Sokolove Law believes in the power of giving back. The work we do extends far beyond fighting for justice and compensation for families suffering from mesothelioma and personal injuries. Our mission is to make a lasting, positive impact on our community and society as a whole.
Sokolove Law Community-Focused Programs
Many reach out to us for legal support. But we know there are hundreds of men, women, children, and families in our local communities who are struggling. Through clothing drives, food drives, research funding, and more, we help those in need to go on to lead healthy and independent lives.
Ever since we opened the doors to our legal practice in 1979, community service has been at the forefront of our working agenda. As we help our communities by giving back, we become better equipped to assist our clients in the legal space.
Miles for Meso
Sokolove Law is proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of Miles for Meso, an annual series of 5k races, fun runs, and walks that take place across the country. Alongside the sponsoring organization, our goal with these events is to spread awareness about mesothelioma and raise money for research.
Over $350,000 in proceeds from the races have gone to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF), a non-profit dedicated to finding better treatment options for this rare and deadly cancer. Additional funds from the races have been donated to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO). This organization works to spread awareness of asbestos-related diseases in an effort to see a global ban issued on asbestos use.
The B Fund Candy Drive
Employees of Sokolove Law are proud to contribute to the B Fund. The B Fund was created to empower parents and children to be the change they wish to see in the world. The organization was founded by parents of critically ill children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Boston Children’s Hospital. These inspired parents wanted to show their children the value of philanthropy and teach them the benefits of giving back in a fun way.
Families involved in the B Fund give their time and talents to celebrate the joys of giving back. The organization and its members work to teach children the importance of kindness, generosity, and community involvement through experiential learning. Proceeds from the B Fund benefit Boston Children’s Hospital in their efforts to support families that care for critically ill children.
Sokolove Law also participated in the B Fund Halloween Candy Drive where the collected candy is provided to Boston Children’s Hospital Yawkey Inn along with a matching monetary donation per piece of candy donated. Last year the B Fund raised over $25,000. The Inn provides housing to the families of Boston Children’s Hospital patients, many of whom need a short-term place to stay in the Boston area.
Warm Hands, Warm Hearts Winter Apparel Drive
The winter months are the most difficult time of year for people who are homeless, many of whom are veterans. They spend much of their time outdoors having to brave frigid temperatures and snow.
Sokolove Law employees have worked to help keep those who are homeless safe and comfortable throughout the winter months by collecting coats, sweaters, hats, scarves, gloves, and warm socks for the Warm Hands, Warm Hearts Winter Apparel Drive.
This clothing drive is a part of Friends of Boston’s Homeless efforts to help people who are homeless take the next steps to leading hopeful lives off of the streets and into dignified housing.
Friends of Boston’s Homeless supports Woods Mullen Women’s Shelter and Southampton Men’s Shelter in Boston’s South End. These shelters serve over 800 people every day—70% of whom are men and 30% of whom are women.

Project Just Because Adopt-a-Family
Project Just Because helps families in need from all over the state of Massachusetts. They are dedicated to helping as many men, women, and children as they can by being a resource for items that families need while creating an element of hope for a brighter tomorrow.
The Value of Community Service at Sokolove Law
At the end of the day, our main goal is to help others struggling to get the help they need.
Because of this, our team knows the importance of giving back to as many people as possible. We’ve seen the first-hand benefits of our drives and donations countless times throughout the years, and we’re immensely proud that we have been able to help people in our community.
The Sokolove Law team will continue to serve the community any way it can.
