Why You Should Use a Local NYC 9/11 Attorney for Your VCF Claim

Filing a claim with the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) can be a complex and daunting process that requires a detailed understanding of the required procedures, the expert preparation of affidavits or other proofs, detailed documentation, and meeting all deadlines. In response to the complex demands of the federal VCF, about 80% of all VCF claimants chose to retain a lawyer dedicated and focused on handling 9/11 VCF claims. By having the help of such an attorney, a 9/11 claimant can be assured that nothing slips through the cracks – so they will get the maximum award in the shortest period of time.

We're Located in Downtown Manhattan – 250 Broadway

With an office in Downtown Manhattan on Broadway just blocks from the 9/11 Memorial and Freedom Tower, the attorneys at Hansen & Rosasco have a deep and longstanding connection with the community affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Unlike lawyers who aren't even based in New York State, our firm’s team of lawyers are all local native New Yorkers. Our lawyers – and our friends and family – were all impacted by the attacks, giving us first-hand insight into the challenges faced by the responders and downtown workers, residents, and students. Being a part of the Downtown community allows us to understand the unique needs and struggles of those directly impacted by the events of September 11, 2001.

We understand the lingering effects of the terrorist attacks not only from the legal process but, more importantly, from the impact on our own families and friends. Our personal connection enriches our perspective and motivates us to advocate fiercely for the rights and maximum compensation for our clients.

Being in close proximity to the clients we serve every day also ensures that we are available for in-person consultations, providing a personal touch that cannot be replicated by out-of-state (or remote) attorneys. It's about providing legal services as well as standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the people who, like us, are Downtown.

We've Been Doing This Since 2001

With decades of experience, our law firm has been serving 9/11 victims since the very beginning. Each of our attorneys has at least 30 years of experience and is dedicated to the entire 9/11 community.

From our decades of experience, we understand the nuances of supporting documentation, economic loss evaluations, medical records collection, and the unique challenges that 9/11 victims face. Getting the highest award possible for your individual case requires in-depth strategies coordinating various aspects of your case and benefits such as Social Security disability benefits, worker's compensation benefits, disability retirement benefits, and more. This knowledge and experience sets us apart from other firms so that you know your claims process is handled with utmost care and expertise.
