Hiscock later moved to Syracuse, and in 1855 he founded with his brother Frank the law firm known today as Hiscock and Barclay. L. Harris Hiscock was prominent in Democratic politics and served as Onondaga County Surrogate Judge from 1852 to 1856.
While in Albany as a delegate to the 1867 state constitutional convention, Hiscock was murdered on June 7, 1867, by George W. Cole, a major general in the Union Army who accused Hiscock of having an affair with Mrs. Cole. Cole was acquitted at his 1868 trial on the grounds of "momentary insanity."
