WELLESLEY, Mass., Jan. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fulfilling one of its core missions, in 2012 Sokolove Law made significant contributions to improve the lives of mesothelioma patients and their families.
As it has over the past several years, Sokolove Law contributed to a variety of mesothelioma-related events and organizations during the last 12 months. These included the nonprofit Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation; the Miles for Meso research fundraising group and race sponsor; and the Runner's Edge Foundation, which promotes running and healthy living in Southern Florida.
Sokolove Law also contributed to U.S. Navy veterans' organizations, whose members, while on duty, were often at high risk of developing mesothelioma through asbestos exposure. The groups include United States Submarine Veterans Inc. (USSVI), a membership organization for active and retired submariners; and the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum, through its SEAL Memorial Fund.
"The commitment of Sokolove Law to mesothelioma victims extends to promoting education and championing their legal rights," says company founder Jim Sokolove. "For that reason, the firm gives through multiple avenues. Our efforts to aid victims and their families include supporting research to find a cure for the disease and to raise awareness about its profound impact. In that way, Sokolove Law is also giving to the overall community."
Sokolove also observed: "While the specific missions of these organizations vary, each one is, directly or indirectly, committed to improving the health and quality of life for mesothelioma patients and their families. Because of that, we assist veterans' organizations that provide support to those harmed by asbestos exposure. We also help to honor the memory of those who have fallen to mesothelioma as a result of their service to the nation."
In summation, Sokolove said, "We challenge others to learn more about—and ultimately offer support to—these worthwhile causes."
