A long-time ally of distressed and insolvent businesses and individuals throughout New York's Capital Region, Bob is the Senior Counsel of Tully Rinckey PLLC's bankruptcy practice. He came to the firm with over three decades of legal experience.
Bob's objective in joining the firm has been to expand its bankruptcy practice, particularly in the areas of Chapter 11 (business) and Chapter 12 (farm) reorganization. He continues Tully Rinckey PLLC's tradition of representing debtors and creditors in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 proceedings and bankruptcy litigation.
Bob joined the firm after running his own general practice firm in Albany for a dozen years. Throughout his 30-plus-year legal career, he has always practiced law in the Capital Region. At the firm, he provides free initial consultations.
Bob has successfully confirmed Chapter 11 plans in diverse cases, including a rural Delaware County acute care hospital, a swimming pool builder and water park developer, a major printing company and an ante-bellum ladder manufacturer. He has also represented creditors committees in a Broome County and Pennsylvania baker, a mid-Hudson building products supplier and a consortium of banks in a case involving a purported investment company behind a massive Ponzi scheme. Bob has represented secured and unsecured creditors as well as Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 trustees in virtually every aspect of bankruptcy.
Bob received a juris doctorate from Albany Law School and a bachelor's degree in political science from LeMoyne College. His admissions include the New York State Bar, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Southern and Northern Districts of New York, and the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
