"Like every kid would think his dad’s a hero, he was my hero. He had a wrench instead of a cape." Robert H.

Robert’s dad was a master mechanic. He raised seven kids, provided for his wife, made sure the bills were always paid and there was always food on the table. When Robert and his siblings would wish for extras, like a new bicycle, they may have been told, “We don’t have the money,” but when Christmas came, everything they hoped for was under the tree. His father left really big shoes for Robert to fill.

“Robert’s father was involved in a car accident that clearly was not his fault. He had a bad injury that affected his life, that needed a ton of treatment, that affected him every day.” Greg Sobo

The accident occurred in Middletown, NY when a truck struck Robert's father's vehicle from behind. The accident really took a toll on Robert’s dad. He began experiencing back pain and headaches. Robert watched as his hero became slower, more cautious and scared. Even though it was hard to see his dad like that, he did all he could for him, taking him to the doctor for treatments.

“This one just really took its toll on him -- in a physical and mental way. He just wasn’t the same.” Robert H.

Although the events and injuries after the accident didn’t create a black and white case, Sobo & Sobo took it on. They were able to attain a settlement for Robert’s father, but unfortunately his dad passed away just before the case closed. Through the hard work of Greg and the team at Sobo & Sobo, Robert’s dad was able to continue to care for his wife even after his passing.

“Other than having my dad here with me now, nothing from the start of meeting Greg and him taking the case, until now -- I would change absolutely nothing.” Robert H.

When you talk to Robert about his experience with the Law Firm of Sobo & Sobo, it is clear that it was wonderful. He describes being treated like royalty by the person at the front desk all the way up to Greg and his father Gary. At Sobo & Sobo you don’t feel like a number, you feel like a person. Even though the firm handles the cases of thousands of injured people each year, they understand that your individual details, your story matters.

“There is no one else. I mean, it sounds like a cliché or whatever, but if you go to Sobo & Sobo, you know you are going to get quality attention and care.” Robert H.
