He is very knowledgeable and throughout the process, Rajiv provided us with the information on next steps. he prepped us with the settlement session on what kind of questions would the lawyers asked and a very precise and clear briefing. If you are looking for Disability lawyer, I highly recommend Rajiv.

    5 star review  Rajiv Hate in the Kotak Law Firm did a wonderful job in handling my long term disability case. From the initial phone conversation, I had the feeling that I was with the right lawyer since he made me feel very comfortable and confident that I can rely on him. Throughout the case, he is professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable in the area of long term disability. Whenever I have any concerns about my case and need a clarification, he validated my concerns and responded with explanations. Because of his expertise and astuteness, the case had a successful outcome and was resolved in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to the families and friends if they need a lawyer in this field.

  • 5 star review  I hired Kotak Law to represent me when my disability case was denied. No other lawyers were willing to help me. I met with the lawyer Rajiv who took on my case, fought hard on my behalf and won my case after going through to a hearing. I highly recommend Kotak Law if you have a disability benefit claim that has been denied. Rajiv's clerk, Charmaine, was fantastic to deal with as well.
