Raymond Gill

A Bergen County judge approved a settlement of $4.14 million to a teenager disabled after a prescription drug overdose. The plaintiff, 17, had a group of friends over at the Saddle River home of his father, who was away. The group then went to the home of a friend whose mother was away says the plaintiff’s drug lawyer Raymond Gill Jr. of Gill and Chamas in Woodbridge. The plaintiff, who had received previous treatment for substance abuse, ingested a large amount of Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug he received from the defendant. The next morning the group found the plaintiff unresponsive and showing signs of distress. The plaintiff, in cardiac arrest, was revived but had suffered a brain injury from lack of oxygen. He is now confined to a wheelchair and requires round-the-clock assistance.
