I recently had my first exposure to Peter Hobaica for the purpose of discussing estate planning for my wife and me. The planning adventure is just beginning for us. Our first meeting with Peter has built my confidence that we went to the right place. Discussion was free-flowing and I honestly felt like I was with family. There is a lot to be said for the personal touch.

Peter Hobaica represented me in an accident which had resulted in my having head trauma and other medical issues. Peter is first class all the way and it's a shame I can only give him the maximum 5 rating. He is easily a 10 or more. He is the most professional attorney I have ever met. I am so pleased I decided to choose Peter to represent me. Without his guidance and perseverance, I am not sure where I would be now. Peter is personable, honest, trustworthy, and extremely knowledgeable about the law and how to deal with the medical and insurance groups.. I highly recommend Peter and his law firm. I can think of no one I would rather have represent me when I needed help. Thanks Peter! Robert Carper

Brooks benson is absolutely amazing attorney highly recommended

I can not say thank you enough to the folks at Oot & Associstes with special thanks to Attorney David Phillipone and Paralegal Marie Podkowinski. Their patience with me and my case was so gratefully appreciated. They took time to listen to my cares and concerns and refused to let me be in the dark regarding anything to do with my case. They were only happy once I was happy. Never was I misled or felt anything less than appreciated by them. Not only was I a client, but they made me feel like a friend...I never felt like a dollar sign. I am extremely pleased with the results I have gotten with them and everything has been explained in Layman’s terms which only made this case that much easier. Thank you so much for ALL the time and HELP regarding my case and I will HIGHLY RECOMMEND you and your office to handle any case. Thank you again!!!!

Oot and associates handled my workers compensation case. Dave and his partners were extremely professional and kept me in the loop and engaged every step of the way. They worked very hard to get me what I deserve and I would highly recommend them!!

Oot & Associates are the absolute best hands down. Satisfaction guaranteed ! Attorney D. Phillipone is one of the best attorneys ever to have work on your case. He cares, he commits, he executes.

I repeatedly called my lawyer over a two month period and he never returned my phone calls. I would not recommend or trust them to handle any case especially when they failed to follow through on filing the correct documentation during the time period allotted them. I lost thousands of dollars due to their negligence and plan to file a complaint.

I had two very complex cases that were handled by Leah Oot with the utmost professionalism. Ms. Oot and her assistant were always available to answer my questions and assist me in anyway I needed. I highly recommend Oot and Associates!

We personally had a fantastic experience with Porter,Nordby and Howe, LLP. This firm stuck by our side for several years of fighting my case after my entire life was turned upside down... My husband and I are forever grateful to Mike, Eric Maureen and the entire staff of Porter Nordby and Howe for everything they did for us. Thank you is not even close to being enough said for them giving us closure on this situation after all these years. Some people think a case might be all about one thing but for me it was about closure. I am always grateful for that...K&J

Great law firm, got back to me fast and has been attentive to all my needs. Don’t hesitate... great value and real nice folks.

Mike Porter is an absolute powerhouse. He helped with my injury case from day one (before I gave him a retainer fee) and ended up winning the case. I was able to begin the process of putting my life back together. Thank you Mike!

This law firm, if you can even call them that has absolutely no integrity. These are NOT people you should entrust with your legal representation. Trust worthiness and integrity are everything in this realm and they lack both. There are many other options in central New York, go with one of those...any of those. I literally only was contacted twice over the span of 8 months!!! Every single time they said they'd get back to me in a couple weeks, I'd have to call them after 3 or 4 weeks only to get usually get ignored. It literally got to be so odd that it seemed like they were running down the clock on my statute of limitations. It really did...I really couldn't understand how someone would have that little integrity and communicate that little in an important situation like that, especially when they knew my statute was running down already. It got to be so sketchy that the only thing I can fathom is that there must be some angle where they knew the surgeon or were affiliated with the defendant some other way and were trying to intentionally mess my case up. This law firm as an absolute joke. The odd lack of communication got so bad that I finally called Mike Porter... I left a thorough message explaining to him what was going on politely and sure enough he couldn't even handle a simple task of a couple minute return phone call! I know that things happen and people get busy but I'll tell you what to only hear from them twice in the better part of eight months is absolutely despicable. I see a pattern here and it's def not a good one. There are a lot of other options out there and lawyers that will treat you with respect and dignity. I'd go on, but it really seems most of it has already been said. I'm not sure about the other partners here, but as they say... birds of a feather, and there are a lot of other horrible reviews out there. These are not the type of people you want to be putting your trust in AND representing you in important matters...the most important matters of your life!

Very professional always had answer when asked, went after the defendants with both barrels blazing I personally don't have a bad comment, I would recommend them to anybody who needs a good lawyer

Very courteous and extremely helpful. Found a law firm I will be using from now on. Will estate planning, business.

