Dean McGee is a partner at McCabe Coleman Ventosa & Patterson PLLC and head of the civil litigation department.
After graduating first in his class at St. John’s University School of Law, Dean joined the international law firm of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP in its New York City office, where he litigated cases in state and federal court on behalf of Fortune 500 companies in the financial, pharmaceutical, entertainment and hospitality industries. A significant portion of his practice was also dedicated to pro bono work, where he represented a criminal defendant facing federal narcotics charges, secured asylum for clients facing persecution in El Salvador and Sudan, and conducted a trademark violation investigation on behalf of Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). During his time at Simpson Thacher, Dean took a year off from private practice to serve as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Judge William H. Pauley III of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
In 2020, Dean returned home to the Mid-Hudson Valley as an Assistant County Attorney, where he advised leaders of the Ulster County Government regarding litigation, contract negotiation, legislation, real estate transactions, and municipal law.
Dean lives in Kingston, New York with his wife and two children.
