Deepest Sympathies on the passing of Attorney Arthur L. Piccone
August 5th, 2019
It is with great sadness and the highest respect that we announce the passing of Attorney Arthur L. Piccone. Attorney Piccone was a Principal Member of HKQ Law’s Business Team. His areas of concentration were commercial litigation and corporate law. He practiced law for 61 years, with over 40 of those years serving with HKQ Law.
Attorney Piccone was a mentor and advocate to the legal community. He served as President and Vice President of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and was a member of the House of Delegates, the Luzerne County Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, the Order of Barristers, the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board and the Pennsylvania Bar Foundation.
Attorney Piccone also played an integral role in his community that he called home, including as a member of Board of Governors, Dickinson School of Law of Penn State University, the Chairman of the Board of Clearbrook, Inc., member of the Hoyt Library Cultural Board and member of the Board of Directors at the Nature Conservancy, PA Chapter. Attorney Piccone attended nearly every HKQ Kids Helmet Giveaway as well as HKQ Law’s gift to the community, the Children’s Annual Holiday Movie.
Our deepest sympathies to the Piccone Family and those whose lives he touched. Our Attorneys and Staff will all miss him dearly.
