Widely regarded as one of the region’s most successful plaintiff’s attorneys, Rob Fellows is the firm’s managing partner. Rob brings more than 39 years of experience and legal skill to the courtroom and to his clients, where his reputation for meticulous attention to detail, relentless preparation, and aggressive advocacy has gained him the respect of colleagues, judges, and adversaries alike.
"It’s a people’s endeavor. My greatest satisfaction is being a voice for my clients and getting a result that will have a real impact on people’s lives. In this area of law, you can make a real difference."
Taking the Time to Get to Know You
Rob believes that the firm’s strong connections with its clients are a major factor in its success. He says, “We take the time to get to know our clients as people, beyond the facts of their cases. We learn as much as possible about how being seriously injured has affected them and their family, not just physically but also emotionally. Since our focus is on getting our clients the maximum recovery, we need to understand the impact on the whole person.” Clients tell us, “You’re not a typical lawyer, because you take the time to speak with me.” Rob’s clients know they really matter to him.
When not practicing law, Rob can often be found in local clubs playing the Blues harmonica, jamming with other musicians or playing in his band “Cee Songbirg and The Sound Travelers” performing in New York City and the Hudson Valley. He is an avid cyclist and has also studied acting in Manhattan, appearing both in community theatre and film.
