Samuel Blackmar


Sam brings many years of behavioral healthcare experience to Napoli Shkolnik’s Parity Litigation Team.

Before entering law school, Sam spent five years at a revenue cycle management company where he was in charge of resolving disputes with the nation’s largest health insurance companies. During Sam’s time in medical billing, he supervised a team that collected millions of dollars in claims that insurers initially denied.

During law school, Sam worked as a law clerk in Napoli Shkolnik’s Washington, DC office where he helped build the firm’s Parity litigation practice. Sam strongly believes that patients have a right to the insurance benefits they pay for, and his practice is devoted to fighting for patients and providers whose claims are wrongly unpaid.

Sam also represents over one hundred healthcare providers and patient-creditors in the Purdue Pharmaceutical Bankruptcy, bringing his experience as an extern to the Honorable Margaret M. Mann in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California to the Opioid Litigation team.

Additionally, Sam advises healthcare providers and medical billing companies on compliance and in disputes with Public and Commercial insurers. Sam has successfully guided clients through audits and investigations, and has resolved millions of dollars in unpaid AR for healthcare providers.
