About our Ithaca, NY: office

Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP was founded October 1, 1973 by the merger of two existing Binghamton law firms. Its predecessor firms date back to the 1890s. It represents one of the oldest multi-service law firms in the Southern Tier of New York. The Binghamton Labor and Employment Law Firm of Twining, Nemia & Steflik merged into Coughlin & Gerhart, L.L.P. in January of 1999. The attorneys of Pearis, Kline & Barber of Binghamton became "Of Counsel" to the firm on January 1, 2007. The Ithaca law office of Jonathan O. Albanese joined Coughlin & Gerhart, L.L.P. on May 1, 2009. The firm's general civil practice is conducted throughout the State and Federal Courts at both the trial and appellate levels. Its lawyers are active in the Broome County, New York State and American Bar Associations, and its past and present partners include bar association officers and community leaders. The lawyers of the firm participate in a wide variety of community services, pro bono work, and take part in civic and charitable activities. Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP is a progressive law and vibrant law firm and serves corporations and individual clients by first understanding their goals and priorities.

      Bob Jones has become a friend as well as a counselor during his able representation following an auto accident which resulted in surgery and extensive physical therapy. He is an active listener, knowledgeable about the law and the adversarial nature of insurance companies and Medicare, works with an exceptional staff, and exhibits the highest ethical and moral standards, which combined to provide what I regard as a fair and just settlement. Thank you, Bob and paralegal, Tracy!

      I did not get the information I needed from the firm on time about my closing, despite my repeated calls. It was at the moment of closing that the firm announced that they were my attorney for the closing and charged me $450 that I never authorized. So not only did I pay for service I never bought, I also didn't get the service that both I and my bank paid for.

      Gary B. Kline and Denel Strong helped me with a real estate transaction this year and I am delighted to have had them with me on this deal. My transaction could have been bogged out by setbacks, but with their help, all the obstacles fell over like dominoes and I was able to close on schedule. Excellent attorney, truly exceptional communication. Denel answers all correspondence without delay. I'm extremely satisfied and would recommend them to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a property!
