About Nicholas

Learn Nicholas’s areas of practice.

Since joining Tully Rinckey PLLC, I have expanded my skills representing employees and employers in federal, state and private employment law matters, including claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower actions, prohibited personnel actions, disability retirement applications, disciplinary matters, and wage and hour litigation. I continue to help develop the firm’s labor law practice, representing unions, and all of their institutional needs, including unfair labor practice charges, collective bargaining negotiations, grievances and arbitrations. My work has included representation in New York State Courts, Federal District Courts, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Federal Labor Relations Authority, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, Federal Service Impasses Panel, and the National Labor Relations Board.

I also represent clients in the firm’s New York civil and commercial litigation and transactional practice, handling construction law issues, health law, property disputes, contracts, shareholder agreements, mechanic’s liens, landlord-tenant issues and many other matters. I have experience in a variety of dispute resolution mechanisms including mediation, arbitration and court proceedings.

Excellent attorney for federal employees
Nick recently represented me in a MSPB case and I can’t speak highly enough of him. He listened to me and addressed all of my concerns throughout the process and made me feel like I had the best representation possible. The judge hasn’t ruled on the case yet, but no matter the outcome I know I couldn’t have found a better attorney to represent me.

Nick represented a small group of us in a wage dispute with a former employer. Nick and his staff were extremely professional and corteous, always returning phone calls and emails promptly. We were involved, informed and included in every aspect of the case and potential settlement, always being treated with respect and integrity. And I can say for myself, was very pleased with the settlement amount...thanks Nick and staff!

Mr. Michael Nielsen
Nicholas did an outstanding job representing me against my employer the Department of Defense. He was very knowledgeable in government personnel/labor law and quickly drilled down on the facts surrounding my situation. He was always reachable and responsive. He treated me with respect and most importantly we were able to negotiate a settlement that included me keeping my job in the DoD. Thank you Nick and thank you Tully and Rinckey.

Excellent MSPB lawyer
Nick Devyatkin did an excellent job representing me in my case with the FAA/MSPB. He is very knowledgeable in federal requirements, orders and procedures(including federal bureaucracy). He was very focused on getting my case setted in a very short time frame (3 months) and we settled for more than I was looking or asking for. If you need representation in a federal employment case I would highly recommend you hire Mr. Devyatkin. Thanks Nick!

Nicholas Devyatkin/Federal Disability Retirement
Mr. Nicholas Devyatkin is the type of lawyer every client wants. He is a very thorough and competent professional who always had my best interests in mind. Mr. Devyatkin was very proactive in explaining my rights, collecting documents, contacting other agencies, and in providing quick and reliable feedback and answering all questions concerning the Federal Disability Retirement Process. What I especially liked about Mr. Devyatkin was his ability to remain calm when I felt like I was in a crisis situation. I would highly recommend Mr. Devyatkin for legal representation.

I was pleased with the services at Tully Rinckey PLLC and specifically Nicholas Devyatkin who represented an EEO and Wrongful Termination case against my organization. I would hire the firm again for employment related issues. If I had not retained the firm I would have been terminated just because they could. I am a NAF Federal Employee and have significantly less protection than the APF employees and Mr. Devyatkin represented my concerns effectively and efficiently. Additionally, this was a very emotional time for myself and my family, Mr. Devyatkin's guidance and council kept me on an even keel - Thank You!
