Practice areas

Mathew B. Tully is one of Tully Rinckey PLLC’s two founding partners. In 2004, Mat worked with his friend from college, Greg T. Rinckey to establish the foundation of what is today Tully Rinckey PLLC. Mat is one of a small number of lawyers licensed to practice law in three different countries. He is an Attorney and Counselor at Law in New York State and is on the rolls of Solicitors in England and Wales as well as being on the rolls of Solicitors in the Republic of Ireland.

As a practicing Attorney, Mat is one of a small number of Attorneys alive today who has litigated and won before the highest Court in New York State (the New York State Court of Appeals) as well as had a Writ of Certiorari granted and a remand ordered by the Supreme Court of the United States amongst many other appellate victories in various Appellate Courts. While best known as an employment law Attorney, his current focus is helping mid-sized multinational businesses with complex legal issues.

Before launching his legal career in 2003, Mat served for three years in the U.S. Army as a field artillery officer. After suffering from military discrimination at the hands of his civilian employer, Mat went to law school and received his Juris Doctorate from Brooklyn Law School in 2002. While attending law school part time at night he worked in the Legal Department of Morgan Stanley as a paralegal, his office was on the 65th floor of 2 World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In 2012, Mat received the Purple Heart for injuries he sustained during a suicide bombing while serving in Afghanistan. His service there also afforded him the Bronze Star Medal and Combat Action Badge. His deployment to Afghanistan marked the third time since founding the firm that Mat left his business to selflessly serve the nation.

Great lawyer / law firm!
A good lawyer is hard to find. I engaged Mat Tully’s services about 6 months ago. I went into the case thinking I was going to be spending a lot of money for a pretentious lawyer / law firm that would end up overcharging me for very little in the end. His team of lawyers worked tirelessly on my case and helped me obtain the result I was looking for. The legal team at Tully Rinckey could handle any situation I threw at them, they worked tirelessly on my case and were courteous, respectful, compassionate, aggressive and responsive every step of the way. Mat Tully is the American dream. He left New York City after 9/11 to start a law firm by himself and has grown his business from scratch. His selfless service to our country and community is significant; he is currently a National Guard reservist. The values of service transcend to his business. If you are looking for a great lawyer, call Tully.

Won my USERRA case and thousands of others!
When I got back from Iraq, I learned that I lost my job during my deployment. Mat took my case for free and got me my job back PLUS $50,000 in case and $80,000 in attorney fees. I learned AFTER he won my case that he and his firm have won more USERRA cases than EVERY OTHER LAWYER in the COUNTRY COMBINED since the law took effect in 1994 (and remember he has only been doing this since 2003). I also that he left the law to serve in Iraq in 2005 and is now a LTC. You will never have a better lawyer than LTC Tully

Outstanding lawyer before the US Supreme Court
He took my brothers case to the United States Supreme Court and won!! He is a fighter who never gives up. I have met a lot of lawyers but I have never meet a lawyer who won before the US Supreme Court. His office has photos of him and his wife with the Chief Justice of the Court (Roberts). Hopefully we will never need to go to the Supreme Court again but if we do he is our man! One of the smartest lawyers in upstate New York.
