Secure Submission

Founded in Massachusetts Over 40 Years Ago by Jim Sokolove

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 Massachusetts in 1979, Sokolove Law has grown into a well-established law firm with locations nationwide and a large legal network.

We work to help clients who have been injured through no fault of their own obtain the compensation they deserve.

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.

We Fight for Innocent Victims Diagnosed with Mesothelioma

We Make It EASY

If we determine you have a case, a member of our legal team can fly to you and discuss your case from your home or hospital room. You don’t have to set foot in court if you don’t want to. Everything is done in a way that allows you to focus on your health and recovery.

We Make It FAST

We know the strain mesothelioma can have on your family and your finances. That’s why most of our cases settle out of court — so that you can get the results you need as soon as possible. Many of our past clients have started to receive compensation in as few as 90 days.
