Gary M. Sobo, Esq.
NY Real Estate Lawyer | Managing Partner
I Graduated from Rutgers University with Bachelor of Arts in 1965. I then graduated Rutgers Law School, Newark, in 1969. My time between college and law school was spent in service in the U.S. Army where I was trained as a counter-mortar radar operator. Training aside, I found my time in the Army was a unique opportunity to meet people from all over the country, coming from many backgrounds.

“I have worked with Sobo & Sobo many times, and I have seen Gary Sobo handle many real estate closings. Each time, Sobo & Sobo is the most prepared law firm at the closing table.” – Howard Mills
One of the things I love about my job is that it is never boring. There are always new people to meet and new problems to be solved. Even with thousands of closings done, I am amazed that unique situations keep occurring, needing research and thought to resolve. I always try to resolve these in a way most favorable to the client.
My experience includes two years serving with the Attorney General of the State of New York, involved with eminent domain proceedings and consumer complaints. I also served eight years as Assistant County Attorney of Orange County, New York handling the same issues, as well as being general counsel for the Orange County Community College. I have been conducting real estate closings for over 40 years. I have represented countless buyers, sellers, and banks in real estate transactions, both residential and commercial. I also have extensive experience in estate matters, having practiced in the Surrogate’s Courts since 1969.
My approach to real estate matters is simple: a good answer often starts with careful consideration and research.
