The 35-lawyer litigation law firm Tully Rinckey donated 30 new coats for homeless veterans as part of the Albany Housing Coalition effort, which has helped more than 400 vets. One of the firm’s name partners, Mathew Tully, is a veteran himself and is a Colonel in the Army National Guard, which he has been a part of for 16 years. What makes this video brilliant is not just the firm’s laudable pro bono efforts, but that Chief Marketing Officer Graig D. Cortelyou got a TV news crew to report it.
Based in Albany and Washington, DC, the firm represents individuals in family law, matrimonial law, corporate law, commercial law, civil matters, federal employment law, criminal law, personal injury, bankruptcy, military law, government services, employee representation, real estate law and municipal law.
Tully says he has spent his adult life crafting goals believed too big to attain, then achieving them systematically through grit and determination. Long before he became a worldwide face for military and federal employment law, Tully says he was a working-class kid with big dreams and desire to match.
He has since become a pioneer in the field of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act litigation, winning several landmark cases that have greatly influenced the laws protecting United States veterans. Tully chose to dedicate his legal career to protecting and preserving the rights of veterans and reservists. After suffering from military discrimination at the hands of his employer, he received his Juris Doctorate from Brooklyn Law School.
