About me

Ken McCauley

B.A. Hunter College

J.D. Albany Law


Born and raised in New York City, I originally moved to the Capital District at attend Albany Law School.  I am now happy to call this area home, residing with my wife and twin toddlers in Albany.


I started my own practice because I believe that every legal problem benefits from a fresh perspective when determining the best course of action. Managing my own practice allows me the flexibility to devote as much time as necessary to meet all my clients’ needs. I pride myself in providing the support and responsiveness each client deserves, but often does not receive at a larger firm.


My legal experience is varied and I am comfortable addressing a range of legal issues. As an intern at the New York State Liquor Authority, I cultivated a broad foundation in administrative law. Working at the Authority, I helped to construct a winning argument in a case before the Third Appellate Department. Upon graduation, I was honored to receive Albany Law’s award for highest academic standing in administrative law. Most recently, I have been workingto pioneer a new area of law – civil litigation designed to help people who have been victimized over the internet. If someone is using the internet to try to hurt you, the law may be just what you need to fight back. 


My current areas of practice include:

  • Criminal Defense

  • Traffic Violations

  • Internet Harassment

  • Appearances before the State Liquor Authority

  • Contract Drafting and Review

    I consulted with Ken on a potential case involving slander and harassment on the internet. Ken's expertise was invaluable, as was his general approachability and forthcoming responses. I've known Ken as an attorney and a friend, and I could not give a higher endorsement.
