Victoria was hired in February 2018 as a law clerk to support claims by gathering proof of presence within the NYC exposure zone. As the daughter of a decorated NYPD Detective and 9/11 first responder who participated in the rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero, she understood the challenges responders and survivors face as a result of 9/11 toxin exposure. She continued to work for Pitta & Baione, LLP through graduating law school in May 2019. After preparing for and passing the UBE, Victoria returned to the firm full time as an Associate. She participates in all aspects of the World Trade Center Health Program and September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) claims to obtain the justice clients deserve.
Victoria is experienced in trauma informed counseling. She fulfilled her pro bono requirement through participation in New York Law School’s Cyberharassment Clinic which is dedicated exclusively to helping victims of online harassment obtain justice. Victoria relies on this background, as well as her firsthand experience as the daughter of a 9/11 responder, in counseling clients, particularly those in need of exigent circumstances escalation – typically reserved for only individuals suffering from the most severe health conditions.
Prior to working for Pitta & Baione, LLP Victoria worked at the Brennan Center for Justice on projects related to mass incarceration and prison reform. During her time at the Brennan Center, she was acknowledged in several reports during her time with the organization including “15 Executive Actions” (April 2014) which was a policy proposal directed at the Obama Administration’s use of executive action. Victoria traveled with the organization to Washington, D.C. to discuss the report with policy leaders. After her time with the Brennan Center, she spent a summer working for Sesame Workshop as part of their Research and Development team. As an undergraduate at St. John’s University, Victoria spent time in Paris, France where she studied threats on global security under the guidance of international experts on terrorism.
