Vale Judge Sorby: 1943-2020
His Honour was the first mentor of our founding Partner Lisa Ruggero-Salerno and taught much about life in the law.
“He was a great mentor to me as a boss and then continued to be when I established my own firm. He helped contribute to the success of Vizzone Ruggero as a barrister taking on many difficult cases with excellent results. I am honoured to say that he remained a mentor and friend for many many years. He was a well-respected man and VRT Lawyers are very sad at his passing,” said Lisa Ruggero-Salerno.
Vizzone Ruggero Twigg Lawyers stands with the legal community in passing on its condolences to Judge Sorby’s family including his partner, Judge Sweeney. The Sydney Morning Herald have published a wonderful tribute here to his Honour’s life here.
