A National Law Firm Founded Over 45 Years Ago

Jim Sokolove was a new attorney deeply concerned by injustice in the legal system. Too often, he saw that those who needed legal help the most had the most trouble finding it.

That’s what led Jim to become a lawyer dedicated to a single mission: to reinvent how people obtain legal services so everyone has equal access to our justice system and exceptional representation.

Sokolove Law was founded in 1979 and has grown into a well-established law firm with a location in the state of California and nationwide as well as access to a large legal network.

Our experienced California attorneys work to help clients who have been injured get the compensation they deserve.

Personal Injury

Sokolove Law has over 45 years of experience handling personal injury cases, which refer to when a third party causes you physical or financial harm. Car accidents and medical malpractice represent two of the most common types of personal injury cases.


Mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, you may be eligible to pursue financial compensation. Our law firm has secured over $5 Billion for mesothelioma victims and their families nationwide.

Birth Injury

Birth injuries refer to any injury an infant suffers before, during, or shortly after the child’s delivery. In some cases, birth injuries are caused by medical errors made by doctors or other health care professionals and can lead to a lifetime of care. Our birth injury lawyers have successfully secured over $917 Million on behalf of children who were injured at birth.

Nursing Home Abuse

Elder abuse happens at alarming rates in nursing homes and long-term care facilities across the country. Our law firm has recovered over $273 Million for seniors who experienced abuse or neglect in nursing homes.

Dangerous Drugs & Medical Devices

If you were injured after taking a medication or using a medical device, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and other damages. Sokolove Law has secured over $1.6 Billion in total successful verdicts and settlements from dangerous drug and medical device companies.

Disability Denial

Disability insurance is supposed to provide you with income when you’re unable to work due to a medical disability. If an injury or illness is keeping you from working, we may be able to help you secure benefits — even if you’ve been denied before.

Video Summary: In this video, Dennis, a Sokolove Law client, talks about his experience working with our firm.

They said, you have Mesothelioma, you’ve been around asbestos. We knew asbestos was in things, but we didn’t know it was dangerous. I called Sokolove and in two days there were two guys at my house. If someone was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, I would suggest they call Sokolove. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation.

Walter Testimonial Video Thumbnail
Video Summary: Walter, a Sokolove Law client and U.S. Navy veteran, talks about why he filed a mesothelioma lawsuit.

He said, “You have all your paperwork in order?” I said, “Yes I do.” He said, “Well, keep it there” Nobody ever said anything, about it being dangerous. The powers at be knew. I said, “Well, heck with this noise. They’re gonna hear from me.” I wasn’t suing the government, I wasn’t suing the U.S. Navy, I was suing the manufacturer. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation.
