Nationally Renowned Opioid Lawyers

The opioid epidemic is affecting communities and local governments across the country at an unprecedented level. The opioid crisis is causing an emotional and financial strain on communities nationwide which requires a comprehensive approach.

Local officials are responding swiftly and admirably by increasing health service programs, first responder personnel, law enforcement training sessions, and supporting treatment centers. However, the opioid issue has far reaching effects on municipalities, affecting child care services, hospital staffing, environmental issues and tourism. Opioid-related costs will quickly affect a community’s annual budget and lead to unexpected losses.

The opioid crisis is a public health problem and municipalities may require additional assistance to respond judiciously. Napoli Shkolnik’s Office of Governmental Opioid Affairs consists of an army of legal professionals dedicated to your best interests. Our experienced attorneys will advise you as to all available legal options in order to quickly and efficiently recoup expenses from combatting this epidemic by holding the manufacturers and distributors accountable.

Our knowledgeable legal team will offer a dynamic perspective and approach to achieve a successful result for your community. We will advise you on how to move forward to seek justice through financial compensation and injunctive relief.

Napoli Shkolnik will take on 100% of the expenses upfront; there will be no burden on taxpayers. Our firm has the resources and skills necessary to deal with the complex legal issues and tactics often employed by  the pharmaceutical industry.
