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 personal injury lawyer dedicated to a single mission: to reinvent how people obtain legal services so everyone has equal access to our justice system as well as superior representation within it.
Founded in 1979, Sokolove Law has grown into a well-established law firm with locations nationwide and a large legal network. Our attorneys work to help clients who have been injured through no fault of their own get the compensation they deserve.

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.
