Securing your rights as a survivor of September 11th is not just our job, it is our passion.
You or your loved ones were there that day. And our WTC law firm, our friends and our family members, were right alongside you.
Based in Staten Island, you may know Pitta and Baione as the neighbors, colleagues, and friends who shared your trauma and your grief following the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11, and who from the beginning have been advocates for justice for everyone involved.
Our WTC Law Firm Has Already Recovered Over $100 Million For People Like You
Our founding and managing partner, Vincent Pitta – a fixture of the labor community for over 40 years – has been advocating for the victims and the families who lost dear loved ones since the immediate aftermath of the attacks. An original member of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation’s Families Advisory Counsel, he and his colleagues at Pitta and Baionehave worked tirelessly to see that no survivor or family member goes without the health care and compensation benefits they need and deserve.
Our WTC law firm has already recovered over $100 million on behalf of people like you who were present in Lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001, and who were in the exposure zone during the harrowing and heartbreaking days, weeks and months following the attacks. We have recovered for the widows, widowers, and the children of those who died on that day or lost their lives through exposure during or following the attacks.

Our WTC Law Firm Will Continue the Fight Until Each Victim Gets What They Deserve
- We fight for victim benefit programs. After September 11th, 2001, we lobbied successfully for the creation of financial and healthcare benefits programs for victims and their families. We have used those programs to help our clients access the financial and medical benefits they sorely need.
- We fight through the red tape. Our 9/11 law firm was one of the first to help clients with applications for the World Trade Center Health Program. Applying to this program saves our clients time and money and increases their chances of receiving compensation from the Victim Compensation Fund.
- We fight for legislation. Our attorneys lobbied for the legislation that would later become the Zadroga Act. In 2019, with the expiration deadline for the Victim Compensation Fund fast approaching and the Fund facing potential cuts of up to 70 percent, we fought successfully to extend the Zadroga Act until 2090 to protect even more victims. We also met personally with the Special Master overseeing the Fund to discuss the impacts of the proposed cuts.
- We know the whole story. The federal benefit programs for 9/11 survivors and first responders use geographical boundaries to help determine eligibility. We help our clients determine eligibility in a wider range of New York City, including the area south of Houston Street (north of Canal Street) and in certain parts of Brooklyn.
The fight, however, is not over.
