James C. Napoli Super Lawyers

James C. Napoli is a founding member of the law firm of Caesar, Napoli & Spivak PLLC After graduating from law school, he joined an insurance firm specializing in insurance analysis, personal injury defense and trial work. He quickly distinguished himself as a superior trial lawyer, and he was named a partner after six years with the firm. Having lifelong ties to downtown New York City, as well as a strong desire to represent injured victims, Mr. Napoli started his own personal injury firm in 1989. Caesar, Napoli & Spivak PLLC represents injured persons in the following types of cases:

  • Construction Accidents
  • Tractor Trailer Accidents
  • Wrongful Death
  • Automobile Accidents
  • Defective Products
  • Medical Negligence
  • Defective Roadways

Mr. Napoli's reputation as an impressive lawyer in the courtroom has resulted in significant recoveries. Over the years, Caesar, Napoli & Spivak PLLC has recovered numerous seven and eight figure verdicts and settlements for our clients.

Mr. Napoli stresses the importance of maintaining open and transparent communication with his clients to best serve their needs, as well as sparing no expense in case discovery. Rather than working with insurance companies on a claims basis, Mr. Napoli has found that the best results arise from fully preparing each case for trial. Even if the client chooses to settle, diligent preparation often significantly raises the settlement figure by demonstrating the full value of the case to the insurance company.

Mr. Napoli is admitted to practice before all of the Courts of the State of New York and the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. Mr. Napoli has acted as special counsel for Covenant House of New York City, a non-profit organization assisting homeless children, and he has served on the boards of numerous non-profit associations.

He is a Presidential Member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, a Sustaining Member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and a member of the Bar of the City of New York.
