WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT MICHAEL WOLFF
“I never expected an accident to literally change the course of my life. My job, my marriage, my family, everything was at risk. Michael Wolff and Sobo & Sobo were so helpful and kind. Even though I lost so much in the accident, this firm helped me get so much back. I could never thank them enough!”–Elise Bazarte
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I love fighting for, and successfully protecting, the rights of clients. I receive great satisfaction in negotiating successful settlements to compensate them for what they have had to endure. I help to make them whole again.
WHY DID YOU BECOME A LAWYER?
I was raised to fight for what I believed in, and to help those in need. I am proud to say I have been able to accomplish both throughout my career. Over twenty years ago, I began as an Assistant District Attorney standing up for the rights of those who were victims of crimes. As the Supervising Attorney at Sobo and Sobo, I am still able to protect the rights of the injured due to the actions of others.
DESCRIBE HOW YOU APPROACH YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASES.
Each and every client is extremely important to me, and I fight for their rights as if they were a member of my own family. In doing so, I have been able to obtain settlements that others could not.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL IS IMPORTANT ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND THAT HAS HELPED SHAPE YOU AS A LAWYER?
One of the most important aspects of my background is my litigation experience. This has given me both the perspective and insight to maximize settlements on behalf of my clients for injuries sustained due to the actions of others. While the overwhelming majority of personal injury matters settle before trial, my clients can feel confident in knowing that they have an experienced trial attorney fighting for them.
