About This Firm

About This Firm
Our Binghamton, New York, office is the headquarters for Hinman, Howard & Kattell. With over 180 attorneys and staff, we are a thriving place to work. Our attorneys span all practice areas, and our dedicated staff are regularly complimented by our clients for their courtesy and knowledge. We attract people who want to provide high-quality services to their clients while still working in a collegial atmosphere. Our clients range from international corporations to family-owned businesses to individuals seeking wills and house closings.

With our location in Central New York, our attorneys provide high-quality legal services throughout the state in a more cost-effective manner than our big city counterparts. We often travel to our satellite offices and to our clients' offices to provide the superior service for which we have become known. We also continue to serve all aspects of the Binghamton community's legal needs. In fact, HH&K has regularly been named the number one law firm by the Press & Sun Bulletin's Reader's Choice awards.

Our Binghamton office is located in the heart of downtown Binghamton at 80 Exchange Street in the historic Security Mutual Building. Artists and architectural students routinely visit the building to take in the views of the Broome County Courthouse and downtown Binghamton and to study the architecture of the building itself.

Our area has a variety of cultural and sporting events, and boasts miles of hiking, biking, and skiing trails within a short drive. Binghamton and the surrounding area are home to the Tri-Cities Opera Company, the Cider Mill Playhouse, the Firehouse Stage Theater, the Know Theater, the Roberson Museum and Science Center, the Binghamton Mets (AA baseball team), and the Binghamton Senators (AHL hockey team).

Binghamton is also home to the Dick's Sporting Goods Open professional golf tournament. Each year, HH&K sponsors the Saturday round of the tournament by offering free tickets to the community through the 'Enjoie the Day on HHK' program.

The lawyer Megan Cuniga would tell me to call her with any questions but would never answer the phone she told me she was entitled to my money before she had even done her job and then was unable to follow a simple directive and got offended when I told her I was angry about it.

I have used other law firms for real estate needs and found a significant positive difference with this law firm.

These lawyers were very interested in going along with what 'usually' happens in court here instead of actually working towards things I wanted. They were not willing to fight for what I wanted and were not near worth what they cost.
