The events of 9/11 had a profound effect on everyone whose lives they touched and continue to impact our world today. Even though 18 years have passed since that day, tens of thousands of individuals still suffer illnesses as a result of being exposed to the toxic dust and smoke that enveloped the city in the aftermath of the attacks. As such, 9/11-related issues continue to pop up, often in unexpected places. When those issues come up in the legal field, attorneys often turn to a 9/11 lawyer at Pitta & Baione for assistance.

The 9/11 lawyers at Pitta & Baione have a reputation for detail-oriented, tireless, and empathetic advocacy on behalf of our clients.
