Tiffany Jacobsen, Esq.
Personal Injury Lawyer
Growing up, I was always interested in helping others. That, coupled with my love for the ever-changing nature of law, made pursuing a legal career an easy choice. I attended Pace University for undergraduate school. I majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Psychology. While at Pace University I was a member of the Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority and the Criminal Justice Society. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in 2014. Following college, I was interested in pursuing a career in the law. I went back to Pace University to obtain my paralegal certificate, which was obtained in March 2015.
I began working at Sobo & Sobo as a paralegal in July of 2015. I was beyond excited to interact with clients and help them with the truly difficult situations that they have been unfortunately placed into. My passion for the law grew in my time as a paralegal, so much that I applied to law school.
I went on to attend Pace University School of Law. While in law school, I was part of the Mock Trial team dealing specifically with civil law. I was also a student attorney with the Legal Aid Society in Goshen, New York. I worked at Sobo & Sobo throughout law school to emerge myself in the nature and dealings of the cases which we handle.
Since completing law school, I have volunteered with several local organizations such as the New York State Bar Association, Middletown Bar Association, Orange County Heart Association, and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Organization.

The thing I love most about my job is the ability to help others. We meet clients at a time when they need support and someone to advocate for them. I can be that voice. It’s rewarding when I can negotiate and achieve results for individuals who put their trust in me, protecting their interests and asserting their rights when they have been wronged.
I grew up in a family of Law Enforcement, my Grandfather was a retired Police Officer with the NYPD and was an Investigator working in the Insurance Industry. My Mother worked for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. I have several cousins who work in Law Enforcement or Corrections. I have always been interested in the Law and the various aspects of it.
