Joseph Napoli is a dedicated legal advocate, academic scholar, and performance artist who brings all his education, skills, experience, and talent to bear in each case that he handles.
Currently, Mr. Napoli spends most of his time advocating for clients injured in mass tort cases that involve multi-million-dollar damage figures. Specifically, Mr. Napoli and the other members of this legal team represent persons injured in drinking water poisoning cases, such as the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (such as PFOA and PFOS) that have affected residents in communities across New York and across the country. Moreover, Napoli Law partnered with the NAACP to speak out for victims of the Flint, Michigan lead poisoning crisis.
Mr. Napoli also represents victims of defective products. Whether related to a design defect, manufacturing defect, or a failure to warn about known dangers, these actions often affect millions of innocent consumers.
In terms of individual actions, Mr. Napoli often represents victims of medical malpractice and construction negligence. When he was only a year out of law school, Mr. Napoli obtained a landmark decision reversing a one-hundred-year-old law allowing plaintiffs with foreign objects left in their bodies after surgery to sue from the date of discovery. Mr. Napoli is also a recognized authority on New York’s complex scaffolding law, which holds some construction companies strictly liable for the damages that they cause.
Mr. Napoli is also one of the few personal injury attorneys in New York who routinely handles civil appeals.
