Long Island Social Security Disability Lawyer | About Our Law Firm

Troy G. Rosasco

Troy G. Rosasco is the Senior Partner in charge of the Social Security Disability Department at Turley, Redmond, and Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP.  He has won over 8000 claims for disabled claimants before the Social Security Administration since 1990. He supervises three other full time Social Security attorneys and five dedicated Social security paralegals.

Troy is considered by many other attorneys to be one of the top Social Security Disability Attorneys in the New York metropolitan area.  In 1999, Troy successfully argued the leading seizure disorder case of Brown vs. Commissioner of Social Security before the federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals (one step below the United States Supreme Court).

Because Troy is prepared to go all the way on deserving Social Security Disability claims, you can be sure that the Social Security Administration will take his clients seriously when he or a member of his firm walks into court with you.

Troy continues to take and win some of the most difficult and challenging medical and legal Social Security disability claims, while at the same time never under-estimating more common claims.

There are several reasons Troy wins over 90% of his Social Security disability claims:

  • First, and most importantly, Troy and his staff of attorneys try to interview all potential clients rather than delegate this key step to under-trained “Claim Assistants” or “Disability Advocates.” During the initial interview and fact gathering process, Troy is already developing his legal theory to have your case meet the definition of “disability” under Social Security Administration standards.  The best lawyers will tell you that most cases are won by thorough preparation by the attorney. In this area, Troy and his staff  are relentless.
  • Second, Troy has developed a deep understanding of medicine, the functional restrictions caused by various disabilities and Social Security Law.  When Troy walks into a hearing before a Social Security Administrative Law Judge, it is his goal to know more about the actual medicine behind the claimant’s functional restrictions than the Judge, and to educate the Judge if necessary.  Because some clients research their own disabilities through the Internet, Troy will often work with them cooperatively to prepare the medical aspects of the case while explaining how the “law of disability” applies to their condition.
  • Third, having been a New York Social Security Disability lawyer for almost 20 years in the challenging metropolitan area, Troy has experience appearing before most of the judges who will decide your case.  Every judge handles particular disability claims a little differently. For instance, some are sympathetic towards mental disabilities, while others are less so. For this reason, Troy tailors his legal briefs and court presentations to the individual judge deciding the claim.  A combination of knowing the law, the medicine and the judge are the key ingredients to winning your disability claim.

Troy is the Publisher of the widely followed New York Disability Law Blog. He has authored over 25 articles on disability law for various legal periodicals, including the American Bar Association General Practice Section Newsletter, the Queens Lawyer, the Nassau Lawyer and the Suffolk Lawyer. He has guest lectured at both Brooklyn Law School and St. John’s Law School on disability law. He has been a guest on the television program The Common Law and the radio programs Your Legal Rights and Learning About the Law. He has been quoted on disability issues in the New York Times, New York Law Journal, Newsday, and the New York Daily News and various on-line periodicals.

A US Air Force veteran, Troy graduated from Cornell University’s School of Industrial & Labor Relations and received his law degree at St. John’s University School of Law where he sits on the Board of Advisors to the Labor & Employment Law Center.

He is currently the Second Circuit Representative and Member of the Board of Directors of the National Organization of Social Security Claimant Representatives (NOSSCR) where he is a frequent lecturer to other Social Security Disability claim lawyers.  He is the recipient of  the Clara Lemlich Public Service Award from the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Memorial Foundation which awards college scholarships to the children of injured workers. He is a member of the New York Social Security Bar Association where he has presented the prestigious Hon. Lester Rosen Award to a much admired New York Social Security Administrative Law Judge.

He is a member in good standing of both the New York and New Jersey Bars, and is also admitted to practice before the federal courts of the Eastern District of NY and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

He lives on Long Island with his wife and two children.  He is active in his church and the Boy Scouts of America.
