Our criminal defense team has more than 200 years of experience practicing law. We have criminal defense attorneys throughout upstate New York, and they have deep roots in the communities in which they practice law. Some members of our criminal defense team cut their teeth working as prosecutors, so they know how the other side thinks. Other attorneys served as special assistant U.S. attorneys. Our criminal defense attorney team also includes retired judges. Another has so distinguished himself in court that he’s been certified as a “learned counsel” for federal death penalty cases. We are familiar with the strategies prosecutors frequently use and know how to counter them.

If you’ve been arrested, the government will go to great lengths to make you pay for whatever crime you are accused of committing. No matter what the charges are against you, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to make it a fairer fight.

Testimonials

“We cant thank you enough for your diligent efforts to help our son. You always returned our calls day or night and answered any and every question any of us had. You have a quiet demeanor but boy can you be a “Shark” in the courtroom! We never have, and hope to never be again in this situation with our child, but if we ever need a Criminal Lawyer or know of anyone that does, you and your firm will be highly recommended! Again, Thank you!”

E.F. on Associate Derrick Hogan, Esq.

“It is with the greatest satisfaction that I am writing this in regards to the legal representation I received from attorney Derrick Hogan. I never thought I would be in the situation of needing an attorney for defense of a possible DWI conviction, but here I was; bewildered, embarrassed, and feeling like I let my family down. From the first time we spoke, I knew right away that Derrick was the person I wanted to handle my legal matters. He is honest, sincere and maintains open communication. He made me feel like family and I could tell that he genuinely cares about his clients and their situations. Derrick is very professional, yet personable. He explained to me that results were not guaranteed, but that the end results could end up favorably, which they did. I have learned my lesson and Derrick did not judge me or my situation. One thing I clearly remember is the comment Derrick made; “You are a GOOD Person, who made a bad choice!” That statement really resonated with me. He got the job done brilliantly and I will always look to Derrick in the future should I ever need guidance or proper representation. He made my case a lot more pleasant then I was anticipating and he was always there for my questions. He is truly an outstanding person and I will strongly recommend Derrick to others who approach me looking for legal representation. Tully Rinckey should be very proud to have such a fine attorney on their staff.”

C.G. on Associate Derrick Hogan, Esq.

“I was most fortunate to be able to hire Derrick Hogan on two separate occasions to fight tickets for us. I cannot even begin to tell you what kind of a professional we were dealing with. His character matched his ability as an attorney. Having to hire an attorney for an out of town situation was a very difficult decision to make. I feel so blessed with dealing with this esquire. Mr. Hogan handled us like a symphony. He was extremely kind, brilliant, confident, sincere, and worked very hard on our behalf. He takes great pride in his work and it certainly shows. I have never in my entire life worked with anyone this professional or more highly qualified. If you decide to hire Derrick Hogan, you will have made the decision to hire the best attorney possible. Sometimes driving a Lexus is a smoother ride than driving a Dodge. You would be getting a “Lexus” with this lawyer. I give him five stars; he is a superstar himself. What a pleasure for me to recommend Derrick Hogan. Derrick is the absolute BEST of the BEST.”

K.F. on associate Derrick Hogan, Esq.

“Tully Rinckey PLLC’s professionalism put me right at ease. They had all charges against me dropped! I truly felt they earned my whole retainer and they even sent me back what was not used. I did not feel overcharged by Tully Rinckey PLLC at all. Their hard work kept me from getting a criminal record that would have affected me for the rest of my life. For this I am grateful. I have never been in trouble in my entire life. Getting arrested, being put in jail and losing my job, changed me to the core. Because of all the hard work done by them, I have a new life to live. For that, I cannot ever thank them enough!”
