Distinguished Attorney & Iraq War Veteran, Mathew B.Tully, to Testify Before Congress

Tully Rinckey PLLC Founding Partner, Mathew B. Tully, will appear before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs this Wednesday, June 30th. His testimony will center on his insight into the current state of the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs Office of General Counsel. The House Subcommittee provides oversight on programs and operations of the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as those of other federal agencies that pertain to veterans.

Tully will testify on the ineffectual legal strategies currently conducted by the Veterans’ Affairs Office of General Counsel that often prolong Veterans’ Affairs employees’ labor and employment claims. He will testify that this leads to increased legal costs for individual clients and greater stress on the legal system as a whole.

“It is an honor to be speaking to the Subcommittee with regards to issues that I find important both professionally and personally,” said Tully. ” Representing the employees of federal institutions and military veterans has truly been a privilege and is something that I am very committed to doing,” he continued.

Tully is a service-connected disabled veteran and has also been a staunch force in defending Veterans’ Affairs employees with the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, Vietnam Veterans, and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, to name a few.

Besides professional insight, Tully also has personal insight into the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. He is a Major in the New York Army National Guard, served at Ground Zero after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He established his law firm, Tully Rinckey PLLC, in 2003, serving the legal needs of government employees in labor matters. Those legal matters included allegations of discrimination, whistleblower retaliation, disciplinary action, and USERRA claims. Today, the Washington, D.C. office of Tully Rinckey represents many Veterans’ Affairs employees who are fighting for their federal careers.
