    Attorney Profile

    A co-founder of Pitta & Baione LLP, Christopher J. Baione focuses his practice exclusively on the representation of people who were harmed as the result of the attack on the World Trade Center twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Based in the firm's office in Manhattan, he provides advocacy to clients throughout the region and across the United States. Mr. Baione has been admitted to practice in New York since 2014, and he is also admitted to practice in New Jersey.

    Mr. Baione has devoted his entire career to helping 9/11 victims obtain their rightful compensation from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund that was reauthorized by Congress in December 2010. The process can be complex, starting with a determination of eligibility, and Mr. Baione works hard to establish that. Thereafter, he provides documentation regarding the losses that have already been sustained and will be sustained in the future. He has argued successfully at subsequent appeals hearings if a claim has been denied or if the amount of compensation is insufficient. Mr. Baione has been able to recover tens of millions of dollars for his clients, including $1 million for the family of a Teamsters Local 282 member and $2 million for a New York Police Department first responder who later developed brain cancer as a result of exposure to the toxic dust after the buildings collapsed.

    Mr. Baione majored in finance at the Peter J. Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University, and in 2009, he received a Bachelor of Science magna cum laude. He then went on to attend Seton Hall University School of Law, and he served internships with the Kings County District Attorney's Office and for a judge on the Kings County Supreme Court before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2013.
