Coughlin & Gerhart LLP

Building Relationships on Results


The Coughlin & Gerhart Difference

Since the earliest days of our predecessor firm’s founding in 1898, and as one of the oldest firms in the Southern Tier of New York, the attorneys of Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP, have been committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism, success, and involvement in our communities.

In addition to the results we have achieved for clients across New York State and Northern Pennsylvania, our firm and its predecessor firms have produced a United States Attorney, two Presidents of the New York State Bar Association, a chair of the New York Conference of Bar Leaders, a Commissioner of the Uniform Law Commission, majority and minority leaders of the New York State Assembly, several federal and state judges, the editor emeritus of the New York State Bar Association’s respected Journal, and many Presidents of the Broome County Bar Association, among other respected leadership positions in the legal profession, government and community.
