Have you heard of JUUL? or JUULING?
GSA is representing families of teenagers who have become addicted to nicotine through use of JUUL vaping devices.
JUULing is the act of using a JUUL vaping device, an item that is rechargeable and has a similar appearance to that of a USB drive, which is filled with a JUUL pod, a nicotine solution. The widespread use of vaping among teens has been covered by a variety of news outlets such as the New York Times and Mashable. As the complaint discusses, JUUL has geared much of its advertising towards teens using bright colors and attractive models, which selling a product that is reported to have a higher dose of nicotine than tradition cigarettes. Furthermore, the product draws in young users by coming in flavors such as Mango and Creme Brulee.
Since its release, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has reported a steady increase in the numbers of high school students JUULing. GSA’s investigation has revealed that there are countless high school and even middle school students who cannot stop JUULIng and have become addicted to nicotine and put themselves at risk adverse changes to their brain chemistry. GSA believes JUUL is responsible for this phenomenon. On July 24, Massachusetts' Attorney General, Maura Healey, announced that the state would begin an investigation on the company due to determine its practices of targeting minors and enticing them to use their device. In the press conference she stated, "they're engaged in an effort to get kids addicted, to get kids hooked, so that they'll have customers for the rest of their lives."
GSA is currently one of a coordinated group of three law firms currently taking legal action against JUUL. On June 26, 2018, we filed a complaint (link here) against JUUL on behalf of a 15-year-old, D.P., and his mother. The complaint details that after being introduced to JUUL during his freshman year, D.P. became addicting to vaping and nicotine. The complaint states "D.P. has been unable to refrain from JUULing. D.P. is severely addicted to nicotine, which has altered his brain physically and chemically, and has put him at risk for a lifetime of life-long health problems, to say nothing of the economic costs of nicotine addiction."
The case has attracted significant media attention including articles in Wired, the Daily Mail, Vice and a segment on Good Morning America in which GSA attorney Jason Solotaroff appeared. Links to the articles and segments are below.

The last thing anybody wants to be involved in is a legal process. It doesn't help that the law itself appears at times to create confusion and lack logic. And then there is the task of choosing a capable lawyer that you can rely on and trust. I was fortunate to have recommended to me Jason Solotaroff. Upon taking my case Mr. Solotaroff provided a highly professional and effective service both in educating me on the process and getting to work taking the necessary action, that I might add was made more difficult by highly manipulative defendants that knew how to use the law to hinder and frustrate. During what was a 2 year process Mr. Solotaroff became my partner, he was supportive but firm in his strategy and how it should be executed, which was ultimately successful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Solotaroff and Giskan Solotaroff & Anderson.
Partners In A Time Of Need
I turned to Giskan, Solotaroff & Anderson during an extremely difficult time in my life...a lay off. There were many complex layers to my situation and Mr. Solotaroff guided me through the process. He was open, honest, diligent, knowledgable about employment law in various states, and followed through quickly. There is no way I could have made it through this process without their hands on approach, patience and understanding.
I'm a whistleblower now, which isn't always an easy thing to be. It would be worse if I were alone, but I'm not. Jason Solotaroff heard my story, told me I had legal recourse, and took on my case, which is now on its way to Federal Court. For that I am already grateful. I could go on about Jason's process, insights, experience, and responsiveness (all excellent), but what I have appreciated most is the emphasis Jason places on details (I can't elaborate too much because of the status of my case) and his ability to explain what he sees and why it matters. I'm looking forward to working with him going forward, and strongly recommend his firm based on my experience with him.
Wrongful Termination Support
Jason Solotaroff represented me in a case I filed against a former employer for wrongful termination. He won me a substantial settlement - effectively doubling their severance offer. I could not have been more pleased with their work, timely responses to my inquiries, and advocacy on my behalf.
I was represented by Jason Solotoroff. He was thorough and fair. He fought to get me the best possible settlement and was attentive through the very end. I would recommend him.
The service provided was excellent. It was also very professional and friendly.
Smart, Creative, meticulous and unyielding
You'll get a tough, smart, winning team with Giskan, Solotaroff, Anderson and Stewart. I came to them with a difficult and convoluted case- they did all the legal untangling and came up with the most effective, aggressive and creative strategy for tackling my case and the other side was left playing catch-up. The most amazing thing about this group is that as smart, gifted and competitive as they are, they are still humane enough to also figure out contingency arrangements that make their brilliant representation accessible. We've won our case at every step.
