Summary

Sean’s years of experience as an active-duty US Army Captain in the selective and prestigious US Army Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps are a valuable asset to Tully Rinckey PLLC’s military law practice group. Having served his country honorably at the largest military installation in the world in Fort Hood, Texas as a Judge Advocate from 2009 until 2013, Sean is an aggressive and tenacious advocate for all service members facing legal issues. He is able to pull from his significant and diverse experience as an active-duty attorney in the Army JAG Corps, and as a civilian military law attorney, he forcefully and efficiently represents service members in both administrative and criminal proceedings. Sean originally joined Tully Rinckey’s Albany, N.Y., office as a Senior Associate, where he was first promoted to Partner and eventually Managing Partner of the firm’s first footprint in the state of Texas.

As Managing Partner of Tully Rinckey PLLC’s Houston office, Sean oversees all of the office’s operations while concentrating his practice on military law; routinely handling cases involving Article 15s, letters of reprimand, courts-martial and officer/enlisted separation proceedings. Sean also handles federal labor and employment law cases and security clearance representation.

Sean also is a member of the Houston office’s Insurance Law Practice, where he assists clients with bad-faith litigation cases, first- and third-party coverage disputes involving CGL, business auto, commercial and residential property, and ERISA policies.
