For the second year in a row, Capital Region law firm Tully Rinckey PLLC has joined Albany County Family Court in ensuring a merry Christmas for local families through participation in the Court’s eighth annual Adopt-a-Family program.
The program is organized through the Children’s Center at the Family Court, which provides a safe environment for children to play and learn while their parents are dealing with court matters. In its founding, the program was completely funded by the Center’s Board of Directors, who reached into their own pockets for the funds. Each year since, the Center has partnered with other organizations to sponsor about 15 families a year.
Members of Tully Rinckey came together throughout the month of December to organize their donation to one of the deserving families for the holiday season.
“We saw a wonderful opportunity to give a family the Christmas they deserve. The Family Court Children’s Center provides such a great service to kids by giving them an opportunity to escape from the adversarial atmosphere that can develop in Court,” said Greg T. Rinckey, managing partner of Tully Rinckey PLLC. “I hope other organizations follow our lead and sponsor a family through the Center next year.”
The firm’s family and matrimonial law department, which ranks as one of the largest in the Capital Region, regularly handles cases in Albany County Family Court.
