Jim Sokolove founded Sokolove Law in 1979. His mission was to help people suffering from asbestos-related diseases. With his guidance, Sokolove Law expanded to become one of the most prominent firms in America. Today, Sokolove Law helps people from all backgrounds get exceptional legal help.
Jim Sokolove, Founder and Chairman (retired 2013)
In 1979, James “Jim” Sokolove was a new attorney very concerned by the state of the legal system. All too often, he saw that people who needed the most legal help had the greatest trouble finding it. Jim set out to become a personal injury lawyer with one mission. He aimed to give everyone the same opportunity for justice, regardless of race or income.
Jim’s mission was a success. For more than 40 years, Sokolove Law has helped clients get the legal help they need. Thanks to Jim, hundreds of people have received the justice they deserved.
