Monticello, NY (Law Firm Newswire) April 23, 2019 – On February 28, 2019, Sobo & Sobo continued its growth and expansion throughout the Hudson Valley Region by opening the law firm’s eighth regional office at 553 West Broadway, Monticello, NY. Although Sobo & Sobo Monticello attorneys will focus on the firm’s core area of law, personal injury litigation, the firm’s full legal services will also be available through this office.

The Monticello office is in the renovated former home of prominent judge Lawrence H. Cooke. Judge Cooke was one of the most celebrated politicians and judges in Sullivan County history. He served on New York’s highest court and rendered several judicial opinions that helped shape New York law.

In Beach v. Shanley, Judge Cooke wrote the court’s opinion that the Shield Law permits a reporter who has been called before a grand jury to withhold the name of confidential sources without being subject to any sanction for criminal contempt. Judge Cooke lived in his home at 553 West Broadway until he passed away there on August 17, 2000 at the age of 86. Today, several landmarks in Sullivan County have been named after Judge Cooke, including the Lawrence H. Cooke Supreme Courthouse and a local cemetery.

Managing Partner Gregory M. Sobo announced the completion of the renovation project and the opening of the Monticello office. “Sobo & Sobo is extremely proud to open an office in Monticello to serve the people of Sullivan County with an even more convenient location where they can receive our brand of exceptional legal representation,” said Mr. Sobo. “We are honored to continue the tradition of legal excellence exemplified by Judge Cooke’s career and achievements,” he said.
