Romano Law's AMAZING Team is simply the BEST! Everything about what they do is simply Brilliant and Exceptional. My experience with Sam and Aaron was outstanding and they were a pleasure to work with. The level of integrity and honesty they approached my case with complimented greatly the professionalism they showed and supported the personal bond they build with their clients to afford them not only superior service, but also a compassionate and supportive team. Event if the case was not grand in scale, Mr. Romano and his team gave the same level of quality care and attention, regardless of the scale of the case at hand.From the first meeting I had with Romano Law, I could tell the level of care and quality they brought to the table could stand as an example for any law firm across the country. My impression was fully built upon the breadth of knowledge and service they provided me, and the outstanding work ethic and level of compassion they showed me throughout. Through their tireless efforts and diligence, they were able to help me reach a settlement that was beyond my expectations and provide me with the confidence that in the future, should I need top notch representation, I now know who to call.I cannot express enough how amazing my experience was with Romano Law, and I cannot recommend enough their services to anyone, big or small, who needs the best representation and the highest level of regard towards your legal needs. They truly care more about being that helping hand in your time of need, than trying to take advantage of someone in a dire situation. The Romano Law team is the type that will make you wish you could find a way to repay them for their kindness beyond the casework, and will give you a sense, nay a desire to pay forward the good will they provide to you.read more

I've been a client of Romano Law for the past five years. Not only have Domenic and his team helped me value what I do in a more holistic way, they've crafted deals that protect me against unexpected surprises. If you're a creative person -- writer, producer, graphic artist, whatever -- I would recommend reaching out to them. It's money well spent.read more

I first contacted Romano Law through the NYC Bar Legal Referral Service to help set up a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Even though the first consult was through a free service, I always felt like I had their full attention and best effort throughout the process. Not only that, Domenic and Sam are genuine people who have taken an interest in me and my career far beyond the call of duty. More than anything, it feels like they are interested in cultivating a great network from great clients. In any industry, that kind of support is invaluable.read more

I recently retained Romano Law for a business purchase. They made this closing which was often intense a much easier one. In addition there were moments I was not even certain we would close as the seller and their attorney would often "disappear". Patient and true professionals. Highly recommended!!!!!read more

While living in another state, I was in need of an attorney in New York to handle a breach of contract negotiation with a large entertainment company. I was fortunate enough to find Romano Law and was very pleased with the services provided. They were always quick to return my calls, answer emails, and negotiated a settlement in my favor. I highly recommend Romano Law; no task is too large for this firm. Thanks Domenic and Shamila!read more

I recently engaged Romano Law for a dispute. I was very concerned about choosing a firm that had a strong history of representing their clients in a strong and ethical way. I was very cautious in selecting Romano as I did not know what to expect out of a New York Law Firm. My experience was incredible. From the first day speaking with Domenic and then further with their entire staff, I was impressed with their professionalism, their focus and listening to my needs and wants and not pushing an independent agenda. Nicole Haff was a amazing!!!! She and the team fought hard for me and I was completely satisfied. If you are looking for representation and not sure who to pick, please call Romano today!read more

I have had the great privilege to become a client of Romano Law and getting to know Domenic Romano and two of his staff attorneys, Paolo and Aaron. This law firm should be the standard of every law firm with respect to their subject matter knowledge, integrity and customer service. In the field of sports law which I hired them for, they are second to none and I have no doubt they lead the industry in the specialized field of entertainment law as well. I have absolutely no reservation to recommend Romano Law firm and Domenic Romano. They are simply the best.read more

I retained Romano Law to help negotiate terms of a film industry contract. They were very attentive to my desire for fair terms without sacrificing my interests. They also acted professionally and in a timely manner.More recently, they made themselves available to research a potential breach of contract, where they acted professionally and timely yet again.This firm is several cuts above other so-called "great" lawyers I have retained before, and not only do I highly recommend them, but I look forward to retaining them again in the future.read more

Romano Law supported a multi-phase negotiation resulting which I hadn't experienced before. I am happy with the process of working with them and the outcome of the deal. This agreement promises to be the foundation for years of work to come.read more

I was incredibly impressed with the level of expertise, professionalism, and integrity I encountered with Domenic and the team at Romano Law. I faced a challenging matter, with much complexity, and tough opposition, but they took it in stride, handled the issues diligently, and achieved the best possible outcome against the odds. All the while, they were friendly, polite, prompt, and attentive to my concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend these legal miracle workers. They’re clearly one of the best boutique firms out there.read more

