Licensed to practice in PA and ME

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio page. It is my honor to share with you some of the highlights of my career and to give you a snapshot of who I am not just as a lawyer with Romanow Law Group, but as a person, a husband, and a father. I truly believe that all my past experiences in life have culminated and positioned me to be doing exactly what I was meant to do—advocate for the seriously injured.

For as long as I can remember, science and medicine fascinated me. My love for science pushed me into earning a doctor of pharmacy degree. I then practiced as a clinical pharmacist for many years. I rounded in hospitals and worked in clinics and pharmacies all over the country. This allowed me to gain extensive medical and clinical experience pertaining to bodily injuries and disease states. My understanding of the human body and physiology now enables me to truly understand how my clients are suffering. It is this understanding that gives me insight into the true and just levels of compensation needed to make my clients whole again. This level of insight earns me and my clients the respect of insurance adjusters, opposing counsel, and jurors.

Dedicated to getting results

As my client, you can be assured that when I negotiate your claim with insurance companies and opposing counsel, based upon both the applicable law and underlying medical issues, it gives your claim instant credibility with the people writing the checks.

I have successfully represented car accident and medical malpractice victims. I also have a select number of commercial clients in business litigation and complex transactions. Most recently, I have become committed to fighting the opioid crisis in our community by representing families who have been victimized by those wrongdoers who have fueled the opioid epidemic in our schools and neighborhoods—unscrupulous doctors who overprescribe opioid pain killers, pharmacists who negligently fill these prescriptions, and drug manufacturers and distributors who have betrayed their duties.

I am glad to be part of Romanow Law Group because I believe in the firm’s dedication to excellence and resourcefulness in representing injury victims. I am also fortunate to be surrounded by a team of talented individuals and lawyers who all share the same mindset of putting the interests of the client first.

I live in the North Hills with my beloved wife, Rawan, and our little daughter, Sara. Sara is the greatest joy in my life and has made me a better person. Rawan and I are proud to raise her in our hometown of Pittsburgh. I strive to be an excellent father and husband, giving my family all my love, kindness, and compassion, and striving to act as a role model every minute of the day. I believe one’s dedication to his family reflects on his dedication to his clients and profession. The values my wife and I hope to instill in our child are many, but paramount amongst them are honesty, integrity, charity, faith, and respect for others. Looking ahead, we hope to have more children and raise a big family in the City of Champions.

Message from David:

At my firm, we hire top talent because those are the only lawyers we want working for our clients. Attorney Ismail Yousef, or “Ish” as his friends, family and clients refer to him, joined Romanow Law Group as a partner because of the many advantages that his skillset brings to our clients. Unlike most lawyers, Ish is also a doctor. He holds a doctor of pharmacy degree and graduated from Duquesne Law School with the distinction of summa cum laude, which is the highest honor awarded to law graduates.

Ish is the type of lawyer who is laser-focused on putting in the work to obtain excellent results for his clients, but he also never forgets that our clients are going through what may be the worst time of their lives. Ish always remembers the human component of practicing law. That is why he greets clients with a big smile and reassures them that he is always available to discuss any aspect of their claims. He is dedicated to making sure that they will be happy with the result.
