Hinman, Howard & Kattell, LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: This is quite a solid firm to work for as an associate. You could not do much better elsewhere. You will find a pleasant mix of people and plenty of balance here.

Pros: The best thing about working here is the people you will be with. You'll get plenty of support from management when you need it. The firm understands you need some time off on weekends and you will have it.

Cons: There isn't much to say here except that the pay package could be improved and more transparency is also desired when it comes to hiring decisions and who gets bonuses.

Hinman, Howard & Kattell was created in 1902 by Harvey D. Hinman, Archibald Howard, and Thomas B. Kattell, and has occupied offices in the historic Security Mutual Building since 1905. The firm has a long tradition of public service: Senator Harvey D. Hinman was a confidant of New York Governor (later U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice) Charles Evans Hughes. Senator Hinman's son, George L. Hinman, was a Regent of The University of the State of New York, and a personal advisor to Governor and Vice President Nelson Rockefeller.
