Ken

Former Goldman Sachs VP
Kidney Cancer

Ken worked at Goldman Sachs for 21 years. He was on his way to work when the first plane hit the World Trade Center. Like thousands of others, he was reassured by the federal government’s statement that the air was safe, and he returned to work. Years later, Ken collapsed at work and soon after was diagnosed with 9/11-related renal cell carcinoma. Ken turned to Barasch & McGarry for help.

I thought the Victim Compensation Fund and the health program were geared for firefighters and police officers, but I’m one of the victims, too. I proudly helped to reopen Goldman Sachs as a member of the team that restored IT and communications. I’m happy I chose Barasch & McGarry to help me get a fair award for my illness and lost income. I would never have gotten it done without them.

Yvonne

Borough of Manhattan Community College, Professor
Breast Cancer

Yvonne, a professor at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, was teaching a class during the 9/11 attack and returned to work three weeks after. She didn’t realize that she was being exposed to serious toxins while she taught. Sixteen years later, Yvonne was diagnosed with 9/11-related breast cancer. At the time, she didn’t make the connection that her cancer could have been caused by breathing in the toxic dust. Thanks to the encouragement of a friend, she asked Barasch & McGarry to help her file a claim.

I feel incredibly blessed and honored to have had Michael Barasch and Lee London working on my case. These guys are not only superb attorneys, they are the most compassionate, caring individuals who truly care for their clients. They went above and beyond to help me get through the most difficult time in my life. I don’t know what I would have done without them; they truly are life savers. I strongly recommend Barasch & McGarry as the lawyers of choice to the 9/11 community. They will fight for the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

John

Retired NYPD Detective
Prostate Cancer

On September 11, John, a retired NYPD detective, worked in the World Trade Center at the offices of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He witnessed both planes hitting the towers. Over the next year, John continued to work at the site of the attacks and the Staten Island landfill, unaware of the harmful dust in both locations.

John was diagnosed with 9/11-related prostate cancer in 2018. Fortunately, his illness was diagnosed early, and his doctors were able to operate successfully. John was referred to Barasch & McGarry through a fellow responder who is also represented by the firm.

What we saw on that day and the following weeks and months was horrifying. I lost many of my friends and colleagues. What has kept my mind at ease is the award I received from the Victim Compensation Fund, which will give my daughter financial stability. Working with Barasch & McGarry was easy, quick, and efficient. I can’t thank them enough.