I cannot say enough good things about Romano Law. I highly recommend their services. Everything about my experience (the initial consultation, scheduling the appointment, the office space, the meeting, and the follow up) was above and beyond what I expected. (A more thorough review is below):--- I spent an embarrassing amount of time researching every single entertainment law firm in the NY area (creeped social media, read reviews, looked up other clients etc) and I'm beyond thrilled that I chose Romano. Minutes after filling out a brief online form I was able to speak to someone on their team on the phone for an initial consultation, which was extremely helpful. I am new to all this and wasn't sure what type of services I required. Dylan walked me through the various options and based on my limited budget and the scope of my project we decided it made sense for me to book an hour-long meeting with one of their lawyers. Booking the appointment was a smooth process. They have openings in the evening, which is helpful for 9-5ers and they were also very accommodating when I had to change my appointment date. The office space itself is modern, clean, spacious, and well-appointed. We met in a conference room that had views of the river. It's also convenient to get to via the subway. I met with Domenic (aka Romano himself!), Leah, and Dylan--so really I got three great lawyers for the price of one! I was so impressed with the amount of research they did on me and my project PRIOR to our meeting. That meant I didn't have to spend time catching them up and instead they were able to jump right in with suggestions. Their expertise and experience in this field were very apparent and their ideas and recommendations were invaluable. Not only were they tremendously knowledgeable, but they were also very pleasant to chat with. They were easygoing, patient, and friendly. I actually had a lot of fun meeting with them!After the meeting, they spent additional time reaching out to their contacts and doing more research for my case and followed up with that new information via email. Also, they touched base with me to see how an event related to my project went, which was very thoughtful. Overall, I would highly recommend using Romano Law whether you're a large company with a huge budget or someone like me who's working independently, is self-funded, and had no idea where to begin!read more

With very little knowledge of the industry I was meeting with Romano Law for advice and guidance on how to move a project forward. From scheduling the consultation to the follow up e-mail I received after the consultation, I felt as if I was their primary concern.

My motivation is not only in making my project a success, but to developing a long lasting relationship with this great group of people!read more

In my first consultation with Domenic I was honestly very impressed by, not only his rational and extremely sharp demeanor, but his frankness - realism is something I personally value greatly. It was very clear that I was dealing with a consummate professional and someone who would not sugar-coat the truth. This team not only explored every possible route to victory when analyzing my case, but were clear and concise in explaining the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. They were extremely patient with me and took great care to listen to what I had to say and even incorporate that into our strategy - and their hard work and diligence paid off. I highly recommend Romano Law!read more

If you are searching for the absolute best IP law team in NYC, look no further. Domenic, Sam, and the rest of the team bring the perfect blend of toughness and legal brilliance to their approach. I was having an ugly dispute with my employer who was inexplicably withholding payment but still profiting off my work. Domenic and Sam worked tirelessly on my behalf, and my employer settled immediately and I had my $ within days. Romano Law is without a doubt the team you want in your corner.read more

We found Romano Law online while looking for help with an existing web domain purchase; the article they wrote on the topic was such a great resource that we decided to to engage them for the project. Since then, Romano Law has also helped us with our trademark application process, and negotiated a design contract for us, and they've absolutely stellar on all counts.As a start-up nonprofit business we have had to consult with many law firms, but Romano Law is truly a cut above the rest. The Romano Law team is responsive, knowledgable, and consummately professional. On top of providing consistently reliable legal advice, Domenic seems genuinely excited about our project, and he's connected us with other contacts in his network to help forward our mission. Anjana Puri worked on our complicated trademark application, and is excellent. And everyone in the Romano Law office is friendly, courteous, and helpful without fail.All around excellent--highest possible recommendation!read more

I'm writing here to communicate my phenomenal experience of having worked closely with Romano Law PLLC, which resulted in the creation of a completely customized Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for my technology startup.Another reviewer already hit the nail on the head: "Romano Law practices law at the highest standard of the profession." This statement captures the essence of what it's like to work with the attorneys here. Every email and phone call was professional and friendly, ending with all questions answered, all issues resolved, all doubt erased, and all expectations exceeded.Like all tech startups exploring new terrain, a host of potential legal complications follow. These situations — unique to every company — can only be dealt with effectively by attorneys who have mastered their craft and can adapt to a rapidly changing landscape. Paolo was able to do just that and create Terms of Use and Privacy Policy documents that intelligently and surgically protect my company and its assets, while providing enough leeway to encourage quick growth. All I had to do was relay my vision for the organization, and Paolo and his feedback loops did the rest.Paolo was completely transparent and honest throughout the process, including when he was uncomfortable answering more delicate questions. These were relayed to senior attorneys and promptly resolved. Paolo was especially good at determining what's extremely important to the company's best interests, and reiterating those points to me — even after I'd been stubborn. After further thought, he was most certainly right about the most contentious suggestion.The most important takeaway for me was how little I really knew about the science that goes into crafting legal documents. This huge learning experience would have been painful, had it not been for Paolo's transference of knowledge and patiently bearing with all my crazy questions. Upon reviewing the documents, it dawned on me that if I had worked with another law firm, it's possible I wouldn't have known that documents of the highest quality had just been delivered. With Romano Law, you know you're working with the best because the work speaks for itself.Last but not least, when working with Romano Law you can tell they're about more than just business. They're good people looking to work with good people and form lasting relationships. The world could use more of this kind of company.Should my startup succeed, I hope to be working with Romano Law for a very long time. I can't recommend them enough.read more

