History

Beginnings

Tully & Associates, PLLC was founded by Mathew B. Tully, Esq. in the back bedroom of his ski home in Hunter, New York shortly after he escaped from the World Trade Center in New York City during the tragic events of September 11, 2001. At the time Tully was employed in the legal department of Morgan Stanley, one of Wall Street’s most prestigious brokerage firms. He also served in the United States Army as a Field Artillery Officer and was a Federal Law Enforcement Officer with the United States Department of Justice.

The law firm’s first clients were family, friends and co-workers who knew they would receive quality legal services at affordable prices. In the beginning, the firm focused exclusively in the areas of criminal, family and employment law, civil rights and real estate matters. Due to word of mouth and positive media coverage, the firm quickly outgrew the back bedroom of his ski home. The firm moved into a state-of-the-art office building in Albany, New York near Albany International Airport.

In the spring of 2004, Greg T. Rinckey joined the firm after having served in the United States Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG). During his service with the Army JAG Corps, Captain Rinckey served in many different assignments, including two years as a prosecutor and an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. Rinckey spent his last three years in the Army JAG Corps as a Criminal Defense Attorney with the Army Trial Defense Service and served his last year in Washington D.C. working on Criminal Appeals at the Army Defense Appellate Division. He was Honorably Discharged from the United States Army JAG Corps in April 2004 and received the Meritorious Service Medal for his Service to the Army and the Nation.

On January 1, 2005, Tully & Associates, PLLC became Tully Rinckey & Associates PLLC. On January 1, 2008 with the addition of new partners, and the opening of new offices the firm changed its name again to Tully Rinckey PLLC.

Present

Since its inception, Tully Rinckey PLLC has been one of the fastest growing law firms in the Capital Region.

The firm has been recognized for its ingenuity and entrepreneurial excellence in the business community and in the legal profession. Tully Rinckey PLLC is rated a “Top 50” law firm and named one of the “Great Places to Work” by the Albany, New York and Washington, D.C. Business Journals. The firm represents a new era of modern full-service law firms and is one of the first in the area to staff a full time in-house marketing and customer service team. The firm’s rapid growth and success are perpetuated by the emphasis each employee places on customer satisfaction, long-term relationships, uncompromising client services, and high ethical standards.

Future

A major firm initiative will be to expand its business related legal services in the Tech Valley area.
