Summary

Greg T. Rinckey, Esq. serves as the Managing Partner of Tully Rinckey PLLC.

Mr. Rinckey concentrates his practice on military law, federal employment and discrimination litigation, and national security clearance mitigation. During his previous tenure as an attorney with the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps, Mr. Rinckey prosecuted and defended military personnel in over one hundred felony cases with charges ranging from drug possession to murder. He has represented federal and private sector employees in investigations and cases in front of the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Office of Special Counsel.

Since joining fellow Hofstra University alum Mathew B. Tully, Esq. to form Tully Rinckey in 2004, Mr. Rinckey has become a recognized leader in the military and federal employment law sectors.

In addition to his military law and federal sector experience, Mr. Rinckey serves as a certified New York State attorney for the child, where he represents children involved in family court litigation. In 2010, he was also elected to a three-year term on the Albany-Colonie Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

Mr. Rinckey is frequently called upon by local and national media outlets to offer his expert legal commentary on military and employment discrimination matters. Most recently, he has been featured on FOX News, CBS, and YNN.
