Office Hours:
John J. Cooney is an attorney at Ruskin Moscou Faltischek where he is a member of the Firm's Health Law Department, White Collar Crime and Investigations practice group, and the newly formed Digital Media practice group. In addition, he works closely with the Municipal and Government Affairs Department, with a focus on government procurement law, including bid protest litigation. Professor Cooney recently returned to his firm after serving a year as Law Clerk to the Honorable Joseph F. Bianco in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York. He has successfully represented clients in a wide variety of sophisticated cases, including criminal and civil litigation involving federal and state authorities as well as complex government procurement proposals and disputes.

Prior to his law career, Professor Cooney had over fifteen years of management and leadership experience at various Fortune 200 companies. In addition, he is a former United States Marine Corps officer and combat veteran of the Persian Gulf War. After serving his country, Professor Cooney was trained as a software engineer at Columbia University, and his technical background proves particularly useful in the government procurement law arena as well as complex fraud investigations and litigation, which have increasingly involved information technologies and analytics. He holds a certificate in Software Engineering from Columbia University, a B.A. in Economics from Rutgers University, and received his J.D. from Touro Law Center, where he was at the top of his class in the evening division and as a member of the Moot Court Board was on the winning team in the Nassau County Bar Moot Court Competition. He has also served as a tutor in the Law Center’s summer bar prep program. In his spare time, he serves on the board of officers at the American Legion Post 694 of Northport, which actively supports Long Island's youth, veterans, and those in need.
Finally, he has recently published The New York Bar Exam by the Issues, with Professor Suzanne Darrow-Kleinhaus and Professor Myra Berman, a book specifically on the New York Bar Exam for publication by Thomson West.
