Mike Barasch, managing partner of Barasch & McGarry, attorneys for the Zadroga Family, as well as thousands of other 9/11 sick first responders, local residents and workers, commented that “I’m delighted to see that the Dept. of Justice has finally begun to pay Group B awards, but I agree with Mr. Zahn that the process has been way too slow.
