Tully Rinckey PLLC Is NY’s First Law Firm Certified as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business
Growing firm, founded by veterans, looks to new opportunities created by certification
February 19, 2015 – Syracuse, N.Y. – Tully Rinckey PLLC has become the first law firm in New York State to be certified as a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOB) under a state law passed last year.
The firm certification, made by the Division of Service-Disabled Veterans’ Business Development within the New York State Office of General Services, came less than a year after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act. The act aims to increase eligible veteran-owned business involvement in state contracting by establishing a six percent participation goal for such enterprises.
“This certification opens new opportunities that were previously just out of reach for Tully Rinckey PLLC and other SDVOB’s like us. We are honored to be the first law firm certified under this law and look forward to servicing the needs of state contractors, agencies and authorities from our offices across the state,” said Tully Rinckey PLLC Founding Partner Greg T. Rinckey, a former active duty captain in the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps. “If you are a state agency or authority or contractor seeking a qualified legal firm, Tully Rinckey PLLC, the first and only SDVOB law firm in New York, wants to do business with you.”
Mr. Rinckey’s fellow founding partner, Mathew B. Tully, is a service-disabled veteran. Last May Mr. Tully was medically retired from the U.S. Army after nearly two decades of military service. His retirement came following a long recovery from injuries he sustained during a suicide bomber attack involving a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device in 2012. As a result of his service in Afghanistan, Mr. Tully was awarded the Combat Action Badge, the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.
Mr. Rinckey also sustained service-connected injuries prior to being honorably discharged from the Army in 2004.
