About Zachary

Learn Zachary’s areas of practice.

As an associate at Tully Rinckey PLLC, I handle both federal labor and employment plaintiff’s cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Merit Systems Protection Board – in which I defend the rights of federal employees against a range of abuses, including discrimination and retaliation claims, and wrongful personnel actions.  

In addition, I handle criminal defense cases in all town and county courts surrounding the Rochester area. I have enjoyed early success in aggressively and effectively representing federal employees and criminal defendants in both realms of his practice, and have created favorable outcomes using my outstanding research and writing skills in the large number of cases I have pursued to finality.

My experience with all aspects of the criminal justice system – prosecution, defense, and the judiciary – provides me with a unique perspective which places me in a unique position to understand each sides position in order to broker plea negotiations in traffic, violation, misdemeanor, and felony cases in any jurisdiction in Western New York State. Similarly, I carry that same aspect of my criminal defense practice into my federal labor and employment practice, where I often attempt to resolve discrimination and harassment cases on behalf of my clients.  

Ultimately, my steadfast resolve, uncompromising work ethic, and exceptional bed-side manner make working with me a comforting and fulfilling experience.
