Greater Binghamton Area Law Firm with Attorneys & Lawyers Serving New York State & Northern Pennsylvania
Our law firm proudly traces its lineage through its founding predecessors back to the 1890s, and in the nearly 120 years that have followed, we have become one of the most established firms in New York, its Southern Tier, and more recently, Northern Pennsylvania. We offer numerous highly experienced and skilled attorneys, diverse practice areas to meet your expected and unanticipated legal needs, and a core belief that everyone who seeks the services of a lawyer deserves to be treated as a priority, from the time they meet with us in an initial consultation to when their legal matter is resolved.
Our firm has grown to include seven offices in New York and Pennsylvania, but as we continue to grow, we remain committed to our founding principles as a law firm focused upon client relationships and our dedication to fully meeting the needs of our individual, business, and municipal clients.
The Coughlin & Gerhart Difference
Clients who retain our counsel discover the advantages of working with a firm that handles the matters reflected in our diverse practice areas, including business & banking law; oil & gas law; litigation & civil and criminal trials; accidents & personal injury; labor & employment law; workers’ compensation & social security disability; trusts, estates, & elder law; real estate law; and public, municipal, and education law — just to name a few. Although each of our practice areas encompass their own complex array of statutory and case law, they also frequently build off one another, and having a firm with attorneys who collaborate throughout the firm and across all offices often provides added value for our clients.
More than a dozen of our attorneys have been recognized for their skill and experience by being selected for inclusion in various yearly editions of the Best Lawyers in America®, Super Lawyers–Upstate New York Edition, and Super Lawyers–Rising Stars Edition publications. We have also been repeatedly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a "Tier 1" law firm in its Best Lawyers®–"Best Law Firms" regional ranking in number of practice areas. Our peer attorneys have also rated Coughlin & Gerhart attorneys as "AV Preeminent®" through the Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings process, a rating defined as "a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." We are also a proud member of The International Society of Primerus Law Firms, an international network of top-rated, independent law firms that have earned the right to display the Primerus seal of quality.
As one of the larger firms in the region, we have also acquired the kind of access to experts and other resources that can truly make a difference when a client’s most important legal interests are at stake. While these advantages are among our notable attributes, we believe our commitment to fostering a personal relationship with each of our clients, from the moment they walk through our office doors, is one of the defining characteristics of Coughlin & Gerhart that our clients truly value. Discover the C&G difference. We look forward to building a legal relationship together that starts with you.
