Best Lawyers in America© has distinguished Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP as a Metropolitan Tier 1 Best Law Firms® for the Binghamton region in the areas of Litigation-Labor & Employment, Litigation-Trust & Estates, Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants, Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs, Real Estate Law, and Trusts & Estates Law. The Firm has also received the Best Law Firms distinction as a Metropolitan Tier 2 Best Law Firm in the area of Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships).


Firms included in the 2024 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the United States. Thirteen C&G attorneys are included in this list for 2024. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for its abilities, its professionalism, and its integrity.

“Law firms serve a critical role in American life and ranking them is a key extension of our overall mission to help individuals make important life decisions,” says Morgan Felchner, Executive Editor at U.S. News.
