I interviewed a number of law firms before deciding to hire Sokolski & Zekaria to handle my very complicated DHCR case.
There are several important criteria needed to be fulfilled before you can make a definitve decision as to who is best to serve your requirements.
In my research, I learned that too many firms have too many alleged areas of expertise.You can't be everything to everyone. I wanted a firm who handled Landlord/Tenant law and by that I mean TENANT LAW...NO LANDLORDS REPRESENTED. Sokolski's practice is 90% TENANT LAW.
Too often you interview with a partner only to find your case has been "handed off" to a second string kid just out of law school. Sokolski writes his own briefs, motions, appeals etc. His depth of knowledge draws upon many areas of law and his uncanny ability to " think out of the box" is quite extraordinary.
When you hire Rob Sokolski, you hire Rob Sokolski. He will be in court with you along with all his years of experience. Period. He wears one hat and has always been a tireless fair housing advocate.
