Paul Napoli’s passion is to shine a light on issues that put the well-being of the public in danger and sharing his knowledge and experience to inform others in the legal field has been a hallmark of his career. Mr. Napoli has written on environmental contamination for the New York Law Journal, and on environmental contamination in “The Cost of Contamination” for the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Journal and AWWA Opflow Magazine.
As a leader in the fight to protect the public against potential dangers due to unsafe and potentially illegal practices, he has extensively litigated as an environmental lawyer on behalf of municipal clients for contamination to land and water supplies resulting from petroleum and related chemical spills. While easy access to safe, clean drinking water is crucial to the health of us all, numerous reports in recent years have brought to light concerns over water contamination. Once water is tainted, it is often impossible to completely eradicate the problem, and it is crucial for water suppliers to take a proactive approach in monitoring and addressing potential problems. As part of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC’s litigation over contaminated water supplies, Paul Napoli successfully led the team, which obtained more than $50 million on behalf of numerous municipalities whose drinking water was affected.
Mr. Napoli is active in several bar associations, has been interviewed on numerous television shows, in newspaper and magazine articles and is frequently consulted by attorneys around the country on a variety of mass tort, professional malpractice and general liability issues.
