Jeffrey Simon Honored By NLJ Among Plaintiffs’ Attorneys Trailblazers

DALLAS, TX—Simon Greenstone Panatier, P.C., founding partner Jeffrey Simon has been selected by The National Law Journal as a Plaintiffs’ Attorneys Trailblazer for his leadership role in pursuing accountability in the ongoing opioid epidemic.

Simon served as a lead negotiator in the Texas Opioid MDL and chairman of the Plaintiffs Steering Committee. A 2020 agreement with the Texas Attorney General’s office determined how the state opioid litigation would be negotiated, leading to Texas’ historic 2022 $1.85 billion settlement with several drug companies and distributors in the opioid supply chain.

His work has helped ensure that opioid litigation settlement monies will be used almost exclusively to fund opioid epidemic-related efforts and appropriately apportioned among the communities impacted by the epidemic, including $75 million designated for the distribution of NARCAN® Nasal Spray across the state.
