Palm Beach County Selects Napoli Shkolnik for Opioid Lawsuit

March 16, 2018

Palm Beach County has joined a growing legal battle against drug companies to recoup the costs of fighting an opioid epidemic that is killing more than 1,000 people every year in South Florida.

Commissioners voted 4-2 Tuesday to select a legal team consisting of The Ferraro Law Firm; Napoli Shkolnik PLLC; and Stull, Stull & Brody.

Lawsuits aimed at the pharmaceutical industry have accused drug companies of misleading patients and doctors about the dangers of prescription medication, producing a public health emergency that is straining government services.

“The only thing these companies truly understand is money,” said Paul Napoli, one of the lawyers who will be representing the county.
