Our Philosophy

TGKI Law believes that school districts and related institutions are not only entitled to, but legally obligated to taxpayers, to file for damages in an effort to recoup losses incurred in relation to the vaping epidemic.

Our Principles

TGKI Law is dedicated to holding vaping manufacturers and distributors accountable for their actions on behalf of schools who spent valuable resources trying to combat the vaping crisis and protect students.


With several vaping cases already filed, TGKI Law strongly encourages districts to act quickly for the best opportunity to recover maximum damages.


Vaping is the next epidemic to face our country, and like the opioid crisis, it too was driven by the actions of unscrupulous manufacturers and distributors who seem to have taken a page out of big tobacco’s playbook on how to attract and addict new users. Sadly, they have aimed their target at our children. Vaping is growing at an alarming rate among teens, while vaping-related illness, injury and death are on the rise. Less tragic but no less real is the economic loss incurred by local school districts and related institutions who have spent tremendous resources trying to educate and protect their students while working to address and combat this crisis.

In addition to the time and money needed to develop educational programs and safety policies, districts have spent valuable resources to hire additional security, train staff, pay overtime, purchase special detectors and other equipment, modify school bathrooms, buildings and grounds to deter vaping in certain areas and more. TGKI Law, in conjunction with co-counsel Jason P. Sultzer of The Sultzer Law Group, is here to hold vaping manufacturers and distributors accountable for the economic damage they’ve caused and help schools recover damages for the resources they’ve lost as a result of the crisis they created.


The number of vaping-related lawsuits is growing quickly and filing EARLY usually provides clients with the best opportunity to recover the maximum amount of financial damages, so we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
