About HKQ Law

HKQ Law, headquartered in Kingston, Pa., is a diversified Northeastern Pennsylvania law firm that provides legal representation and services to victims of personal injury; businesses, corporations, banks, non-profits, institutions and municipalities; and individuals and families seeking representation in matters involving estate planning and administration, real estate transactions, trusts, wills and Marcellus shale gas leases. Established in the 1940s, the firm’s motto, “No one will work harder for you®,” is based on HKQ’s core belief that hard work and preparation are the keys to success in the courtroom. The firm represents clients throughout the region, including Wilkes-Barre, Kingston, Scranton, Hazleton, Stroudsburg, Allentown, and many other communities in Luzerne, Lackawanna, Monroe, Wayne, Lehigh, Wyoming, Northampton, Carbon, Schuylkill and surrounding counties.


The firm’s Personal Injury Team, led by Attorney Joseph A. Quinn Jr., has won some of the largest verdicts and settlements in the history of the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton area on behalf of clients involved in all types of personal injury cases, including medical malpractice, car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, aviation accidents, unsafe vehicles (crashworthiness), dangerous or defective products, workers’ compensation, construction site accidents, insurance bad faith, dangerous drugs, defective children's products, nursing home abuse and neglect, and falls due to unsafe conditions (slip and fall).

Attorney Quinn is widely regarded as Northeastern Pennsylvania’s top personal injury lawyer, and one of the best in the state and country. He is one of only 100 attorneys in the United States - and one of only three in Pennsylvania - honored with membership in the Inner Circle of Trial Advocates. He is one of only 500 attorneys worldwide to be chosen as a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. He has been a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer every year since the program began and has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America every year since the publication was established in 1987. Best Lawyers also named him the top personal injury attorney for Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley in 2011 and 2012. In addition, Best Lawyers, in conjunction with U.S. News & World Report, has designated HKQ a Tier 1 Best Law Firm for Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Law in Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley.

The firm’s use of cutting-edge technology and access to premier expert witnesses are second to none in Northeastern Pennsylvania.


The firm’s Business Team provides comprehensive, integrated legal services to many of Northeastern and Eastern Pennsylvania’s leading businesses, corporations, banks and non-profits. The Business Team handles a wide array of business-related matters, including banking and finance, creditors’ rights, lender liability defense, business planning and succession, corporate and business structuring, mergers and acquisitions, commercial litigation, contracts, commercial transactions, labor and employment law, labor contracts and negotiations, employment discrimination law for employers, non-compete agreements, mediations and arbitrations, zoning and land use, commercial real estate sales and purchases, construction law, and telecommunications.

The HKQ Business Team has been designated a Tier 1 Best Law Firm in Banking and Finance Law for Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley by The Best Lawyers in America and U.S. News & World Report. In addition, many of the commercial lawyers in the firm have been awarded the highest rating for ethical standards and professional ability by Martindale-Hubbell, a national lawyer rating firm. This rating signifies that their peers rank them at the highest level of capabilities in their respective areas of the law.

Since the firm’s inception in the 1940s, the Individual Legal Services Team has assisted individuals and families in the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton area with many of their legal needs, such as estate planning and estate administration, residential real estate transactions, agreements of sale, leases, installment sales contracts, trusts, wills, living wills, powers of attorney, health care directives, living trusts, medical POAs, irrevocable trusts, private foundations, DNRs, and elder law matters. Since the advent of Marcellus shale gas drilling in Northeastern and North-Central Pennsylvania, the firm has assisted many landowners in securing gas leases that protect their rights and advance their financial interests, as well as forming entities such as limited partnerships and limited liability companies for wealth transfers to succeeding generations. The Personal Legal Team strives to provide timely, quality legal services that an individual or family may need at a reasonable price.

As Hourigan, Kluger and Quinn addresses the concerns raised by COVID-19, the health and safety of our clients, employees and friends of the firm remain our top priority.

These are very difficult and scary times and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and symptom free. We recognize that so many of you are understandably anxious about your health, the economic impact of this pandemic and all of the consequences of social isolation.

We also recognize that many of you are anxious about how the coronavirus is impacting the Court systems, our firm and your cases. Although all of our offices are closed, our firm has remained fully operational and we have initiated procedures that allow all of our attorneys and staff to work remotely from their homes. Each of us and our staff will respond to any emails and calls about your cases as quickly as possible.

Our Federal and State Courts have instituted significant changes in their calendars as a result of the coronavirus. Although most courthouses are closed to the public, and Hearings and Trials will be delayed for some time, there are matters that can proceed telephonically and by video. Despite these changes in the Court calendars, we are working diligently on your cases and are determined to do whatever we possibly can to assure an early and just recovery for you and your loved ones. Even under these difficult circumstances, we believe that "Nobody will work harder for you than we will."

With regard to new potential clients, we are not in a position to have an in-person new client meeting, but we will be conducting these initial meetings via phone. New potential clients should call us for a free telephone consultation at (570) 287-3000.
