Mission Accomplished! 50,000 Masks and 2,500 Meals Donated by July 4th

On America’s 244th birthday, we have so much to be grateful for. We are proud to announce that we have reached our goal of 50,000 masks and 2,500 meals donated by July 4th.

Since March, while all of us were working remotely, we were able to help thousands of frontline responders and health care workers through our firm’s “Lunch and Mask Donation Program”. Attorneys and staff at our firm personally delivered meals to 75 medical facilities throughout the tri-state area. We also donated masks to every firefighter and EMT, and to over three dozen police precincts, correctional and sanitation facilities, as well as to many nursing homes.

We invite you to watch this short video covering our donations.

Meanwhile, we are delighted that the Governor and Mayor have given us permission to reopen our office. To be safe during this ongoing health crisis, we will be rotating our attorneys and staff so that half of us are in the office while the other half keep working productively from their homes. This is likely going to be the “new normal” for quite a while.

However you are spending this day, we would like to wish you a meaningful and safe July 4th. We are honored to be able to give back during this time. It is a privilege to represent the 9/11 community, including our troops and first responders who keep this country safe.

Happy Independence Day,
The Barasch & McGarry Family

  • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation

    There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

    For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.

    Register For Compensation

Please help spread the word about the strict two-year deadline to register a claim

Many people have tried to complete the VCF application on their own, only to learn that it requires answers to hundreds of questions and many documents to download. It would be our pleasure to help you complete the process in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Please call us for a free consultation.
