‘Economic Champion’ Law Firm Celebrates 10 Years

CenterState CEO

Charts aggressive, multi-market course for growth in 2014

Date: 4/7/2014

April 1, 2014 –Syracuse, N.Y. – It was ten years ago today that Mathew B. Tully, Esq. and Greg T. Rinckey, Esq. joined forces, forming what would become one of the nation’s fastest growing companies – Tully Rinckey PLLC.

Just 14 months after entering the Central New York market, the CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity named the full-service law firm an “Economic Champion.” The regional business leadership organization, also known as CenterState CEO, recognized Tully Rinckey PLLC for its economic contributions to a 12-county region in Central New York. And for five consecutive years, Inc. magazine has ranked the firm on its Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.

“When I look back at the growth we’ve experienced over the last decade, I am humbled, but not surprised,” said Tully Rinckey PLLC Managing Partner Greg T. Rinckey, Esq. “I credit the hard work and dedication of the Tully Rinckey PLLC attorneys and support staff with transforming the firm into a statewide and nationwide powerhouse. Expanding into Central New York isn’t the end of the road. We still have significant growth ahead of us.”

Tully Rinckey PLLC entered the Central New York market in 2012. The firm set up shop in Syracuse’s historic Franklin Square district and opened its doors on Aug. 23. At the helm of the Syracuse office is Partner Richard H. Sargent, Esq., an attorney with over four decades of legal experience, including focus on civil litigation, real estate law, and trust and estates. The firm’s criminal law practice is led by Partner Donald E. Kelly, Esq., who was invited to join the National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Lawyers for the year 2014.

Tully Rinckey PLLC now boasts close to 60 attorneys firm wide, practicing everything from family and matrimonial law, to criminal defense, bankruptcy, real estate law, estate planning, employment law, civil litigation, military law, business law, corporate and commercial law, and intellectual property law.

At the foundation of the firm’s exponential growth is the leadership and vision outlined by Managing Partner Greg T. Rinckey and Founding Partner Mathew B. Tully. They understand the key role that the discipline, tenacity, and unwavering focus taught to them in the U.S. Army has played in their success as attorneys and business owners, as well as the success of the firm’s clients. Mr. Tully sustained debilitating injuries while serving as an Army combat arms officer in Afghanistan in 2012. He was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries he sustained in a suicide bombing, on what was the fifth deployment of his military career. Mr. Rinckey sustained service-connected injuries prior to being honorably discharged from the Army Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps in 2004.

Tully Rinckey PLLC continues its onward march. Just one year after arriving in the Western New York market, the firm is moving into a space five times the size of its current office at 70 Niagara Street. And in a few short weeks, the firm will open a 6,140-square-foot, seventh-floor suite just steps from the White House in the heart of Washington, D.C., featuring over 20 offices and breathtaking views of the National Mall and Memorial Parks.
