Lifelong friendship aside, Founding Partner Fred Sullivan believes Patrick W. McGinley is one of the finest attorneys he’s ever met. Patrick W. McGinley believes Fred Sullivan is 100% accurate in his assessment.

A member of the Bar for 52 years, Attorney McGinley has served on the New York State Supreme Court and the NYC Criminal Court. He’s been a prosecutor, a litigator, and an Administrative Law Judge for the Waterfront Commission of NY Harbor, a position he still holds. He was the New York City Commissioner of Investigation for four years and is a veteran of the United States Navy. Attorney McGinley attributes his long and interesting career to clean living and his dedication to the Olympic ideal.

When asked to join Sullivan, Hayes & Quinn by childhood stickball chum Fred Sullivan, Attorney McGinley heartily agreed. His status, Of Counsel, goes well beyond serving as a knowledgeable resource to his fellow attorneys. He’s called upon to try cases in the courts, a role he relishes and one in which he was recently described by a federal judge as a “superb trial lawyer.”

Patrick W. McGinley’s associates know they can also count him as a ready source of Oliver Wendell Holmes quotes. It’s therefore appropriate to describe Attorney McGinley’s career by saying, “Every calling is great when greatly pursued.”
