June 24, 2013 – BUFFALO, N.Y. – Just one year after entering Western New York’s legal services market, the full-service veteran-owned law firm Tully Rinckey PLLC has moved its Buffalo law office into a newly constructed and substantially larger location near the suburb of Williamsville. There, the firm has leased 5,090 square feet of office space at 5488 Sheridan Dr. As of today, the office is open for business to the public and fully operational.
Tully Rinckey PLLC’s story began after Mathew B. Tully escaped the tragic events at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and he moved with his wife from New York City to upstate New York. In 2004, he opened a law practice in Albany with his former fellow ROTC cadet Greg T. Rinckey, a former Army captain, Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) attorney and assistant U.S. attorney for the eastern district of Virginia.
Mr. Tully recently served as a lieutenant colonel in the New York Army National Guard, and in April 2012 he was deployed to Afghanistan – his third overseas deployment since founding the firm. He has recently returned from active duty and a subsequent medical retirement from the U.S. Army, following a long recovery from injuries he sustained during a suicide bomber attack involving a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) on Aug. 7, 2012. As a result of his service in Afghanistan, Mr. Tully was awarded the Combat Action Badge in May 2012, the Purple Heart in September 2012 and Bronze Star in February 2013.
“Our firm continues to find that the Western New York legal market is ripe for business growth and development,” said Tully Rinckey PLLC Founding Partner Mathew B. Tully, Esq. “Our success in Western New York and the range of additional markets we have entered is attributable to the fact that we run our firm like a business, with dedicated support staff departments that focus specifically on core functions innovative to law firms of our size to include recruiting, marketing, information technology, finance, and a range of other critical areas. This structure allows our attorneys to focus solely on legal work and our support staff to focus solely on serving the lifeblood of our firm – our clients.”
Tully Rinckey PLLC’s Buffalo expansion continues the firm’s upstate growth trajectory, which began in August 2012 with the opening of a full-service office in Syracuse. Next came the opening of the Buffalo office last January, followed by the opening of a Rochester office last July. Tully Rinckey PLLC offers Western New Yorkers a full menu of legal services that cover the areas of family and matrimonial law, criminal defense, labor and employment law, personal injury, estate planning, bankruptcy, military law, and appellate law.
Tully Rinckey PLLC is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that has over 50 attorneys throughout its six offices in upstate New York, Virginia and the District of Columbia. For five consecutive years, Inc. magazine has ranked the firm on its Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies, most recently ranking it at 3,535 for an 86 percent revenue increase between 2009 and 2012. The Albany Business Review recently identified the firm as the sixth-fastest growing company in the 11-county Capital Region and CenterState CEO, a Central New York business leadership and economic development organization based in Syracuse, has named the firm an “Economic Champion.”
