9/11 Lawyers Fighting For Our Neighbors

Chris & Matt Baione walking in front of fire truck

Founded by lawyers with roots in Little Italy, Pitta & Baione LLP is dedicated to fighting for New Yorkers who are still suffering the consequences of simply living and working south of Houston Street in the months after 9/11. Our neighbors were lied to and told the air was safe to breathe, and now they’re battling cancer and other serious illnesses because of it. We don’t think that’s right. Our 9/11 lawyers fight every day to ensure that justice is served and ALL of 9/11’s victims are properly compensated for the harm they suffered.

We Fight Here.

We work and live in the same neighborhoods as our clients and understand their struggles like only a neighbor can. Our firm headquarters are located in the heart of Lower Manhattan, and our staff and clients are a representation of the culture melting pot we are proud to call home.  We prioritize our ability to service clients in the language they feel most comfortable communicating in, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Taishanese, Spanish and Italian. We aren’t lawyers for the 9/11 community—we’re 9/11 community lawyers.

our promise

The events of September 11th are permanently etched on our city’s skyline, our nation’s history, and the lives of countless Americans who still live with the health consequences of that tragic day. Our law firm doesn’t have cases, it has clients, and we do whatever it takes to help them. Whether it’s pursuing fair compensation and health resources for a 9/11 injury claim or taking our fight to the U.S. Capitol to ensure our legislators continue supporting 9/11 survivors, we promise to never forget.

When we take on your case, it becomes our own. When we give you our word, we keep it.

A Voice for 9/11 Survivors and Their Families


Our work doesn’t end after we help a 9/11 survivor recover compensation. We do whatever it takes to help improve our clients’ lives for the better, regardless of whether or not it pertains to the specific claim at hand. Whether that means helping to enroll them in the WTC health program or changing laws to ensure the 9/11 community is protected now and well into the future, we’ll do it. We know how to cut through red tape and lobby Congress to get our clients help, and our success reflects that.
