Only a few law firms specialize in handling asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits. A mesothelioma law firm focuses on supporting patients and their families through the legal process. Skilled mesothelioma attorneys work with their clients to help them receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other living expenses.
About Our Mesothelioma Law Firm
Jim Sokolove founded Sokolove Law in 1979. His vision and drive helped bring justice and compensation to thousands.
Sokolove Law is a nationally recognized law firm with attorneys in almost every state. Our goal is to maximize the compensation that a mesothelioma victim may be entitled to. We advocate for the legal rights of people who have developed incurable cancer after being exposed to asbestos.
An experienced mesothelioma law firm can help a family receive the maximum compensation they may deserve and bring justice to companies who wrongly exposed people to asbestos.
Why Hire a Mesothelioma Law Firm?
Hiring a mesothelioma law firm to represent your legal interests is an important decision. During challenging times like these, it is vital that you focus on the important things in life: the health and well-being of you and your family.
The costs of treatment can drain a family of their resources. While you focus on your well-being, a mesothelioma law firm will take care of the legal matters to help ease your financial burden through monetary compensation.
This compensation can help pay for:
- Medical treatments and surgeries
- Living expenses
- Physical therapy
- Travel expenses associated with treatment
- Wages lost due to inability to work
- Counseling and support services
- Funeral costs
Dependable firms like Sokolove Law understand that each person harmed by asbestos has their own story. They treat clients with compassion, working on their behalf, and delivering strong results.
What to Look for in a Mesothelioma Law Firm
Good mesothelioma lawyers will see their clients as people, not dollar signs, and treat them accordingly. With that in mind, here is what you should look for when trying to find the law firm that is right for you.
Your relationship with a mesothelioma law firm should begin with a free in-person consultation. A good firm comes to you, wherever you are located, ready to listen.
Along with learning the basic information necessary to begin reviewing your case, the consultation will give you a reassuring sense of the firm’s collective experience.
This experience should include:
- Deep asbestos industry knowledge
- Strong ties to the asbestos victim and disease prevention community
- A client-centered focus from day one

No Cost to You
The free consultation is not a gimmick to get you in the door — it is the first expression of a quality mesothelioma law firm’s commitment to clients.
By working on what is known as a contingency-fee basis, the firm earns a percentage of the potential settlement. That is to say, the firm is only paid once the client has secured compensation.
Our clients pay nothing upfront — and we only get paid if your case awards you and your loved ones with financial compensation.
Years of Experience
Asbestos litigation has been going on longer than any other mass tort action in the history of the United States.
Top mesothelioma law firms have decades of experience and have helped thousands of families recover billions of dollars in damages from the companies that harmed their loved ones.
Sokolove Law has more than 40 years of experience in asbestos and mesothelioma litigation.
A seasoned mesothelioma lawyer has spent decades advocating for families who have been victims of corporate greed as profits were put ahead of people.
Mesothelioma lawyers have:
- Broad knowledge of asbestos regulations and high-risk occupations
- Access to a massive database of evidence, asbestos-containing products, and locations
- An understanding of the moral consequences of a lawsuit’s outcome
Sokolove Law has caring, thoughtful attorneys who put your needs before their own and work with you.
Medical Understanding of Mesothelioma, Treatments, and Diagnosis
A mesothelioma lawyer maintains relationships with patients at every stage of their cancer — and with their families.
Their legal insight is complemented by medical knowledge of:
- Mesothelioma signs and symptoms
- Each stage of the disease
- Expected outcomes of a diagnosis
- Top mesothelioma doctors and treatment facilities
- Clinical trials
Our mesothelioma attorneys have available to them the latest knowledge and information from medical experts who work with mesothelioma patients.
A mesothelioma law firm with a record of success across the country can help you file your claim in any state. Their fluency in varying state and asbestos trust fund regulations will minimize legal roadblocks and maximize the potential value of your compensation.
The best state for you to file your claim may not be the one in which you reside. For consultations and to execute your wishes in court, your legal team will do the traveling.
Only a national mesothelioma law firm can accommodate your specific needs and facilitate the complex process.
Sokolove Law has a nationwide network of attorneys that can file your claim in any state to maximize the compensation you may deserve.
Track Record of Success
Successful mesothelioma law firms have helped thousands of victims win high mesothelioma settlement amounts.
It’s important to look at a firm’s track record because corporate defense lawyers are skilled at delaying and appealing compensation. Find a law firm with strong past performance in all types of mesothelioma cases, one that consistently guides victims to settlements and successful jury verdicts.
For over 40 years, Sokolove Law has recovered more than $4.5 Billion for over 6,000 individual mesothelioma victims and those they leave behind.
Knowledge of Asbestos Trust Funds
Receiving compensation from an asbestos trust fund requires complex documentation.
There are dozens of asbestos trust funds set up to compensate victims of asbestos-related diseases.
Working with an experienced mesothelioma law firm is the best way to avoid costly missteps and minimize the time it takes to reach a successful settlement.
The mesothelioma lawyers at Sokolove Law have access to thousands of medical and legal resources that have helped them secure trust fund money for clients.
The period following a mesothelioma diagnosis is one of pain and uncertainty. Time does not stop, and there are hard decisions that need to be made.
Victims of asbestos exposure need a legal team that makes them feel comfortable and supports them during this time of need.
You can trust that Sokolove Law attorneys will always have your best interests in mind.
