Outstanding! At my first meeting with Attorney Sokolow , I was informed of the different avenues my case might take. Attorney Soklolow and his staff kept me informed on every detail related to my case. I needed an attorney who knew Landlord and Tenant Laws for the District of Columbia. I had a tenant who refused to move from a property, I wanted to sell. In my case the tenant moved and and the home was sold. Without the knowledge and support of Attorney Sokolow, I know the result would have not been favorable. I highly recommend, Attorney Sokolow to landlords and real estate professionals.

Best choice ever and money well spent. He carefully listed to my concern and provided several options. When I was in doubt, best practice was used. Great decision.

First time dealing with a non-paying tenant as a property owner in DC. Aaron walked me through the process and potential pitfalls on the phone, and handled all filings and appearances in a professional manner.
The case and actual eviction went about as smoothly as such things can go.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I strongly endorse this lawyer! He was opposing counsel on a landlord & tenant matter, where he zealously represented his client: being quick witted, knowledgeable, and worked strongly toward his case, while being civil to me in the process, even throughout our differences in the matter. He is a great advocate for his clients and I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a landlord & tenant attorney!
