About

Standing Up For Upstate Individuals Since 1937

Whether you are seeking compensation for injuries, pursuing justice for an untimely death, or fighting criminal charges, you will encounter many barriers. You need strong and trustworthy representation to assert your rights and overcome those obstacles.

Our law firm was established in 1937, serving Fulton County, the Mohawk Valley and beyond. The world has changed in 80-plus years, but our commitment to clients has not wavered. Our mission remains the same: advocating for the injured and defending the accused to the best of our abilities. We practice law with passion and integrity, which never go out of style. Over the years, we have adapted our methods to continue to provide leading-edge representation in personal injury, wrongful death and criminal law.

Our Multigeneration Family

Abdella & Sise LLP is literally a family firm. Bob Abdella has worked alongside his father, renowned trial lawyer George Abdella, both following in the footsteps of the founder of our firm, Ernest Abdella. The husband-and-wife team of Joe Sise and Robin Sise joined the firm in 2019. After nearly 25 years as a judge, Joe returned to private practice in the firm where his father, Bob Sise, once worked with Ernest Abdella. Robin is also a third-generation lawyer. Those strong ties carry over to the way we practice law; our family helping yours. We invite you to read more about our highly qualified and respected attorneys:
