The nationwide law firm of Bernstein Liebhard LLP (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com) is investigating Risperdal lawsuits on behalf of young men and boys who developed a condition called gynecomastia, or male breast growth, allegedly due to their use of Risperdal.

The Firm is currently offering free Risperdal lawsuit consultations to any individual who may have developed gynecomastia due to Risperdal.
