What to Expect from Top Asbestos Law Firms
Finding a law firm, filing a lawsuit — asbestos litigation is very confusing territory for those who haven’t gone to law school. But don’t worry: The best mesothelioma law firms will provide you with an experienced legal team that’s able to focus on the specifics of your case and work with you every step of the way.
When working with a top mesothelioma law firm, you can expect your legal team to:
- Determine if you have a valid mesothelioma claim. To get started on this, get a free legal case review today.
- Gather evidence to build your case. Your team of asbestos experts will get your medical records and look into your background and work history to prove asbestos exposure and figure out which asbestos-containing products (and how many) you were exposed to. This allows us to then track down the companies that manufactured those products and caused your illness.
- Consider all possible routes to compensation. Depending on the details of your case, you may actually have multiple options available to you to pursue financial compensation. These include personal injury lawsuits, wrongful death lawsuits, asbestos trust funds, and VA benefits.
- File your mesothelioma lawsuit. Your asbestos lawyer will file any claims or complaints on your behalf before the statute of limitations for your case is up. Once the statute of limitations in your state passes, you won’t have the opportunity to file a lawsuit again — ever. Be sure to get in touch with a law firm as soon as possible after your mesothelioma diagnosis.
- Settle your case or go to court. Most mesothelioma cases settle before going to court. But if your case sees a courtroom, you can expect your legal team to take care of it. They’ll argue your case before a jury and handle any appeals if necessary.

Questions About Our Mesothelioma Law Firm
If you’re considering pursuing a legal claim, you should evaluate a firm’s past experience in mesothelioma claims, case preparation, and settlements.
We’ve compiled a list of common questions and our answers to help guide you through the legal process and give you confidence in Sokolove Law.
How many years of experience does your asbestos law firm have?
Sokolove Law has a proven track record with over 40 years of successful results — bringing justice and compensation to thousands of mesothelioma victims and their families.
What are the typical outcomes of your mesothelioma cases?
The average mesothelioma case value is $1 Million, and in total, we have recovered over $4.7 Billion for our clients. While we cannot guarantee the value of your case, we aim to maximize the amount of compensation you may receive.
Does your firm have a nurse on staff?
When you work with Sokolove Law, you will have a dedicated legal team and support staff helping to build your case, including a registered nurse (RN).
Our registered nurse will be available to answer questions you may have about your diagnosis and treatment, provide guidance on the side effects of chemotherapy, and communicate any medical updates to your dedicated attorneys.
Will my case be handled on an individual basis or “bundled” with several other similar cases?
We believe every case is unique and work to gather the fact pattern of your asbestos exposure and medical history. Your individual claim will be filed when your legal team has confirmed your diagnosis and identified all the asbestos-containing products that may have caused your cancer.
Will I be able to speak with members of your asbestos law firm as needed? Will my calls be returned promptly and my questions answered clearly?
We have a team of hardworking case managers available 24/7 — even during the holidays. Your team consists of asbestos attorneys, nursing staff, medical experts, investigators, paralegals, and more. You will benefit from their combined experience with your specific type of exposure.
When you work with our law firm, you become part of our family and we’ll be there for you.
Does your mesothelioma law firm handle cases in every state?
Yes, we’ve helped mesothelioma victims in all 50 states. Sokolove Law is a national asbestos law firm with an office and licensed attorney in nearly every state — in fact, we probably already represent someone in your same occupation or at the same location where you were exposed to asbestos.
How much do I have to pay you to represent me and when will I have to pay?
We work on what is called a “contingency basis,” which means that you pay absolutely nothing upfront. Our lawyers are only paid if they succeed in recovering mesothelioma compensation for you and your family members.
How long do I have to contact a mesothelioma law firm?
Because the statutes of limitations (or the deadline for filing a lawsuit) varies from state to state, it’s very important to reach out to an asbestos law firm as soon as possible after your or your loved one’s mesothelioma diagnosis.
Once the deadline passes, you won’t have the opportunity to press charges over your illness again.
Can a family member hire a law firm for a mesothelioma case?
Yes — family members, or court-appointed representatives of the mesothelioma victim’s estate, can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of their loved one who passed away from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.
Has your loved one passed away from mesothelioma? Get in touch with our mesothelioma law firm today for a free case evaluation.
Can your law firm help me determine when and where I was exposed to asbestos?
Yes. The asbestos experts working with Sokolove Law have vast knowledge of asbestos products, occupations and job sites. They will look into your medical records, background and work history to determine how and where you were exposed to asbestos.
Who will I be suing when I file a lawsuit for mesothelioma compensation?
When you file a lawsuit with a mesothelioma law firm, you’ll be suing the manufacturer of the asbestos-containing products that caused your illness. If you are a veteran who was exposed to asbestos during your service, know you will not be suing the U.S. government or military.
