Where Barasch & McGarry Has Donated During Coronavirus
Written by Mollie Barasch
Barasch & McGarry salutes the bravery of the health care workers, FDNY, NYPD, sanitation workers, correction officers, Port Authority officers, and other front line workers who are going to work every day and selflessly risking their own safety.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and always, we are deeply grateful for their bravery and exemplary service to the community. We will never forget the sacrifices they make working tirelessly to tend to the health of our loved ones, leaders, and neighbors.
Since the 9/11 community is immunocompromised, many of our clients contracted the virus and unfortunately, some passed away. The dedication of the hospital teams is ever-present on our mind.
To contribute to the relief efforts and show our gratitude, Barasch & McGarry has proudly donated more than 50,000 masks to FDNY, NYPD, sanitation workers, correction officers, Port Authority officers, nursing homes, and other front line workers. Deliveries have been made to 40 NYPD precincts, and 90 FDNY Battalion divisions. Please see below for a list of where we’ve donated.
In addition to donating masks, the firm has established the Barasch & McGarry Health Care Worker Lunch Donation Program which delivers meals every day to New York and New Jersey area hospitals. Please see below for a list of where we’ve donated. (Below the video.)
To those dedicated health workers and first responders, we stand with you and will continue to support you in any way that Barasch & McGarry can. Delivery of lunches and mask donations will continue until the pandemic subsides.

"Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson handled everything professionally and with patience. They always had time to answer all my questions and did what they promised. Thanks esp to Brian Calamaris Lee London, and Mariya Atanasova. Thank you."
- William Collins, FDNY
"If I could give them six stars I would...don't even bother talking to anyone else concerning 9/11. The whole team worked night and day to deliver an outstanding settlement. They are honest, hard working and extremely professional. Just make the one phone call and let them do the rest."
- Les Margulis, resident in the exposure zone
"I had a very good experience with Michael and Mariya. They made the process stress free. I would recommend this firm to anyone seeking assistance with 9/11 related illnesses."
- JE Kirwan, worked in the exposure zone
"The people at this firm were just great. They were concern with making sure I was taken care of in every way possible. When I was given an award Mr. Barasch didn't think it was a fair amount and appealed the decision which got me a larger award. I am very satisfied with everything they did for me in the past and are willing to do for me and my family in the future."
- Bob Wiecezak, FDNY-Retired
"Excellent law firm. Lee London and his staff were very responsive and always followed up with phone calls or emails. This firm is a strong example of what caring and personable lawyers are all about."
- Letitia Egan, wife of client, volunteer in the exposure zone
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.
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.
Let a knowledgeable attorney help you figure it out
A cancer diagnosis can be terrifying. You undoubtedly have questions about your disease and how you will pay for treatment.
