“I was told by another lawyer that my case was too difficult because I had injuries before my car accident, because of all the negativity from other lawyers, I really did not expect anything from my case at all. SOBO & SOBO and Stuart Mosbacher proved all the doubters wrong. And I could tell from the very first visit that this firm was different. They were very positive and encouraging.” – Fernando De La Cruz
I was raised in a home with a father, mother, an older sister and two younger brothers. I found that I intensely disliked conflicts when there were disputes within our family. Even in elementary school, I periodically would try to resolve small personal conflicts that emerged. As I went through Middle School and High School, I found I had a knack for settling family squabbles. If nothing else, these experiences clearly prepared me for a career of capably resolving so many personal injury matters to the gain of so many clients.
What Do You Love About Your Job? – Assisting clients in securing the best possible legal recovery by getting to know, understand, and appreciate all aspects of their claims.
More than twelve years ago, I was able to secure a very significant legal recovery for two young boys and their respective families from the mid-Hudson region of New York. In that case, two young children fell off of a roof and had landed in a muddied patch of grass surrounding an apartment building after descending six stories. Amazingly, the boys managed to survive this tragedy, but they were terribly and permanently injured. The case was full of enormous legal obstacles. As was expected, the defendant repeatedly denied all responsibility for having caused the accident. However, backed by strong investigations which I had directed, including having retained a competent engineer along with a child psychologist, I was able to put together a credible theory of liability. I initiated the lawsuit for the boys; completed all necessary discovery; convinced the court that the matter should be permitted to proceed to trial; prepared the case for trial and in the end, I was able to secure a very significant and meaningful settlement just as we were about to begin jury selection. Further, after the settlement was negotiated, after several months, I was able to resolve a very substantial lien held by the local Department of Social Services in a novel way to the full satisfaction of my clients and their families.
I started in the field of personal injury as an attorney in the early 1990s. I have worked on behalf of accident victims continuously since. I am proud to say I have faithfully served many personal injury clients during those years. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have had to make a real difference in the lives of the families I’ve helped. I have every intention to continue serving the public in this specialized field of law for many years to come.
First and foremost, do everything I can to understand all aspects of my client’s personal injury claim, and then do whatever is necessary in an ethical way to help secure the most meaningful recovery which can be achieved under the circumstances.
