Recommendation for Rachel Abbott.
I highly recommend Rachel Abbott from Coughlin & Gerhart in Binghamton, NY. Rachel guided me through the divorce process with honest and timely guidance. She is the reason that we were able to come to an acceptable settlement. Her support staff is excellent too.

Best choice for divorce attorney
Rachel was very clear in explaining the process and steps that needed to be taken when working through my divorce. She took my ideas into account and explained the pros and cons of each option. She always took the time to sit and discuss and I never felt rushed. Her communication was excellent and I always got a response to my questions within a few hours. I would highly recommend her and her team.

Hospital Negligence
I met with Attorney Rachel Abbott concerning injuries a family member sustained while a patient at a local hospital. Although Ms. Abbott told me that I did not have a case, she took the time to explain to my "why". Even though I was not going to be a client, Ms. Abbott took the time and answered ay question I had. I was confident with the information Ms. Abbott provided to me and as a result, our family had peace of mind and was able to put this matter to rest. I felt at ease speaking with Ms. Abbott. She is not only extremely knowledgeable about the law, she is genuinely caring and sympathetic. I would definitely contact Attorney Abbott should I have any legal needs in the future. I have no doubt I would be in good hands.

Thank you for your review. Medical Negligence cases are extremely complicated and expensive to pursue. I am glad you had a positive experience with our firm even though we were unable to help.

Caring
Rachel was very caring, she tried to put herself in our shoes (although that was very hard to do). Our daughter was in a auto accident and as a result has a Traumatic Brain Injury. She could see the future our daughter would have and did everything to help her get the money she will need for the future. She keep us informed with everything she was doing. Rachel gave us 100% of her knowledge and was not afraid to get the help from other lawyers in the firm. Our daughter did get a settlement without going to trial but we would gladly give it back if we could turn back time.

Personal Injury Claim
We were referred to COUGHLIN&GERHART LLP by my husbands employer when my daughter and her step sister were in a car accident Feb. of 2016, the other drivers fault. My daughter had a broken back in multiple places and had surgery, we hired Rachel Abbott for her case and she was awesome to us and our daughter. She did everything she could to make things easy on us, like paperwork signing. She did everything she could to get my daughter the best settlement she could from the other party. Very professional, courteous, a great lawyer. Would recommend her to anyone.

Personal Injury
I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle. Rachel provided much needed advice in dealing with the various forms that the car owners insurance company was sending me. She worked diligently on my behalf and got me a good settlement. I was extremely satisfied. I would definitely hire Rachel again.

Car Accident
Ms Abbott was very professional and understanding of my family's needs and concerns about my car accident. She interviewed and requested the appropriate medical files needed to settle on my case. I was very pleased on the time it took Ms Abbott to get a settlement from the insurance company. Ms Abbott kept me updated on the progress of my case. I would differently hire her again and recommend Ms Abbott.
