HomeTeamNaoki Yaguchi

Naoki Yaguchi is an Associate Attorney at Pitta & Baione LLP representing clients before the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund pursuing their VCF Claims and related Trust and Estate law matters.

Naoki joined Pitta & Baione LLP after working under the mentorship of Roy T. Richter, Esq. at Bifulco & Richter LLP, where he represented both Trust and Estate Law matters as well as families of deceased and disabled 9/11 victims in obtaining tax relief benefits under the “Tax Relief for Victims of Terror Attacks Act”. Roy Richter was the former president of the NYPD Captain’s Endowment Association, of which Naoki was a member.

In his former role at Bifulco & Richter LLP, Naoki worked directly with our team at Pitta & Baione LLP to ensure jointly represented clients obtained fair tax relief payments under the statute. After Roy Richter passed away, Naoki joined Pitta & Baione LLP to continue his Trust and Estate Law practice and to advocate on behalf of 9/11 victims not only on tax relief matters, but also in pursuing compensation from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and free healthcare benefits from the World Trade Center Health Program.

Naoki is also a former Inspector for the NYPD  where he served for nearly two decades. He rose through the ranks due to his sound leadership, demonstrated excellence, and firm commitment to public service. Beginning as a patrol officer, Naoki finished his career with the NYPD as an Inspector for the 24th Precinct, commanding approximately 175 officers, and responsible for all precinct operations in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. His time as a member of the NYPD was dedicated to improving public safety, reducing violence, and managing quality of life concerns for local residents of Manhattan as well as the nearly 40 million regular visitors to Central Park. He has been the commanding officer ensuring safety during planned large-scale events such as the Global Citizens Concert, NYC Marathon, and Summer Stage. His dedication to service is integral to his current role at Pitta & Baione LLP.

Naoki graduated cum laude from New York Law School in 2013, where he earned Dean’s List as well as Dean’s List High Honors recognition for academic excellence. He is admitted to practice law in New York and Connecticut.
