“Tully Rinckey did a great job on my case. They were extremely knowledgeable and had a great “bedside manner.” They was obviously also highly respected by the members of the board we appeared before.”

K.P. on Tully Rinckey

“I was in a tough spot because of an unfounded allegation at work. I’m just me, but my employer (a public agency) had unlimited resources and the option to end my employment. Attorney Greg Zappia and Tully Rinckey helped me defend myself, and we were able to reach an agreement that leaves me in good standing, with no mention of the accusation or associated hearing on my record. Without Tully Rinckey and Mr. Zappia this difficult time could have resulted in far worse for me. The unused portion of my retainer was returned a few weeks later, without a need for me to call and ask when I would receive it. An overall good outcome.”

T.A. on Partner Graig Zappia, Esq.

“Very thankful for the help and guidance I received from your law firm. Because of your law firm I was able to return to work with all my back benefits.”


“Steven Herrick is currently handling my legal dispute with my employer. The positive results in the case are as a direct result of his experience and wide range of knowledge in handling federal legal issues, etc. He has consistently shown his ability to focus on what is in the best interest of his client. In addition, his attention to detail can clearly be seen in his problem solving ability, and the conclusions he expresses in his verbal and written communications. He manages every detail in a concise, competent, and professional manner. A client can depend and trust Mr. Herrick to provide outstanding legal service.”

D.C. on managing partner Steven L. Herrick

“Tully Rinckey PLLC was instrumentally helpful in getting my disability insurance denial overturned. They put together all the information I sent and made a case in my favor. They persuaded the judge to rule on my behalf. I would use them again for any law assistance I might need.”
