Medical Understanding of Mesothelioma, Treatments, and Diagnosis

Their legal insight is complemented by medical knowledge of:
- Mesothelioma signs and symptoms

The best state for you to file your claim may not be the one in which you reside. For this reason, we work to determine which state will best maximize your potential compensation and file your mesothelioma lawsuit there.
Knowledge of Asbestos Trust Funds
Receiving compensation from an asbestos trust fund requires complex documentation and significant research.
There are dozens of court-ordered asbestos trust funds set up to compensate victims of asbestos-related diseases.
Working with a mesothelioma law firm like Sokolove Law is a good way to avoid costly missteps and minimize the time it takes to receive possible compensation.
The period following a mesothelioma diagnosis is one of pain and uncertainty. Time does not stop, and there are hard decisions that need to be made.
Victims of asbestos exposure need a legal team that makes them feel comfortable and supports them during this time of need.
You can trust that Sokolove Law attorneys have your best interests in mind and provide you with the support you need.
Questions About Our Mesothelioma Law Firm
If you are considering pursuing a legal claim, you should evaluate 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.
What are the typical outcomes of your mesothelioma cases?
The average mesothelioma case value is $1 Million. 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 helping build your case.
This team includes a registered nurse who will be available to answer questions you may have, including answers to medical questions about your diagnosis and treatment and guidance about side effects from chemotherapy, as well as communicating 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 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 attorneys, medical experts, investigators, paralegals and support staff. You will benefit from their combined experience with your specific type of exposure.
When you work with our law firm, you are part of our family.
Does your mesothelioma law firm handle cases in every state?
Yes, we’ve helped people in all 50 states. Sokolove Law is a national 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 jobsite 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 compensation for you and your loved ones.
