How Sokolove Law Can Help You

When you partner with Sokolove Law, you will be getting a lifelong advocate who will stand in your corner and help you protect your legal rights. Here are some of the fundamental ways in which Sokolove Law supports its clients.

Attorney Advice

Sokolove Law is made up of experienced nursing home abuse attorneys who provide invaluable advice and services to victims and family members seeking justice against assisted living facilities.

Case Value Assessment

Our attorneys may be able to calculate your case value (how much money you might receive in a lawsuit, for example), explain your legal options, and advise you on the best course of action.

Filing a Claim

We excel at boiling down an extremely complex legal process into a series of concrete steps. We will guide you through every step, from filing a complaint to collecting evidence to negotiating settlements.

Settlement vs Verdict

With our decades’ worth of experience, we know when to take a settlement offer and when to go to trial, how to present the strongest case, and how to get as much nursing home abuse compensation for our clients as possible.

Top Qualities of a Nursing Home Abuse Law Firm

You can separate the top nursing home abuse law firms from the rest by looking for the following qualities. Sokolove Law prides itself on being a people-first law firm that not only meets these qualities but exceeds them.

A Good Track Record

Nursing home abuse law firms should have a proven track record of success.

They should have dozens — if not hundreds or thousands — of successful outcomes in nursing home abuse lawsuits. Ideally, they will have won verdicts and settlements worth at least several hundred thousand dollars.

Sokolove Law has recovered over $195 Million for victims of nursing home negligence and abuse.

Communication

Arguably nothing is more important than being able to communicate effectively with your chosen law firm.

At Sokolove Law, we believe that great communication is the foundation of a positive attorney-client relationship. Our case managers, paralegals, and attorneys are great listeners first. They also respond to questions in a prompt and thoughtful manner and explain the law in an easy-to-understand way.

Experience

10 years’ worth of experience is good — but multiple decades’ worth of experience is far better. The amount of time a firm has been in business is a key indicator of its success.

Additionally, a firm with ample experience can help you learn how to understand and spot the warning signs of abuse.

Our nursing home abuse law firm has over 40 years’ worth of experience providing legal counsel and supporting families like yours.

Fair Terms

A quality nursing home abuse law firm is an investment well worth making for many victims. However, potential clients should have an idea of typical legal fee ranges for their area and situation.

Law firms must be transparent about any fees they charge, what services are and are not included, and how payment will be handled.

Free Case Review

No good law firm will ask for payment upfront. The best nursing home abuse law firms will listen to your story, provide a free consultation, and, if eligible, begin working on your case right away without down payments or fees.

Sokolove Law works on a contingency-fee-basis, meaning we only receive a portion of the verdict or settlement if your case is successful.

Top nursing home abuse law firms have a national reach, meaning they are able to take cases from Americans in any state.

Sokolove Law has a nationwide reach and will be able to file your wrongful death or personal injury case in the best possible jurisdiction, maximizing the claim’s value.

References

Newer clients who have little-to-no experience working with attorneys may be wary of giving their case to a firm without references.

References are former clients who are available to speak with potential new clients. This can go a long way in assuring potential clients of a firm’s past performance and experience.

Give us a call today at (800) 995-1212 to learn more about our clients’ success stories.

Specialization

Good nursing home abuse law firms are not a dime a dozen. In the United States, nursing home abuse is a very specific type of case that requires deep, specialized knowledge of nursing home regulations, elder law, local state laws, statutes of limitations, and more.

Many law firms are willing to take a case that involves nursing home abuse but lack the necessary expertise. For decades, Sokolove Law has fought on behalf of those affected by nursing home abuse, securing compensation for families like yours.

Nursing Home Abuse Resources by State

Each state has its own unique set of laws, which inform how families affected by nursing home abuse can take legal action. Additionally, each state has its own unique history with nursing home abuse.

According to rankings compiled by the non-profit organization Families for Better Care, some states’ nursing homes commit far more violations than others.
