Rajiv is simply awesome to deal with, incredibly competent in his profession and extremely well prepared for these arduous endeavors. The highest of praise to Mr. Hate and a special thank you to Charmaine for all of her assistance. Highly recommended! Keith Taylor

    Right from the moment I called this law firm I knew I was in good hands. Rajiv was absolutely amazing. He was very compassionate and understanding of my situation. I felt very at ease and he made me feel like family. Charmaine was also such a pleasure to talk to and always got back to me with any questions I had and always reassured me and helped with my anxiety.

    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.

    When my insurance company refused to cover my LTD, it put myself and my family into a very difficult position. Rajiv Hate and his team guided me through the daunting process and gave me back my dignity as father and provider to my family. Words can not express my gratitude or how much I can recommend him. If you feel your situation is not as it should be, I implore you to at least have a conversation with him as he will be direct, honest, and deliver on any promises he may make.
