Rinckey Named to Appellate Division’s Prestigious Character and Fitness Committee

July 5, 2007 – Albany, New York – Greg T. Rinckey, Managing Partner in one of the fastest growing Capital Region law firms Tully Rinckey, PLLC has been named a member of the Committee on Character and Fitness for the State of New York Appellate Division’s Third Judicial District. His five-year appointment came from Presiding Justice Anthony V. Cardona. The primary role of the Committee is to deter attorney misconduct and preserve the reputation of the Bar. Attorneys must undergo an extensive selection process in order to be named to the committee.

Attorney conduct is guided by the Code of Professional Responsibility. Before prospective attorneys are admitted to the New York State Bar and allowed to practice law in New York State they must be personally interviewed by the Committee on Character and Fitness. Members of the Committee decide if the candidate has the moral character to uphold the Code of Professional Responsibility and if they are deemed qualified to practice as an attorney and counselor at law in the state. The Third Judicial District includes Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster counties.