Establishing a startup with a complicated business model is almost impossible to do in NYC. Romano Law PLLC made this possible and so much easier for us.

Domenic Romano has represented my company for about 1 year now. As someone who frequently needs an attorney for various business matters, I've worked with many firms over the years and working with Domenic is truly a pleasure and a breath of fresh air.Domenic puts my business and my interests first, if there's a big deal on the table that would result in many hours of work for Domenic and his firm, If he does not agree with it, I know I can trust him to guide me in the right direction regardless if that means less work for him.As someone with much experience working with many different firms, above all else that is the most important thing you can look for and sadly it's hard to find these days. Most attorneys just want to bill as many hours as possible.There's also something different about Domenic, besides being a well-rounded attorney who is extremely knowledgeable in the law, Domenic is also extremely knowledgeable on how business is conducted. His advice has not only helped us close deals but has helped improve those deals. Domenic gets my highest recommendation.read more

Have been a client for two years and worked through Shalizeh, Domenic, Marie, and Simon. Romano Law has handled our contracts in the areas of IP licensing, finance, and company formation... from negotiation to drafting. Our company, NEIFI Analytics, provides licensing and consulting services to pro sports teams for player valuation and evaluation. Domenic in particular helped us to navigate a niche space and establish ourselves in an unclear market. NEIFI couldn't be where we are without Romano Law.read more

Highly recommend Romano Law and their staff. I started working with them on a contract and was amazed by the way Romano Law looked at my case from not just my contract but my overall business prospective. They ask questions and provide insight I've never gotten from any other firm. I use Romano Law for all my legal representation now and have never been in better hands!read more

I have nothing but the highest praise for the team at Romano Law, particularly Shaliz and Domenic but extending to their staff as well. They represent me on personal matters as well as film and TV projects where their knowledge extends the whole spectrum from development to packaging to financing to production and thru sales/distribution. I think they're razor sharp, great negotiators, economical, and offer fantastic customer support to walk you thru the processes. Ultimately I just find them to be fantastic people and I guarantee you will benefit from having them on your team!read more

Romano Law has been an incredible partner for my business. I never once felt like a transactional customer, rather a valued client and human being, and that’s made all the difference. What started as a simple exercise in incorporating my new company has resulted in an ongoing dialogue that has broadened my thinking about how to grow my business, connected me with likeminded individuals through Romano Law’s ongoing events, and introduced accounting and patent expertise that I was looking for. Domenic, Shaliz and the whole Romano Law team are not only consummate professionals in their field, they’re extraordinary people who go above and beyond every single day. I could not recommend them more.read more

Romano Law is an amazing law firm. They represented me on a case that other lawyers were afraid to take. But Romano law fought for me and won. I was depressed and stressed out before they represented me. But now I've gotten justice and and my smile back. I recommend them 200%. They genuinly care about their clients. What I really liked, was the fact that they keepth me in the loop as they proceeded with my case. They treated me like family. Much love and respect to the Romano Law Firm......read more

Domenic and his team are amazing. I brought them a half-finished business deal that had been held up by the other party's law firm for a couple months and they took initiative and brought it to closing within a few weeks. They effectively worked to protect my best interests while also keeping the other party happy. They were professional and responsive the entire time, and took care to make sure I understood everything that was going on. I will definitely be going back to them in the future.read more

I wanted to quickly post about how Romano Law enabled me to sell my business. The combination of having a business broker to get potential buyers to the table, and then having a competent, reasonable, but strong firm representing my interests - allowed me to do what I thought impossible.They weren’t the first firm I chose, but they certainly were the last. When you have intelligent people working on your behalf, it gives you the peace of mind that you are not climbing an uphill battle. Like most people, I have never sold a business before. Every step of the way my head was spinning, trying to learn as Ia go, wondering if I had made some critical mistake that would end up shooting myself in the foot.All that changed once I retained the services of Romano Law. I could sleep easy knowing that whatever the outcome was, I did not leave anything on the table. The sale eventually went through, and I could not be happier with the results. This has been nothing short of life changing.Don’t leave things up to chance – choose Romano Law.read more

