Melanie-Ann DeLancey, Esq.
Personal Injury Lawyer
I earned my undergraduate degrees in Political Science and International Relations from Syracuse University. I went on to attend Syracuse University College of Law where I graduated cum laude and was a member of the Justinian Honor Society. While attending SUCOL, I was on the Executive Board of the Syracuse Law Review. I was also a student attorney in the Children’s Rights and Family Law Clinic, as well as with the Mental Hygiene Legal Service- 4th Judicial Department. I was the President of the National Women’s Law Student Association and worked as a Research Assistant.

Growing up, I was very close with my great-grandmother. She had a saying that stuck with me from an early age— you are not better, or more important, than anyone else on this planet, regardless of your circumstances in life, and vice versa, no one on is better than you. I was taught very early that regardless of upbringings, careers, or social status, everyone deserves to be treated equally. Unfortunately, in our society, people are not always treated equally and I found that a career as an attorney would help me do my part, and hopefully make a small difference.
I love the team environment that Sobo & Sobo fosters. While I may be the attorney “assigned” to a case, there is no shortage of people that I can turn to in order to bounce ideas off of. Everyone is willing to collaborate and help each other ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.
