"This firm was really great from the very start of my injury case to the very end. Yes, I am thrilled with my settlement, but what I did not really expect was how well the firm treated me while my case was going on. I sort of felt like an important customer at a super nice hotel. All of my questions and needs were always met promptly and with a courteous smile. What a terrific place Sobo & Sobo is for people who suffer injuries and tragedies." - Donald Bonner-Donnelly
I can remember thinking about becoming a lawyer as early as the fifth grade. By the time I was in high school, I was working for a busy law firm helping any way that I could just to learn about the law and helping people. My love for practicing law only grew stronger as I attended college, and thus I attended law school as soon as I could save enough money to afford tuition.
I truly love my amazing co-workers and support staff. During my legal career, I have had the privilege of working in some of the most prestigious personal injury law firms in the world. I have learned personal injury law and practice from some of the most notable lawyers. Despite this background, I can honestly state that at Sobo & Sobo I have never been surrounded by a more talented, energetic, and compassionate group of lawyers and staff. I love sharing ideas with my fellow colleagues here, and I love that we are all united in one goal to help the injured.
It’s funny, but one of the primary reasons I became a lawyer is because I love teaching. As a litigation attorney, my role requires me to teach all the time. Whether it is explaining a complex law to a client, or arguing the facts before a judge or jury, the law allows me to find ways to be a creative teacher, which is a role I really enjoy.
I am a member of the New York Trial Lawyers Association and do my best to help them support laws that protect our citizens from insurance companies and corporations. I am also a member of the New York State Bar Association, the Orange County Bar Association, and the Middletown Bar Association.
