Practice areas

I serve as counsel to victims of 9/11 toxins exposure to obtain compensation from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and free healthcare from the World Trade Center Health Program. Both were established by the James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act of 2011, and personal injury victims. Eligible Zadroga claimants include those who were in Lower Manhattan between 9/11/01 and 7/31/02, or worked along debris removal routes such as piers and barges, or at the Fresh Kills Landfill, or at garages where maintenance vehicles were cleaned.

Great Representation
Matt handled my VCF claim. He made it simple and clear. The time table he gave me was kept even through the whole Covid crisis. Communication was clear and professional. I was very pleased with Matt’s representation and have recommended other family members to him for their claims.

Difficult Layered Complex Client
I decided to move forward with Matthew and his firm solely based off my intake experience With Stephanie. I was then engaged by another Stephanie my claims Manager she made the navigation of complex details effortless. Matthew engaging me directly in the early stages of my legal challenge set the tone that his staff and his own work ethic is parrellel to my own personal professional asthetic “I need it done yesterday” I’m very impatient and very detailed oriented Matthew and his staff was not overwhelmed by my questions or request and have gone above and beyond. My review stands out from the other. I’m new client! I haven’t resolved my legal need. I still need to satisfy pending request, and payment for rendered services. Please consider Mathew and his firm and get things done right at Hello.

I seldom write reviews for any service or product, but I felt compelled to do so in this instance. I hired Mr. Baione to represent me for my personal injury case. I knew immediately that he would be my attorney after our consultation. Compassion, honesty and integrity aren't words that I would commonly associate with an attorney, however Matthew is an exception. I highly recommend Mr. Baione and I would utilize his expertise again if need be. An easy five stars.

I would like to start by thanking Matt and the firm. When we initially met everything was explained very well. Matt explained what was needed from me, what to expect of him and the firm as well as explaining the timeline for things to come. Whenever I reached out to Matt he got back to me almost immediately. This was very reassuring. I knew that I had gone with the right firm. I have and continue to recommend Matt and the entire firm to anyone who was affected during that terrible time.

Matt Baione is a true professional who cares.
Matt was recommended by the Detectives Endowment Association and it’s a recommendation that I’m glad I took and one I would pass on to my brother and sister Detectives. I can’t thank Matt enough for all that he’s done helping me get through this very difficult process. I dreaded making the initial call, even though I got sick through no fault of my own. I just dreaded the thought of the whole process but once I spoke to Matt he put me at ease and walked me through it. Matt always got back to me. No matter how many calls or emails, Matt tried his best to resolve the questions I had. I can’t thank Matt enough for the hard work that he did for our family with our claim and would recommend him to anyone else who finds themselves with a WTC illness. Thank you Matt.

Different type of lawyer he tells the truth
Matthew, Has been from the very start up front and easy to understand. He has tackled all of the areas of my case and helped me to identify what was needed to be documented. When we conversed it was like talking to a long time friend. Good Guy

Review
My dealings with Matt Baione from day one were professional and courteous but more important I felt that he cared about me and my family right from the start. As this process has moved forward he always kept me informed and up to date with every step. I have recommended him to friends and I would recommend him to my family.

Compassionate and detail oriented
I was discouraged from pursuing an application to the VCF by the first law firm I contacted. Luckily, a friend then referred me to Pitta & Baione. Matthew contacted me within an hour of my initial inquiry. He and his team conveyed an attitude and work ethic that was reassuring, detail oriented, sensitive, and very professional. He is highly knowledgeable and was able to move my application along in a very timely manner. I never worried about the outcome. I highly recommend his services without reservation.

Great experience
Matt was always available and when he was out of the office I received a return call expeditiously. My experience with lawyers in the past has been interesting to say the least. Dealing with Matt and his firm has been rewarding compared to others especially with clear concise answers, accuracy on expectations and feeling that he was representing my best interests. An experience that although was beneficial would have been pleasant in any case, my personal thanks for the professionalism as well as the candor and of course the results. Dan Sweet

The best!!!!
In all honesty I was always intimidated by attorneys I felt they always spoke down to people because of how educated they are. What some lack is people skills something that education does not provide. It wasn’t until I met Mr Mathew Baione that my outlook all changed. Mathew and his entire firm with his partner Chris have exceeded the utmost in sincerity, respect, kindness, intelligence,dignity and professionalism. Dealing with cancer and other major illnesses is an uphill battle. Mathew and firm has made the battle for my family a lot less painful. And for that and more we thank them.

5 Star Law Firm
My husband and I have the pleasure of working with Matthew. We could not be happier from the first consult Matthew's expertise on the WTC health program to the WTC Victims Fund is astounding. He helped my husband through every step of the process and the outcome was outstanding. He is quick to respond to questions and patience when we had many questions! He is smart, kind, and understanding. I highly recommend Matthew and his law firm. Thank you Matt!

Great Law Firm
After being diagnosed with cancer, I went through surgery and radiation treatment within a 3 month time frame. That left me feeling very overwhelmed. It was emotionally and physically impossible for me to submit a claim with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Fortunately a good friend recommended Pitta & Baione. Not only was Matthew Baione able to expedite my claim, he also gave sound advice and explained the process clearly. He always returned calls and emails whenever I had questions about my case. His staff is very courteous and professional. I appreciated that I was able to submit signatures and documents online (that was a major plus for me). I highly recommend this attorney.

Top-notch, professional, personalized service - highly recommend!
Matthew was my attorney for a complex and sensitive 9/11 VCF case. From the moment I had my initial consultation with him to the completion of the case, he instilled confidence and was extremely patient, kind, respectful, and responsive. We had ongoing communication throughout, and he handled my case personally; unlike other firms, he, as a partner of the firm, handled the case directly. He was careful and thoughtful with his strategy on how to handle the case, and the end result was the best settlement award I could have hoped for. Matthew is wise beyond his years. Highly recommend him and his firm.

Matthew was a great help to me!
I was referred to Matthew by a good friend who was using him for her claim. When I met Matthew, he was extremely professional. He took the time to get to know me as well, making me feel more like a friend then a client. He expedited my claim at a time when I needed it most. I would definitely recommend him to any & everybody!

True Love from an Amazing Attorney
Words cannot describe what the actions, hard work, dedication and true meaningful commitment of Matthew Baione mean to me. He demonstrated true love to me through his services. There are attorneys who see their jobs as a means to an end: earn a good living helping people through a respectable practice. Then there are those attorneys who truly give their entire soul and existence into, not just a job, but a life long career in exercising benevolence through practicing law. This man personifies these things that I write in this review. His expertise, knowledge and experience are obviously held to a high standard with his practice and it starts with him. Take those ingredients and mix them with love and you have a grateful person like me hoping that everyone else who needs a lawyer like him is as lucky as I am to have received what he gave to me. Thank you so much Matthew!
