Lawyers & Attorneys Serving Schoharie, N.Y.

Auto Car Accident Lawyer Personal Injury Attorneys Albany NY

LaMarche Safranko Law, a personal injury and criminal defense law firm, proudly represents clients in the Schoharie Valley region of upstate New York. A mostly rural area dotted with numerous farms, Schoharie County includes the towns of Schoharie, Cobleskill, Esperance, Fulton, Middleburgh, Richmondville, Sharon, and more. While the prime industry here is agriculture, there are several notable tourist attractions: Howe Caverns, The Iroquois Indian Museum, the Old Stone Fort, Vroman’s Nose, and the Apple Barrel Country Store and Café among them. The Catskills villages of the region have a number of historic hotels, as they were vacation destinations in the early 20th century. The Old Blenheim Bridge was among the attractions until it was destroyed by Hurricane Irene in August 2011.

The completion of Interstate 88 in 1989 permanently changed Schoharie’s footprint on central New York; among other things, several colleges and universities between Binghamton and Albany are more accessible in shorter periods of time. Reduced commute times to the Capital Region also have fueled growth in the I-88 corridor, and Schoharie has benefitted from its proximity to tourist attractions to the west, notably Cooperstown and nearby Brewery Ommegang.

The downside of more visitors is the increased potential for road crashes; no one knows this more than the people of Schoharie, who witnessed one of the most devastating such tragedies in October 2018 when a limousine crash in the middle of town took the lives of 20 people, most on their way to a gathering at Ommegang.

Motor vehicle operators of all types must follow established rules of conduct set out by New York state Vehicle and Traffic Law; unfortunately, the increase in distracted driving in recent years has led to a corresponding increase in danger to motorcyclistsbicyclists, and pedestrians.

If you or a loved one are injured in a crash involving any of these vehicles, it is crucial that your legal team knows the applicable law and knows how to navigate the system for maximum results.

LaMarche Safranko Law Testimonials


Vicki Testimonial Transcript
Well, I met George in 2014. My son was arrested for a criminal offense, and George—he has this ability, it’s just who he is. He’s genuinely empathetic and he’s very compassionate and he has the ability to just make you feel safe. You know? I just always felt I was in great hands and my son was in good hands and that we would have a good outcome of our situation and we always have. And he’s brilliant. He’s a brilliant lawyer. He’s very skilled and very creative. He has excellent rapport with all the judges and DAs and officials, and he’s always found a rehabilitative outcome for my son which I genuinely appreciate.

Laurie Testimonial Transcript
George was referred to me by my estate attorney. They go way back and it was a great referral, I don’t think I could have done any better, it was a very good match for me. Something that was really really instrumental in the whole thing was George keeping us up-to-date on what was going on and very much included. I was invited to be at all the depositions if I wanted to be and he gave me all the written depositions to read through, so I was always up-to-date on what was going on and I felt like a part of the process. I would definitely recommend George to other people. In fact, about 2 weeks ago I did. A friend of mine was in a pedestrian car accident, she was the pedestrian and is in pretty rough shape, and he was the first person I thought of so I actually asked him if it would be in his purview and he said yes. And I know that she’s very happy with him so far.

Jules Testimonial Transcript
What brought me to the firm was a personal incident where Andrew was recommended to me very highly by a family friend who’s also an attorney, and Andrew represented me to great satisfaction in that case. What impressed me the most about Andrew was his direct straightforward approach, and he has this incredible way of setting you at ease and yet telling you the good and the bad of a situation. I felt that he was very much a straight shooter and lived up to the reputation that preceded him. I would recommend them and Andrew Safranko to anybody in the world. They’re just that class of a group of people.

I would feel very comfortable recommending him.