Domenic and Shaliz negotiated a severance package with an employer that far exceeded my expectations. They helped me get a deal that was equitable and swift, always taking time to talk through their next steps patiently, and asking if I was comfortable with the terms. What I love about their style is that they are utterly knowledgeable, handle themselves with class and yet have sharp teeth when they need to strategically get something accomplished.In every negotiation, I always felt like my best interests were a priority for them! These stellar attorneys are accessible, take time to check in frequently and get the job done. Five star firm for sure!read more

If only the company that I was subsequently under contract with, was as professional as the Romano team! From the beginning to the, very soon after, end of my association with this particular employer, everyone at Romano treated me as family and worked diligently to make sure that not only was I protected, but that I well advised when things went south. I was recommend the firm by a trusted client of mine and as I mentioned, I am happy to give them amy most solid endorsement. Thanks guys.read more

Romano law has been my legal representation for several years now and I consider them part of my team. Dominic is very knowledgeable and has helped me navigate the very complicated contract world. Shaliz Sadig in particular is a huge asset. Her legal strategy and work ethic has become invaluable to my business, along with her savvy style of diplomacy in the handling of some of my international clients. Besides the great legal work they do Romano law returns emails and phone calls quickly, sometimes after office hours and weekends. That kind of commitment is NOT easy to find. I couldn't recommend this firm any higher. They are truly one of a kind.read more

THANK YOU for such a wonderful consultation! I am small business owner that was looking to expand my knowledge of state laws, licenses, and other regulations regarding my business. I was absolutely thrilled to work with Rose Massary to figure out exactly what I needed to do in terms of drafting legal forms, how to file with the state, and other start-up tips to conduct business as appropriately and professionally as possible. She was remarkably efficient, taking careful time to understand all of my concerns regarding security protocols, client restrictions, and trademark usage with prospective contracts. Personally, I am a very timid person and I often get anxious about handling these matters. However, Rose has made this transition worry-free and painless. I have renewed confidence in moving forward and making my business a success. In fact, she has gone above and beyond with crucial tips to safeguard my work, how to prepare for unsavory circumstances (should they arise), and compartmentalizing. These points may seem like common sense, but it doesn't hurt to listen and take note, so this was very much appreciated! Moreover, I would like to mention Jessica, who was so very kind and sincere on the phone and in person. You have all made me feel right at home and you took the time to accommodate me as a person, not as an entity. This is such a crucial part of conducting business, and for this, I cannot say thank you enough. I look forward to working with you all in the future. Blessings!read more

First of all, as a disclaimer, I am Domenic Romano's brother. That said, this is my honest review of his professional legal services. I am a voiceover artist based out of Los Angeles, California (BATMAN, CURIOUS GEORGE, NBC). Domenic and his associates at Romano Law have provided me with well over a decade of service. Domenic and his team are incredible at what they do. They provide excellent service, one on one communication, and their work is not only detailed but impeccable. They have negotiated contracts for me with NBC, FOX SPORTS, ABC, and other entertainment companies of all sizes, as well as many business contracts and dealings. I can tell you that having Domenic on your team is what you want. He is the most straight shooting, tell-it-like-it-is, knowledgeable, talented lawyer you will ever meet. Plain and simple - he is very very good at what he does. Trust me, I grew up with this guy - which honestly wasn't always easy, but I'll tell you this: when push comes to shove: THIS is the guy you want standing over your right shoulder, and when need be, standing right in front of you. Strong negotiations, yet done with grace and charm; never off-putting, and always gets the results. A+++ for Domenic Romano and ROMANO LAW.Sincerely,Rino RomanoLos Angeles, CAread more

His counsel is always balanced, informed and comes from years of experience in an ever-changing industry.

Nevertheless, Domenic and Shaliz treated my case with utmost importance. They were very persistent in following up with my former agent's lawyers.

Jake LaMotta the Raging Bull and I contacted the Romano Law Firm when we were having questions concerning trademark infringement. That one phone call answered by Robert and referred to Rose led to a mutual concern on Jake's behalf in general by the whole team. Domenic, Shaliz and Rose tirelessly pored over reams of information on Jake including all original documents etc. This was not an easy task. Through their efforts a good contract is being signed to move forward with Jake's new film "Bronx Bull" as well as his upcoming documentary "Moving Forward: the Untold Story of Jake LaMotta". Without their dedication to uncover the truth and apply it to present situations as they occur we would not be able to effectively navigate the sometimes turbulent course of Jake's life and career!
