Asbestos-Related Companies

Throughout the 20th century, companies manufactured or sold thousands of asbestos-containing products — ranging from brakes in vehicles to building and construction materials. Sadly, many of these companies knew about the dangers of asbestos exposure but hid the risks from employees and consumers.

At Sokolove Law, we’ve recovered over $5 Billion for thousands of mesothelioma patients and their families nationwide. Let us get you the results you deserve.