They keep their word they follow thru . Very anxiety free astompshere

This Law Firm doesn't mess around when it comes to getting money back in your pocket after an injury. Great service and an even greater settlement. If I was working for an insurance company I'd pray I'd never see this firm's letterhead in the mail.

I've had the pleasure of working with the firm and more specifically Cory Dalmata on numerous occasions and am beyond pleased with their work. Professional, responsive and knew they always had my best interests in mind. Thank you!

I Jay Brundage the owner of a realestate development company have used this law firm for over the past 12 years and from the paralegal Rebekah to the partners themselves have had only good relationship with them through a myriad of different transactions. They get results and give the same attention to detail whether the case is big or small. You can't go wrong with them as they are first class all the way.

I have worked professionally with Andrew Finkelstein many times and he is without a doubt one of the best attorneys in the country. His team truly cares about the clients and knows how to maximize the value of every case.

I will refer every one who needs a reliable law firm Finklestein and Partners is the one.

Great place to work. Amazing colleagues.

After my car crash in Saratoga Springs, I made the mistake of hiring the wrong lawyer in Albany. The first law firm didn’t fight for me and it felt like they were afraid of the insurance company. After 11 months of nothing getting done I knew I had to change attorneys and get a law firm that fights for their clients. I hired the injury lawyers at Finkelstein & Partners in Albany and it was the best decision I made. Everyone was helpful, especially my case manager Cindy Williams. She was always there for me and helped me through a really hard time. The accident attorneys started a lawsuit right away and the insurance company knew I was serious. I ended up losing my job because of the injury from the car accident and I needed a major surgery to my neck. Finkelstein & Partners was able to recover 100% of the available insurance so I could settle my case. All I can say is if you’re in a car crash and aren’t using Finkelstein & Partners, you should do what I did and switch to them. All I did was call them and they took care of the rest. I didn’t even have to speak to my old lawyers.

My friend is a client.. She is pleased with their handling of the her case.

    After my car crash in Saratoga Springs, I made the mistake of hiring the wrong lawyer in Albany. The first law firm didn’t fight for me and it felt like they were afraid of the insurance company. After 11 months of nothing getting done I knew I had to change attorneys and get a law firm that fights for their clients. I hired the injury lawyers at Finkelstein & Partners in Albany and it was the best decision I made. Everyone was helpful, especially my case manager Cindy Williams. She was always there for me and helped me through a really hard time. The accident attorneys started a lawsuit right away and the insurance company knew I was serious. I ended up losing my job because of the injury from the car accident and I needed a major surgery to my neck. Finkelstein & Partners was able to recover 100% of the available insurance so I could settle my case. All I can say is if you’re in a car crash and aren’t using Finkelstein & Partners, you should do what I did and switch to them. All I did was call them and they took care of the rest.

DONT use this guy. Very rude, unprofessional, cranky! So if you want to risk it. Go ahead. (I read his response below) No he never asked me for a fee as he claims. I would only call when I got some paperwork in the mail that I needed him to review, I would drop off the paperwork which was usually 3 to 4 pages. Then leave a message and wait a few days, when he wouldn't call I would call him. He then told me to come pick up the paperwork and read it myself. So I don't think its unreasonable to ask your lawyer to review some 3 to 4 page forms pertaining to the case. I thought that was what they were suppose to do. I never called him daily as he claims. Maybe if he focused more on being a lawyer and not babysitting students with his student rentals he would be more effective.

I have to say that Kevin is very "hardline". It's not that he's not capable of his job or dedication to his line of work, but response time and lack of "bedside manner" is an issue I felt while attempting to work with him. In my particular case however I felt he was unwilling to even attempt to ask or attempt to reach a settlement that was mutually agreeable, and he is sending a "letter of withdrawal" from the case. This is after years of documented medical professional opinions, witnesses, and medical testimony and clearly able to to argue my case, and his failure to attempt to reach upon any sort of damages, past and future to come, and how quick he was to wash his hands of my legitimate case is why this review is left. I'm positive that Kevin may be able help others in their personal injury suits, but the response and actions taken by him were unacceptable to me that has led to this "review". Kevin is a "bulldog", and I'm sure he's seen and prosecuted many cases in the past. He just is unable and/or unwilling to proceed in a matter that would conclude my personal injury suit. In no way am I saying he's uncapable. My personal opinion is that he only wanted to choose the path of least resistance and strong arm me into saying yes when I know the answer is no.

Kevin is very smart and aggressively represents his clients. I was very satisfied with his work and would not hesitate to use him again. It's better to have a good lawyer like Kevin than to rely on good luck or sympathey from the justice system.

Kevin Guyette was the lead attorney in a complicated intellectual property law suit and I was impressed with his mastery of the facts and his knowledge of the law and trial procedures. He is an extremely smart man and I would trust him to handle any litigation matter.

This guy is a joke and extremely RUDE. Called to ask a question even offering him a retainer and he was rude and unhelpful!!!
