Howard Poch, Esq.


Howard Poch, Esq.

Howard Poch is from Brooklyn and graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton (now known as Binghamton University), where he earned a B.A. in English/Rhetoric. After contemplating a higher degree in Literature versus a degree in law, he was accepted to Brooklyn Law School, graduated and was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1985.

Mr. Poch began his career as an associate at the Law Offices of Samuel L. Hagan. After five years, he became a partner at the firm of Hagan, Poch & Coury for another five years. In 1995 he founded and was the principal of the Law Offices of Howard Poch, P.C., for 16 years.

He is a member of the Brooklyn Bar Association, and has lectured before that organization on the topic of Estate Formation and Landlord-Tenant Law. He is known for his research, depth of knowledge of the law and staying current with any changes or updates.

“While I pride myself in always keeping up with changes to the law, I also pride myself in not talking down to my clients. I always want to be sure they understand every aspect of their case and I have found that talking ‘legalese’ to them does not help achieve that goal!”
Mr. Poch’s professional passion is to be the ultimate problem solver for his clients, while his personal passions extend to the theater, excellent books and a good single malt scotch whisky.
“We encourage our clients to have an open mind. We help people understand the risks associated with the courses of action available to them. The best thing I can do for my clients is give them a good dose of reality, not subject them to smoke and mirrors.”
