Paul J. Napoli, Of Counsel

Paul J. Napoli is a nationally renowned personal injury, medical malpractice, and mass tort litigation attorney with more than 25 years of experience in the legal field. As a top injury attorney, he aggressively defends the rights of his clients in courtrooms throughout the country, fighting to ensure they get the maximum amount of compensation they deserve. Trusted by those he represents and respected by his colleagues in the legal field, he has a well-earned reputation for integrity and honesty, and a dedication to ensuring justice is served.

With his well-documented track record in achieving the most successful outcomes in legal cases, Mr. Napoli rates a score of 10 out of 10 on AVVO, the highest possible ranking from the nation's leading lawyer referral and rating service. He is well-known for consistently achieving jury awards and settlements involving multiple millions of dollars for plaintiffs, and he brings his particular brand of excellence, his high- powered legal skill, and his tenacious approach work on behalf of clients at Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, where he has led the legal team in a number of breakthrough legal cases.
Mr. Napoli became particularly well-known in the aftermath of 9/11, through the work he did both in contributing to recovery efforts, as well as in assisting those demolitions workers and first responders who were injured on the site.

On 9/11, the Napoli firm had its NYC offices across the street from the World Trade Center, and its employees were eyewitnesses to the terrorist attacks on lower Manhattan. Paul was appointed by the United States District Court as Co-Liaison Counsel representing more than 11,000 first responders and other rescue and recovery workers who became ill or were injured during the rescue, recovery, and debris-removal activities at the World Trade Center site in the months following 9/11. Paul was instrumental in obtaining settlements that are today valued at more than $900 million for his clients and others.

His efforts on behalf of 9/11 workers and their families left him with a deep, abiding passion to work towards changes in the existing social and legal system. He became heavily involved in 9/11 charitable organizations and advocacy groups, while speaking out on the legal issues facing victims and their rights pertaining to settlements after 9/11.

Paul also lobbied New York State and the U.S. Congress for two important pieces of legislation to assist WTC-injured workers, downtown residents, and office workers. These include:
An amendment to New York's General Municipal Law 50-I, (known as "JIMMY NOLAN'S LAW"), that provided a one-year savings statute for otherwise time-barred first responder claims. This effectively extended the amount of time for those injured in 9/11 rescue, clean up, and recovery efforts to seek compensation from public corporations.

The JAMES ZADROGA 9/11 HEALTH AND COMPENSATION ACT OF 2010 ("Zadroga Bill"), which extended the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program Fund indefinitely and allowed individuals and family members of deceased workers to continue to file claims for compensation under the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001. This provides for medical monitoring, medical treatment, and cash awards for injured first responders and other WTC survivors, local office workers and community members injured by the post-9/11 fallout of over $2.8 billion dollars.

Paul has been a generous contributor to the 9/11 Memorial, Memorial Museum, and other organizations working to support first responders and other WTC-injured workers.

Paul has deep roots and strong personal and professional ties to the city of New York, where he began his legal education and career. Paul is a 1992 graduate of St. John's University School of Law and holds a B.S. from Fordham University (1989) in accounting. He is admitted to practice both in New York and Illinois, and holds "pro hac vice" admissions in several other states.
