I became a lawyer to become an advocate for those who could not advocate for themselves. Throughout my life, I always wanted to be the voice for those who could not speak for themselves. During my time at college, I was captain of the Cross-Country team, as well as an Orientation Leader. Through these experiences, I understood that I had an opportunity to help those who needed help. These experiences further pushed me into the field of law, and gave me a desire to become a litigator. While at Pace Law School, I took part in several arbitrations and trial teams which helped build my confidence to continue to pursue this career.
During my senior year of high school (Warwick 2010), I took part in the New Visions Program held in Orange County, which gave me my first taste of the legal profession. While in this program, I took part in several different aspects of the legal field, including working as an intern for Orange County Justices and Municipal Courts, while also working at firms, and with local police departments. This gave way for me to continue my legal path at Sage College of Albany (2010-2014), where I was captain of the Sage Cross-Country team and studied Law and Society: Legal Research. While at Sage College of Albany, I worked in the New York State Senate, which helped me understand where laws were made and how to develop a legal mind for different forms of legislation. At this time, I was accepted at Pace Law School (2014-2017), where I studied to become a litigator. At Pace Law School, I participated on the Advocacy Honor Board as well as Pace’s Intellectual Property and Sports and Entertainment Law Forum, where I was published. I also participated and helped advise several trial, moot, and mock arbitration teams for Pace. I graduated in 2017, and passed the NY State Uniform Bar Exam in October of 2017.
I love that my job at Sobo & Sobo is unpredictable. Many people believe that personal injury cases are solely about motor vehicle accidents or slip and fall incidents, however, that is not the case in most circumstances. In addition to the legal aspects of our cases, we have an obligation to make sure our clients’ needs are addressed, and help them become whole again.
