The town rests, geographically, at the eastern border of Chenango County, halfway between Binghamton and Oneonta, and the east town line is on the border of Delaware County. The Susquehanna River flows through the southeastern corner of town, and is paralleled by Interstate-88. New York State Route 206 intersects I-88 and New York State Route 7 at Bainbridge Village.
The town’s name was adopted, in 1814, to honor United States Navy Commodore William Bainbridge. The community was first settled about 1788 by a group called the “Vermont Sufferers”. These were people from land in the eastern part of New York, who had lost their claims due to land sales by Vermont for the same claims. The town was first called the “Town of Jericho” in Tioga County, before the formation of Chenango County.

We recommend you consider these Top 5 factors before retaining an attorney:1. Is the attorney’s practice limited to or significantly dedicated to speeding ticket defense or traffic ticket defense?
There are thousands of solo practitioners that claim to be proficient in 10 or more areas of law. While many of them can do a good job in certain practice areas, there is a good chance that they are not proficient in Vehicle Traffic Law or they may not be able to dedicate the time necessary to defend what they will call a “simple traffic” matter thereby hurting your defense.
At our law firm, we recognize your “simple traffic” matter is not so simple. In so doing, we handle your case with the proper attention it deserves. We know many things are at stake including hundreds if not thousands of dollars in fines, penalties, insurance increases, and time lost. Not to mention, we also know what very few lawyers know—a conviction to a simple speeding ticket can carry a 15 or more days in jail.2. Does the attorney have a track record?
Although no attorney can attest that their prior success can guarantee a similar outcome in future cases, its important that you have some knowledge of their past performance. For example, is your ticket their first ticket defense case? Is the attorney you’re speaking to experienced in the court where you received the ticket? Are they familiar with the Judge, prosecutor, police officer, and court staff?
