Our mission here at The Kokolakis Law Firm is to add value to our clients lives by helping them achieve their goals; solve their problems and assist in capturing their opportunities.

Of course, we, as well as other attorneys, help our clients start, sell, buy and even manage their businesses or buy or sell commercial and residential properties and other legal services but we do not stop there. We make sure to add that extra something that goes above and beyond just drafting a contract or advising on the law.

This extra something is what we call value. Sure, the law is important but our clients see it only as a means to an end. We strive to have our clients feel the value we provide; realize the benefits of our services. Sometimes this means we act as legal counselors and other times as business advisors but at all times we are attorneys with a strong understanding of the law and how it applies to our clients needs.

We understand that at times our clients care not about the law but about their unique business, their families and their problems and we adapt accordingly. We make sure that every one of our clients receives the special attention they deserve. This comes with truly caring as we service our clients. You aren’t just another case file but rather a new member of our family.

Simply put, it’s all about an experience; one that has no equal. It’s different. Join us and experience our difference. Call to schedule your personal strategy session today!

About Attorney

John Kokolakis earned his undergraduate degree from Queens College and his Juris Doctor from Hofstra University School of Law. He is admitted to practice law in all the State Courts of New York, as well as the Federal District Courts of the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York. He is also admitted to the Connecticut bar.

Mr. Kokolakis is a former management auditor and community associate to the City of New York. While conducting performance audits of city agencies and private contractors contracted by the City, he learned to pay attention to detail. His position as a legislative Aid to a New York Senator allowed him to research, analyze and draft state legislation. He represented the Senator at political functions and in various committees. Further, he responded and addressed concerns from constituents. His attention to detail and his ability to negotiate and offer compromise allowed him to serve those positions well.
