Practice Areas

Pharmaceutical Litigation

Prescription drugs are meant to help patients recover from or cope with encumbering medical conditions. Unfortunately, not all prescription drugs are made or distributed with patients’ best interests in mind; many cause undue harm, injury, and even death. If you are the victim of a pharmaceutical drug that’s caused you harm that you would not have suffered but for the medication, you have the right to pursue a civil action. At Napoli Shkolnik, PLLC our attorneys can help you to determine who is liable for your injuries, and file a claim to recover damages for economic and noneconomic losses. Call us today to schedule your consultation now.

Civil Rights

Most convictions are correct, and it is only a small fraction of criminal convictions that are wrongfully made due to police misconduct. But wrongful convictions are unacceptable and should not be tolerated because they place innocent people behind bars.
Those who have endured a wrongful conviction at the hands of law enforcement may be entitled to compensation for their lost time and any harm that they have suffered.

Workers Compensation

An injury or illness that was incurred while on the job qualifies you to file a workers compensation claim which will require your employer to provide you with financial support and medical benefits during the time it takes you to recover from your work-related injury / illness.
