Alexander McCue, our founding partner, who later became a Judge, started practicing law in 1850 in the City of Brooklyn. Twenty years later, he joined two other distinguished Brooklyn lawyers to form the firm of McCue, Hall and Cullen. One of those partners, the Honorable Edgar M. Cullen, progressed through the New York judiciary to become the Chief Judge of the State.
