law firm to preserve rescue workers’ legal rights.

After representing thousands of New York City firefighters for nearly two decades, we thought we had witnessed the limits of human courage. However on September 11, 2001, we understood as never before that the bravery of our lion-hearted firefighters knows no limits.

In our city’s time of greatest need, New York’s bravest did not hesitate. They did not falter. Lawyers are men of words. However today, we have no words to express the depth of our gratitude and our grief. We men of words have been silenced by their heroism, by their patriotism.

We give thanks to the men and women who continue to do all that they can in the wake of this tragedy. Thank you to the firefighters, the police officers, EMS, the iron and construction workers, the National Guard, and the volunteers. Thank you to Con Edison and to Verizon. Thank you to the school children who write letters of encouragement and to the millions of unsung heroes who are the spirit of this superior country. Our prayers and thoughts remain with you all.

Please be assured that we stand ready and committed to help you any way we can.
